5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

We really appreciate this tour. Our guide, Maya, she knew a lot and was interesting to listen to. Even the two teenager 18 yrs thought it was a good trip.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

comfortable bus ride
stops at the right places
due to some extra time, we were also taken to see the pentagon though only from the bus so we could tick another spot on our to see list.
only one thing... the itinerary was not clear before the trip so we had no idea we were going to see the madamme tussauds museum and the air and space museum which we had already covered in new york .
the guides were well versed and we were lucky to have 2 guides english speaking and hebrew speaking so got to hear them both in our trip.

excellent tour,

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

The road trip there and back was a little long but the guide was extremely informative and kept us informed about every sight and monument. There was enough time at each place but would have liked to have done the Jefferson Memorial instead of say the Air and Space Museum where there was a fair bit of time. All in all a fantastic day - loved Washington DC.
