We booked a tour for up to 6, but we were the only takers on a Monday morning, so it became a delightful private tour. Our guide is a PhD in art history, which is not in usual for the National Gallery. Her knowledge, visual aids, and easy manner made it easy to understand and enjoy. The collection in the west building aren't my favorite paintings, but Sarah made it a delightful, educational experience. The modern wing is superb, and I'd come back for a context tour of that wing!

Brought the history of the Mall and the founding of this nation to life in a way I had never before experienced. Guide was tops.

We had a fabulous tour of the National Gallery with our docent Abram. He took us on a wonderful trip through the gallery from the earliest works right through to the most recent explaining the different artistic styles as we went. Fantastic!

An excellent experience - despite the freezing weather. Sue was able to add a huge amount of value and our teenage children, who are fascinated by American politics, loved it too.

On a freezing January morning, Jacqueline kept my 16 year old son and myself engaged and interested for a three hour walk in Washington. We even got a fantastic tip for a place to eat lunch. Really recommend the tours.
