Had Mr. History as a tour guide... So knowledgeable about Washington and especially Abraham Lincoln. Made the tour a lot of fun and very interesting as the same time. Perfect way to see the major tourist spots especially when you're short on time.

Couldn’t have been more disappointed. Brought tickets from the Union Station sales representative and asked if the Gold package included the Arlington and Water tour see depicted on the brochure. He told my family that yes, the tour does in fact include those tours as well.
