Karen Galasso – Boston, Massachusetts – January 21-22, 2020
Want the best tour experience of your life? Alan and Concierge Tours is the only place to go!
I had a lovely 3 nights in Washington and my private tour guide, Alan from Concierge Tours…AMAZING GUIDE!!…wore me out visiting so many wonderful sights! If you are ever considering a tour of Washington, DC…do not do the tour bus, group tour thing…you have to go with Alan! He is genius and knows so much you will walk away wondering how you ever made it through school with so little knowledge! In addition, he treated me like there was all the time in the world to get this done. I have an off again/on again issue with my hip and though on Tuesday it was sore (mostly because of the unusual cold) Alan worked at my pace and let me rest when needed. I walked 4 miles that day and Alan walked even more…going to get the car so I could rest. We went back out Wednesday and saw as much as I could before I had to surrender. Again, Alan went to get the car to come back and pick me up. He is a kind & considerate tour guide and because you are working with an individual who cares about you as well as history, your happiness and satisfaction are important to him…at least that is the impression I was left with after spending time with him. He is a self-proclaimed history geek (I prefer history buff) who knows so much and will show you things the other guides just glaze over. When at the Capital, their guides asked Alan questions!
Oh…and let’s not forget how funny he is! He has a ton of jokes…he thinks they are all funny so just humor him and laugh…he will so appreciate it! Right, Alan!?
A memory, an experience that will last me a lifetime! I wish I had photos to share but my phone/camera is acting up!! See Concierge Tours page on Facebook for lots and lots of photos!!!
The Little Family – Waco, Texas – January 17 & 20, 2020
Our tour experience with Alan Feldman on our trip to Washington DC was so much more than anyone could expect in fact, Alan exceeded our expectations. American History is Alan’s love and it shows. From the week before we arrived, Alan called us to find what we wanted to see in Washington, to the end of the second day when had to say goodbye, our tour was a comfortable 5-star joy. Alan’s knowledge of the area with constant facts and trivia has to be unrivaled. We ended our two days with Alan becoming a true friend. We shared our life with him and his with us. We feel like we know his family! This was so much more than a tour, it was an everlasting memory. We give Alan and Concierge Tours our highest recommendation! Thanks Alan, and we hope to see you again soon!
Schedan Family – Denver, CO – January 2, 2020
WOW…. If you’re looking to tour DC, Alan with Concierge Tours is your guy!!! I scheduled a private tour and received a phone call from Alan in advance to discuss our plans. Alan also made some valuable suggestions that created a perfect experience for a mother in an unfamiliar environment with her two teenage boys. Alan’s style is unique, not only a nerd who’s extremely knowledgeable about history, he’s fun, very outgoing, flexible and amazing with teenage boys. Alan’s local knowledge about the monuments, the Smithsonian museums, the eateries and the rules of the general areas made our trip beyond what we expected. Alan even quizzed us and rewarded the boys with gifts for correct answers. Since DC has an enormous amount of interesting territory to visit, if possible, you must schedule more than one day to tour with Alan. Thank you Alan – Your tour was definitely the highlight of our trip!!!
Mulick Family – Las Vegas, NV December 27-29, 2019
For a more in-depth personalized tour of Washington DC, look no further than Alan Feldman at Concierge Tours. It’s overwhelming how much there is to see, but Alan points out the interesting gems at each place making it more meaningful than the average visit. Alan has an easy going manner which brings fun and education together. As well, his personal tour takes the stress of driving, parking and navigating the crowds in the DC area; money well spent!
Thank you, Connie M.
Arthur Family – Michigan – December 9, 2019
On Monday December 9 we took a full day tour guided by Alan. Conditions were not great as two of our group were in wheelchairs and it was pouring rain. But with Alan’s help we had a great day. He managed to plan the day to minimize the walking and with all of his stories and information we hardly noticed the rain. So glad we included this tour in our vacation. We highly recommend Alan.
Cannington Family – Waycross, GA – DC July 27, 2019 – NYC November 23-24, 2019
Your Tour – Your Way
Traveled to DC with 2 friends and their families. We had 11 people aged 8 to 70. I scheduled a full day private tour with Concierge Tours and, much to my surprise, made everyone happy. Alan was attentive to our wishes and put together a day full of adventure. He handled everything from tickets to dinner reservations. He paced the tour based on what we wanted and we walked away with SO MUCH KNOWLEDGE of our nation’s capital. Alan made learning fun for the kids and educational for the adults. We had such a GREAT tour that I used him again when we traveled to NYC in November 2019. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Alan Feldman with Concierge Tours.
The Schurr Family – Orlando, FL December 3, 2019
What a great tour with Alan! A must do if you want to see Washington DC at your pace with a lot of information and personalization to abilities of all those traveling in your party. We were able to customize our tour and knock off all the major must sees! We found out tons of info about DC in such a fun and informative way! Alan was such a pleasant guide and funny! Felt like we were on a tour with an old friend! Alan also took pictures for us which is great as it finally looks like I’m on vacation with my husband and not by myself!
The Hurley Family – Green Bay, Wisconsin – November 8, 2019
What a fantastic way to experience the many sites of Washington DC. My husband and I collaborated with our tour guide Alan Feldman on a customized itinerary for a full day tour. Alan added so much color with his knowledge and stories to the sites we visited. He engaged our 15 and 13-year-old sons with local trivia. We highly recommend this tour for anyone that wants to experience Washington DC in a personal and historic fashion.
Parrett Family – Upper Peninsula, Michigan October 17-18, 2019
Words can’t adequately describe our DC tours spent with Alan. Having “Our Tour, Our Way” meant so much for our family. We learned so much from Alan and his abounding history knowledge and many stories of all the sites we visited. This is truly the way to experience DC. Alan’s “pop quizzes” were a big hit and I must say we did pretty well as everyone truly paid attention to the way Alan presented the information. The pace of the tour and his patience with our group really sets our experience apart from any other tours we’ve been on. The tour was definitely a five-star experience and I would recommend Alan to any and all to book with Concierge Tours!
Caudill/Green Family – Indianapolis, Indiana October 10-12, 2019
Caudill Family of 5 – Alan gets 10 stars out of 5
I have been on many tours in many places and can honestly say Alan is the best tour guide you could ask for. Alan was always accommodating in every way possible going above and beyond (even prepping medicine for my mom’s bad ankles). A wealth of information – the stories he has about different sites are unbelievable and amazing. Not just quick fun facts, but actual in depth stories that are educational and you won’t forget! He keeps you honest with fun pop quizzes too haha. He is as genuine as he is intelligent and just a tremendous human being. I am honored to have had him as a guide. He was funny, informative, and able to maintain patience with a group who is naturally unorganized and hard of hearing. Our family is really good at not communicating and wandering off and Alan was able to herd cats and keep everyone on the same page! I cannot say enough to do him and his tour justice. An extremely interesting and charismatic person who can tell you the ins and outs of DC. Thank you again, Alan, for everything!
Tonie and Tina Lovin – Tampa, Florida September 27-28, 2019
We spent 2 full days with Alan, wish we had more time. What a fantastic tour guide, full of knowledge, interesting trivia and just a fun person to have to show you around DC and it’s surroundings- 5 star!
Koppelman & Feifer Families Monroe, New Jersey – September 14-15, 2019
Wanted to let you know that all of us (Jay & Susan & Herb & Betty….hmmm…. sounds like a movie title) truly enjoyed the DC touring experience. Even though each of us had “spent time” in DC before, your personalized tour was by far the best of our collective experiences. Not only did your touring flexibility tailor the “physical walk-around” requirements to our capabilities (i.e. group average age: 75 years young), your knowledge base of history, people, places and events kept us intellectually captivated, and motivated us to “keep on, moving on”. We have been “talking up” Concierge Tours and Alan Feldman as DC gurus, to friends in our community. Chapter 1 has ended, but there are more pages to turn. Until we meet again…. Regards, Jay Koppelman
The Moretti Family California – August 15, 2019
Our tour guide was Alan. He was full of energy and full of more information than we could process! He really took the time to educate us on a lot of information we either didn’t know, or had forgotten about since our school days! It was a day jam-packed with American history, and with a lot of walking, and luckily we had some comfy shoes on! Alan shared back stories, on the Lincoln family and other historical American families, and he really gave us the VIP treatment! On this particular tour, we definitely got our money’s worth, and then some! Thank you Alan, you were awesome.
John Willin and Guests from Australia – July 25, 2019
Just wanted to drop you a line about last week’s tour you gave to me, my wife and our friends from Australia. You arrived on time and were extremely knowledgeable on all aspects of the various sites we saw on the tour. Our visit to Arlington Cemetery was wonderful, especially the Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Solders and the specific grave memorials that you pointed out during our time at Arlington. You are a walking encyclopedia on numerous sites throughout Washington, as evidenced during our visits to the White House, Ford’s Theater, Capital Building, and various monuments. We enjoyed the entire day we spent with you and if we decide to book another tour, it will certainly be with you., via Concierge Tours.
Lucille “Lu” Minervini – Cincinnati, OH July 21, 2019
Alan, I want to thank you again for the fabulous DC tour today. Despite the heat you made it very interesting and a lot of fun! I loved your “side stories “and learned a lot. I will recommend you to friends in Cincinnati.
The Randall Family – Kansas City, Kansas June 22, 2019
Thank you, Alan, for the wonderful, interesting tour, we loved all the extra information you shared with us!! Such a fun, busy day!! I would certainly recommend Alan if you’re in need of a tour guide. We plan on returning to Washington, DC when we have more time and will be calling Alan and Concierge Tours for our next tour! Alan made everything so easy for us. Thanks again!
Erika Johnson– Kalispell, Montana – May 25 – 28, 2019
Concierge Tours provided our group white glove service in blue jeans style. Alan is part encyclopedia, part comedian, which is precisely what you need in a DC tour guide. For every monument, memorial, or historical place, Alan had an interesting and novel story or historical fact that you may not have read in your high school history books. He deftly kept us entertained by punctuating his talks with humor, making the content and tour that much more memorable. Alan managed 50 high school students on his three-day tour and I am amazed how much they actually listened and learned. I appreciated Alan’s ability to “read” our group’s needs and tailor the itinerary and rest times accordingly. My son with special needs was in the group and Alan went above and beyond to accommodate his needs. By the end of our tour, we called Alan our friend. I would recommend Alan and Concierge Tours to anyone. Enjoy your tour!
Pierson Family – Scottsdale, AZ – May 31, 2019
My family and I had limited time to explore Washington DC, so we decided to book Concierge Tours/Alan for an all-day tour, and I’m so happy we decided to do so. Alan was the perfect tour guide! He was extremely knowledgeable, polite, accommodating and hilarious. We spent nearly 10 hours with Alan touring the US Capitol, Arlington National Cemetery, Mount Vernon and the various monuments and memorials in the National Mall. It was the BEST guided tour I’ve ever been on, and I would highly recommend booking Concierge Tours/Alan if you want to maximize your Washington DC experience!
Nerdinsky Family – Miami, Florida – May 23, 2019
To anyone considering Concierge Tours, it’s a must! Our family of four had an amazing time with Alan. He taught us a tremendous deal of information about Washington, DC (and US history in general) and kept everyone engaged and curious for more. We were worried about the kids being interested, especially for so many hours, but Alan made everything so accessible and fascinating, even incorporated “quizzes” for the kids. The tour exceeded all our expectations and was an amazing day. We are beyond grateful and would recommend Alan and Concierge Tours to everyone!
Floyd Family – Ontario, Canada – May 3, 2019
We are a family of four (Mom, Dad, and 2 girls 15, 17) from Ontario Canada and found Concierge Tours online. After reading a few reviews, we decided to reach out to Alan to see if we could set something up. Alan was able to create a tour that would take us to some key spots and still allow us to be back at our hotel by mid-afternoon. We wanted to cram in as much as we could from the time we arrived at 8am. Alan picked us up at the airport and the tour began. Alan is very organized and has a vast amount of knowledge of the sites we visited. Alan did a great job of educating us with facts and stories that transformed our tour into a truly memorable experience. Alan’s ability to adjust on the fly is really amazing. Like I mentioned, our plan was to cram a lot in (Alan has tremendous energy) and Alan was up to the challenge. When one of the kids wasn’t feeling well and became very tired on the tour, Alan quickly made some suggestions to rectify the problem and adjust the tour to accommodate the situation. It really saved the day! We enjoyed the tour and learning about the Washington, DC area, especially Arlington National Cemetery . We would recommend Alan without hesitation. Thanks Alan!
Gregory Family – Oklahoma City, Oklahoma – May 6-7, 2019
We just spent two fantastic days touring Washington, D.C., and the surrounding area with Alan Feldman/Concierge Tours, LLC. Alan filled our two days with a great variety of museums, monuments and historical sites and did so with endless energy, a vast amount of knowledge and a tremendous sense of humor. We found Alan to be engaging from the get-go, extremely personable and he made our two days fun and enjoyable. He has the ability to cater to all ages and he made a concerted effort to ensure our two grandchildren, ages 8 and 10, had a good time wherever we toured. Alan was fantastic to work with in planning the itinerary for each day of our tour. He demonstrated a “can do” attitude and made sure to incorporate any sites that we wanted to visit or see. Largely as a result of Alan’s involvement, we had a fabulous experience during our DC visit. We give Alan/Concierge Tours, LLC 5-Stars and we highly recommend him!! Thank you, Alan, we hope to see you again!

Henson Family – Perth, Western Australia – April 24, 2019
We arranged a tour of the sites of Washington with Alan. He was so accommodating. His knowledge and passion for the history of America shines through. He has an amazing sense of humour and tailors the tour to suit all participants. If you come to DC do yourself a favour and book a tour with Alan. You will learn so many interesting facts and Alan has an incredible ability to entertain people of all ages. You will never feel rushed and he allows you to ask numerous questions. It was certainly the best money that we spent on our trip. Thank you again Alan for everything you are the best.

We had a full day tour with Alan in DC and really enjoyed it. Highly recommend the visit to Arlington, all the background stories really help you appreciate the magnificence of the place. Thank you Alan!

Reynolds/LaTour Family Salt Lake City, UT – April 1-5, 2019
We scheduled a tour with Alan (Concierge Tours DC) from Monday April 1- Friday April 5, 2019. We had 7 people in our group ranging from a 9 year old up to two 74 years olds. Alan picked us up directly from our Air BNB every morning, always right on time and in a comfortable car that fit us all. Alan made us a schedule and sent it to us prior to the trip, we loved that we knew what to expect everyday. Alan immediately got to know all of us and made seeing the sights and learning about history so fun! He brought spinner toys for the kids and had little quizzes after each sight that the kids would love to answer!! Alan knew a tremendous amount about history and had information and stories we had never heard prior to our trip. Alan was great about modifying things when we needed to for our youngest and also for the oldest in our group. I have been to D.C. before, but never saw and learned so much than I did on this tour with Alan. We felt like we didn’t miss anything and we had so much fun while doing it! Alan became part of the family and we were so grateful to have him be the one who worried about the plan, scheduling, tickets, and parking. He made our trip very enjoyable! I would highly recommend using Alan at Concierge Tours, he is the BEST!
If you are looking for someone that knows history and their way around DC and has a fun and engaging personality, then Alan Feldman is your man! My wife and I recently took our granddaughters ages 15 and 12 to DC for their spring break. At age 70 we were both apprehensive about time management and getting around the city to see all the sights. In steps Alan Feldman! The instant we landed at Reagan, Alan was there to pick us up and for the next three and one half days we experienced one of the most memorable and educational trips that we have ever had. To top it off, Alan was everything we could have asked for in a guide plus more, we adopted him as part of our family. Although the weather was cold and rainy, our spirits were never damped because Alan was filled with stories and anecdotes about every historical site, museum and monument we toured. We were amazed at how easily Alan navigated his way around DC and especially on our walking tour through Arlington national cemetery to take in the changing of the guard at the tomb of the unknown soldier during a driving rain storm. Our granddaughters thoroughly loved being challenged to regurgitate the information that Alan was feeding them. As grandparents, there was no pressure on us to make sure the girls had a great time, as Alan saw to that. As a veteran, the memorials to the men and women who served our nation were the highlight of my trip. We all would go back to DC in a heart beat and the first person we would call would be Alan. He is a fine man and will make it his personal duty to make sure that your trip to DC will be everything you hoped for and more.

Thank you for everything Alan! We all had such a fabulous time with you. You really made the trip so prefect for the boys and my first time to Washington, DC. Thank you again!
The Khaimov Family – Long Island, NY 12/28/2018
Our family recently spent a couple of days in DC. We booked this trip with an idea of introducing our kids (aged 14 and 8) to the rich and fascinating American history through visiting the capital. Alan Feldman was our tour guide on the first day of the trip. Frankly, we were concerned whether the kids could handle the day long tour. Alan captured their attention immediately with humorous little historic facts and anecdotes. He kept them engaged the whole time. This DC tour with Alan was an educational and fun experience for the whole family. Alan is a very knowledgeable guide with a treasure trove of incredibly interesting stories about the sites and the people in history. Thank you, Alan! We had a great time!
My husband and I recently visited Washington, DC with our three grandchildren (ages 12, 9 and 9). We spent our first day in DC with Alan Feldman of Concierge Tours. The decision to start our trip with a tour by Alan proved to be a very enlightening beginning to a fascinating adventure.
Alan guided us through Arlington National Cemetery as well as through many of the monuments and memorials. Along the way to each of these stops, he provided us with many interesting facts and funny tidbits about other buildings, etc. in DC.
We were in awe of Alan’s wide range of knowledge about so many DC current attractions and the history that accompanies each one. In addition, Alan has a lot of humorous facts at his finger tips that he throws out along the way to keep the kids amused and interested. He also has a knack for following up with the kids about some of these facts and oddities that he provided previously without making them feel like they are on the spot. They loved the questions. Alan, your knowledge is incredible, and your manner with kids is just perfect.
Because of our first “long” day spent touring with Alan, all three kids were raring to go for the next three days. They were so excited to continue the learning journey and spout out all of the knowledge that they had gained from him. In fact, the excitement continues a week later.
We highly recommend Alan Feldman and Concierge Tours to anyone visiting the DC/VA area, and we look forward to having another adventurous tour with him in the future.

Joanne Mileo Tampa, FL 11/5/2018 Joanne Mileo reviewed Concierge Tours — 5 star We toured Washington DC with Alan this past Monday. In spite of a very rainy first half of the day, Alan made our day wonderful, enjoyable and he is so knowledgeable. My 13 year old niece was with us and he went out of his way to make it fun and educational for her. Thank you so much for some great memories Alan. Five Stars!
Richard and Hank from Dallas, Texas – 8/31/2018
The Best Tour Guide in DC, hands down! A true gentlemen, Alan Feldman brings history to life. What makes Alan the best? First, Alan truly loves what he does. My son and I came away with a much deeper appreciation for our country and its history. Second, Alan loves people. Alan’s love of people comes through in everything he does. Third, Alan loves America and its rich history. Whether you have a few hours or a few days, Alan will customize whatever time you have and make it an unforgettable experience.

Kathy from San Gabriel, California –
How lucky was this California gal to find the perfect tour guide in Alan Feldman of Concierge Tours! I was attending a conference in nearby Virginia and really wanted to visit Washington D.C. since I had never been there and didn’t know when I’d return. Alan laid out a tour plan to give the most for my tour fee. He picked me up at the hotel and ran my legs off for four hours! I learned so much as we moved from place to place…from relatively well-known facts to minute details such as the meaning of items placed on the graves at Arlington. I can guarantee you will have a wonderful experience if you choose Concierge Tours.
·Alan was our guide for an incredible, fun and educational tour of Wash DC! He is a fantastic guide who truly loves his job. I’m not sure he would call it a job though, he has too much fun! So glad we got to meet you and count you as an honorary cousin for two wonderful (if rainy!) days.
Alan was an awesome tour guide. Our kids on the bus learned so much and had fun doing it, he was very understanding and kind to answer all questions. He went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time in Washington DC. Thanks so much Alan!!
Erika Gardner San Diego 4/1/2018
Alan led myself and my family on an amazing tour of the DC area. It was everyone’s first time and he could not have been more accommodating. From picking us up at the airport and making breakfast reservations to sharing all of his knowledge of the vast history of this city. Alan went above and beyond for my family and we could not be happier with our first day and first trip to Washington, DC. Thank you Alan and Concierge Tours for making our trip unforgettable.
