Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

I booked this tour because I was taking my parents (age 75 and 79) to Washington for their first time and I knew they were not able to walk the city. This was a family trip that also included my 2 and 4 year old grandchildren. I was concerned that the grandchildren would be bored but they were not. The guide did an AMAZING job making it interesting for everyone. Even though we were part of a bus load, he made everyone feel as if this tour was just for them. The guide was extremely informative and entertaining. The only bump in the road was lunch. Because of the range in age it would have been nice to know to know that lunch was late so I would have packed snacks. But the guide ( wish I could remember his name) was tuned into his group and gave those that wanted to a chance to buy snacks. I would highly recommend this tour and will probably do it again.

Great tour, Lynette is a wealth of knowledge. It is best to take this tour in the Fall/Winter, less traffic and you can have a smaller, more intimate group and get all of your questions answered.
