We had a fabulous tour of the National Gallery with our docent Abram. He took us on a wonderful trip through the gallery from the earliest works right through to the most recent explaining the different artistic styles as we went. Fantastic!

On a freezing January morning, Jacqueline kept my 16 year old son and myself engaged and interested for a three hour walk in Washington. We even got a fantastic tip for a place to eat lunch. Really recommend the tours.
