Best plan we made
Sharon_B, Apr 2023
Dion (guide) and Mr Parker (driver) were the BEST!! I brought my mom who is in a wheelchair. They helped us load and unload, catered to her needs and helped us navigate. It meant the world to us both. Dion was chock full of information and fun facts along the tour. We missed blossoms in full bloom but still managed to find a few for the group. I highly recommend the tour if you want to see a lot, visit the key memorials and monuments in just a few hrs. The best part of our visit by far. THANK YOU for an awesome experience

Cheryl_B, Apr 2023
Some of the stops were very rushed and not enough time to see them. Also when we went to the White House we only saw a small portion from a distance through the opening of some trees.
Response from Host, May 2023
Thank you for that feedback. Do you by chance remember your tour guide's name? We would love to review this with them in order to improve the tour experience.
Solid Highlight Tour of Washington, D.C.
Victoria_C, Apr 2023
I very much enjoyed this tour! We visited multiple highlights of D.C. with a knowledgeable and humorous tour guide, who was a D.C. native and offered dining recommendations in the area. The tour featured stops near restrooms at the WWII Memorial and the Lincoln Memorial, which was much appreciated during the four hours. Would definitely recommend this tour, particularly for first-time visitors!
Great Experience
Keisha_P, Apr 2023
Tour guide Paul was amazing. He was very knowledgeable. The pick up location was very convenient for our hotel and the check in process was easy.
Good option for a short visit
Tatiana_V, Apr 2023
Great option for a short visit, an opportunity to see DC's main attractions in one tour. It was also a good solution for traveling with a senior riding between sites and doing short walks
Great tour !
Ron_L, Apr 2023
Thomas was awesome. A very knowledgeable and attentive tour guide and driver. Very informative and entertaining !
Great tour, lots of information.
Amy_D, Apr 2023
Great driver, Great tour guide, we felt a little rushed only because of the amount of places that our guide was trying to get to, you will struggle if you have mobility issues, there is lots of walking and steps.
Awesome tour!
Janet_M, Apr 2023
What an amazing tour. So much to see even though we were a bit late for the cherry 🌸. Our tour guide Jana was awesome. She was just full of great information and minutiae. I would recommend for others.
A Great way to see most of the D.C. monuments!
Donna_P, Apr 2023
Our tour guide Thomas was informative, patient and entertaining. He provided us with water on a hot day which was appreciated by all. He navigated the D.C. streets with great skill.
Excellent presentation,
Tim_B, Apr 2023
Bus check in on time . Driver and tour guide were excellent. The cherry trees were spectacular, very informative , do not think there could be a better condensed tour of DC.
Exploring Washington and its cherry blossoms 🌸
Regina_M, Apr 2023
This was by far one of the best tours I have been on. I think for the value and due to the high peak season it was so convenient. Pricing excellent, tour guide Mr Map was entertaining and very knowledgeable and kept us entertained. On our tour day it was a rainy morning and afternoon but they worked around the weather and some of the parking restrictions at certain monuments and stops. Our group really enjoyed it. Next time we come we will book a night tour
I would recommend. We had a wonderful time.
Kathleen_E, Apr 2023
Our tour guide and driver were excellent and a wealth of information. We were given plenty of time to enjoy each location.
A wonderful tour; full of great information and beautiful sights.

Our tour guide, Mr Map, was excellent! A native to DC, Mr Map had a wealth of knowledge to share. And the cherry blossoms were in full bloom. Wonderful day!
Personal experience
Laura_A, Mar 2023
I have recently moved to the capital from Houston, TX and want to get to know the city well and take advantage of all the great things it has to offer! The thing that stood out the most about this tour is how terrific Mr. Map, our guide, was!! I honestly appreciated the fact that he was a native Washingtonian and had great knowledge about the capital.
Beautiful cherry blossoms
