What other teachers say
Take your time to read some of the reviews we have received over the years. Read from our current and past teachers.
"Lorna is exactly what you want in a tour guide. I expected her to be knowledgeable about the historical sites of Washington DC. Where she excelled is how easily she edited schedules on a dime if things such as inclement weather or unexpected closings occur. Great personality, kind...definitely felt like family by the end of the trip."
