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).
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Our tour guide whose name I have forgotten was so knowledgable about the area and took us everywhere we 3 an Ted to go.
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.
