This was a great way to see most of the DC sights in a short period of time. Our tour guides were nice and informative. There are many times where you are dropped off at a location and told when/where to meet the bus for pickup, so if you are extremely geographically challenged, this is a heads-up. Also, wear comfy walking shoes, even though it's a bus tour, you'll do a ton of walking! Overall a great experience!
Excellent drivers on both days who were very knowledgeable and who made both trips very interesting.
This was an excellent tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining and we were able to see many of the key Washington landmarks in just two days.
enjoyed the tour. very informative. pleasant experience overall..
the check-in was easy and efficient. Buses very comfortable. Loved what was packed into the 2 days - see a little of everything. This is definitely the best way to visit Washington DC. Day 1 Bus Driver great. He used a headset for speaking and very easy to understanding. Extremely knowledgeable. Day 2 Bus Driver also very good. A little unnerving that he was using an actual microphone in one hand, while driving around the very busy city with the other. Suggest all bus drivers use headsets. Would highly recommend.
Great way to get a taste of the city. The guide was great, friendly, informative and fun. Thanks for the great trip - best of all we didn't waste time getting lost if we had been driving.
THIS TOUR WAS FANTASIC. It was very busy but you went to every major site in Washington. If you have a chance to do this tour I would do it. Had a great time learning about the history of Washington DC.
Saw all that was advertised. Bus driver had knowledge of all the sites. It was the best way to tour DC
The 2 day tour was great. Both days we had drivers who were very knowledgeable. We were able to see many sights. We would take other tours with Viator.
The guide who did the DC part of the tour had been doing this for 30 years. Could not believe someone could have such a detailed knowledge from memory. The other guide was great too. Truly a full 2 days, 7AM-6PM pickup to hotel return.
It was certainly nice to leave the driving to someone else as well as the timing. Certain things like the tour of the capitol and the changing of the guard at Arlington Cemetery require knowledge of when to go. These guys know the ropes.
The 2-Day Grand Tour covered every main monument or sightseeing interest in Washington DC. I would highly recommend this tour because of it's great value. Worth every penny!
Viator made our trip fabulous. The bus was air conditioned and extremely comfortable. Our tour guides were fantastic! They were so knowledgeable and humorous. We had a fabulous time and would definitely use Viator again!
Perfect way to squeeze a lot from a short time in Washington DC. We did the 'Interior of Public Buildings' tour on our second day, really enjoyed the White House center and Ford's Theatre, American History Museum and the US Capitol building. Then on our last day we did Mount Vernon and the Vietnam memorial. It was a lot to cover, but really glad we had a guide and some guidance about what to tackle. Made it easy, saw all that we wanted to, took many many photos, can definitely recommend this for when you travel to DC.
Excellent well informed drivers, great views at the right pace.
This is the best way to see the sights. The trip to Mount Vernon was wonderful, although you don't get a lot of time at the monuments to really explore them.

The tour was fantastic and covered pretty much everything. I enjoyed visiting the Capitol Building, Mount Vernon, the World War II Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial and the National Air and Space Museum. I really enjoyed the tour.

The driver for our first day of the tour was very informative and a great, fun person to be with for the day. On the second day, there was a bomb scare in the Capitol Building, and that put us behind. I know it frustrated our driver. Some of the tourists came out the wrong door at the Capitol and were not at the appointed place and were left behind. I know that it was not the driver's fault, but it was hard on those of us who went on. We all could tell that the driver was very irritated, as he told us about the city his very matter-of-fact way. I learned a lot from both drivers, and we are very happy we took a tour. On the second day, I felt like we were at a horse race. We thought we would stop for lunch as we did the first day, but when we went to the Air and Space Museum, we were given one hour and had to get a bite to eat, so we had to rush through. We had really wanted to go to the National Archives, but the line was long; we were taken to the Natural History Museum, which wasn't on the list so we had gone there the day before. We missed the National Archives altogether.
We had a great time, wish there was more time at each spot. Great bus drivers.
