Terry was our guide. He was very knowledgeable. It was very enjoyable to have someone as intimately familiar with the museum as he was. Also able to steer us to exhibits before the crowds got there and generally made our experience much more enjoyable! Would definitely recommend this!

The absolute best way to see this Museum. Our guide here was Doug and he was outstanding. His knowledge was vast and he was able to direct us through in a timely manner. IF you have limit time in the city and want to visit this Museum I highly recommend this tour and Doug as a guide.

This tour was a highlight for me, as I have always wanted to visit the Smithsonian.
Our tour guild was very very good, she seamed to know everything about everything.
I could have spent much much more time at the Smithsonian, but alas we needed to move on
I was able to see up close the model of the USS Enterprise used in the original Star Trek series...very cool
