Ralph was fantastic! He interacted with everyone in a personal way and made the tour great!
Hi Both last nights tour with Ralph & Ali and last weeks with JohnA & Cesar were excellent. We saw more than we could have done any other way and more importantly understood more of what we were looking at
We appreciated Nick's humor, enthusiasm, and knowledge. He made the daytime and the night tours very enjoyable.
Nick was a great guide. He made it a very educational and fun. We take many tours in our travels and he was one of the best we have had. We also left a good review with Expedia. If we come back to D.C. We will be requesting him.
John was a wonderful tour guide, his vast knowledge of the city (and every other topic) and booming laugh made for a great experience. The driver was safe and smooth as well, and the bus was comfortably air conditioned and in good condition.
We really enjoyed your tour and I am recommending USA Guided 2 all my friends Joey was very informative and a true delight thanks again.
We toured with Christopher today and he was more than great! Very upbeat, courteous, and concerned about each individual. Give that guy raise!!!
