Worth the price - Sam was a wonderful and knowledgeable tour guide and the tour was so worth it. We hit the popular memorials and monuments and the bust was comfortable, although a little smelly.

stick to the Tour, other dialect about personal feelings Keep out - tour guide seamed not to trust with her comments about police and security comments thruout the tour as they may not seem kind to her. Also speaking of the past president in a negative way a few times. I actually like our police and security force and our past president. I wish she would stick to Tour attractions.

WORST!! DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY - The worst tour guide ever,full of attitude This tour is waste of money. Though there was no Potomac cruise, still the tour guide rushed everyone and didn't allow to stay. This is a ripoff tour.
