Ellen is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Washington DC. We got along well. Her tour was thorough. She guided through the gauntlet that is the Capitol building, Supreme Ct., Arlington, Nat'l Archives, and on, all the while providing just the right level of fascinating historical details. She guided us for two days. I don't give 5 starts very often. When I return to Washington DC for sightseeing (and there is too much to see) I will ask her guide us again.
