If he stuck to history all would be well

Bobby knows his history, but his comments regarding subjects that should not be discussed including abortion are inappropriate and could be a law suit waiting to happen. I wish I had read the reviews before I booked at maybe we could have avoided being with Bobby!

I understand the our country is divided over politics, but as tour company who serves anyone, political opinions should be kept to themselves. I did not appreciate that our guide made a joke in front of our elementary age kids involving abortion even after expressing our disapproval before his punchline. We were there to learn/teach American history, but what we got was unsolicited opinions that we did not share.

Bobby was delightful. His knowledge of the history of the area was awesome. He knew just how much time to allow for each sight to get the best experience for the whole trip. His sense of humor made the trips wonderful experience.

We totally enjoyed this Washington, DC Express Sightseeing tour yesterday. Out tour guide promised the three E's Entertainment. Enjoyment and Enlightenment and he provided all three of those for me and my daughter. We were in town for a business trip and only had a few hours free time. This trip fit that time line perfectly. My family has never been disappointed in a Viator tour.
