Great Tour, Fantastic Guide

This was a great tour! Richard was a fantastic guide. I've toured the archives several times with a variety of groups, and I have never enjoyed the visit so much. I also learned more in the first 15 minutes of the tour with Richard than I have in all of my past tours combined. He is extremely knowledgeable and has passion for early American history. He guided the tour in such away that I felt like I didn't have anyone around me for viewing the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. He also navigated around large tour groups and school groups so I never felt like I was part of a crowd or unable to see an of the other displays. Overall, his insight and information that he shared made this tour one of the best I've ever had. Definitely ask for Richard when you book a semi-private or private tour.
