My girlfriend and I visited DC from Toronto with only a weekend to explore the city. We wanted to see sites from several of the organized tours so we splurged on a Private 4hour Tour that combined "DC in a Day" Tour with "Ghosts, Scandals, and Murders". It was worth every penny! We met Becca at 10:30am and started off with an informative overview of the history of the city. She then walked us through Foggy Bottom, past the State Department, across the National Mall, past the Washington Monument, and up towards the State Capital; we cut through the city to see the FBI building and Freedom Plaza before making our where to the White House. Becca was full of energy and amazing stories throughout the entire tour and definitely gave as the "inside scoop" we were hoping to hear.

We took the walking tour of the city with Bo. He was fantastic! Of course, he was knowledgeable about the normal sight seeing things but it was the insider information that was the most interesting. Bo tells a lot of back stories that you've probably never heard about DC. I tried to stump him by inquiring about random things such as old buildings we passed by but it didn't work. He had a story or informative comment about everything I pointed out. I would love to take his other tours. This tour is worth the time and money!

We called DC insiders on a whim Monday afternoon and were greeted by a friendly and cheery voice who booked us on the Swamp to Swank, Foggy Bottom and Monuments Tour. The meeting location was very easy to navigate to and Bo was waiting, early, with sign in hand, as to not mistake him with any other tours or groups walking through the area. It was a small group (3 of us) but that did not deter Bo from giving a sold out forum performance. His energy and enthusiasm for the city is inspiring and contagious. Without giving away any specific details Bo creates a well scripted journey from Foggy Bottom's past to future. Also, do yourself a favor and pick Bo's brain. As we stopped at various points we even noticed people from other tour groups stopping to listen in to the wealth of knowledge Bo had to share. You can really feel his passion for the city and it's history. From start to finish we can not say enough good things about this tour. We are looking forward to the next one. - Jeremy and Diane

My family and I went on the 6 hour DC Insiders city walking tour. Bo, our tour guide, was very energetic and knowledgable. He kept our attention by constantly providing facts of DC's rich history, culture, scandals, and major/minor landmarks. Bo continuously made sure everyone was comfortable and answered any/all questions. I recommended DC Insiders tours and want to join another tour soon.

We are long time residents of DC and enjoyed every second of this tour! Bo clearly has a love of this city and a great gift of stortytelling. Walking through Georgetown and northern Dupont Circle will forever be a magical glimpse into a fascinating past and cast of characters. Thanks for making our streets become even more alive, Bo.
