Where would you take an out-of-town visitor and why? "When visiting the Lincoln Memorial I delight in leading my guests through the colonnade to the side facing the river. There we marvel at the view of Memorial Bridge symbolically and literally linking North to South, look up at Arlington House standing majestically above the Cemetery, and contrast the skyscrapers of Rosslyn with the height-limited streetscapes of DC. As we stroll to the front of the building, folks are awed by the magnificence of the National Mall view framed by the Lincoln pillars. It thrills me every time! The Lincoln Memorial perfectly combines the familiar with the unexpected!"
"Christina was superb. Highly recommend not only this tour, but ANY tour led by Christina. Informative, engaging, entertaining, interesting...everything one would desire of a guide." - Goldstar reviewer
