Great tour, comfortable bus, excellent tour guide Mayan and driver. Long ride to DC from NYC, but we stopped at a nice place in Delaware coming and going where we were able to stretch and get some food. The tour was well-organized and hit all the highlights we were expecting to visit. It's a lot to do in one day, but we never felt rushed, and we felt that we had enough time at each monument for pictures and to take in the fact that we were, indeed, in our nation's capital!!! Mayan did a great job of providing a lot of historic information and kept the tour interesting, even during the road trip when there wasn't a lot to see. One suggestion - even though Madame Tussaud's was interesting, we would have preferred to spend more time at the Smithsonian instead. That was the only place that needed a longer look. If you only have one day to visit Washington, we highly recommend this trip.
The weather was perfect for a day trip! Our guide Richard was very informative and we got to see all of the important sights. We even had a little spare time to drive by the Pentagon. I would recommend taking this tour to everybody who wants something extra for their holiday in NYC.
A fantastic day out! We saw everything we wanted to in Washington with plenty of time for pictures and absorbing the atmosphere. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave just the right amount of information. Well worth taking a day out of NYC to do this trip! Would highly recommend.
The tour was a fabulous experience with an informative tour guide. Managed to see all the major landmarks in Washington in a day! Highly recommend this company and the Washington tour.
I was so happy with the service provided with our tour guide. Not only her but with our two bus drivers. They really did think about our safety, in regards to getting there and coming back. Our tour guide Victoria was so nice, even when I got lost and she personally went to help me find my way back to the bus. I really appreciated it. Will recommend this tour to others.
This trip was the best. Going to the capital was amazing even more amazing going for my birthday week. Our tour guide Victoria was very nice and informative, I learned a lot that day. I will recommend this tour to others.
Would do this tour again. A long day but very enjoyable. According to my 12 year old son this was the highlight of the holiday.
Well organized trip with stops at the major attractions in Washington DC. Tour guides were thoughtful and explained to us the history of the sights whilst we were on the bus so we had more time to explore the sights ourselves when we actually arrived.
The bus ride was very comfortable, clean and prompt. We were shown a movie on the way back to break up the long journey.
The tour was great! My group got to see all the sites including The White House, The Capital, Lincoln memorial, etc. Our tour guide was informative and it was a great day! Highly recommended.
This tour was definitely worth it. We got to see all the major spots of Washington in the short time that we had. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and very entertaining.
Excellent trip well organised from start to finish.A very comfortable bus and the guide Eddie was excellent giving a good commentary on the sites visited. A long and busy day but well worth it.
Excellent trip with great guide. Heavy snow night before, but trip still went ahead. Only criticism was wasting time at Madame Tussauds and Museum of Air and Space, with only MacDonald's available as lunch option. I'd have preferred a couple of hours to wonder round Washington and would have liked to stop at theatre where Lincoln was assassinated rather than quick drive-by. But overall a great trip for the price, and would go again.
Washington was great it was a long day but well worth it the tour guide was well informed and very helpful would recommend this tour to anyone thinking about travelling to the east coast of the USA and wanting to see as much as they can.
Mayan was a very knowledgeable guide she gave us a good insight into American history without it being boring. We got to see all the major sights of Washington.
Very good trip, especially the tour guided provided info not only the history but also the economies and the social sides of the places visited and passed by places..
Very nice trip, have seen all the important places that we wanted. Only travelling by coach all day can be exhausting.
This was an excellent tour even though it was a long day, the tour guide made the long bus ride very bearable. Washington DC is beautiful, and although we went on a day where the weather was not favourable, the tour guide was quick on his feet in taking us over to Virginia to drive pass the Pentagon to give us a few more minutes to let the rain subside. It didn't subside completely but did lighten. The Lincoln Memorial is something that I have wanted to sight for a very long time, and it absolutely did not disappoint along with the Washington Monument in all its glory. It is truly a beautiful city and a unique part of the United States. I high recommend taking an entire day out of your visit to NYC and doing this tour. It truly is an amazing part of the United States to see. You will absolutely not be disappointed no matter the weather.
Excellent bus and excellent guide and driver. I had a good overview of Washington , DC. Thanks,. Alicia verduzco
Great tour if you have limited time to explore Washington. Had ample time at each stop for photos and guide also made time for a stop at the souvenir shop as many of us have requested for it. Highly recommended.
