Ray Fankhauser

Washington DC night tour was well-paced, the bus was spacious and clean, and the tour guide was highly knowledgeable. More importantly, he knew how to get that knowledge across with a mix of concise sentences and a healthy dose of humour and wordplay. No chance to visit as many monuments in so little time on one's own.
