    We took this tour because it included a visit of the US Capitol and it was a big disappointment. We visited only 2 rooms, the Rotunda and the National Statuary Hall. The cost of the same tour without US Capitol was $35 chipper. Visiting two rooms for this price is too expensive. The second part of this tour was very interesting. Edgar, our guide, was just excellent and we had a great time.

    Informational

    This was a fun and informational tour for all ages. Our teenage boys enjoyed it as much as we adults did! A great way to see the sites with less walking. I only wish the tour of the capital building would have had a bit more time for gift shops

    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.
