Great overview of monuments
Kari_D, Dec 2022
It was wonderful to see all the most famous monuments so easily and not worry about parking or driving. However, our guide started with “let me know any time you have a question” and then literally did not take a breath until he dropped us off. He talked extremely fast the whole time without giving question time or trying to get to know us in any way (He didn’t even ask our names and we were only 3 people; his wife didn’t even say Good Morning). He was certainly very knowledgeable, but not very personable or humorous at all. He was very annoyed that we took too long at one of the stops, but then ended our tour 15 minutes early. Also, the night before our tour we received very chaotic communication about changing our reservation, only to end up keeping it the same, which added unnecessary stress and confusion. Overall, it was a very convenient way to get an overview and photo op of the famous monuments and the White House, but on an interpersonal level, we did not feel entirely comfortable.
Express tour of few attractions
The tour guide was very nice. But it was not half a day it was very quick and around 3 hours. I was expecting a better tour meaning tour guid , guide us through the sites and travel not just in vehicle. Other countries mostly guide take us and explain main things and then give us free time to meet. Our guid didnt come with us. He was only in the vehicle , we got lost in the arlington cemetery.
We were able to spend...
Shari_R, Oct 2022
We were able to spend time at Arlington National cemetery, which we really enjoyed. Everyone was understanding of my slowness from my disability. A very good trip to let us know what places we would like to spend more time on later.
Great Trip me & the hubby enjoyed.
Shirley_S, Oct 2022
Viewing all the educational facts in D.C for better knowledge of the history of the United States. Victor was great and shared lots & lots of informative information! Thanks
Informative bilingual tour.
Jeannette_L, Oct 2022
Our guide gave the tour in both English and Spanish, asked questions to keep us seeing sights in new ways, and was very knowledgable about each sight we saw. I learned a lot and enjoyed the tour.
Incredible tour!
Lucas_Z, Aug 2022
I did the tour in Spanish with my family, who were visiting from Argentina. The van was full but still felt private — much better than the big double decker buses. Victor was an incredible tour guide with lots of interesting knowledge of DC, even for a local like me. There was never a full moment — even the drive between memorials was beautiful. A bit more expensive than some other tours I’ve done but worth the difference!
The bus never showed up
NielsPeter_E, July 2022
The bus never showed up , we was waiting more than 1 - 1/2 over - 20 people have to rebook, no discount was offered.
Awesome DC Tour!
Andras_T, July 2022
Our guide, Sebastian was awesome! We were treated as VIPs from the beginning. Picked up and dropped off at our hotel in a luxury SUV. We were never rushed, plenty of time at each of our stops to see/take pictures at the monuments. Phone chargers and cold water was offered throughout the tour. Over all it was definitely a five star experience,
Best tour
Dorinda_B, May 2022
We had a great time. There were only 3 others that booked so we had a total of 5. Our guide was great and knowledgeable. When I come back with my grandkids, I will take this tour again.
Great experience
Rebecca_M, Feb 2022
Helga was our guide. She was great; very informative and friendly. No one else happened to purchase this tour when we went; so, we got a private tour. We got to see so much and took amazing pictures. I highly recommend this tour!
Response from Host, May 2022
Very glad to have heard your amazing time with Helga, on of our best!
Viator of DC and tour guide Michelle were both fantastic!
Christopher_S, Feb 2022
It ended up being a private tour with myself and my friend George. We were able to move the tour up from 1 pm to 9:30 am, which helped us see more things in DC in the afternoon. Michelle was extremely knowlegeable about DC and the national monuments and museums. Michelle then completed our tour by dropping us off at the National Archives, which really helps if you have other places you want to visit and spend more time visiting after the tour! Highly recommended tour!

Nice tour
Gail_R, Oct 2021
It was nice to see all the monuments up close. The driver had an accent and was difficult to understand at times but had a lot of interesting information. He was nice enough to drop us off at Holocaust Museum which was where we were going after the tour
Response from Host, May 2022
Very pleased you got to learn interesting information from our tour guides!

Response from Host, May 2022
Happy you learned some fascinating new information!
The driver was very...
Delmar_N, Sept 2021
The driver was very knowledgeable. The stops were timely, and included exoected monuments. Dissapointing-we didnt get to tour white house
Response from Host, Sept 2021
We are so glad everyone had a great time and got to learn too! I know it is so wonderful once you walked on the grounds outside the White House during your tour -as we mentioned during the tour- entering inside the White House is currently closed due to the pandemic for over 12 months now. In order to enter the White House once they resume internal visits, you will need to contact your congress person directly at least three month in advance, go through a security clearance/identity verification and confirm a day/time to enter. Although it is closed currently, you are still able to send in your request and hopefully that way once they open their doors- you will be one of the first that they begin the process/scheduling. Best of luck!
