Fun - We had a great time touring with Bobby and Robert. They are very knowledgeable. It is the way to see DC. Loved Bobby’s “dad jokes”

Great guides, wonderful tour - Very nice tour. Alot. Packed into 8 hours. Our morning guide Charles was fantastic. Our afterrnoon guide, Robert was great and so knowledgeable. Only thing I would change is that Robert really used the horn. But, we did get around very fast.

A lot to see in Mount Vernon. - A must do trip if you are visiting Washington DC. Partner this tour with a half day monument tour. You can't go wrong.

Great way to see the highlights - We had a great experience. The tour is actually 2 different tours on the same day. We missed our bus from the morning session but were able to get on a second. We were appreciative that the bus to Mount Vernon waited for us. You need to move quickly through the DC monuments, but it is enough to get a quick photo at them. The Mount Vernon tour was more leisurely and the let that I enjoyed the most. All tour guides were very knowledgeable.

See DC - Good tour. It lasted longer than expected because we had to change tour busses before we went to Mount Vernon. That was supposed to be a 2 hr part but we ended up on a 4 hr tour.

Almost perfect - I cannot remember the name of our 1st driver, but he is why I gave it a 4. He refused to use the microphone so no one could hear him at all. He was talking about the monuments, white house. Congressional buildings so info we wanted to know! Very frustrating. For Mount Vernon we had Robert and he was extraordinary! Extremely knowledgeable, used the microphone and even met me the next day so I could retrieve an item we left on the bus. If the 1st driver had been heard,this would be a 5 star.

Bad experience - Our tour was cancelled and rescheduled the afternoon before it was scheduled, which scrambled all the other events we had planned for our 3 day stay in Washington DC. VERY DISAPPOINTING!! It was rescheduled due to road closures in the 4th of July. I am pretty sure that information was available prior to the day before!?!?
