We had Charles as a driver and Henry K as our tour guide. Very passionate and extremely informative. You need a guide to give you the rest of the story. They really make it come alive!

One of 3 companies offering a similar service. DC has a narrator who was knowledgeable, helpful and humorous. We bought the ticket on line through Groupon at about a third off, worth checking out.
