Christie Family Group – Amarillo, Texas – May 23, 2023

 Personal Concierge

Our personal tour guide, Alan, did an amazing job of sharing his history and knowledge of the Washington DC area with our group. He was very enthusiastic and accommodating. We truly enjoyed our day and look forward to our next opportunity to meet with him. We will be referring him to others!  Thanks again, Alan, for an awesome day!  Please come to Texas for a visit and allow us to share some of our hospitality with you and your family.

Romero Family – Mexico City, Mexico – May 7, 2023

Worth it

Great tour to Mount Vernon, we had lots of fun and our guide was great. Alan was very nice
and very knowledgeable.

Williams Family – Monticello, Indiana – April 25-27, 2023

A second wonderful adventure in DC with Alan Feldman of DC Concierge Tours! As so many places were closed during our 2021 visit, we just had to hire Alan as our guide for our return visit. During our 3 day adventure we visited the Capitol, the Library of Congress, the Washington Monument, Arlington Cemetery, Jefferson’s Monticello, the National Archives, Georgetown, and Martin’s Tavern, where we sat in the booth where JFK proposed to Jackie. It was especially moving to see the original Declaration and Constitution, which are fading with age.  Alan also kindly took us back to Arlington to visit the grave of a dear, departed friend, an Army veteran buried there.

Alan’s deep love of history is very evident in his breadth and depth of knowledge of the people and places that influenced the beginning of our country and continue to influence them to this day. A gracious and entertaining host, Alan tells “stories” rather than lectures, so you are engaged the entire tour. He also knows the best places to lunch. Rather than a cookie cutter tour, Alan customizes so you see what you want to see. With Alan, there are no worries about transportation, parking, where to eat, and he gets tickets to most venues. Sadly, we could not visit the White House, as you must contact your Congressman or Senator for tickets, which go quickly. As Senior Citizens, we appreciate Alan’s adjusting the tour to our needs.

We highly recommend DC Concierge Tours. We may adopt him!

Lister Family – Nashville, Tennessee – April 23, 2023

Alan was wonderful! We had a great trip to DC but the day we spent with Alan was by far our favorite. He made everything completely stress free for us so we could just enjoy and take it all in.  Even during times where we were waiting to go into Ford’s Theater, walking between monuments, or walking around Arlington Cemetery, he excitedly chatted with us the entire time telling us the backstories and history of all that was around us.  We could tell he genuinely loves the history of DC and was just as enthusiastic talking to us about all the stories as if it was his first time sharing (even though I know he does this all the time!). We hung on his every word all day!

We definitely missed him the next couple of days exploring on our own. We plan to call him the next time we are in town and have him show us more historic places.  So blessed to have met Alan and spend a day in DC with him!

DuBois Family – Bangor, Maine – April 22, 2023

Our family recently had the pleasure of embarking on a Washington DC tour with Alan, an extraordinary tour guide who truly made our experience unforgettable. From the moment we met Alan, his passion for the area and its history shone through, captivating us all.

He went above and beyond by providing comfortable transportation to and from our hotel, ensuring that our journey through the city was seamless. His engaging demeanor and vast knowledge of DC’s history kept even our kids off their phones – a feat we never thought possible!

Our day was filled with walking tours of iconic landmarks, including the WWII Memorial, Vietnam, memorial, Washington monument, Lincoln Memorial, and Arlington Cemetery (changing of the guard at the tomb of the unknown). We also enjoyed a scenic drive through Capitol Hill, where Alan regaled us with stories about the area’s rich history. Each site visit was not only visually stunning but also deeply informative, as Alan expertly guided us through the historical context and significance of each landmark.  He also served as photographer by taking group photos of everyone and sending them to me immediately, which was a great unexpected benefit.

The tour was further enhanced by the fun trivia challenges incorporated throughout the day, sparking friendly competition and laughter among our family members. It was evident that Alan genuinely loves what he does, and his enthusiasm was contagious.

We wholeheartedly believe that our experience was worth every penny! For anyone visiting Washington DC or even New York (as Alan also leads tours there) on a time crunch, Alan is undoubtedly the tour guide to choose. His ability to create a personalized, engaging, and educational experience sets him apart from the rest.

In summary, our Washington DC adventure was a phenomenal 10/10 experience.  Alan’s engaging personality, extensive knowledge, and thoughtful planning made for a truly memorable day. We cannot recommend him highly enough for anyone seeking to explore the captivating history and landmarks of our nation’s capital or the bustling streets of New York. Thank you, Alan, for providing our family with a day we will always cherish!

With regards, The DuBois family

Simmons Family – Southern California – April 10-11, 2023

The Simmons want to thank you for making our trip to DC so amazing.  I was a bit nervous getting a tour guide for two days.  You never know if they’ll be knowledgeable, have a good personality and keep the kids engaged.  If I had known how great the tours were, I would have booked more days!

We loved that you talked to the kids and got them involved.  I’m sure you could tell the competition between William and Ella to get the right answer.  Your inside history made the trip fun, like the number of columns on Lincoln Memorial (36), the unnamed fountain outside the White House for Mr. Butt who died on the Titanic and the height of Washington Memorial (555’ 5” 1/8).  Thank you for taking all the pictures to capture our family.  I can see one of them being a Christmas Card.

But most of all thank you being so fun, friendly and kind.  Your tour really made it real for the kids.  They got to see and learn so much.  I know our travel agent will be referring her clients to you and I will be singing your praises to my family and friends.  Don’t be surprised if you see the Simmons again.

Thanks so very much!

Rohrer Family – Los Olivos, California – April 7, 2023

Historically Epic DC-area- Highlights Tour!

Alan went above and beyond to share the very best of the DC area with our family.  It was not, however, just a “highlights reel” tour.  Instead, Alan helped us revisit all the history lessons of our past and shared tons of interesting stories and anecdotes we had not heard before.  Alan’s genuine enthusiasm for exploring our nation’s rich history was truly inspiring.  He kept us on our toes with “pop quiz” questions, and we were happily exhausted and full of new information, fun stories, and happy memories by the end of the day!

Keen Family – Ashland, Kentucky – April 3-4, 2023

Alan Feldman is the best tour guide ever!

Alan Feldman was our fantastic tour guide! First of all, I just want to say, this guy is absolutely amazing!!! Alan is not your ordinary boring tour guide.  Alan is knowledgeable about all of the monuments and sites we visited and is a wonderful storyteller! I could listen to him talk all day! Alan has a genuinely caring personality and was very accommodating to everything we wanted to see and do.  I felt like I had known him all of my life! After touring the monuments, he would walk back to the car and drive back to pick us up so we didn’t have to walk so far. I loved the fact that we could tailor our tour to the sites we were interested in seeing. Alan made our tour exciting and memorable! Thank you, Alan!

Modd Family – Kenton, Ohio – March 26, 2023

Our tour with Alan was nothing short of spectacular. Alan is very knowledgeable, professional, engaging and patient. He kept in touch with me prior to the tour, helped me plan the day to pack in everything we wanted to see, and let me know when to expect him to arrive at the hotel. He was willing to go at our pace and answered all of our questions thoroughly. Alan was successful at keeping my six and ten year old kids entertained the entire day and he kept the history he taught so interesting that they are both still reciting the facts they learned. In the words of my kids, this is a five star tour, no doubt about it.  Thank you again for showing us a great time in DC!

Padgett Family – Charlotte, North Carolina – March 17, 2023

Fabulous Tour

Our family toured Arlington and D.C. historical sites with Alan at Concierge Tours last week. He was very personable, knowledgeable and flexible – customizing our tour to incorporate our special interests. (Ford’s Theater and Petersen House). Alan always put forth an extra effort to put us in the best possible position/location to enjoy each site. His expertise was especially valuable in touring Arlington. Alan knows the location and history behind many famous graves and planned our tour to include excellent viewing of The Changing of the Guard and wreath laying ceremonies. Everywhere we went Alan was able to point out surprising details not known to most. Our tour was worth every penny, and we can’t recommend Alan highly enough!

Benavides Family – Tucson, Arizona -March 13, 2023

Delightful Personalized Tour

We had a wonderful full day tour with Alan! He was great to work with to put together an itinerary to include what we wanted to see. Our family of 4 with two teen boys (15 & 18) spent the day seeing the National Archives, Arlington National Cemetery and Mount Vernon. Alan kept us entertained along the way with trivia questions and shared SO much knowledge! We all learned something new. Another perk was that Alan took photos for us as well.  I loved being able to have pictures with all of us in them. Very impressed with his knowledge and helpfulness along the way, he even offered advice for the rest of our trip. Highly recommend booking a tour with him!!

Johnson Family – Portland, Oregon – March 12, 2023

We took our granddaughter to Washington, DC for her 10th birthday.  I scheduled Alan the week before we arrived, and Alan contacted us before we left to coordinate with our expectations.  Alan met them and beyond.  Our granddaughter Eloise gave Alan a 12 on a scale of 1 – 10.  All throughout our tour, Alan kept her engaged all the time with questions and trivia.  We laughed and learned the entire day.  We will be coming back with our grandson next year and can’t wait to see what Alan has in store for us.

On a sidenote, this is the first time I’ve written a review for anything or anyone!

Eloise is still talking about how much fun she had with you.  Thank you so much for taking some of the pressure of the trip from Oma and Papa.  We will contact you this fall for our trip next year.

Cheers, Joan

House Family – Minneapolis, Minnesota – March 4, 2023

Our family of five, with children ages 22, 16, 11, LOVED our tour with Alan! It was the highlight of our DC trip. We spent a full day with Alan, and he took us to The Capitol, The National Archives, Arlington National Cemetery and the National Monuments. (Alan ended up spending extra time with us so we could get through our whole itinerary). I don’t think we would have had the steam to soldier through without Alan’s guidance, his stories and fun pop quizzes to keep us going. We were able to see so much in one day! I really appreciated the time he spent on the phone with me before our trip helping us come up with the right itinerary for our group. Also, what a treat for him to pick us up at our Airbnb and to be driven to the sites–not having to worry about traffic and parking, all while being entertained by his stories! Alan even took extra time to bring us back to our Airbnb in the middle of the day when we found out we had to move our rental car urgently. We would do this again in a heartbeat!

Thank you, Alan!!  –The House Family, Minneapolis, MN

Greenberg Family – Scottsdale, Arizona – February 21 and 24, 2023

Outstanding Tour

We are so impressed and thankful that we covered all of Washington DC with Alan. He was extremely knowledgeable and personable. He knew every little detail about the monuments, Arlington National Cemetery, The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Mount Vernon, Ford’s Theatre, National Archives, US Congress, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln etc.

We spent two full days with Alan and his company, Concierge Tours and we highly recommend Alan if you want to see the all that Washington has to offer.

Marsh Family – Bangor, Maine – February 20, 2023

Alan was truly amazing. Our family of four planned our first trip to Washington, D.C.  We wanted to avoid the hassle of finding everything ourselves, navigating traffic, parking and finding information on each place we wanted to go.  Alan saw to all of this flawlessly while at the same time providing detailed history and stories we never knew about each site and with a great sense of humor the whole day. Alan provided the best feature of all as he also served as our photographer for the day.  Each picture has my whole family in them!   Alan took pictures at each location and sent them to me in real time.  Having pictures without one of us missing was really nice!  I would 110% recommend Alan and Concierge Tours!!

Sharp Family – Huntsville, Alabama – January 2, 2023

New Years DC Trip

Alan is an excellent guide and person.
Booked tour at the last minute. Best part of our trip. Very knowledgeable and personable. You will not be disappointed.
Joe Sharp MD

McGuire-Woods and Colleagues – Virginia, North Carolina and Israel – December 14, 2022

Alan was great, highly knowledgeable, and witty.  His tour was interactive and provided us with some good laughs.  Highly recommended, as all of us locals in the group agreed that we would contact Alan again when we have another guest in town. (Make sure to ask about the Lincoln train story!)

Gunnarsdottir Family – Reykjavik, Iceland – October 22, 2022

This was long-awaited trip for our daughter Rebekka who just turned 17.  We had sent Alan a list of her “must do” items and he turned out to be a great guide, with quizzes, stories and fun facts on every corner. Alan knows the history well and managed to turn this day into something we will never forget. And he went the extra mile! It turned out that one of the “must do” items was unavailable (visit inside the US Capitol) – but two days AFTER our tour, our phone rings and Alan is on the other end of the line and asked if we could be at the Capitol in 20 minutes!! Alan managed to find one slot to go inside the Capitol because he really wanted us/her to have the full experience of Washington DC. This was something unexpected and ended the trip on a high! THANK YOU ALAN! We can recommend him 100%.

Thank you again Alan,
All the best from Iceland,
Kristjan, Sigurlaug & Rebekka.

Lynne MacKay-Thomas and Janine Hogan – London, England – October 4, 2022

Seldom has a few hours of sightseeing held such fun and rich content. Thanks to you Concierge Tours and Alan for going the extra mile to complete a perfect education of Washington, D.C.

Nicholson Family – Chattanooga, Tennessee – September 30, 2022

Last Minute Tour Leaves Lasting Memories

My husband and I booked a private tour of DC after our original vacation plans got cancelled. Alan was our tour guide, and oh buddy did he nail it! Not only did he know numerous facts about every location we visited, but he had anecdotes to go along with many locations. His question and answer format throughout the day was entertaining without being overwhelming. I truly wish we could have kept him with us for the entirety of our visit. Highly recommended. In addition to his knowledge, he was on time to pick us up, provided adequate restroom stops, gave us time to stop for lunch, and answered every question we had! This tour is worth every penny!

3-Peat Family – Ridgewood, New Jersey – June and November 2021 and September 2022

We have used Concierge Tours DC three times during recent visits to Washington. On each occasion, we have worked with Alan to create a bespoke itinerary that matched the needs of the family members joining. Ranging in age from children under 10 to some older folks, everyone has thoroughly enjoyed the experience regardless of their knowledge of the city, American history and the significance of each destination and experience.

Alan brings wonderful energy, experience and knowledge with him every day and is exceptionally focused on you getting the most out of your time together.

Thank you again for taking such good care of us this week.

Parker Family – Anderson, Indiana – September 19-20, 2022

My husband, daughter, her friend and I booked a full day and a half day tour with Alan. It was so wonderful being able to work with him to get to see exactly what we wanted to.  Alan called me twice to discuss our wishes before we finally decided on the tours and then he emailed a full itinerary for us to approve.  We enjoyed our time with him so much as he was fun and full of knowledge!  Alan takes care of all of the bookings, travel, and parking too.  I would highly recommend having Alan as your private guide to enjoy a most memorable visit to Washington DC!

The Ladies from Piedmont, Alabama – August 27, 2022

Alan was a wonderful tour guide! He was very knowledge on every place we visited. We spent over 3 hours in Arlington Cemetery and it was amazing! The history that he told us about the cemetery and people that are buried there was so interesting. Mount Vernon was a beautiful place and his knowledge that he shared with us was so much more than we would have gotten if we had went on the basic tour. We walked over 7 miles and learned so much about the monuments and the overall history of Washington, D.C..  Alan made the day so much fun with his knowledge and his pop quizzes! If we ever have the chance to be back in the area, Alan will most definitely be our go to man to show us more of the wonderful sights!

Cronje Family – Johannesburg, South Africa – August 29, 2022

Thank you again for your personalized tour yesterday. You were full of energy and information for the whole day and we covered a lot of ground, literally and figuratively! You made what could have been a confusing day of logistics seamless and easy and allowed us to make the most of our day in Washington DC by concentrating on the stories and making history come alive. Our kids learned a whole lot, as did we. The boys enjoyed The Capitol and gained a much better understanding of how the American government works and is structured.

We are grateful for your dedication, time and the experience! Thank you!

Carolyn, Frans, Willem and Billy Cronje

Cockfield Family – Charleston, South Carolina – August 5, 2022

I’ve been to a lot of places and on a lot of tours, and Alan is by far the best yet!! He is so full of information, kind, funny and just a pleasure to be around!  If you’re looking for a tour guide, look no further. We had an absolute blast and learned so much. My son calls Alan his new best friend.

Rios Family – Nashville, Tennessee – June 25, 2022

Alan was an absolute gem of a guide – from first contact via phone and text, throughout our wonderful day with him, and beyond. After picking the 5 of us (and our excessive luggage) up, Alan provided the best of DC, with his wisdom and wit and its wonders.

We had one day in DC and Alan made it the best ever!

Throughout our journey from Arlington National Cemetery to Mount Vernon and visiting almost all the highlights of DC, he kept our three pre-teen and teenage kids engaged and happy- as well as me and my husband! We absolutely could not have done it so effectively and efficiently without him- and we loved it! After dropping us off at our hotel, he reached out even the day after, offering to help us resolve an unrelated travel issue- So thoughtful on top of his knowledgeable and fun self. I would recommend Alan with the highest level of confidence. He made the most of our one day in DC!

Thank you, Alan!

Morris Family – Houston, Texas – July 9, 2022

We had a tour for myself, my sister and my 10-year-old grandson, Sam.  I brought Sam to Washington DC to learn all about American history.

We had a full day tour beginning with the Ford’s Theater.  Alan quizzed Sam throughout the tour to see what he already knew and to make sure that he was remembering all the new facts.  Alan gave us many interesting facts about Lincoln.

Our second stop was Arlington National Cemetery.  We got our steps in here.  We got to see the changing of the guard.  Sam was very impressed.  Alan taught us so much about the history of Arlington Cemetery.  It is a beautiful place.

We also went to the Lincoln Memorial, WWII Memorial and Vietnam Memorial.

Alan will design the tour for your needs and can also talk to multiple generations and make it interesting.  I highly recommend Alan.  Sam says that his favorites from 7 days in DC were Alan’s tour and the International Spy Museum.

Margie Morris

Shulman Brothers from Texas and Georgia – July 5, 2022

Must Do Tour Of DC

My favorite part of the tour was Alan’s knowledge of every site we visited. He was so knowledgeable in all the details of every site.  As a person who loves history, Alan killed It. I would highly recommend him to anyone visiting DC. Alan was even able to get us last minute Capitol Tour tickets. So awesome. Thanks Alan

Lewis Family – Algona, Iowa – June 30, 2022

My family from Iowa just recently came to DC over the Fourth of July and we booked a DC tour with Alan from Concierge Tours! Wow!! Was it exactly what we were hoping for! We highly recommend Alan for an amazing tour in the DC area. His knowledge of the area and so many interesting historical facts at all the attractions we visited, made each place come to life even more. We had a group of 6 ranging in age from 10 to 74yrs old and he has such an amazing way of keeping everyone engaged! Alan played fun games while quizzing us on our history knowledge that our kids enjoyed. I was looking for a tour that would accommodate everyone. Alan was perfect for that! He was patient when we needed to slow down and very flexible with our plans for the day. I love that he comes to you for pick up and drops you off wherever you want to go at the end of your tour. We will definitely be booking another tour with Alan when we are back in the area. He is worth every penny!! Thanks again Alan!

The Lewis Family of 6 from Iowa

Ottis Family – Houston, Texas – June 17, 2022

Great Tour!

Alan was the best guide possible! Highly, highly recommend his services! He tailored our tour to
exactly what we wanted for the time we had and did a great job teaching fun and interesting history facts to my son.

Cassie Orr – Irvine, California – June 16 and 18, 2022

Where do I begin? Alan was amazing. My girlfriend and I were in town for some work but had some time for play also. I booked Alan through platinum AMEX and he did not disappoint. Alan picked us up and took us exactly where we wanted to go giving us trivia and facts along the way. At the end of the first day, I had something come up and didn’t want him to have to wait past the time limit of the tour. Alan insisted on waiting for us. He truly went above and beyond.

We ended up hiring him again for a tour of Mount Vernon. Again, stellar job! He gave all the history and knowledge we were looking for. He truly is the best and I will be using him again next time I am in town. Thanks Alan!

Buckmaster Family – Oklahoma City, Oklahoma – June 11, 2022

Alan is a fabulous tour guide! I strongly recommend the Alan experience for any DC trip!

Our family booked a full day tour of DC and customized every bit of it. Alan was extremely accommodating and professional. We chatted on the phone ahead of time and he tailored the itinerary to exactly what we wanted (leaving out what we had already seen), giving us an action-packed day of visiting the sights and learning all along the way. Alan even took care of timed tickets (Ford’s and Mt. Vernon), meaning we truly didn’t have to think about or plan anything for that day!

For our custom tour, we went to Ford’s Theater, Arlington National Cemetery, and Mount Vernon, with a bonus stop at the Iwo Jima Memorial at the end. Alan was information-packed and so much fun, giving us fun trivia and quizzes all along the way. Every single stop was more meaningful and interesting because of what we learned! He also knew the best spots to take pictures, so we had a built-in photographer! The tour also included hotel pickup and drop off, which was so convenient (and helped our tired feet!).

Alan is extremely personable and fun. Even as the tour wrapped up, he played concierge and recommended places, restaurants, and things to do in the area to ensure that the rest of our trip would be great.

Lea Ann Miller – Hobbton High School Band Parent – Clinton, North Carolina – May 28-30, 2022

Alan was our tour guide on a recent trip to Washington, DC with our high school band. It was Memorial Day weekend so Washington, D.C. was very crowded.  Alan knew how to navigate the trip to give us the “most bang for our buck.” I have been on other DC trips over the years, but I learned more on this 2.5 day trip than all other trips combined. Alan is full of knowledge about DC, every President past and present, and any other American history topic you could possibly think of. He kept the kids entertained and interested! That’s a big deal when you have a group of 40 teenagers. He kept the parents and other chaperones entertained as well (and we might have kept him laughing too…) If you are considering hiring Alan as your DC tour guide, DO IT! Let him take the stress out of DC for you. I give him 5 stars!!!

Lea Ann Miller, Clinton, NC

Kat McKenzie – Hobbton High School Band Parent – North Carolina – May 28-30, 2022

Alan was an excellent tour guide. He took a bus full of high school students and made every effort to explain and answer questions from all students as well as the parents and staff. Alan knew his way around DC and was able to help navigate and keep everyone safe during our time in DC. Even after we got back to the hotel after the day’s tour, Alan was more than willing to talk with anyone about any questions and continue to share his previous experience with other groups. I will definitely want to go on another tour as long as it’s Alan leading that tour. Glad he took the extra time with these kids; everyone had a great time.

Kat McKenzie

The Schenk Family – Houston, Texas – May 18, 2022

 Fantastic experience!

We were a group of 3 adults and a toddler. We made arrangements the night before for the tour on a whim.
Alan was prompt picking us up from our Air BnB, we got the car seat installed in the vehicle and we were off!
Describing Alan in a few words: helpful, knowledgeable, cordial and verbose. He was fantastically patient with us and had a ton of stories and facts about everything we saw (and some we didn’t).
The tour was well organized: we started on Capitol Hill, then proceeded to a monuments tour (Washington, Lincoln, WWII, Vietnam, etc.). We wrapped the tour with Arlington National Cemetery and then back to the Air BnB, thoroughly satisfied and exhausted.
We really enjoyed our tour and highly recommend it!

The Jung, Pino and Albornoz Families – Los Angeles, California – April 16-19, 2022

Concierge Tours was simply the best way to experience our nation’s capital. We had a fabulous time with Alan guiding us on our personalized adventure. Alan went above and beyond to create a custom tour that highlighted all the important sites. Alan pre-purchased the needed tickets, gave us hotel and dining recommendations, and even sent us weather forecasts ahead of the trip. Alan was flexible and thoughtful and kept us all well fed and caffeinated. Alan is passionate about history and engaged the parents and the kids throughout the trip with his cool stories and plethora of facts. We all learned more than we ever imagined. We were a group of three families with junior high students that missed their school trip to the capital due to COVID. At the end of our tour, the kids said Alan’s tour was the best field trip ever!

-Hilary Jung – Los Angeles, CA

The Serdula Family – Charlotte, North Carolina – April 22, 2022

Absolutely the best guided tour of DC!

What a fantastic private tour! Alan was absolutely the perfect host and guide for our half day tour of Arlington Cemetery and The Capital district. Alan’s knowledge of the city and it’s history is second to none. Great laid-back demeanor and he accommodated our every need. Most bang for the buck of our entire visit! Stop searching now and book him today!

The Banks Family – Fresno, California – April 11, 2022

Best tour ever!

Our tour guide Alan was beyond Awesome. Alan did not just give basic facts about the places we visited, but he also included little known stories and tidbits. Alan’s love of history is obvious and infectious. He even made up little quizzes for us!
Alan was so personable and friendly. Alan picked us up at our hotel and on the thirty minute drive to Mount Vernon he pointed out several points of interest. Mount Vernon was so amazing. The outside grounds are beautiful, and the views of the Potomac River were breathtaking. Alan taught us a tremendous amount of information about George Washington and American history! Alan was so kind and patient with us as my husband is handicapped and Alan let us go at our own pace. We highly recommend Alan/Concierge Tours, LLC! Thank you, Alan! We had a great time!
-Ray and Jane Banks

The Shearer Family – Louisville, Kentucky – April 6, 2022

Our day with Alan was wonderful and so worth the tour. Alan’s stories and knowledge made our time at the museums and monuments so much richer. It added a level of intimacy into history that cannot be obtained by reading the pamphlets and history books. Also, having a private tour guide helped us avoid so many logistical errors that would have cost our family valuable time. Our kids loved it!!! I would definitely recommend Alan to anyone traveling to DC.

Courtney T. Shearer

Leila Christopher and the Ladies from South Dakota – March 29, 2022

Concierge tours will undoubtedly be our most memorable experience of our trip to Washington DC. Alan was by far the most entertaining tour guide we’ve ever encountered, from his knowledge of the area and historical accounts to his sometimes questionable but humorous anecdotes.  We appreciated the hand warmers and his helpful advice to aid tired feet.  We’re absolutely sure we’d highly recommend!

Leila Christopher

The Hewes Family – Enid, Oklahoma – March 15, 2022

Alan is a phenomenal tour guide! We learned more in five hours with Alan than we would have in five days on our own or with a big tour group. Alan is an awesome storyteller and he also did a great job of keeping our 8 and 10 year old boys engaged in the history lessons. I highly recommend!

The Manire Family – Rye, New York – February 23, 2022


Alan was the best guide! He filled the tour of Arlington and DC with history and stories that made it much more than a typical tour. Alan was especially good with my 11-year-old grandson, keeping him interested throughout. You can tell Alan loves what he does as he gives 100% to make sure the tour is a great experience for all!

The Gross Family – St. Louis, Missouri – February 18, 2022

My daughter and I had a great experience with Alan! We were in DC for a brief visit and with Alan’s help we were able to see and do so many more things than if we had tried to tackle it on our own. It was a treat to be able to focus on the sights with a knowledgeable, capable guide and not worry about the logistics of tickets, time and transportation.

Stephanie Gross

The Karfonta Family – Flint, Michigan – December 27, 2021

Recommending Alan

Alan was pretty cool for parents and kids. Optimistic and professional from the moment we promptly met. Alan personalized an itinerary quickly as we booked the tour only a night before. The ride was to our safety preference (discussed vaccine and masks early) and the vehicle was clean. Our children’s needs for novelty and breaks was accommodated to help adjust for their needs to focus and concentrate on historical lessons shared by Alan. Overall, it was a relaxing, educational, and fun tour.

The Mrvale Family – Orange County, California – November 22-23, 2021

We spent two days with Alan the week of Thanksgiving touring Washington D.C.  I would highly recommend that you hire Alan as your private tour guide. Alan not only made our time efficient through organizing our itinerary and planning out our day, but he also added a lot of value through making our time together very fun and informative. We were traveling in a group of 5, with kids aged 16, 13, and 9.  Alan engaged the kids with jokes, historical information, and great stories. He also kept them on their toes with pop quizzes during the trip to keep them engaged. As we traveled between destinations Alan would provide a great historical perspective of what we were going to see, including many neat antidotes that we would never have uncovered on our own. This added so much value when we got to the destination as we had the right context for what we were going to see, why it was important, and where it fit into the history of our country and government. I can’t recommend Alan highly enough.  It really will make your trip so much better. Everything was really comfortable and easy, which is a lot to say when you spend two consecutive days with a stranger.  Don’t hesitate…it is totally worth the investment!

The Shahidzadeh Family – Grand Prairie, Texas – November 21, 2021

Awesome experience. Highlight of our trip

We had A great tour with Alan. He is passionate about history and has a very easy-going personality. It was the highlight of our trip to Washington to be able to learn so many cool things about the city. We really appreciated how considerate he was and how much he went out of his way to make sure we had the best time possible. We will definitely see him again if we come back to the city. We did have a conflict in tour dates, but we called Alan and he easily accommodated us and went out of his way to make it work despite already being fully booked. Thanks Alan, we will see you again soon. Have a great season!

The Fruda Family – Boston, Massachusetts – October 30, 2021 

Hey friends, if you ever are in DC, we highly recommend Alan Feldman from Concierge Tours to host your visit to the area! Alan is not only very knowledgeable about American history, he is passionate about sharing his expertise with everyone. And, if you are lucky, he might even sing you a tune! We had a great day! Thanks Alan!

The Johnson Family – Minnesota – September 29, 2021

All the great things others have already said in their reviews – they’re all true. My husband and I booked Alan to help us tour Arlington National Cemetery and Washington DC with my in-laws.

We were limited on how much walking we could do, and Alan created the perfect plan. He rode the trolley with us at the cemetery and added much more commentary than we would have heard otherwise. Don’t pass on that opportunity thinking the cemetery’s trolley ride is enough! Alan’s knowledge made the experience far more valuable. We then did a driving tour of DC with a bit of walking at the end.

Alan was incredibly observant throughout the entire tour, keeping the pace in line with what he could see we needed. We are amazed at how much he knows! He made the tour so relaxed yet fun and informative that we can’t recommend him enough.

The Zenni Family – Illinois, Kentucky and Washington, DC – September 4, 2021

Highly recommend!

Alan was simply fantastic. I had my grandparents and mother in town for only one day and he managed to show them an incredible amount of DC in a very short period of time. His knowledge and passion for his work is immediately evident. Not only did we learn a ton, but we also really enjoyed getting to know him as well. I highly recommend his services for anyone looking to get to know DC a bit more.

The Straub Family – Wisconsin – August 20, 2021

Best way to explore DC and Arlington

We had a great tour with Alan! We had never been to DC before. We spent a few hours at Arlington, then drove to see some of the sights in DC as well. Alan was like a human history book, but knew information you wouldn’t find in your US History books as well. My kids (ages 15-21), my husband, and I learned so much during our time with Alan. We feel as though this is the best and most informative tour we have ever been on. In our opinion, this is the best way to explore DC. Now that we have a taste of DC, we hope to come back, and will do a tour with Alan again. Thanks for the enjoyable day!

The Stoppia Family – Switzerland – August 16, 2021

Despite the odds, a great tour day in DC

Months in advance I reserved our tour with Concierge Tours for myself, my wife and two close friends.  The idea of a customized private tour represented a great value even though it was not the least expensive tour available. It was worth every penny.  In one day we visited most of the very significant sights in the Greater DC area.  It was not just a visit, it was a carefully commented on, sensitively curated and energetically pursued tour through history, legend and fact.  As a former university history instructor, I can without reservation state that Alan’s research was pinpoint accurate and presented with wit and humor.

And to the odds, well despite the still ominous security presence past January 6, 2021, Alan still delivered an up front, on the spot, this is as good as it can get, downtown DC tour.  In addition, his extra commentary at Mt. Vernon really made the tour.  I had the tour thirty years ago, or so I thought, go with Alan if you want ‘The Tour’.  Our day started with a walk though Arlington National cemetery.  I now know it is so very much more than a cemetery.  All four of us on the tour will have many rich memories to carry for many years into the future.  Thank you, Alan.

The Gonzalez Family – Houston, Texas – August 1, 2021

Washington D.C. being the nation’s capital is full of this country’s interesting history, yet of course I am no student of history so I would be completely lost if it weren’t for our amazing tour guide Alan! My family and I were in awe as Alan beautifully explained the history of everything from the Washington Monument to Ford’s Theatre to Arlington National Cemetery and many more superb locations! Yet fear not if you worry about being drowned in boredom as Alan’s witty and humorous personality will bring many laughs! Thank you, Alan, for this remarkable experience and for all the history you have taught us all!

The Brannon Family – San Francisco, California – July 28, 2021

Alan went above and beyond our expectations for our day with him!  From the convenience of picking us up at our hotel in the morning, to sharing his wealth of knowledge and history, to keeping our {almost} teenage daughter engaged and entertained, we could not have had a better day.  The icing on the cake was the scooter rides around the National Mall with Marine One flying over us and landing at the White House!  We saw everything we wanted to see and learned more than we could try to retain.  You know it was a great day when your daughter says at the end, “I really liked learning so much today.”

Thank you so much for a great day, Alan.  Avery said, “Keep clucking, Big Chicken!”

The Council Family – San Diego, California – July 25, 2021

Best Decision Ever!

In deciding to visit DC, I was immersed with itinerary options. Traveling around a big city with a family can also be quite challenging. To further complicate things, one of my sons does not like big cities or large tour groups. We decided to look for a private tour guide as a treat to our family. I did my homework, found Alan, and it was totally worth it.

From the moment I contacted him, I felt like Alan was an old friend, talking through our options and opportunities. He was as excited about our trip as I was! He promised to give my kids lots of fun trivia and help us to see so much more around DC than if we were on our own. And Alan delivered! He picked us up from our hotel in a super comfortable car for our tour. With Alan leading the way, my family pretty much forgot we were in a big city at all. We loved Alan’s style and reveled in knowing some of the trivia answers.

I was the hero of the trip because I found Alan! I’ve already passed his information onto another family. My advice, hire Alan, but book him early because as word gets out, his slots are going to fill up fast. Thank you Alan for making our trip so fun and memorable!

The Canio Family – San Francisco, California – July 17, 2021

Best Washington DC tour experience!!!

Going to Arlington cemetery and Mount Vernon were the highlights of our tour, tons of history. My family learned more history compared when in school.
Alan is an exceptional tour guide.
He is very knowledgeable about U.S. history. Very engaging with our family of 5 (incl. 3 teens). There’s NO dull moment during the full day tour. LOVE the jeopardy-like trivia.
Accommodating, he was an immediate part of our family!
We were laughing most of the time.
Best memorable experience we are taking home.
We were lucky to have Alan as our tour guide, he’s the BESTt!!!
He’s also an awesome photographer.
Go Louis Armstrong :).

The Schejtman Family – Mexico City, Mexico – July 16, 2021


Allan nos hizo pasar un día inolvidable, muy atento y siempre dispuesto a darnos una experiencia unica

(Allan made us spend an unforgettable day, very attentive and always ready to give us a unique experience.)

The Saeluas Family – Honolulu, Hawaii – July 5, 2021

We scheduled a full day DC tour and evening tour of the monuments with Alan.  There is no way we could have learned all the information Alan presented us if we went on our own.  Alan is incredibly knowledgeable about history and passionate about his work, especially sharing fun facts about the area.  He is very personable and appreciates the fine details that only his private tour can offer.  My children will always remember what each coin represents on top of the headstones at Arlington National Cemetery.  They were both fascinated and awestruck with all the history shared by Alan.  We highly recommend Concierge Tours by Alan.  You will not be disappointed.

We love you Alan!

Aloha and Mahalo from your new Hawaii friends,

The Bowen Family – Columbus, Ohio – June 25, 2021

Incredible day with Alan in DC!!

Alan was our guide for the day, we didn’t have unlimited time in DC so knew that hiring a guide would maximize the time. ALAN ROCKED IT! He got us to all the major sites with incredible back stories that we would have never known had we gone solo. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and incredibly interesting to myself and my kids (14 and 17). I learned so much in our day together, and sincerely left that day knowing so much more about our nation’s capital.

The Williams Family – Monticello, Indiana – June 22-24, 2021

There are not enough words to describe our tours with Alan, but here are a few: interesting, entertaining, informative, humorous, courteous, timely, customized, well-paced, excellent value for the money, and well-organized.

Alan’s and his tours are a delight. Not only does Alan have an impressive and outstanding breadth and depth of knowledge of history, but he brings historical events to life. He does not just quote facts.  Alan paints a verbal picture of the events and the people, offering “interesting tidbits” that make historical figures come to life.

Alan is able to tie together the events so that you can envision both the broad picture of history as well as the details of individual events. Alan’s humor lightens up what could be very dry material.

As Senior Citizens, we appreciated the comfortable vehicle, and the care Alan took to make sure our pace was manageable.

We highly recommend Alan and Concierge Tours for anyone visiting DC. We will be back because of Alan.

Parsons Family and Friends – Shelbyville, Tennessee – June 9, 2021

Worth every dime!

Omgoodness I don’t have enough room to leave all the words to describe this tour. We started at Arlington and Alan’s information was beyond the average tour information. He was an encyclopedia of fun facts and pics throughout the whole tour. We saw so many sites and learned so much. We ended at the Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam Memorial, Korean Memorial area. Upon leaving we had an emergency of which Alan went above and beyond our expectations. His concern and genuine heartfelt compassion is rare these days. What a blessing to have gotten him as our tour guide. God is good and always on time. Thank you Alan… you will always be near and dear to our hearts!!!

Marie Helgeland – Michigan – May 20, 2021

Exceeded our expectations by a long shot!

The absolute most memorable part of our experience was our tour guide Alan Feldman! Two of my friends were traveling and one had not been to Washington, DC. She wanted an exceptional experience and was particularly interested in seeing and hearing the history of both Arlington National Cemetery, the Lincoln Memorial as well various other sites. Our first stop was Arlington and I thought I knew quite a bit about the history as I served 22 years in the United States Navy however, Alan knew far more than we did and we learned a tremendous amount. In addition to his knowledge of all of the places we requested he has a fantastic personality and you can easily tell that he enjoys what he is doing. He was extremely flexible when we wanted to see a couple more things that were not on our list. I encourage anyone who wants a “class act” to take this tour with Alan.

The Maccarone Family – Sacramento, California – June 1-2, 2021

There exists no finer tour guide than Alan Feldman

I wish I could rate this better than excellent! We took a night tour of DC and also a day tour of Arlington National Cemetery, Mt. Vernon, and Ford’s Theater.

All along the way, Alan told historical stories that were FUN and entertaining to the whole family. He was always surprising us with new facts and had a great rapport with us and our 10 and 12 year old children. His passion for history and his work is contagious.

Look no further if you’d like to tour DC… unless you want it to be boring!

The Monday Family – Lincoln, California – May 19, 2021 (DC) – May 24, 2021 (NYC)

Alan is amazing! Alan gave us a tour around DC and our experience was so awesome we asked him to give us a tour of New York City. Alan did not disappoint! My husband has some health restrictions and Alan worked around them and we saw so much more than we expected! I cannot say enough good things about Concierge Tours! If you are looking for a full day of exploring our Nation’s Capital or New York City, Alan is your man as he has such a wealth of information of both locations.

The Heine Family – Port Huron, Michigan – May 12, 2021

We had the best time!  We were nervous about what to expect and right from the beginning you told me not to worry.  Alan, you exceeded all of our expectations!  We loved your knowledge, your ease of getting around, your humor and kindness.  We have been reminding each other of all the tidbits of trivia and information you shared.  We will do this again with you and yes, we will never forget you.  We felt like we already knew you!

Jeanne E. and The McMillen Family – Phoenix, Arizona – May 9, 2021

I booked a full day tour with Alan for my Phoenix, Arizona family.  The 5 of us were extremely comfortable in Alan’s transportation vehicle.  Even with COVID, we saw everything possible in Washington!  Alan was personable and very knowledgeable about the history and events of DC.  We did both walking and driving tours.  I appreciated that Alan worked with me on a tailored itinerary and we saw a few locations off the beaten path.

I highly recommend Alan and Concierge tours.  A personal tour was a great use of our time and funds.  We saw much more of the city than we would have otherwise, in a comfortable vehicle with all our questions answered real time! Thanks Alan!

Bryan Family – Nashville, TN – April 2-3, 2021

Our family of 8 enjoyed a wonderful two days with Alan touring DC with great transportation and interesting trivia.  Alan kept the group motivated and entertained while hitting the sites. His organization and knowledge of the area was a huge help in creating a two day itinerary.  Great experience all around!!!

Muessig Family – Westchester, New York – February 15, 2021

Awesome Tour Guide! A Must-Do! This Tour Won’t Disappoint! 10/10! 5 Stars! Highly Recommend!

This was an excellent private tour. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and gave us a fantastic day in Washington D.C. We are well traveled and have high standards, and we were very happy with our tour guide. This tour was time and money well invested.

My wife and I booked a last-minute half-day tour with Concierge Tours. It was then that we made contact with the owner and operator, Alan Feldman. Alan was quick to respond and seemed to have an appreciation of what we were trying to achieve.

Alan was a fantastic tour guide, who was very knowledgeable.   He gave us lots of historical and cultural information and was more than happy to answer questions and even   ask   trivia   questions.   He   is   also   a   great   photographer, even though   he’s not a photographer. As Covid was an issue during our visit, Alan was prepared with pictures to accompany the history lesson.

Alan is a member of the Guild of Professional Tour Guides of Washington DC, which as he explained required knowing information of little significant locations such as restaurants. This information shows that he is very knowledgeable of the Washington D.C. area.

It’s evident that Alan enjoys telling the history of Washington D.C. and unknown information that comes along with it. As his website states, “Concierge Tours has a passion for showing you Washington, D.C. not only taking you to the sights and   monuments but leaving you with an appreciation and education that will last a lifetime.”  I can personally attest to this statement being 100% authentic.

Alan put together a half-day itinerary, which consisted of a tour of Arlington National Cemetery, the National Mall, Ford’s Theater and many other locations. Alan will be your own history nerd. The history of Alan’s nerd title came from his daughter, as he was her personal history nerd on a tour they did. Alan also drove us around showing us locations that fit into the larger story of visited locations. Alan does provide transportation that’s tailored to the group size. He is also willing to tour the National Mall on scooters if you don’t feel like walking.

We went on tour on a cold day and Alan even provided us with hand warmers!  The history lesson continued even as the tour was over. We had a bonus conversation with Alan on our drive home because he remembered things that he wanted to expand on.

Hilber Family – Austin, Texas – December 11, 2020

We had one day to visit Washington DC, and I am so glad that we chose to spend it with Alan Feldman and his Concierge Tours.  It is especially tricky to navigate DC now that the pandemic has shut many of the museums down, but our tour with him was so great that we frankly did not feel as if we missed anything.  We saw everything we wanted to see, and Alan has a masterful grasp of knowledge, not only of DC, but of American history. We are still talking about this trip and the day we spent with him. It was one of the great trips of our lifetime. We will definitely come back and enjoy another tour with him. His tour only whetted our appetite for more. Highly recommended!

Thanks, Alan!

Max Dobbs – San Diego, California – December 11, 2020

I really can’t say enough about my family’s tour with Alan from Concierge Tours. First of all I learned so much as the tour was educational and so much fun at the same time.   I normally don’t write reviews but, in this case, I felt it necessary because of the spectacular time I had.  Alan took his time, provided us with great facts and stories and didn’t give us the ‘Bum’s Rush’ as we were out touring all day.  I know I will remember this tour for the rest of my life.

The Larderoute Family – Kansas City, Missouri – December 2, 2020

We had a wonderful experience on our full day tour with Alan! We had one full day in Washington DC and was able to see everything! He was extremely knowledgeable on all sites in DC and kept us and my college kids entertained with his stories and fun facts that we would not have been able to experience on our own. Highly recommend, you won’t be disappointed!

Williams Family – Calipatria, California – September 22, 2020

Our experience with Alan on our trip to Washington DC was so much more than we could have expected especially during the Covid pandemic. Alan went above and beyond what my father and I would have been expected from a tour guide. Alan was knowledgeable, polite and accommodating to all of our needs.

Alan has knowledge and a passion for history and love for teaching history to anyone willing listen. From the moment Alan picked us up from our hotel to the moment we said goodbye on our second day was 5-star experience. Alan went above and beyond to make our trip to Washington DC memorable. Alan conducted our tour at our speed and when we couldn’t finish the tour in one day, he went out of his way and came back the next day and finished by showing us around the National Monuments of Washington DC. Despite the Covid Pandemic that caused a lot of places to be closed, Alan made sure that our trip to Washington DC was memorable and worth it.
I have to say our tour was the best guided tour experience I have ever had. I would highly recommend Alan and Concierge Tours for anyone going to visit Washington DC.

Thank you Alan and Concierge Tours

Bouchy Family – San Diego, California – August 29, 2020 

Our family of three had a full day D.C. tour with Alan during the pandemic and we could not have asked for a better, more efficient way to see and learn about D.C. and the surrounding areas. Alan engaged my 13 year-old son with questions throughout the entire day and he thoroughly enjoyed our educational (yet fun) day. Alan was so accommodating and picked us up and dropped us back off at our hotel, even though it was pretty far outside of the city. It would not have been possible for us to visit all of the places that we were able to with Alan on our own. We were able to see Mount Vernon, the Air and Space Museum, and all of the monuments that we wanted to see in D.C. Alan is obviously very passionate about the quality of his tours and his historical facts. I highly recommend Concierge Tours to anyone, but especially to anyone visiting that has limited time, as you will see and learn exponentially more than trying to do it on your own.

Emi Wilson – San Antonio, Texas
Alan is very nice, very responsive, and well spoken. Although, we did not get to do our tour due to Covid19, Alan was still willing to give us advice on where to go and things to view from the outside prior to leaving Washington. He spent a lot of time prior to the closure of places due to Covid19 making our itinerary fit our interest. We will defiantly be calling Concierge Tours when this pandemic is over and see Washington, DC with Alan’s assistance.

Anderson Family – San Francisco, California – February 17, 2020

Our kids (15 and 11) were skeptical when told we booked Washington DC for their winter ski break. Since we couldn’t bribe them with slopes, beaches, or roller coasters we turned to a professional, and boy did Alan deliver!

We spent the day learning a great deal, all the while with smiles on our faces. Alan gave a fantastic walking tour of the Capitol building and monuments, with insightful stories and anecdotes that made each site special. Alan’s passion for history went beyond facts and dates. Proof? Alan made the day so interesting that the kids’ phones were still fully charged at day’s end! Thank you Alan, our friends and family now know to call Concierge Tours when they visit DC!

Matt and Tae Anderson

Wingert Family – Fort Meyers, Florida – February 1, 2020

Alan should be recognized as a saint!! We spent all day with him and he provided a suburb experience. We saw all that we wished to see in DC and he was even kind enough to drive us all the way to Kensington, Maryland to see my childhood home. He patiently waited in the car while I toured the home with it’s new owners. When we return to DC in the future we will be sure to call him! You should too. Highly recommended. A+++

Tupua Family – Salt Lake City, Utah – January 29, 2020

Alan was not only great, he was beyond knowledgeable as our tour guide. I love history, so I was hesitant on having a tour guide but I’m so grateful we booked Alan with Concierge Tours. What I loved about Alan was, not only did he know his stuff, but he had all these little details which I LOVE!!!! Little facts interesting side facts that even the State Capitol tour guide didn’t mention. So whether you are a history lover or not, he is great at entertaining both. I must say it’s worth every penny and more!!! He picked us up from our hotel and we felt completely comfortable and ready to go. Alan was able to accommodate all of our little requests especially last minute ones. We were able to have lunch with him which was just as much fun. Reflecting on some of the things that we found fascinating and asking questions that we had from throughout the tour. Alan is great and if I were you book ASAP!!! When looking for a Tour guide find someone who loves and is passionate about your destination just as Alan was and it will get you even more excited about your trip. Thank you very much Alan!!!! Penny, Nickel, Dime, Quarter 😊

Karen Galasso – Boston, Massachusetts – January 21-22, 2020

Beyond expectations!!!

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!

-Blake Caudill

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

Awesome Tour!

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.

Thank you,

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.

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!

The Falls Family – Austin, Texas – March 19-22, 2019

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.

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!

The Libman Family – Cleveland, OH  12/25/2018

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.

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!

Rita Farsace Rochester, NY  10/22/2018
Where do I start? I booked a tour for my 9-year-old granddaughter and myself. Our tour guide Alan was beyond AMAZING. Alan did not just give basic facts about the places we visited, but he also included little known stories and legends. Alan’s love of history is obvious and infectious. Alan made up little quizzes for my granddaughter along the way that kept her on her toes and engaged. Alan developed a rapport with her that was incredible. She said the tour was the best part of our trip and she could not wait to get back to school and share everything she had learned. I myself learned a lot and enjoyed the experience immensely. I can’t recommend Alan and Concierge Tours highly enough especially if you have children going with you. I can’t wait until our next visit to DC, so we can book with Concierge Tours again and learn even more about the city and have a fun time doing it!! Thanks for everything Alan! You’re the best!!

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, California8/20/2018

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.

Amy from Charlotte 8/17 -8/18/2018
Thanks Alan!
We enjoyed our two days with you and vast knowledge of DC.  You brought history to life for all of my kids and were able to relate so well with each of them.  I think you have a real passion for this and it shows.  We also appreciated your flexibility in going along with what our families interest vs a scripted plan of how to tackle the city.  We will recommend you to anyone we know who visits DC.
Thanks so much!
Lydia from Michigan 6/18/2018 –  Concierge Tours lives up to its name!  We contacted about ten different tour companies in the DC area prior to making the trip out and landed on Concierge Tours because of the incredibly customer oriented service, the tour guide’s personality and expertise, and the fair and competitive pricing.  We found Alan to be knowledgeable and professional.  He wants his tour to be interesting and appreciated. He is patient and will tailor the tour to your desires.  We were very pleased and appreciated his timeliness with pickup and drop off as well.

May 25 at 10:22pm ·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 our tour guide in DC, we had 32 high school kids on our bus and he made it fun and informative all at the same time. The kids loved picking his brain and he had answers for everything and even learned a few things from them. Even in just normal conversation Alan threw in little facts here and there. It was great to have such a knowledgeable and fun man for a guide. Highly recommend!

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.

November 20, 2017 ·Not only was the tour informative, but Alan was fun and interesting! You could tell he was someone who was fascinated with the subject enough to start giving tours… way more enjoyable than the guide who sees it as a “9-5”. Highly recommended!

May 31, 2017 ·Thank you for such a memorable time in Washington D.C. The tour was very nice. I loved how during normal conversation you would slip in tidbits of history.
