Our tour guide Christopher was as entertaining as he was informative. He presented usually boring dates and faces in an engaging manor that kept your interest. We were able to see many landmarks that we being older would not have been able to walk. We are so glad we took this tour

Such a great value! A perfect way to see DC highlights. Chris was a fantastic guide. He grew up in DC and it’s clear he loves sharing his hometown with visitors. Lunch was very good. That was a surprise bonus.

Tour was very good. We visited all the major monuments in DC. Tour guide Alisha was very good. The tour guide was very conscientious of the group and made sure to point out restrooms and reminded us to stay hydrated as it was very hot. The stop at the National Archives was the best part.

The tour guide did a good job, and the tour ran smoothly except for a long delay waiting for our boxed lunches. The bus was clean and air-conditioned. We saw a lot, but it was very disappointing that we were unable to go into the Capitol Building (although not the tour company’s fault). Thank you.

Nick was awesome, we had my 10 yr old grandson who wouldn’t leave his side. Even though some of the places where closed he still made it knowledgeable and fun. Nick even got us to the museums before they closed them down due to the coronavirus. Kept us informed of all closures that we might see on future date.

The tour is great and Christopher, our guide, was very knowledgeable and funny.
But $135 per person for a guided tour, which in practice finished at 1am is too expensive. All museum entrances are free in Washington and it is not the $10 lunch voucher which justifies it. We knew that the cruise would not occur due to the season, but we took the precaution to phone and ask if there was an alternative activity. And the answer has been yes. Eventually, there wasn’t any.... that’s not correct.

Our experience was horrible. We were told to be in front of the Neptune statue across from the Capital Building at 8:00 a.m. and tour would start at 8:30 sharp. So we stood there in the freezing cold. Others were told 8:15, others at 8:30. We did not get on our bus until after the Capital tour, which was a great tour. At first, tour was good. We were given a voucher for lunch, let out at a food court, told we had about 30 minutes to locate our choice of where we wanted to eat, order, eat and be back on the bus. No food or drink allowed back on bus. At first our guide was good, he went with us and told us interesting things. We were an older group, that was not taken into account. We were rushed through everything. Lots of steps to everything and we were not told there was an elevator at every attraction. Towards the end of the tour, guide stayed on bus and we were told to be back on bus at a certain time. We had to walk to attractions, use restroom if we needed to, be back to bus. We were dropped off at Archives, told that was the end of tour, it was one and one half hour early. Our 8 hour tour was cut short, no explanation as to why. We were told by policeman that it was l long way back to where we started the tour. We did not know how to use bus system or Metro system. Where to change buses, how to get back to Orange Line. All the guide told us was the Green/Blue line was behind us. Then he left us, tired and lost in Washington.

This tour was very comprehensive. There was a lot of walking both indoors and outside but there were also many opportunities to rest and use rest rooms. We did ride in a very nice tour bus after visiting the Capital Building. We had 45 minutes to get lunch at L'Enfant Plaza food court which was adequate. It was convenient to have the bus drop us off and pick us up at each destination. Our guide, Christopher, had a very nice personality and was very knowledgeable about all the sights. We began the tour at 8:30 at the Capital Building and finished at about 2:30 near the Lincoln Memorial. We enjoyed the tour and feel it is a good value for the price.

This tour was wonderful and I am so glad my daughter-in-law and I took it. It was just a little too long and could do without the "cruise" on the Potomac, which was "so so". The center of government was just awesome seeing, and the war memorials beautiful but heartbreaking I finally got to see the Viet Nam mem. to see (and cry) for an old love. Nick, our guide was just so knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. He helped me find the name on the wall and was so sweet. I don't know how he did it but he didn't lose anyone (lol). Tony the driver also got us to our destinations on time and found us to go on to the next place. I definitely would sign up for Viator if and when I visit an area where I want to see everything important and have it all planned out for me.....transportation, guides, food, etc etc.
