We really liked our tour guide..couldn't tell you his name, but he was an old hippie type that was very friendly and knowledgeable, which made the bus ride even better. The only part of the bus ride that disappointed my kids (15 year old twins) is that they wanted to really see the White House but the closest we got was way across the street and were only able to see it thru trees. Pretty disappointing. However, the rest of the tour was a lot of fun and we really appreciated getting dropped off at the hotel instead of the designated meeting spot!!!
We went on Thursday, November 29, 2018. What made this experience great was our tour guide, Bella. She was very personable, and extremely knowledgeable about the sights. Our driver, was fabulous as well, very safe driver!
This was a great tour. Larry our tour guide was so much fun. He paid attention to the kids as much as the adults and that made them feel special. Everyone had a great time from 5-50. In fact they said the tour was their favorite part of our DC trip!!
Larry and Alberto were great!
Larry was an excellent tour guide. He made sure that we had adequate time to walk around the monuments, and his information was thorough and fascinating. Daryl did a great job driving from place to place. He also provided bottled water for us which was well needed on a hot, humid evening.
The tour covered the most significant areas and monuments.The bus was comfortable and warm on a cold night.Our guide and narrator was excellent.He added history and color to the trip.We thoroughly enjoyed it.
Very good overall, my only suggestion would be, warm beverages and/or alcoholic beverages were available
Our plane arrived late. I was so excited to get a call asking if we were going to make it. They waited and check on us. I don't know any other tour company that would do that. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and patient answer all of our questions it was wonderful. Thank you!
Larry was a great tour guide. Great evening.
IT WAS A GREAT WAY TO VIEW THE MONUMENTS. tHE ONLY ONE I WAS DISAPPOINTED IN WAS THE VIETNAM WAR MEMORIAL; IT WAS JUST TOO DARK TOO BE ABLE TO SEE IT ADEQUATELY
The tour guide walked entirely too fast that they didn’t notice no one was behind them. The guide would give a time to be back, but would leave 2-3 minutes ahead of time.
Tour guide was great, nice to be able to get off the bus to take pictures, time spent each site - good, clean van, pick up/dropoff at hotel (Hyatt Place) convenient and appreciated
Larry was very knowledgeable and fun.
Willis our Guide was great.. Was very informative..

Larry was a great host we loved it! Thank you
Great tour guide (Larry). He was fun and herded the cats pretty well.
The bus was in very poor repair. There was something all over the back window which appeared to be vomit. The seat in front of me was ripped to the point to filling was falling out. The tour guide was informative but not engaging.
Everything was fine, but pity that several monuments are poorly lit in the evening and there wasn't available audio guides in other languages other than english.
Tour was nice! I only wished the bus was as described on website- 10-15 person mini van not a full sizecoach bus- we also received water bottles at last stop instead of mid way when we were parched- tour guide was super and bus driver on point If I could make a suggestion for the White House visit - be sure not too bring tour group in the middle of protestors some of us had children with us-
Larry did a wonderful job
Mark was amazing! So amazing we booked two more tours with on board!
Liked the location we saw and the guide Willis
All went smoothly but might have liked to spend a bit more time at each location.
The tour guide, John, was awesome. He kept it entertaining throughout the tour. We did not get very long at a few of the memorials which would have added to the enjoyment. I'd suggest a drive by of the Capitol building as there is not much to see from where we stopped, and allow folks more time at Vietnam memorial.
Dylan was an outstanding tour guide.
Our 6 hour daytime tour with Josh was great. Well paced, interesting facts, very personable. Bonus points for picking us up and dropping us off at our hotel !! Nighttime tour was prettier but felt more rushed. Again bonus points for hotel pickup and drop off
The guide was very knowledgeable about all the monuments and history around Washington DC. He had wonderful stories about each historic site and about many Presidents and their families. My 2girls friends and I really enjoyed this and got a lot out of it. It was a beautiful night. Thanks for the water bottles and the stories.
For the most part it was pretty good could have used more time to take pictures. Drop off was supposed to be where we were picked up but 2 and a half blocks away_or so good for visitors. Water was warm
Great overall plan; guide was nice and shared some insights but we hoped for more narration and history on the city; also wished that The Pentagon Memorial would have been included in the night tour...good tour overall
Dylan was so knowledgeable about the City & gave so many interesting stories. I absolutely loved this tour & would highly recommend it to others!!
Everything about this tour was wonderful! The places, the venue, and the tour guide (Dylan) was top notch! Keep up the great work, blessings!
Our tour guide really knew what he was talking about and he gave us just the right amount of time at each of the memorials. It was one of the best tours that I went on on this vacations and I highly recommend it to others.
