Washington tour guide was excellent, a lot to cover for short time

from the meeting place-very busy but quite safe, double checked for tickets but not ID. The bus- clean and ok for comfort, got toilet but not enough support to be left clean by customer- a bit unsanitary. Excellent and safe drivers, respect everyone as adult. Bi-lingual tour guide is excellent, except some people just don't get it. So sometimes we lost time by waiting on them. Short but informative visit to the center with 10 minute video. Lots and lots of walking, sometimes very unforgiving to older generations, specially on a hot and humid day. No options to eat at chinatown, wherein, food is a little cheaper and interesting. No megaphone for everyone to hear what instruction was being given, so sometimes the older generations makes mistake by not being on time. Only a black open umbrella was used as a point or mark to head back to the bus or where the guide will be at a certain time. Bill, a veteran, our tour guide was excellent- historically more believable than the statue/building

Good tour once the bus fiasco was figured out

Our tour guide was amazing. Very knowledgeable. Loading the bus was a bit of a fiasco. We met at the meeting point, boarded the coach bus with nice plush seats, and phone chargers. Only to be told at 7:05pm (when your was supposed to begin at 7) that we were switching to an open top bus tour with a limited number of seats that are covered below. The tour advertised “glass rooftop” tour. Not open bus. It was a chilly night. Although dry, we hit bushes that were soaked with rain and slapped is in the face. Also, the experience promised a 3.5 hr tour and it was just shy of 3. I would take it again, but should be noted if it’s an open top Bus as several people were unprepared for the wet and cold open top Bus.

Tours well organized, more time for breakfast needed

The tours are well organized, considering the distances overall from NY to Niagara Fals. The timing has been well respected. Only negative thing as the tours start very early in the morning should be must previewed a break during the trips for breakfast as has been managed for dinner. Everything else has been well managed, it’s a pity you don’t have this tour with italian guide but we understood the guide thanks to spanish and english meantime version.

Great tour, needed a bit more time at some of the monuments

Charlie was a great guide, The bus were great, clean and comfortable. the tour was well organized, and perfect for a family with smaller children or anyone who can't walk all across the Mall. I could have used a bit more time at two stops in particular, we had to hurry through the FDR monument in order to see the Martin Luther King Jr. Monument. Then at the Lincoln, Vietnam, and Korea monument stop there is time to see two of the three, not all three.

Can’t think of a better to tour the monuments.

The Segway is a fun and entertaining way to get around. The guide was a nice guy and I thought he kept the stories fun and insightful when we stopped. Overall, we had a great time and 100% worth the money.
