Knowledgeable and entertaining guide - Our tour guide, Derrick, was very knowledgeable as well as entertaining. He kept things moving so we could enjoy every stop along the way. We appreciate his ability to help us to get us where we needed to go at the end of the tour - a great experience.

Fruitful tour of District of Columbia - Tour Guide (Chris) was a great narrator and made the trip around DC more enjoyable. The places we’ve reached was wonderful considering we only took less than 4 hours to do so which is near impossible on our own. We were provided extra history as well as water during the tour. Would recommend to others for the price we paid.

Nick was amazing - We highly recommend this company. We have just got off of a tour with Nick and he was incredible. One of the best tour guides that we've ever had. We got to see everything we wanted to see in DC and was told some great facts. Nick made it funny too.

Take advantage of this trip. Good value for cost. - Absolutely wonderful. We were late because of horrible traffic and the tour group was gracious enough to pick us up on their way back from the first stop on the tour, so we didn't have to miss. Chris Carter, the tour guide, was so knowledgeable, courteous and helpful w/stroller in/off the bus for our 4 and 7 year old. There's a bit of walking for young ones.

The most complete tour ever - We had a great time around DC. Our tour guide was Kris Carter and the driver was Kevin. The bus was pretty comfy and they’ve served us some water along the tour. Kris provided us plenty of useful historical information , fun facts and with a bunch of great jokes. Kevin was also in a great mood, and also making sure we watched our step while entering or leaving the bus. They’ve set a good time for us to walk around the places as well as take pictures. I came to visit the US from Brazil and it was really worthy!

Great Tour Guide, Great City! - Our most memorable part of the tour was Everything. It was awesome to see and visit all the monuments and historic buildings and learn about them at the same time. The tour would not have been so wonderful without Jackie, the tour guide and John the driver, they made a great team. I highly recommend this tour, especially for first time visitors.
