    Tour was an excellent introduction to a great stay in Washington, DC for anyone interested in seeing all of the important sites.
    Scenic, and memorable.

    I enjoyed touring near the White house, seeing capital hill, and getting to meet other people on the tour.
    Great way to see the highlights
    Rachel_S, July 2022
    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.
    Bad experience
    raymond_L, July 2022
    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!?!?
    Almost perfect
    Stacy_G, June 2022
    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.
    Awesome tour with Paul our guide
    Rosemary_M, May 2022
    Tour with Paul was amazing. He is very knowledgeable of American history and all of the Washington sites in addition to being very entertaining! Highly recommend this tour!
    Educational and Fun
    Monica_D, Oct 2021
    Very informational and fun! It was nice being able to see so many sites and not have to fight traffic and walk all day. Our tour guide was very kind and helpful. He ensured everyone was taken care of and safe. We are so glad we decided to take the all day tour. It is something we will always remember fondly.
    Great experience.
