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.
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!
Great guide. She delivered the information well without talking too fast or too much
Brian was a great tour guide! Fabulous for my mobility-limited mother to see a lot of sights in a short time
The tour was excellent and was especially good to cover a lot of ground in a short time Our kids got to see many different sites and appreciated not having to walk long distances. It was a great way to get up and close and right up to sites.

Our guide, Brian was great. We spent 2.5 hours learning alot.thanks so much from Tom, Barbara, Preston and Jackson.
Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and interesting. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour.
Amy kept me interested even though I have been in DC many times. I would do this again!
Very knowledgeable tour guides and a great way to view the National Mall. This was great to get a general overview of the mall area without all the walking. We were able to take lots of pictures from the carts and had the opportunity to get out at both the MLK and Lincoln memorials to walk around and explore. Would definitely recommend!
The 2 hour tour was perfect due to our limited tome available. The guide really knew his history and presented it very well.
Very comfortable car. Wonderful driver/tour guide. We learned a lot of Washington history! Very interesting.
We arrived early, but did not have to wait long. The guide was very knowledgeable and the cart was Great as it was a warm day. We saw everything I wanted to see and more. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Washington.
amy was a superb guide everything explained in a careful and exciting way. time to take photos and altogether a highly recommend experience.
Very Pleased with Amy our tour guide. She knew the city and was fun to be with
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.
Only way to go. Being mobility impaired, this tour was perfect. Very informative and not too much walking. We enjoyed it very much. Highly recommend it.
Best tour I booked on trip. Geroge was very lovely, welcoming and knowledgeable. I enjoyed the personalized service. Went to the monuments, loved taking pictures and the insider info George had to offer. Highly recommend.
This was a fun way to get a good idea of where all the major sites were. Kate was an awesome tour guide with a great knowledge of the city and a very fun friendly demeanor. She made sure that we had time to get out and walk around certain monuments with no rush. She offered to take a group photo and was really enthusiastic about her job and the city. The car was fun and the breeze felt good on a very hot day. Everyone had a great time.
Really great trip! Probably the best we experienced while in DC! It was really nice to travel in an open car in the hot weather. Katie knew lots about the history of Washington, took photos of us at the monuments and let us decideret the pace of the trip. Can highly recommend this trip!
We were treated like V.I.P.s. We saw and learned more than I ever thought. Even my 12 year old stated the tour via the electric cart was.."awesome!"
This is without question a great way to see the major monuments in DC. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour guide, Kate, who was bubbling over with knowledge about Washington and enthusiasm for her job. It is fun to ride around town in the open-air electric cars. We felt the cost was very fair for what we received -- they even provided cold bottled water. And it sure saves lots of walking. The only thing to be aware of is that this tour does not stop at either the WWII Memorial (no parking available) or the US Capitol (a time ticket is required for a separate tour).
