Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

Our family really enjoyed our tour with Brian-he was an excellent guide. Brian worked to customize the tour to our liking providing us more time in some spots and less in others. He shared his extensive knowledge of the DC area and we would highly recommend taking this tour.

Great guide and transport- the cart was open at the side so we could get all the atmosphere and best photos. It was so easy to get in and out.

Perfect overview for our short trip to DC. Great guide. Very knowledgeable. Accommodated my wheelchair bound 89 year old mom with dignity and grace.

George, our guide, really made the tour amazing. He took historical facts, and then put a story together about how each of the monuments or buildings came to be. I still remember most of what he said because it was soooo entertaining. BEST BUY FOR THE MONEY.

This tour was amazing!

Amy was fantastic - knowledgeable and personable. There were 5 of us so we had the cart to ourselves. It's a great way to see the sights in a 2 hour period. The tour lets you out for 15 minutes at the Martin Luther King memorial and again for another 15 minutes at the Lincoln Memorial. Both are worth the visit. I highly recommend this tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Loved the vehicle this tour uses - certainly limits the size of the group, but more than that, you feel so much closer to the action! Tour guide was super - we would have stayed with her and that little vehicle all day if we could have!
