We've used Context in other cities but never with our children. We booked the private family tour of the mall with Katie as a kickoff for our trip to DC, and she was absolutely fantastic! Our children are 9 & 11, and Katie kept them engaged and interested the entire time while gearing them up for the rest of our trip. We love Context and will continue to use and recommend them for years to come.

We love Context Travel for the other tours we have taken, but tonight was beyond our expectations. Great tour guide - totally prepared, enthusiastic, knowledgable well beyond the direct subject, which was the Mall. We learned SO much. Really great value. Thank you JB, and Context!

Gov Works, a Politics Primer with Tom Diemer was great (despite the hot weather and long walk up Pennsylvania Avenue). My wife and I use Context Travel wherever/whenever we can. Always worth it. This was an especially interesting tour, as we had my brother-in-law from the UK with us. On the 4th we went to the incredible fireworks on the Mall (which was easy if you use public transportation).

Our tour last night with Context Tours was one of the best tours I have ever been on. We have used Context Tours in Paris, Barcelona and now Washington, DC - they never disappoint. I cannot say enough good things about them. We had friends and family visiting and it was this tour was the highlight of their trip. Our tour guide was Jackie, she was so knowledgeable and friendly, she gave us a fantastic, private tour. I highly recommend their private group tours. Thank you Context Tours!

We took the Context Walking Tour of the Mall with our 14-year old son and Katie was our tour guide. This was our first activity after arriving in DC and it was an interesting and fun introduction to the city. Katie is articulate and very knowledgable and she provided historical context as she showed us the major sites on the Mall. The group included six people so it was intimate and flexible. Some on our tour expressed a particular interest in seeing the Martin Luther King monument so Katie adjusted our route in order to include it. The pace was perfect and she was absolutely delightful. The Mall Tour by Context Washington Tours was an excellent way to begin our visit to Washington and it turned out to be a highlight of the trip. We recommend it highly.
