The vehicle was totally inadequate to transport four adults. The whole trip was very uncomfortable for all concerned. When originally booked we were informed that driver had a mercedes, which we obviously incorrectly assumed would be a larger model than the one that was used. Also having to pay the parking meter ourselves when we had paid a large amount up front for the day. We did not get to visit the places that we had requested with earlier correspondance. Numerous requests to go to Arlington made.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: David, thank you again for the nice note & book. But, I regret you didn't enjoy the tour. As for my 4 door Mercedes 350E, it is the second largest Mercedes sedan & advertised to seat 5 people comfortably. As for the parking fees, it is stated that customer pays the approximately $5 fees, & actually I paid one of the fees. As for Arlington, we discussed the history in length but decided not to visit due to the excessive uphill walking. Jim

James was an outstanding guide. Since two of our party of four had walking issues the fact he has a car was a huge plus for us. In addition to having to deal with people with ambulatory issues the weather was not good at all. However, Jim's in depth knowledge of where to go and what to see under those circumstances was invaluable. It truly was like seeing DC and Georgetown with an old friend who had lived there for years. We highly recommend Jim. Try as you might you won't find a better guide.

Touring DC was an amazing experience for our party of 2 thanks to James E. He is so knowledgeable about the history of each site that it seemed as if we ourselves had gone back in time during the tour. We loved the fun facts and the ease with which James handled our many questions. All of the major sites were accessed as we were touring in his comfortable vehicle. Surely we saw 3 days of sites in 1 day and had so much fun doing it! I've already booked a 2nd tour. Thanks James.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! I too enjoyed the tour with you & Deborah. I look forward to our next tour in a month. Best, Jim

We had a very comprehensive and enjoyable private 3 day tour with James and saw everything that was on our list. James was very knowledgeable and knows an amazing amount about the history of the memorials etc. We thoroughly enjoyed our tours and left Washington quite tired, with sore feet but full of information about what we'd seen.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Kay, thank you for your kind comments. I too enjoyed being with you and Rodney. Best, Jim

Excellent 6 hour tour designed to suit my wife, 6 year old grandson, and my needs and wishes. James fed us an abundance of historical information in a very organized manner, modified to reach our grandson. We found him very personable and his commentary informative and educational. During a break for lunch at Pot Belly Sandwiches (13th & E Streets), James gave us a self-guided list of must sees for the next two days. A most enjoyable tour experience. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the nice comments. It was a pleasure being with the 3 of you. And, I hope your Grandson fully recovers, he is quite a trooper! Best, Jim

Jim was the perfect guide to help me manage a DC trip for my elderly parents and son. Informative and helpful, he also provided insider information that reduced my stress level as the driver and leader of our group. You will not regret hiring Jim to help make your trip interesting, fun, and worry-free.
