Guide was informative and a joy to be with. It was a cold day but we had a great time anyway. Good time had by all.
Great orientation to DC
Daaron_D, Mar 2023
Really enjoyed the tour, running by several places and stopping for pictures. Instead of the bus and 100 others at the same price, you get a quieter and more personal experience.
Definitely worth it!
Carolyn_T, Mar 2023
A great way to see a lot of iconic sights in DC in an environmentally friendly way. As a photographer I was able to take lots of photos without interference from other people or windows. Henry was a fabulous tour guide.
Will do again.
Tiffany_C, Mar 2023
This was our first tour in DC and I highly recommend it. It was a cold day, and the guide brought big nice blankets for us to bundle up in. It was a very educational and fun tour. I can’t remember our tour guides name but she was from New York and knew everyone and everything. 10/10 recommend.

A really great way to see what the city has to offer in a decent amount of time! Our guide, Teddy, was awesome! He made it fun for us and honestly was the best part of our tour! Would come again. Thank you!
The guide was very...
Gregg_G, Feb 2023
The guide was very informative and gave us time in the areas of the tour that we wanted time and it was very enjoyable
Fun ride, kind of dull tour
Eugenie_R, Feb 2023
Riding in an open air cart was really fun for the kids, particularly good on a hot day. Our guide was sweet, but overall the content of the tour was pretty dry—date-heavy mostly architectural tour. I would have liked to learn more about people and events, both current and historic and heard funny or memorable stories as we’ve enjoyed on tours of other cities.
Not what I was expecting.
Theresa_M, Feb 2023
I was a bit disappointed. Our tour was I. Mid February, so I knew there was a chance it would be cold, but the site stated they provided blankets and the image of the “car” was enclosed. However, since we have 6 passengers-when we arrived it was an open “car” and no blankets were provided - it had been raining that morning and they indicated they would get wet. I had also hoped the guide would be walking with us to the monuments and providing the history and details. Our driver was very knowledgeable, but only from the “car”. We overheard another tour (from another company) the night before and I was hopeful we would have the same experience. Please be more accurate with your communications.
