“"Un-BO-lievable" Tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

My husband Jentry organized a private night tour for 6 of our close friends and us, most were first time visitors to Washington, D.C. and our tour and our guide Bo was absolutely fantastic, seriously our group had a super-wonderful great time! Bo REALLY knows his stuff and he provides an energetic, entertaining presentation with passion and great insight. This is a MUST-DO for first time visitors, locals, history lovers and those who don't want a cookie cutter tour. Lastly- my husband and I have traveled plenty and have taken a lot of tours and this was hands down the best tour we have ever signed up for! Thank You Bo! June & Jentry Nix III

We have done many walking tours before, but this one was the best! Bo was absolutely amazing and our whole family loved his enthusiasm and unusual presentation! We will definitely be doing another tour with him on our next visit!

“Information packed!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2013

I took Bo's DC in a Day tour this past weekend. Although the weather was far from gracious, Bo's infectious attitude about the history of DC amazed me and kept us walking through the rain to hear more. He is obviously passionate about history and knows those things that goes in most people's ears and out the other. The tour started in Dupont Circle and weaved through Georgetown...through the Foggy Bottom... to the Watergate Building...and ending near the National Mall. If you take the all day tour, wear very comfortable shoes, as one in my party did not and she suffered the next day. Thanks Bo. I will take another one of your tours next time I am in DC without hesitation. If you send me your address, I will send you some authentic Chicago giardiniera. Chuck

“Amazement”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013

We have just finished our "DC in a Day" tour with Bo, which was absolutely marvellous. Bo's passion and enthusiasm is truly infectious and his knowledge of DC and its history made the whole tour so absorbing that we felt taken back in time. Bo welcomed questions and was comprehensive in his knowledge. Bo's consideration for his guests, such as stopping in shady spots to explain interesting details, ensuring we were ok for toilet breaks and were regularly refreshed were much appreciated on a hot day. Bo's insight and knowledge made this tour one of the best tours we've done in all the many countries we've visited. I would recommend to anyone visiting DC to take this walking tour. Every moment was so interesting and the day passed so quickly I was sad that it was over. The lunch stop was good, with a great variety of food at a reasonable price and some good conversation. We wish you all the very best, you do the city proud. Many thanks, Anne and Alan

“DC by night - a delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013

We have just completed a tour of Foggy Bottom and the memorial mall - by night.
We were lucky enough to have a private tour with Bo who was great at answering our questions and also nice enough to laugh at our jokes.
We met Bo at the appointed time at Foggy Bottom metro station - simple and easy.
Bo started the tour by telling us he was passionate about DC and by the end of tour we knew just how passionate. His knowledge and enthusiasm for the city and its history is infectious. We are now firm fans of DC too.
The best bit about the tour is seeing the Memorials at night. There's a lot less people around and the memorials are beautifully lit. To see the reflection of the Washington memorial in the pool as seen from outside the Lincoln memorial is breathtaking. We were also very fortunate to be practically the only ones at the WW2 memorial, so were able to appreciate it in quiet solitude.

We had a great time, and thoroughly recommend Bo's tour. Our evening tour started at 8pm and ran over 2.5 hours. Wear walking shoes and bring your camera!
