Sam is an awesome tour guide; knowledgeable in content, patient/accommodating, and so much fun! We can tell his work is his passion. While reflecting on our vacation, all of us agreed that our monument tour through Trip Hacks DC was the highlight of our time in DC.
Our Monuments Twilight Tour with Sam was AWESOME!!! He was very knowledgeable and genuinely enjoys sharing the history of DC. We learned so much, it was great to gain insight on the monuments that you wouldn’t otherwise know by just walking them on your own. I have already recommended this tour to several friends.
Just got back from DC and Rob with Trip Hacks was by far the highlight of our trip! We booked the Monuments by Twilight tour at the beginning of our trip and was overwhelmed by Rob's knowledge of the monuments and more. Trip Hacks DC is money well spent. Thank you Rob for accommodating my family (baby and all) and not only giving us historical information but also restaurant, shuttle and general DC information.
I wasn't sure about spending that money for a walking tour, but I am so glad that we did! Having Rob visit the monuments with us and telling us about the details was worth every penny! My favorite site was the Korean War monument, and Rob is so knowledgeable and friendly.
A month later, and we're still talking about Rob's tour being the highlight of our trip (and we had a super fun trip!)... Rob's tour was the most delightful blend of information (so we knew what we were looking at), humor, and reverence for the moments in history depicted. Rob is one of those rare individuals you like right away, and his enthusiasm is contagious.
Trip Hacks DC was founded in 2017 by Rob, a veteran tour guide in the Nation's Capital.
