5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

I had a terrific time. The driver was very personable and did his research thoroughly, presenting the widely-known facts. But he was also a treasure trove of all that information you never read in the guidebooks. And he presented it in a very entertaining manner. I would not want to take him on in a game of Trivial Pursuit. I would recommend this tour highly for anyone seeking a trip through Washington in a small group (the cart seats five plus the driver). The tour is also much more relaxed than the buses because the cart is marked as a slow-moving vehicle, which allows riders to view the sites without being rushed. The tour ended far too quickly because the driver left me wanting more. When I return to Washington, I'm booking this tour again -- it was that much fun!!

I loved it. The tour started on time and our tour guide was extemely knowledgeable about the history of DC. We had a chance to stop and take pictures walk up the steps to the Lincoln Memorial and walk and take pictures of the MLK memorial. I loved the open air and the weather made it perfect. Yes, I would highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting DC. Because you are only with a few other people it was very intimate and our guide had no problem asnwering questions.
