Excellent tours to both Gettysburg and Arlington/Mt. Vernon.Jay did an excellent job of pointing out local landmarks, places of historic interest, and keeping the passengers engaged.

We were moved by the Marine Memorial at Iwo Jima because my father fought with the Marines depicted in the famous flag raising on Mt Suribachi so Bob gave us a few extra minutes to get photos. He was a caring and kind man and it was demonstrated in his treatment of the tour guests. We had an unforgettable experience.
