Fantastic tour , early start but stopped for breakfast on the way tour guide extremely good . Very knowledgable and kept a steady stream of info coming forth without inundating you . Its a long day but so worth it to see all the monuments and get a bite size taste of Washington . I loved it
Fantastic tour , one of the best highlights of my trip to New York . It's well worth it honestly . Travelling through New Jersey , Delaware and Maryland you really see some awesome scenery and learn a lot of history from the tour guide . You may also get to see the pentagon which is in Virginia. Washington, D.C. Is a fantastic place and you will learn and see a lot from the knowledgeable tour guides.
It was a long but very interesting day, lots to see and very informative tour guide. Great day a must see.
An excellent tour with a very knowledgeable guide. Well worth the drive
The tour guide was fantastic. She was lively and informative. Despite the long journey, her info throughout made it seem much less. We stopped at a gift shop which was a waste of time but that really is my only complaint. This trip combines a lot of Washington in one day and is very well organised.
A long day - Over eight hours on the bus there and back ,but despite this a well worthwhile tour -Would definitely recommend it.
This was a fantastic tour. Highly recommended. Got to see the landmarks with a tour operator. Great day
I love this tour to understand the American History.
To see DC in one day is a feat, tour guide was knowledgeable and bilingual too. Always on time to depart.
Amazing city, although not enough time for everything. Madame Tussaud's can be excluded, because these type of museums, there are everywhere.
absolutely fantastic day out - Very good trip and got plenty of time in the historical Washington!
Quite a long day but well worth it. Our guide, Stephano, was great. Kept us informed in an interesting way, with a bit of US history which was well worth hearing for us, non Americans. Bus was good and enough time at each of the stops for a good wander about. Highly recommended.
Great Guide, great bus drivers, highly informative and highly recomended
Great day out. We had the best tour guide Ben was able to answer all our questions and I highly recommend this tour.
A great day! Very long but that was to be expected. A bit chaotic boarding the bus, need more organisation checking tickets etc. Our guide was very bright, good and knowledgeable. We had a rest stop in a large well serviced centre about 2 hours into the journey both ways. Toilet on bus. Saw the main Washington sights. Would have liked to go to Arlington Cemetery. Souvenir shop was a poor choice, not much there and being renovated so was a mess. Would recommend to others.
Long day but well worth it. Seen everything that appealed to us within that day!
Long day but well worth it to see the main sights of Washington DC. Bus was comfortable and had WiFi, tour guides were knowledgeable and friendly.
The tour was well organised and the tour guide was excellent. It was great day out.
10/11/2013 have just returned from 6 days in new York and we spent one day out of the city and went to Washington DC for the day. this trip was amazing from state to finish. we started very early to make sure we got there with enough time to see everything. the guide was with us all day and showed us all the main points, the white house, capital hill, and we even had trips to a museum. we were going to make our own way to here on the train but we would never have seen all we had. the linclon memorial was amazing. this day trip was the best and worth every penny thank you
Good value for money, covering a lot of kilometres and places of interest.
A very long day, not arriving back in NY until after 9pm.
If you are pressed for time then you can't go past this day tour. A great lesson in American history, and our guide Stefano was the best.
Excellent guide and drivers. For value for money this is a great trip, all be it a very long day.
Very enjoyable tour. Full praise to the two drivers. Tour guide was very informative and woken an interest in me to study american history. Trip to Arlington was a delightful surprise due to a change in the schedule caused by the government shut down. Although the tour guide was doing her job in getting us in to see the Vietnam Wall, I felt the argument she had with the park ranger was uncalled for. The lady, like the tour guide, was only going her job. Otherwise a brilliant tour. Well worth the long journey. Playing New York New York as the New York view came into view as priceless.
