A Recent Review of this tour

We have had many private tour guides in the US and abroad, and Christian is one of the very best! We had an amazing day in Washington DC. Christian has exceptional knowledge not only of the city and its many sights, but also of our nation's history and government. He completely customized the itinerary to meet our objectives, and also made valuable suggestions on other sites that fit our interests. Thank you, Christian, for a day we will always remember!
