Our tour guide, Robert, was amazingly wonderful! We saw so very much and gained a lot of our knowledge to begin the tour of D.C. from him!! He went above and beyond to make it a great experience and we enjoyed all of it. Thanks Robert! (Keep him-he deserves a raise)

Definitely the best thing I did in Washington. My tour guide was brilliant. I was the only person on this tour which made it amazing. You see all the important monuments and have as much time as you need to take everything in. I would highly recommend this tour. It covers all the bases.

When I got there I just found out I was the only person who signed up for Friday afternoon tour. Even so the guide still did his job professionally and treated me like a queen lol. The trip was fun and I had a great time.

Jamie, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and personable. It was only two of us on the tour which allowed much flexibility and fine-tuning what locations were of special interest to us.

4 star rating: Recommended March 2014

The tour Guide was very knowledge and personable. Due to a snow day for many of the government workers, we were able to move about the city easily and was able to take in many sights.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this June 2013

After 4 phone calls and waiting one hour to be picked up at the Hyatt Regency on June 3, we finally got started. The driver, Bobby, was knowledgeable but never failed to insert his political view and even bragged about being a Democrat based on John F. Kennedy's run for office when he (Bobby) was 6 years old. We did not appreciate his off-color remarks and double entendres in front of our 10-year old grandson. We were offered no bottled water as mentioned in your promotional material. The delay in starting our tour resulted in a shortened visit to The Spy Museum. I would suggest an improved communication system in your company - I even called 24 hours in advance to confirm our reservation and pick-up point. Overall - a huge disappointment and not worth the money.
