What people are saying about Washington, DC

Overall tour was decent and our guide was good.

we arrived at 8:15 as directed. Your ad makes you think you get to skip all the lines but that's not the case so you should say so. We waited over an hour to get into the Visitors center. Then we waited another 90 minutes for your staff to get our tickets. We were told there was a processing issue at the Capitol and that our tickets would be forthcoming. After an hour wait, our guide started to show us some of the displays in the Visitors area and then our tickets became available. We were only able to see two rooms in the Capitol. It was not as extensive or in depth as your Tour ads make them appear to be. Our guide, Nick, did a great job managing the group and delays we experienced. Boat Tour/Lunch was ok. Bus tour of the monuments was ok. A little rushed but still good. dropped us off at the Archives which is where the tour ended.

Great way to see all the major monuments/Memorials

It was a very humid hot day, but our slow d the pace and gave plenty of options to rest. The tour was informative. The only drawback was having to wait so long for lunch. You go to a restaurant, stand around to order Then get back on bus to get to cruise departure. This was a waste of time. There is an option to preorder you food online, which we did, but it made no difference. Still had to get through all the motions. Other than is “glitch” the tour was great. Enjoyed spending the day with Nick

Best way to see the best of DC in 8 hours!

This tour was well worth the money! Our tour guide, Chris, was very knowledgeable about DC and American history and made the tour a fun experience. Be prepared to do a lot of walking and stair climbing, but SO worth it! The lunch was excellent and the boat ride on the Potomac was a real treat. Highly recommend this tour.

Thorough, long day, moved us along at a steady pace.

We had Christopher as our guide. He spoke fast and moved us along quickly. He was pleasant, answered our questions. Little time on the bus; much more walking than I anticipated. Boat ride on the Potomac was short and nothing special; I would have skipped it. Ok boxed lunch. We saw quite a lot in one day.

This was a wonderful tour and I recommend it for all 1st time visitors

This was a great tour. The bus was very comfortable and we were able to see the sights we wanted to see. Having never been to DC, I highly recommend this tour as a starting point for first time visitors. Janna, our tour guide, was amazing. She was kind, friendly and very knowledgeable.
