A Recent Review of this tour

September 27, 28, and October 1 and 2 four of us toured the DC area with Tom. He was knowledgeable about the area, fun, and flexible. We had a great time! Tom's tour gets a 5 out of 5. We saw so much more than we would have seen on our own! Thank you Tom. Lou & Gary Mayer
