“Very enjoyable and informative Arlington Cemetery Tour”
My husband and I took this tour with Bo. Normally we prefer to tour sites on our own but I’m very glad we decided to take this tour. The tour itself was both very informative and educational. We particularly enjoyed watching the changing of the guard and wreath laying ceremonies at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. There is a lot of walking, some of it uphill, so comfortable shoes are a must.
“Our guide Bo, was a history grad and it showed”
For a city teeming with rich history, a guided tour was a must-do for a history buff like me. Our guide Bo, was a history grad and it showed! At every memorial/monument, we were treated to it’s fascinating back story, and those of the great men and women who’ve been honored there. It was a bleak rainy day, but Bo kept us in good cheer with his narration, interspersed with funny and interesting historical anecdotes. Overall highly recommended.
“We learned more than we could have just by seeing the memorials on our own”
My family, including four kids from ages 9-17, heartily enjoyed this tour. Bo was a fantastic guide and did a great job condensing major events in U.S. History into manageable segments. We learned more than we could have just by seeing the memorials on our own.
“Bo knows DC”
Our guide, Bo, couldn’t have been nicer, friendlier, more knowledgeable, and more patient/humorous with the kids peppering him with questions! Walking pace is easy enough, and the kind of unofficial info passed along really enhanced the tour.
“Charming, informative and such an all round lovely person”
Where do we start on how wonderful our tour was. Bo was our guide for the 2 hours and he was fantastic. Charming informative and such an all round lovely person. I am so pleased that we found this fantastic activity. Our only hope is that Bo as rewarded enough.
“I am learning stories that I didn’t even know”
I teach at a high school in the Bronx. I am here on this tour today and it has been absolutely fantastic. The tour guide has been extremely informative. I have been teaching U.S. history and government for the last five years and I am learning stories that I didn’t even know. I’m going to take them back to the classroom. It’s been fantastic and the kids have loved it. It’s funny. It’s engaging. They have had plenty of time to see all of the exhibits and all of the monuments. It’s just been a blast!
