What people are saying about Smithsonian Air & Space Museum

The itinerary was good and the guide Okai was perfect. We left NYC close to 7 am and were back at 9pm. Though the 9 hour bus trip is a bit tiring but the impressions definitely got over it. The only thing Id like to improve is to have a bit more free time there explore the city.

Ales was super organized and the tour guide and bus driver are such great people. Thanks Brian for all the information and thanks Bosco for the charging cable We can fully recommend the tour it was a great day!
