This is a really wonderful experience. The tour guide playing Det McDervitt really knew his history and he really got into his character. We all remarked how much we learned about the conspiracy as well as buildings in DC. This tour should be...continued

This was a fun event and I recommend it. I live here, but still learned a lot. The professional guide must have been a professional actor. We really enjoyed his use of different voices for different characters as we moved from scene to scene. ...continued

The tour is...continued

I was hosting two young relatives from out-of-town, and all three of us loved this unique approach to a historical walking tour. Using a first-person "eyewitness" approach to history, the tour came alive. The guide/performer was charming, played...continued

"you'll see the box seats where President Lincoln and his wife settled in for a night of drama that soon turned very personal". - This is not true. You don't tour Ford's theater at all. It is all an outside walking tour. Was disappointed because...continued

Our tour guide was awesome! He was great about getting into character and making the tour interactive. I REALLY wish we could have gone inside the theater. I was disappointed that we couldn't.

We enjoyed this tour on a delightful fall evening! The tour guide was personable, well-informed and easy to hear. (It was great that he had a mike since there was lots of background noise....) The tour was fast- paced and was just long enough. It...continued
