This tour was a very important highlight during our first visit to Washington DC. Leroy was our driver/tour guide and he could not have done more or better. He is well informed about Arlington and the other points of interest we visited and showed great concern for the tour participants' comfort, safety and overall satisfaction. What a terrific ambassador for this wonderful city! We are taking home with us some wonderful memories and give this tour a grade of A++.
Excellent. Learned a lot about each of the memorials. Very informative. Also emotionally moving to how much so many did for our country.
Great, but please wash the windows to take photos out of them. lol
Really interesting. We booked because we prefer to go by ourselves and the tour is really well organized and allows everyone to go at its own step without losing anithing
Excellent tour....... We ended up with a private tour. Just the seven of us.
Mount Vernon was very good (even in the pouring rain). Very interesting. We did not stop in Old Town Alexandria because it was a Sunday and the church we were suppose to see is not open to the public on Sundays.
We had an awesome experience with this tour group. My boyfriend and I took this night tour after having seen everything in the day time and it was such a contrast to seeing it at night as well. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and courteous. He shared stories at each site that were quite intersting and fun to have been made aware of. Our bus driver was very careful and made sure to tell as all each time to "watch our step" as we would get off at each memorial/landmark. The bus was warm and comfortable. The tour is done so well you don't even realise the time has passed. Overall, two thumbs up! Thank you! JR
I was hesitant to book a tour because I didn’t want to be rushed along with a crowd. Our guide Ben was absolutely incredible. He was knowledgeable and witty- thoroughly entertaining without being obtrusive. His mastery of the subject matter of the city- history, politics, architecture, made the trip worthwhile. All the little details you would otherwise miss were pointed out and expalined, which made it all the more interesting and meaningful. I wasn’t prepared for such an outstanding time. Our small group quickly bonded and Ben made it an experience we will never forget. If you only have a day to see the city, this is the only way to do it.
There were six people on the evening tour my husband and I took on 10/25/13. This small tour was a great way to take in the major monuments spread all over the city, in a three hour time span. The bus dropped us off and Sam, our tour guide, gave us 15 minutes to explore each site. Sam was knowledgeable and answered all questions effectively. Water was available, as well. Be prepared for some walking, but nothing strenuous, and you can choose to climb monument steps, or not, and not get separated from your tour. Seeing the monuments at night allows you to focus on their grandeur in a way that isn't possible in daylight. Well worth the price for the small group vs. large bus tour.
Really very good trip very nice as it was a small group very informative and good value
Excellent tour. Picked up on time and tour guide Peter very knowledgeable and informative. Did his best to see places of interest, even though most shut down because of government strike. Disappointed that no compensation made for cancellation of Potomac river cruise.
Excellent tour guide
On a short visit to DC so wanted to see as much as possible. Six hour trip was ideal for this with Grace guiding us thru the sites and history of each abetted by Ben. Interesting and enjoyable day seeing and learning things which we could not have done otherwise. Saw much of the city we would have missed. The day was complete when they arranged for the Presidential motorcade to leave the White House while we were there. Guides with that influence - Awesome.
Great overview of the city with interesting insights into the significance of architectural features. Bring a jacket for the river cruise portion during the fall. Highly recommend!
