Washington DC Monuments

I highly recommend Private Tours of Washington. We emailed a list of sights that we wanted to see and they gave us an itinerary that we agreed on. We met Larry our tour guide and our driver, hopped in the Black Suburban and we were treated like celebrities the rest of the day. Larry was extremely knowledgeable about Washington DC history, sights, and presidents. I think he could be a History professor. When we arrived at STOP locations Larry joined us while the driver circled and kept the AC running. Larry accompanied us to the sights and took pictures of our family, it was like having a professional photographer on vacation with us.

photo 2 (7)We were exhausted by the end of the day! It was 95 degrees outside and 98% humidity! There is no way we could have seen all of these sights on our own! We all learned so much from Larry. It was a history lesson and a tour all in one.

I gave the boys each an old digital camera and told them it was a contest to see who could take the best pictures. It took me almost an hour to delete ears, noses, and bad selfies but they actually got some great shots! I was very impressed! This was the best day of sight seeing we have ever had!

Happy Touring!
