Our guide was very knowledgeable about the neighborhood and it's history, architecture and people. The highlight of the tour was the presentation at the African American Civil War Museum. We have been recommending this tour to all our friends.

Little hard to hear the tour guide due to traffic, etc. - may want to make provisions for that.

What a wonderful, interesting and informative way to spend a Saturday morning. Of course the ideal weather was a big help.

I think this was my favorite walking tour thus far. The route wasn't that long, but the history of the area was brought to life by both the tour guide and the curator? of the African-American Civil War Museum to which we were guided. I loved it!!

Sarah was a terrific guide and the tour was quite interesting. I learned more than I knew previously about this neighborhood. I will definitely recommend this tour to others.

My mom and I had a great time on the tour. The African American Civil War Museum curator is a very knowledgable historian and I am glad he was able to share knowledge on his passion with us. It was a good tour and we ended it with half smokes from...continued

Excellent tour of the U Street Corridor. The tour guide was personable and knowledgeable about the African American history of that area. I would like an expanded tour or another tour focusing on the history of the residences of that area.

It was an added bonus to visit DC and discover there is much more than the well known monuments, namely my African American culture's rich history in our nation's capital.
