Over 98% of our guests who have reviewed A History of Terror on TripAdvisor have rated it as ‘Excellent’, with many saying it was the highlight of their whole trip.  Here’s a few examples of what they say.  We love our guests!

“The idea of a walking tour is never one that has particularly appealed to me. I’ve always found them to contain generic, scripted content delivered by joyless and uninformed individuals. Fortunately, after spending an afternoon with Paul, I can say that this couldn’t be further from the truth when it comes to DC Tours.”
