The tour was outstanding. George (our guide) was very knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. Not boring at all! He gave as much or as little detail as we needed. He also let us get out and walk around certain monuments.
Overall, I can't imagine a better tour guide.
While we did not use the cart, due to our small group and inclement weather, this was a very good tour, our guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining, gave us free time to look and some of the sights. A lovely way to get a feel for Washington DC. Thumbs up.
Great way to see the monuments and learn interesting facts. Relaxing and interesting.
Because it was so cold our guide, George, brought a car instead of the electric cart for which we were very thankful. The trip was outstanding and george was exceptionally pleasant and very knowledgable about everything we saw. I give this tour my very highest ranking and will recommend it to my friends.
Absolutely FABULOUS and the tour guides George and John were so knowledgeable and gave us little-known information you could not get on one of those fast-moving big buses that did not appear to stop anywhere. We had a great time, they were so personable we thought we had known them for a long time, outside of being on the tour. John even laughed when I would point to other people getting a group tour and yell at them - "Look, tourists!" As if I wasn't a tourist also. Good times. If I had known there was a basket on the rear with nothing on it, I would have brought my walker to get closer to some monuments.
Also, why is Thomas Jefferson in black stone and MLKing in white stone? HaHa.
If I get to DC again I will most certainly take this tour again. The electric carts offered great viewing access and a personalized trip. I recommend it to anyone wanting to see most of DC in a timely manner.
This tour was excellent and our tour guide, George, was fantastic. The tour covered a lot of ground and it was nice to be able to hop off at certain monuments to get some closer pictures. I would recommend this tour to anyone going to D.C.!
I was only in DC for a short day trip and booked this tour on a whim for my mother, sisters, and I. Our guide was very easy going, well educated, and was up-to-date on all the current happenings in the city. The cart being smaller than the large busses gave us an advantage in being able to get closer to the monuments and maneuver through congestion. It was fun to cruise around the city feeling the fresh air and not have to be stuck in bus with a large group. I would defiantly recommend it.
It was a wonderful experience which was made possible by the Tour Guide. He was very knowledgeable and a little bit of personal information about all of the historical sites which made the tour very enjoyable. I am very glad that we selected this tour as my wife and I fully enjoyed the entire time on the tour.
This tour was awesome! Our guide, George has an appreciation for DC. He was knowledgeable, insightful and fun. He was quick to share his inside information on his city! He allowed us to get out of the cart and look at the monuments if we wanted to. I really enjoyed that he did not rush us through anything. If am lucky enough to return to DC I would absolutely would take this tour again and I would ask for George!
even with the goverment shutdown our guide made our trip interesting
fantastic way to see Washington and get close to the monuments. My family (four of us including two children of 11 and 8) were all delighted by this tour where we got to hear so much about what we were seeing, up close and from a delightful and thoroughly knowledgeable guide. I am still recommending this type of tours to my friends and family and will look out for this again. this tour was the highlight of our trip to Washington.
Even in the rain this tour was fun and different. The guides were exceptional and very knowledgeable about Washington and all the monuments. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants a quick, informative, and fascinating tour of the nation's capitol.
Excellent tour. The electric cart is comfortable and silent. George, our guide, was very interesting. We had a short time in DC and this tour was the perfect compromise : many major sites viewed in 2 hours. I have no hesitation to recommend this tour, bearing in mind that the quality of the guide (and driving skills) is of great importance.
I have a 13 year old and a 16 year old who thought it was fun. Great tour guides also!
The electric cart added a very different and dynamic approach to touring DC monuments. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and gave us sufficient time to explore monuments ourselves and take photos. I am very keen to do this tour again if I have an opportunity to return to DC.
