    Attended Awesome Con. Nice large facility and easily accessible by metro, which made attending quite convenient.

    This event is top no0tch every year. We expect no less from the Library of Congress. However, success breeds popularity and even though it is in the convention center it is too crowded to be able to see the speakers you want and move around the building. It is a 5 star event but when you get blocked from doing what you would like to do, well, then it is less than 5 star. There should be overflow rooms for people to see the most popular speakers. This year the RBG talk was very full and there were likely many hundreds of people shut out from this very popular speaker. if there was a ball room where we could see a screen, it wouldn't be as nice as live but better than missing it. The volunteer staff was wonderful and extremely helpful. I will go back next year and hope for the best.

    This year I wanted to do a little something different for a team-building event. Instead of a dinner and night out in DC, we opted for a custom, private tour with DC Insider Tours. We had a really nice, upscale party bus and were able to bring our own snacks and drinks. Bo & Erica customized a tour based on what we wanted to see and talked about the sites in between. We all learned so much and had the most amazing time. Seeing the monuments at night was really cool and we all learned a lot! Bo had so many fun and interesting stories to tell. His passion for DC's history is unparalleled!

    If you're looking to book your next team building or corporate event in DC, look no further than DC Insider Tours!

    The Robert A Taft memorial consists of a statue of Robert A Taft which is in front of a huge carillon in a small park. It is nothing special.

    Definitely give this bar a 5/5. Staff was welcoming and friendly. The infused tea cocktail was wonderful. The manager introduced himself (Doug) and made sure we were comfortable.

    My girlfriend and I had our first float session today. We each had separate pods. I can’t say enough about the spa and the people. The experience was phenomenal. So relaxing. I look forward to my next visit. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Upper Massachusetts Avenue (16 Street up) is known as Embassy Row with the cluster of Foreign Embassies and many grand old buildings. However, lower Massachusetts Avenue are known for old neighborhood and iconic historic churches. The Church of the Ascension and Saint Agnes. According to the history, the building of the church was completed in 1844. The Gothic Revival design adds nice look of the many different churches especially from 14th Street NW to 9th Street NW near Chinatown.

    Took our grandson on opening day which was a surprise adventure for him. My husband and I were disappointed to see there are less and less cars featured every year. The price of $30 for the bounce was ridicules!!! Do you think parents are going to pay that amount for their kids? It use to be a good time but not anymore. I don’t know if we will be going next year.

    Fantastic. Both Captain Denny and Captain Pete were terrific. We spent an hour and a half on the water. We saw the monuments by night and watched planes land at Reagan National airport from the water. Captain Pete has a wealth of knowledge. He was friendly, informative and engaging. Even my teenager enjoyed it! More importantly, these guys have Navy experience. You're in good hands on the water. Even before out trip, Captain Denny gave me some good advice on visiting DC. So glad we spent time with Embark DC.

    What a delightful experience!!! Very professional and his intent was spot on.
    Highly recommend him. If you are in need of a therapist that will release tension. Manipulate your muscles to function properly then this is the person need to see.

    I like to explore cities at my own pace, without being herded around, so this audio tour was perfect for me. I downloaded the (free) TripScout app and then bought the DC tour. It covered the highlights plus some hidden gems. I needed to find a cafe to meet up with some friends and it directed me to La Colombe, which was awesome and also allowed me to discover the DC Alley Museum and see the great street art there.

    We took our third tour in Baltimore with Rent A Tour in August 2021. Another fantastic tour! I worked with Chris to book a private water taxi ride around the Inner Harbor with Chris as our tour guide. He is so knowledgeable, friendly and easy to work with. We look forward to booking a step-on tour with him soon!

    Myself & my family had the pleasure of taking a tour led by Brian McCauley ( Liberty Tours ) of Washington DC in July 2016 .
    Washington was my favourite stop within the US & the tour was made so much better as there isn't anything Brian doesn't know about Washington & the US in general . His passion for his country & its history is abundantly evident & draws you in , making it a tour you will never forget . We'll be back Brian & we will look you up next time we're in the US .
