Awesome tour 4/14, Stephano and Marco (that may be the wrong name but he spoke three languages English, spanish and French ), Cherry Blossoms caused a bit of a traffic issue but the guides made the most of it. They were very knowlegable, informative and highly responsible. Loved to see my Cherry Blossoms and all the other sites. Would definitely tour with them again.

Awesome experience. The guides were excellent and kept us informed about the history of US, not to mention about their entertainment aspects. The drive was too good with butiful scenic landscapes. Covered almost entire of DC - madame tussades, monuments, capitol, white house etc etc.You just need to be disciplined enuf to keep up with the time of return during each stops and breaks. During my 2 Weeks US exploration this Washington Tour by bus was the by far the most memorable and exciting one. Highly satisfied and most recommendable. Thank You Viator for the tour and the deal!!

A bit too superficial : the bus was full with 50 people. The trip last 3 hours one way, so plenty of time to provide useful information about Washington and other facts and figures about the US history. Unfortunately, the guide really did the minimum.
Memorial for Korea and Vietnam : ok, with nice view from the Lincoln memorial
Capitol : only from the back and not going inside. A bit frustrating.
White House : ok, only from the front
Mrs Tussaud : ok, but too limited time to really learn about all the presidents. This visit should last a bit more.
Air and Space museum : useless, unless you have a specific interest in this area. Not really related with Washington.

Fantastic tour , early start but stopped for breakfast on the way tour guide extremely good . Very knowledgable and kept a steady stream of info coming forth without inundating you . Its a long day but so worth it to see all the monuments and get a bite size taste of Washington . I loved it

Excellent tour and tour company! We had a fantastic day and tour covered off on all the important sites. Very long day but bus had wi-fi and lots of restroom stops. For those who don't have the time for a stop over in DC highly recommend.

it was excellent! for a day!!! really covering more important places of DC. My group was very responsible in the sense of staying together and going back on time to the bus., that allows the guides to keep their program on time.
as for the tour guides, they were excellent, friendly and very informative

A viagem de ônibus NY-W (4h30 ida e 4h30 volta) é cansativa. As pouco mais de 4h de city tour por W são um tanto corridas, com direito a loja exclusiva de souveniers; para aqueles que apenas querem conhecer muito rapidamente esse símbolo do poder americano. Como acho que não volto mais a W, valeu a experiência. A guia Fernanda, brasileira, é gentil e atenciosa.

Worth doing, in so far as you see the main sights, albeit in rushed fashion....but the journey is quite long (c.4 hours each way) with not a huge amount of time in DC. Plus, the guides werent overly informative or friendly - and we were very pushy for tips at the end, leaving sour taste ....That said, if you've day to spare in NYC and want to see Lincoln Memorial, Madam Tussauds, White House, Space Museum and Congress, then go for it...
