Thanks so much for your flexibility!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: And thank you for YOUR flexibility as well. I hope the wedding was lovely. I am sure that you are anxious to return to some warmer weather. Have a good trip back and I hope you and your family get to spend some more time in Washington one day.
Joanne was just a great guide, our whole family including our daughters aged 13 and 16 liked her a lot! She spoke clear and good to understand English, was well informed and also funny. It was a pleasure and the best we could have done, to stroll around with her in Washington as we only had a day. So, the 3h spent with her has given us a great idea of the most important sights plus history of Washington. We can recommend her to everybody!

Carolyn WhitneyUnited States
Joanne was an excellent tour guide. She was very knowledgeable and gave facts that were new to me on the tour. She also showed grace when problems occurred with the bus. The group really appreciated her tolerance level. Everyone commented that Joanne made the best tour the best tour they had ever done. Outstanding!
Martha HornUnited States
Joanne is a very personable guide who took my list of street addresses for my 1960's work and home locations and designed a nostalgia tour for me. Then we were off to things I hadn't seen and the new neighborhoods that didn't exist when I lived in DC. She has an excellent sense of humor, good ideas and I have no hesitation in recommending her. The office handled things well too....seamless booking and confirmations. Well done!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I was looking forward to this tour from the moment we started talking. What a privilege to meet one of the brave women who pushed against the boundaries of tradition before it became fashionable. Thank you for being so much fun to be with and open to exploring the streets that I hadn't even seen myself. I'm so glad we found Barack Obama's street! C'mon back and we'll go hiking through Rock Creek Park!

Stanley HimesUnited States
Joanne did an excellent job on our Hamilton themed tour of the outside of The White House, Old Executive Office Building, Washington Monument, WW II Memorial and the Lincoln Memorial. Her knowledge of history was breathtaking and she was able to keep my 16 year old son interested.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Dr. Himes. It was such a pleasure to spend the day with you and your son Amir. The day went so quickly. Please tell your son I say hello and that I thank him for reading the Gettysburg Address out loud. It will be a nice memory to have every time I visit the Lincoln Memorial.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mark - it was a pleasure to spend the day with you and your family. I think your girls will grow up to be, as Obama said about his girls, beautiful and smart, but more importantly, thoughtful and passionate. Thank you for coming to Washington.
Gianmaria DelzannoUnited States
