Just had a tour led by Henry and driven by Charles; HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND. He was so very informative and you can tell he has spent hours and hours studying to give as much relevant information about each and every memorial. He infuses his personal story just enough to make an emphatic point and tie everything today. And, he is... More

We had a wonderful experience and would recommend to everyone! Friendly, helpful guides and drivers! Night tour was awesome. The only negative feedback that I have is the location of where you start the tours at L'Enfant plaza. You should have an actual building with shelter. It was not comforting standing in the dark on a desolate street waiting, and... More

This was our first guided bus tour of DC after having visited the city 3 times in the past. I must say the knowledge our driver had of the city's history and its culture has given me a new appreciation of Washington DC. Charles Smith is the best tour guide I've had and I highly recommend him and DC Trails.... More

My family and I (six adults) went on the Friday night tour around D.C. Between all the sites we saw and the amazing amount of knowledge our guide, Henry, had to give to us, it was one of my favorite parts of our trip! I would highly recommend finding a tour that Henry is guiding. With his big personality, sincerity,... More

Toured the city with my family and had a great experience. Henry was awesome, very funny and very, very knowledgeable. He knew so many facts about the sites along the tour, this man needs a raise, he makes the tour great. My family and I had to take a smaller shuttle bus over to Arlington National Cemetery due to construction... More

My trip to George Washington's home was amazing. Enjoyed walking around the estate, that was my priority. But after walking through museum and education center one could spend a couple more hours. Not to mention grabbing a bite at restaurant. The tour was also especially enjoyable because our bus driver- Mr Charles Smith-gave a wonderful presentation of Old Alexandria. He... More

I met an amazing guy by the name of Henry and he was just the nicest guy ever and I'm so glad for him to be our tour guide. We were with him all day on D.C. Trails and we even took the night tour with him! He treated us so well and he was the best. He taught me... More

It was great to have a ride to the locations after walking through museums in the days prior to our DC Trails Grand Tour. DeeDee, our driver and tour guide, was wonderful with answers to all our questions, stories and information about all the stops and a real concern for everyone on the tour. Her extensive knowledge of the city... More

So much more than just Mt. Vernon All the way there we were given so much information. I loved the fact that I was standing sitting and exactly where President Washington was.
