    This experience was very informative. The guide shared alot of interesting tidbits that brought history to light in a fun and memorable way. Male sure you were comfortable shoes. There was alot of walking involved, despite the fact that we took a bus. I wish we had been able to vist the Washington Monumemt, the pentagon and Arlington cemetery. Also, we were not able to see some buildings close up.

    If you're looking for a whole D.C. sightseeing tour this is the one! Our guide was intelligent, pleasant, caring and very sweet. She knew her stuff, and her love for the city showed. I am hoping to get to go back sometime in the fall to see what it looks like then!

    Everything was well coordinated, from reserving online to checking in at the meetup location. Alisha (our tour guide) and Rat (our driver) we’re excellent in their customer service. The only thing I would suggest (during summer tours) that they try to keep the bottles of water in a cooler and not give customers hot bottles of water.
