We are so happy we did the walking tour with Emily. She was really knowledgeable, easy going and friendly. We visited all the major sights and learned some cool facts.
Definitely wear your comfy walking shoes!

Comfy walking shoes are a MUST! Dressing for the weather and activity is crucial to an enjoyable experience. Thanks for sharing that tip for everyone! And thanks for joining Emily on a walking tour. She is such a fun person to spend a day with, and we are delighted that your experience was awesome!

Bo and his wife,Becca, took a few of us (4) on an electric tour of 3 Washington Monuments. I would say I was a little skeptical of the bike at first. We were a group of "senior citizens" and I was not sure of my bike skills. It was great! Bo is a very energetic and knowledgeable tour guide. I highly recommend this trip. It will go down as a memorable event!

One of our favorite things about the electric bikes is that they don't require serious bike skills (we aren't exactly super-skilled bikers, ourselves!). The bikes do all the work, so all you have to do is ride. We love seeing the city this way, and loved sharing it with you! Thanks for joining us and for your review. It was memorable for us as well!

Our tour with Bo was filled with details about the planning and history of DC that kept us interested and excited for the entire 2.5 hours. The time flew by because of Bo's enthusiasm and knowledge of the monuments. He even helped us find some great places to eat dinner after the tour.

It's amazing how quickly a tour goes by when you have a really excellent guide. Bo certainly has that effect on his tours! And we are always happy to recommend eateries- food is one of our favorite subjects!

Toured on a hot ,humid Tuesday evening. Beau was great giving us lots of information about DC and the monuments. Covered a lot of ground. Would highly recommend this tour. Much better than doing it on your own.

There is so much information about DC and the monuments that you would never know without one of our guides, and it would be such a shame to miss out. Glad that you didn't! We like to joke that the humid days are the best to tour a former swamp- it feels so authentic! Thanks for braving the heat to join Bo on From Swamp to Swank. We appreciate your review!

I only had one day to see as much of DC as I could. The goal was to hit as many monuments as possible. I really wanted to avoid aimlessly wandering around wasting time. Essentially, I wanted to have a plan and to learn about the city. This is where DC Insider Tours came in. The completely comprehensive 6 hour tour on foot presented by Kevin was perfection! Why DC insider tours? This team goes above and beyond to give you DC history, architecture, facts and stories that you won’t find anywhere else. We hit all of the stops I couldn’t live without. At the end, I know I wasn’t the only one wishing we had a few more hours. I will definitely be back for another tour offered on my next visit.
