Super fun, educating and entertaining
Haya_A, Apr 2022
The tour guide Bobby and his amazing sense of humor is the most memorable part of my trip. He educated us in a very entertaining way. I also almost got lost the group but everyone looked for me and I continued the tour with them.
Excellent tour
Carol_P, Apr 2022
Excellent tour! The guide was very informative and very accommodating. It was nice to have the choice of getting off or staying in the bus.
Terrible for folks with medical issues
Sara_K, Mar 2022
Didn't get to go but still charged terrible guests service when reason why was a sudden medical reason they choose not to accommodate me but did another group
If he stuck to history all would be well
Linda_B, Nov 2021
Bobby knows his history, but his comments regarding subjects that should not be discussed including abortion are inappropriate and could be a law suit waiting to happen. I wish I had read the reviews before I booked at maybe we could have avoided being with Bobby!
Best express trip
Nakhat_M, Sept 2021
Comfy mini bus, taking pictures at capital hill and White House and warm welcoming driver / guide Best treatment at Hyatt hotel 👍🏻👍🏻
Avoid if you're conservative and/or catholic
MDH, Jan 2021
I understand the our country is divided over politics, but as tour company who serves anyone, political opinions should be kept to themselves. I did not appreciate that our guide made a joke in front of our elementary age kids involving abortion even after expressing our disapproval before his punchline. We were there to learn/teach American history, but what we got was unsolicited opinions that we did not share.
Bobby is great
Steve_K, Feb 2020
Bobby was delightful. His knowledge of the history of the area was awesome. He knew just how much time to allow for each sight to get the best experience for the whole trip. His sense of humor made the trips wonderful experience.

We totally enjoyed this Washington, DC Express Sightseeing tour yesterday. Out tour guide promised the three E's Entertainment. Enjoyment and Enlightenment and he provided all three of those for me and my daughter. We were in town for a business trip and only had a few hours free time. This trip fit that time line perfectly. My family has never been disappointed in a Viator tour.

Our tour guide, Robert, was amazingly wonderful! We saw so very much and gained a lot of our knowledge to begin the tour of D.C. from him!! He went above and beyond to make it a great experience and we enjoyed all of it. Thanks Robert! (Keep him-he deserves a raise)

Judith D, Jan 2014
Definitely the best thing I did in Washington. My tour guide was brilliant. I was the only person on this tour which made it amazing. You see all the important monuments and have as much time as you need to take everything in. I would highly recommend this tour. It covers all the bases.

When I got there I just found out I was the only person who signed up for Friday afternoon tour. Even so the guide still did his job professionally and treated me like a queen lol. The trip was fun and I had a great time.

Sidney C, June 2013
After 4 phone calls and waiting one hour to be picked up at the Hyatt Regency on June 3, we finally got started. The driver, Bobby, was knowledgeable but never failed to insert his political view and even bragged about being a Democrat based on John F. Kennedy's run for office when he (Bobby) was 6 years old. We did not appreciate his off-color remarks and double entendres in front of our 10-year old grandson. We were offered no bottled water as mentioned in your promotional material. The delay in starting our tour resulted in a shortened visit to The Spy Museum. I would suggest an improved communication system in your company - I even called 24 hours in advance to confirm our reservation and pick-up point. Overall - a huge disappointment and not worth the money.

Matthias K, Apr 2014
Ich war der einzige Gast an Bord, Tourguide Robert nahm sich viel Zeit, erzählte die ein oder andere Anekdote, auch aus seiner Zeit als G.I. in Deutschland, vergaß aber zu keiner geschichtliche Details zur Tour und den Sehenswürdigkeiten...best Tour ever !
