    Great overview of the monuments and memorials! Such a great way to see it all. Our guide Evan was fantastic! Learned so much in one day.

    Kris was a great driver and James was very knowledgeable. You certainly see a lot of monuments and it is pretty at night. We were glad we went.

    My family enjoyed our tour of D.C. very much. But I don’t think it would have even been the same had we not had Nick as our tour guide. He was so knowledgeable of the city and the history. You could tell he really loved his job. Nick went over and beyond to take care of those of us on his tour making sure everyone was enjoying their tour. He was very patient and showed so much care and concern for an elderly couple who had mobility issues and even for others that we encountered not even on our tour. We also had an amazing bus driver who kept us amused with his life stories. The two made such a great pair. I would definitely take this tour again.

    Loved our bus tour, our tour guide ( somehow I have forgotten his name but the driver that day was Antonio) was very knowledgeable and really brought you into the information by retelling some personal stories. At Mount Vernon we toured the grounds and the residence. At the residence/ gift shop we were able to choose from a few different venues for an appropriate and tasty bite to eat. Spacious area for eating where you can choose to eat on the patio or enclosed inside.

    As for the tour content, no spoilers from us, but suffice to say that it was a very rich life, both professionally and privately. I think the reason Washington resonates with so many people around the world is that his biography appeals to our better nature. He was who we all wish we could be.

    Ramon was fantastic. He grew up in this city and was a Wikipedia of info on everything we saw. And he made all those facts very entertaining. DC at night is something special, and we made the right choice with this tour.

    The amount of sights we got to see was pretty great for the price of the tickets. We simply would not have seen as much during our short stay had we not taken the tour. Chris was an excellent driver and did not at any point startle us navigating downtown DC traffic. He even went out of his way to ensure we had an umbrella to borrow since the weather wasn’t great.

    Negatives on the experience would include trying to do too much on the time allotted. We were speed walking through some of the attractions which was disappointing, but I also understand traffic in DC is kind of a wildcard. Chris even got us tickets (for the following day) when we couldn’t logistically make our time for entering the Washington Monument. While not ideal he did what he could there. James while an excellent guide overall repeats himself quite a bit. While safety stuff I get (i.e. slippery surfaces at monument, not looking when taking pics etc.) as people are dense and don’t pay attention, we literally had the same story about one of the monuments or something told to us four times. Minor but it was noticeable. I almost wonder if eliminating one of the stops might have made the pacing more reasonable.

    Overall we are happy though and enjoyed ourselves and would recommend to others.

    Was very pleased! The driver was nice, car was clean! We were picked up on time, were given as much time as we needed to look around and take pictures.

    Highly recommend this tour! We were met at our hotel by Alen in a clean, cool, spacious van. He led us through all the history. I would recommend requesting him if you can!!

    James, our tour guide, is very knowledgeable and did a great job in the time allotted. He had no control of the weather and it was a bit rainy, so go prepared.
    My daughter and 9 year old granddaughter enjoyed the basic tour with me.

    Exactly the type of tour we wanted; small group, great and informed commentary, all the major monuments/buildings included. Excellent!

    Couldn't believe the number of stops. Our guide Smokey gave so many extra details. Great learning experience. We got so close to the Whitehouse.

    The service was so awesome. From the door-to-door service. To being so knowledgeable about the history and letting us take our time to enjoy the monuments. I would highly recommend you to anyone. Thank you again.

    Beverley at the sales desk was awesome, very personable and knowledgeable.
    I do miss the driver narration, the pre-recording made me sleepy.
