John was a great guide. Very knowledgeable and explained things in a way that made you see it differently. If you want to know true history please take this tour. I learned a lot and John made it memorable. Bring smacks as it makes for a long day.

Loved the “hoods” that John took us to. Really appreciated John’s directness & honesty from his point of view. Good to see a real life experience- his being with the NPS here in WDC. He imparted history & wisdom & philosophy. Finally seeing background & history independently at the African American Culture & History Museum was uplifting. They’ve worked to prove themselves very real & equal. Their contributions to every walk of life & our collective history seems pretty special. They should be proud & we need to accept them. We are all humans on this earth!

Not Satisfying

The guide and driver were wonderful! The guide has an unlimited about of firsthand experiences. The tour itself was not great due to many tour destinations being closed. If this was explained prior, we wouldn’t have attended it. The Douglas Frederick and White House were inaccessible.

We had a great time. The tour was fun and full of information. It would have been nice to have more time at the actual museum as there is so much to see!
