You are spoiled.
Jay_L, Apr 2023
Tunde was great. Van was very comfortable. Totally flexible on where we went and in what order. Great with our grandkids. My wife left her cane in the van and Tunde brought it back to our hotel on his own time that evening.

Angel_B, Aug 2022
My team had an amazing time! Our professional driver and tour guide "Tunde" was exceptional! He went above and beyond our expectation. Viator agent "Mark John" was amazing and helped me picked the right tour for my team. Tunde and Mark John are very friendly and professional. Thank you for making our experience one of a kind! They were both easy to work with and will go with the flow with our needs. Thank you very much and we appreciate you guys and your team!

Great Tour
Alice_R, Aug 2022
Great way to see the monuments! We would never have covered this much in a morning by ourselves. The tour guide was interesting, knowledgeable and friendly.

Private tour of DC
Mary_S, July 2022
Great experience with a knowledgeable and personable driver. He took us where we asked him to go and was patient when we chose to spend more ( or less) time at certain places.

Thanks we appreciate your business and review.
Memorable time with friends!

Not what was expected - transportation not tour with informed guide
Kim_B, June 2022
Transport was clean and well presented. Our driver was pleasant and punctual, provided water, yet at times was difficult to understand. I would not recommend this as a private tour of city highlights as advertised if you are expecting an informed tour guide to support your highlights stopover at each of the major sites.. It is more of a convenient yet very expensive transportation from one site to another. Minimal knowledge was shared that one would not know already as a visiting tourist and most can be walked and linked. Uber/taxi/e scooter/bike and a well planned route of city’s highlights could be done at a fraction of the cost.
Response from Host, June 2022
We appreciate your business and review.All our Guides are experienced and Good students of history and moving forward we shall use this to improve better. Thanks Again.
Subpar experience
RamonKumar, June 2022
Terrible. They tried to only give us 3 hours….had to call the manager to let us have entire 4 hours. Half the monuments he would not bring us to. Knowledgeable driver, but not the most polite…..
Response from Host, June 2022
There was a lot of road closures on your tour date,hence he wasn’t able to accommodate all of the stops. I believe you had 4hours tour and you used your entire time. Thanks for your business we appreciate you .
Tunde was great!
MarthaMoreira, May 2022
Tunde was excellent and very knowledgeable. He made sure we got to see the sights and made it a great day
Response from Host, May 2022
Thanks,we appreciate your business and review.
Disastrous tour
Julian_S, May 2022
We were dropped off at Arlington and the guide/van left us there. When we called to be picked up, we were waiting for more than an hour and ended up taking the train back to the city.
Response from Host, May 2022
In as much as we try to please our customers,there are some situations beyond our control .And that was especially true because two events was going on simultaneously,the Lincoln memorial Centennial and Memorial Day celebration hence the delay in picking your party up because roads were closed. I did spoke to the lead traveler and apologized and made partial refund of $150.We thank you for your business and review.
Tunde is an excellent guide…
James_B, Apr 2022
Tunde was an excellent guide who made the trip most informative and enjoyable for our five grandchildren and the adults as well. A warm and welcoming presence and a great sense of humor - and the Mercedes Sprinter was clean and comfortable. He helped us make the most of our DC tour.
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Thanks we appreciate your business.Hope to see you in the near future.Regards to all.
Great experience with young children
Adam_H, Apr 2022
Victor was absolutely great. We had two couple with 2 babies under 2 years old. He was very patient and we had plenty of room in the van. Definitely recommend!!!
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Thanks for your business and review.Go Mountaineers.
Great experience!
Christopher_I, Mar 2022
Cheerful and knowledgeable guide, navigating the city and explicitly explaining relevance of sites visited.
Response from Host, Mar 2022
Thanks we appreciate your business.
Jacqueline_H, Feb 2022
We were led to believe admittance to the White House for 20 minutes was included as listed on the itinerary Starting point so are disappointed and this was the reason we chose this particular tour (albeit we thought it was unusual) but definitely misleading phrasing on behalf of the tour company
Response from Host, Feb 2022
Not Accurate:No one led your party to believe that admittance to the White House was included on the tour you chose.It was explained to you what is required to visit the White House and that it takes upwards of 3months when you apply through your embassy if you are a foreigner and through your congressman or Senator if you an American citizen. We also reached out to your party several times so we could discuss your itinerary but no response,so in the future we suggest you read the fine prints so that there’s no misunderstanding . Thanks
Thank you for making our trip to D.C. amazing Tundey!

Fifty Year Celebration
Sylvia_D, Dec 2021
Fifty Year Anniversary Celebration was a success! My husband and I wanted to celebrate fifty years of marriage with a trip to DC. It was a most enjoyable experience. One of highlights of our trip was the four hour private tour. Our tour guide was super! He treated us like royalty. Both my husband and I have slight mobility issues, and our guide was patient and kind. We crammed as much into our time as we possibly could and had a grand time doing it. Thank you for making this milestone in our lives a true celebration.
Response from Host, Dec 2021
Happy Anniversary,we are glad to be part of an awesome event.
Best way to see the DC highlights
Jonathan_F, Nov 2021
Bernard was very accommodating and friendly. We covered quite a lot of ground during the time, and he hit all the top items we wanted to see, even with a few extra bonuses thrown in. I highly recommend this tour if you’re looking to see all the highlights without having to do your own walking/driving and exploring.
Response from Host, Nov 2021
Thanks for your review and business
Accommodating and comfortable
Veruzcka_M, Nov 2021
It was the perfect choice and they were very accommodating, since it was too cold to walk to all the places
Response from Host, Nov 2021
Thanks for your business and review.
