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.
We had a great experience on the DC Lights Tour. Mark, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and interesting. The tour had ample time to look around and take pictures.
Good tour guide and driver, but we ran way past 10:30pm. It was great to pack in so many monuments, but perhaps too aggressively.
Great tour guide
Jonathan was so informative and entertaining! He waited for us at every monument before he began speaking.
Tour guide was fun and knowledgeable. Only downside was we got caught outside in a rain storm, but what are you going to do.
We enjoyed getting out and walking part of the tour to see the monuments/memorials up close. However the Vietnam memorial was a little disappointing at night. I have seen it during the day before and didn't have the "wow" factor at night for me. Everything else was perfect!
Jonathan was very nice and knowledgeable
We really liked the tour. Our guide, John, was knowledgeable and funny. Our driver was also very good. Our only issue was that I was told the tour would end at 10:30. Most parking garages in DC close at 10:00. We found a garage open until 11:00 and parked their. Our tour ran late, however, and we had to basically run off the bus and down the block to our car to make it out of the garage by closing.
It was so special. John our tour guide was very informative and very funny too. It was a rainy evening and the John and our driver went out of their way to make the evening special. Also, as a single women, doing the tour by myself I felt completely safe. I go see all the sites in a safe and comfortable environment! I highly recommend this tour.
It was an excellent tour
My recommendation would to include a drop off location (maybe a pick up location as well) at a Metro Stop. There were several people from our tour that had to walk to the Metro stop. It would have been more accommodating to include that as a stop. I loved our driver. He had a kind disposition and seemed like a sweetheart. The guide seemed knowledgeable but was not open to making a stop at the Metro. I was concerned about finding my way back to the Metro. When I asked him about it a second time his response was a bit short when he said “we’ve already talked about this”. Obviously if I’m asking about it a second time, I still have concerns. Th guide did catch up with us and confirmed that we found the stop.
It was a nice time with my family
Our guide was knowledgeable, thoughtful and entertaining.
