Albeit our tour starting early......Had to be at meeting point at 6.30 am for bus leaving at 7.00 am, would thoroughly recommend this tour.
Our guide Jutta, was a hive of knowledge of USA, in particular, dates, famous names and places.
She was superb, speaking English and German.
Our day, unfortunately had some rain, but that didn't dampen our tour.
Korean War Memorial, Vietnam War Memorial, made even more poignant by being the day before Veterans Day. We saw some Veterans laying wreaths in memory of those lost.
Lincoln Memorial, Washington Memorial, White House, Madame Tussauds, where my daughter enjoyed dressing up in different outfits and ending with the Smithsonian Institute, Space Travel.
Well worth visiting. Great guide. An asset to the company.
Perfect! It was great that Arlington Cemetery was added to the program.
We really enjoyed the trip to Washington... Guide was great! We visited the Whitehouse and then got photos taken with ex presidents in Madam Tussauds which was great... the Monuments were beautiful and the trip to the Air Space museum was very good.... Washington is full of museums and would be worth spending several days there but we were glad to see what we did in one day.... worth doing
Excellent trip with great tour leader and very good drivers and coach. Highly recommended.
Best ever. We saw so much, guide went out of his way to make it an enjoyable and the drivers were fantastic. well worth every dollar we paid thank you for a great trip
Excellent tour. The tour guide was very friendly and the tour included all the major attractions of Washington DC. I would recommend this tour.
We joined this one-day Washington DC trip as we had only got six days in NYC but would still like to visit the US Capital, partly to add something educational for the kids in this summer trip and partly to achieve the goal in our travel book. Time control and tour plan of this trip is excellent. We started at 7am, boarding the bus near Times Square. As our hotel was nearby and there's a long coach trip to rest, an early start of the day is just fine. The staff were very helpful to lead us to the coach. The tour guide lady is a very professional and knowledgeable one, telling us the right amount of history and politics in the US whilst giving us a pleasant introduction of the places along the trip. There were reasonably enough photo time after a brief yet comprehensive introduction of the memorials and places at each of the stops. Casual meals were taken along the trip, but that's not a key part of this short day trip. We made seven stops at the Capital finally and departed DC at around 4:30pm. Arrived at NYC nearly 9pm, a little bit later than expected due to a car accident and traffic jam along the highway. This one-day trip is highly recommended if you can't afford much time to visit the DC. Certainly it would be better if there are 2 to 3 days to spend in the Capital, but well, somehow we've got the maximum fun within our constraints. My family enjoyed this trip very much. Special thanks to the professional tour guide lady too!!
Guide made the long day tour manageable and ensured we had adequate time at each stop.
This tour was perfect for us because we wanted to see the highlights of Washington but only had a day spare to do it. We saw everything we wanted to for a quick look and photo op but really that's all it is. This is not the tour for you if you want to take everything in and explore. But it definitely met our needs and we had a great time.
The trip was really nice experience. It was very good organised. The guide was well-informed, kind and spoke clearly and intelligible.
A great day out, 4 hours each way to Washington by bus. Could spend several days in Washington to see the museums. The guide was excellent.
Excellent day out. Guide was very informative and ensured that everyone was aware of the deadlines at the different stops. Would recommend this trip if you just want to see the major tourist attractions in Washington.
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.
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.
A big day from New York, chock full of interest, with outstanding drivers and guides.
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.
The trip was very good, very well narrated and visited the major monuments on the city.
The tour was fantastic. The tour guide was very informative. It was well organised. It's a long day but we'll worth it.
Great trip! Awesome way to see the DC when you only have a day spare
This your was great. A relaxing and stress free way to see Washington. The guide was excellent and very informative.
