Ellen is a true historian and lover of the architectural and cultural aspects of Washington DC. We were a group of six and spent the entire day with this woman visiting the National Archives, Library of Congress, Arlington Memorial the 9/11 Monument along with a great lunch at the Old Ebbitt Grille. The time spent walking, writing, talking and learning was worth its weight in gold. We look forward to doing it again and recommend him any of our friends on this fine tour of our country's capital.
