Arlington National cemetery was great. Matt was a great tour guide. Wish we had more time to see the museums in DC
Worth it
Bernadette_M, Mar 2023
Loved not having to maneuver DC alone. Matt was very knowledgeable, wishwe had taken other tours he was giving. It was a long interactive day, we enjoyed it!
Awesome Tour
SHARON_M, Dec 2022
I enjoyed the full day tour of Washington DC. John, the tour guide was very knowledgeable about all the stops we made. The tour was fun and educational. I was not aware there was an African American Smithsonian until we were leaving the area. I wish John had mention it when we arrived and I would have visited. This was an awesome tour. I would recommend this tour to every one I meet.
Fun Filled Jam Packed Day!

Our tour guide Matt was incredible. He is so knowledgeable and personable. We were able to see the highlights and made Washington a reality. We would definitely take this tour again with Matt!!!
Don’t miss this opportunity!
Michael_M, Nov 2022
We loved the tour that we took with Matt. We were able to see so many of the historical sites. One of the most special parts of the day was seeing the ceremony for the Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Matt made sure we had the opportunity to see it up close. We even had free time to grab lunch and go into the Smithsonian National Museum of American History. We love history. My husband is retired from the military and Matt even fulfilled a request for one of the stops that I knew my husband wanted to see. Matt was very informative, kind, and always had a sense of humor. Overall, the day was packed with adventure and even some surprises. I recommend this tour for people of all ages. It was also economical and well worth the price. -Paula
Great introductory day tour, excellent guides
Rosemary_R, Oct 2022
Excellent tour, so happy to coordinate this for our family. Matt was am excellent tour guide, provided plenty of time, information on the highlights of Washington DC. My family was visiting from Spain so it was very special for them to understand a good overview of our Nation's capital. The pickup and drop-off in Williamsburg was great since we were coming from Norfolk. Excellent day tour that saved us the fuss and frustrations of driving
Great day at in DC
Cheryl_S, Oct 2022
Excellent tour that I would recommend for anyone that wants to visit our capital. Matt was our tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and shared details that I never knew or probably would not have noticed if he didn’t point them out. He seemed to know exactly where we needed to be as well as the right time to be there to get the best views. He also had a great sense of humor that kept most everyone entertained. Thank you Matt for a most memorable day! Really appreciate it!
Great tour with plenty of walking up and down hills
JoC_C, Oct 2022
We really enjoyed the tour. Being picked up and driven around to home again was perfect. Our driver, Matt, had great knowledge to share. Was considerate of everyone on the bus and caring. It was a long day!! Wear comfortable shoes and dress and be prepared for any weather changes. You can bring a small bag with jackets, waters or water and leave on the bus until you need it. For those with mobility issues or some issues walking up and down hills, you may want to pass. Several "elders" were not able to keep up with the walking tour. I loved the changing of the guard ceremony. That was by far the best.
Great day trip!
Carol_C, Oct 2022
The coach bus was very nice and comfortable. Matt was an amazing tour guide! He is very knowledgeable and makes learning history fun! His annunciation is on point as well. It is a full fast-paced tour but very worth it.

The trip was wonderful, a real bargain, we saw more than we thought we could see in one day. John our tour guide was 5 star. The only the only thing that could have made it better would be a stop at The Jefferson Memorial
Exceeds Expectations
Mark_M, Sept 2022
For your first time in Wash DC, there are many obvious sites you'd want to see - the Washington Monument, the Jefferson Memorial, the Capitol, the White House, etc. We saw all these and many more. Arlington Cemetery with the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers and the changing of the Guard was very impressive but we also saw JFK's grave with the Eternal Flame and the graves of Joe Louis and Ruth Bader Ginsberg. The Iwo Jima Memorial was also a bonus. Matt is the driver and tour guide and is extremely knowledgeable about the history of each site. Very worthwhile tour.

We got to see everything promised and so much more. Matt was fantastic at making sure we had the best experience ever - to getting us to the right place in time to see changing of the guard to all of the monuments and memorials, his commentary made this trip one we won’t forget. Wonderful for kids as well!
Donna_C, Aug 2022
What an amazing trip!! Can’t say enough about our guide Matt. He was amazing and very knowledgeable about the history. Also the little tidbits of information he knew made it more interesting. This was absolutely the best way to see Washington and get all the details! Well with the money! Thank you.

Seeing the change of the guard at the unknown soldier was very moving. All in all it was a great learning trip.
So much better than trying to DIY Tour
Kevin_R, July 2022
Matt was fantastic. There is no way that our family could have done all this on our own. We were able to see all the most important sites and learned a lot from Matt along the way. Cannot say enough good things!
