Loved every moment of it
Highlights of DC Included- Lincoln memorial, Vietnam and Korean Memorial- White house photo op- Air/space musuem and capital hill. Bus comfortable- good because it was a loong day. Almost 14 hours. Only criticism- lunch is at musuem at 3pm and if you dont like Mcdonalds good luck to you.
Excellent Tour - worth the drive. We will want to spend more time there in the future. Tour guide friendly and knowledgable - bus drivers were not very friendly!
A long day but well worth it and very informative.
Very comprehensive and enjoyable trip
More than I expected and enjoyed the opportunity to get out and experience the sites
The staff where great specially Marry she was great guide I recommend everyone to ask about Marry.
The trip was brilliant as we were able to cover all the places in Washington. The only issues that we had with the trip were:
1. Had problems understanding the guide on board the Bus
2. The Bus trip was a little long and became very boring travelling down and returning as there was nothing to do.
Had a Great Time in Washington the Lincoln Memeorial, Washington Monument and the War Memorials were moving and the white House, madame Tuassad,s and the Space and Aeroneutical Museum were Fantastic.
Found dual commentaries annoying.
Trip home took an hour longer making it a long tiring day
Overall interesting and worth seeing
It was a great experience. We enjoyed the bus drive. The information by the tour guide was good. Washington - the highlight was the visit to the Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam Memorial and North Korean memorial. The visit to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum was very good, we loved to see the old war planes.
Bus was very late in arriving and even though we had a guide waiting with us he never told us anything about what was going on. Neither of the guides were very friendly. Tour was ok but not long enough at each place.
Tour was good, a lot of time spent on bus and a very long day but it's expected due to the distance travelled. Guide had good knowledge and gave commentary accordingly along the way. I'd refer to it as a snapshot, for anyone who wants to see a lot of the city would need more time and longer tour.
The tour of DC was great but the bus ride from New York to DC was just to long of a ride .The bus did stop at a food court in Delaware which was great.
The tour was approx 12 hours,in which you will spend 8 hours travelling in bus.That 4 hours in DC is very rush, I dont even have time for a postcard.Worst of all is the tour guide,who is not informative and busy smoking.He was supposed to walk with us but most of the time he is just disappeared.
