  • “National Mall Tour (de Force!)”

    My wife and I took a tour of the National Mall with Bo and Lisa, and we couldn’t have been more pleased with the experience. I’ve never been one to take guided tours, usually preferring to do a self-guided or audio tour, but I can’t overstate how much my experience with Bo and Lisa elevated our entire vacation.

  • “Our eyes welled up at the more emotional moments”

    Bo and Lisa are incredible tour guides AND have a beautiful love story. They were patient when our group got a late start and did not skimp on our two hour evening walking tour of the national mall. It was a great mix of light exercise, informative monologues and independent time to explore the monuments.

  • “We genuinely felt that we were touring DC with friends – they are both really that good!”

    We did all of the tours offered by Bo and Lisa and they were all fantastic. The service was the best we have ever experienced – from booking (Lisa has the patience of a Saint!) to actually going on the tours (Lisa and Bo incredibly passionate about their country and it’s history).

  • “Wonderful trip to Arlington Cemetery”

    What a special day with a fun and knowledgable guide, Bo. He shared interesting stories and expertly guided us through the grounds at our own pace. He patiently dealt with our energetic eight year son. We all had a great time and would highly recommend it to others!
