Kevin was a delight in presenting a lot of material in an informative way. We loved his openness to questions, as we ask a lot of them. We learned a lot more than I think most people who live in Washington know themselves - which is exactly what we wanted. I really hope to go back and do this again... More

We did the Smithsonian tour with Becca. She was great with the kids (ages 10 and 7), and I had a blast too. I only wish we would have booked a longer tour! Thank you!

Matt was excellent! Even if you've been living in DC for a while, you're sure to learn a lot of really interesting facts about the history of the city and the monuments you walk by everyday.

Becca was our guide for a private tour of the DC monuments. It was well worth the money as we were able to fit everything we wanted to see into 4 hours. The time flew by. Becca was extremely knowledgeable and fun. She showed/told us about all the extra things in addition to the standard Monument information. We had a... More

The wife and i hit DC for a long weekend to celebrate our anniversary. We decided to take a tour, and of the 30 or so we looked at, we kept coming back to DC Insider, mostly because of the reviews. Bo is an amazing guide with a WEALTH of knowledge. It was great to go on a tour that... More

Myself and a small group just did the Foggy Bottom Tour at night and it was an experience. Truly one that we will always remember. We had been to DC before but to have the guide to help us through the memorials was amazing. Our guide Matt was knowledgeable, fun, kind and everything else you would want. He made us... More

We found this tour through a friend. We decided to go with a group of friends and had the best time. We did the After Hours Tour and loved it; riding all over the city on the electric bikes which made it a breeze. Everywhere we stopped we were given great facts and information, Bo is very knowledgeable and friendly.... More

I joined Bo and Becca on the nighttime electric bike tour around the city. I am a local and have participated in several tours but this was by far the most memorable. The unique electric bikes made it possible for us to cover several monuments/locations in a short amount of time and the time spent between destinations was FUN (who... More
