Kurt was our private guide for the day and did a great job with both the food and the photo part of the tour. There were so many beautiful spots that we went to on this tour - the online description doesn't do this justice. Kurt provided us with some helpful, quick tips about taking better photos with our cellphone cameras. The food provided on this tour is delicious and plentiful - again, the online description doesn't really tell you how much value there is in this tour. We couldn't finish it all and came back to the hotel with lots of leftovers. Kurt was very kind to my partner who was not feeling well the day of our trip. Would definitely recommend this tour!

The Navy and Rangers were wonderful! Some of the people visiting were being disrespectful and the Ranger explained to them that it's a grave site. The Ranger was very nice about explaining. I wouldn't have been. This is a lot of walking but we'll worth it.

Ernie was friendly and informative about the subject. We had such a good tour because of his attentive and professional service. We would definitely recommend him and the company.

Trolley was well worth the time and money. Suggest hopping on the green or blue line as soon as you arrive to see where you want to go back to.

Was a lot of fun and learning . Our guide was awesome.
