The Guild of Professional Tour Guides of Washington, D.C.

Mrs. Shannon Mikush


Dear Mrs. Mikush,


I am writing this letter to recommend Ms. S. Destinie Jones for membership at the Guild of Professional Tour Guides of Washington, D.C. Having recently attended a tour that was conducted by Ms. Jones (the theme was “Early Integration Neighborhoods of D.C.: Shepherd Park”), I can state that she displayed both a sound knowledge of her subject, as well as a sincere passion for it. During the tour, she showcased a sense of attention to historical, geographical and social details that can be easily overlooked, and presented her material in a captivating and unconventional manner.


I have full confidence that Ms. Jones will be a strong asset within the Guild, and offer a high recommendation. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
