James is very congenial and knowledgeable. Our main issue with the tour was his car - it does not comfortably seat four passengers as well as himself. We were also not fully satisfied with his handling of our request for very little walking. In retrospect, we should have had him hire a driver and van so that he could spend full-time with us. I have to admit I never thought of it, but I wish he would have asked if we would consider it. It would have been worth the additional cost.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Michael, Thanks for commenting that I am "congenial and knowledgeable". However, I am disappointed that you found my car uncomfortable and that there was too much walking. As for my car, the web site states that it is a 4 door Mercedes sedan. However, I should also state that it is a model 350E which is not the very largest of the Mercedes sedans. As for the walking, the Washington sites require much walking as it is impossible to park close by. In retrospect, we should have had a separate driver and van.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Joe. I too enjoyed being with you. Best, Jim
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour on the 1st day of our 1st visit to DC. Jim is very knowledgeable about the area and really made an effort to tailor the tour to suit our interests. A great way to be introduced to this great city - thanks! We'd highly recommend this tour and this guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the nice comments. I hope you enjoyed the remainder of your trip and got to visit all the sites we discussed. Best, Jim

James was very considerate of my physical limitations. He added a great deal to the enjoyment of the tour. The FDR Memorial and James' interest in the period gave me a better sense of what the Roosevelt administration faced during the 1930's.
