Washington D.C., District of Columbia
We were a party of 8, with one senior, 5 adults, and two children. Our senior member needed a wheel chair. We had a folding one which we were told not to bring, so we didn’t, but this created a lot of problems for us.
The bus tour was very well conducted, the lunch was good, and the cruise on the Potomac was fun. However, we were not happy about when the bus was made available, for three reasons.
1. Our senior member could not walk up the steps of the US Capitol building. She was exhausted climbing up the steps and walking the Capitol tour. She was willing to sit out the tour, on the bus, but the bus was not available until after the Capitol tour.
2. We were forced to throw out all our food before we entered the US Capitol. Our sunscreen spray was thrashed as well. We were aware that food of any sort, and aerosol sprays, are not allowed inside the building, but we were under the impression that we could keep these items on the bus during the Capitol tour.
3. Our senior member had some dietary restrictions and it would have helped if we had been able to keep our food on the bus before the tour.
I suggest that the bus be made available before the Capitol tour.

Great experience! We loved it. We highly recommend getting the "Skip the Line Pass".
