Hello Fodorites, I have followed so many of other family’s trips the last few months and your comments/suggestions to them has helped me so much in planning our trip. Many of our tours are through our Congressman so I have had to redo our schedule every time we have gotten an update from them. Any suggestions or changes will be greatly appreciated!!
