This is a must for anyone truly interested in the history of the White House, and the Presidency. Paul has a wealth of knowledge that he very much enjoys sharing. He encourages questions as you go along and isn't stuck on any particlur script or sequence. Besides learning a great deal, I was very much entertained by the stories and opinions Paul offers. If you have the privalige of taking this tour, I highly recommend it. Highlight of my trip, thanks Paul!
We enjoyed the tour with Paul and would recommend it to anyone. We had no expectations and were pleasantly surprised and everyone in our group discovered more about the White House.
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed Paul's walking tour in front of the White House. Not only was he very knowledgeable on the history of the White House and the Presidents, but he was also very personable. It says a lot when both of my teenagers enjoyed the experience.
We had a great time on this tour. Paul knows a lot of interesting facts about the White House. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and open to questions.
Had a great slow stroll and factoid laden walk in front of the WH with Paul. He knows a lot of great hidden gems of info. If you have time before hand think up some questions, the goal is to stump him. :-)
Paul was fantastic. Gave us lots of interesting information. The White House came to life. Memorable experience. Very different from the usual tour guide. Sue & Jim from Sydney Australia
My family and I met Paul on the north side of the White House in early August. Despite having varying levels of interest in politics, we all really enjoyed Paul's tour. He went room by room across the White House, and answered any and all questions we had about him, his work, White House correspondents generally, and of course the President and White House. He was able to give us an idea of that world that I don't think we would have gotten even if we had spent hours reading books on the same subjects. If White House tours are still cancelled when you next travel to Washington (or even if they're not), I highly recommend meeting Paul (and asking him as many questions as you can think of!).
Paul's tour was excellent! Paul spoke to our group of 12, ranging in age from 16-65, and engaged us all in the stories of the White House and its occupants. Everyone in our group found the tour exceptional. Paul even took the time to learn about what we were doing in the city (working with agencies helping the needy across DC) and tailored his tour to some things that we were interested in. Thanks for a great visit! I'd recommend this tour to anyone!
Even though we had to stand across the White House because a protest forced a security perimeter, Mr. Paul made it incredibly enjoyable and informative. Definitely worth it!
My family and I had a great time on this tour. The tour guide, Paul Brandus, is very informative and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this tour for anyone interested in learning about the White House and its history. It is also a unique opportunity to talk with someone who works inside the White House -- which does not happen every day!
