We had a great time. Our bus driver / tour guide was really great.
We could never have seen and done so much on our own--the tour was wonderful.

There is no other way to see as much as we saw in one day Mt. Vernon, Arlington National Cemetery, the War Memorials and much much more. Our driver was a fountain of knowledge a man who made the rich history of the area fun and entertaining. Not only did we learn and see a lot, but by the end of the trip, we had new friends from Southern California, Columbia their English was better than my Spanish, and Ohio. What a great day!
Our tour driver was very informative and made it very enjoyable.
A well planned day that enabled me to see all the sights. I would recommend this visit without reservation. On reflection I was amazed by what I managed to pack into one day - Mount Vernon, Arlington and all the major DC venues. A great experience.
Just perfect and stress free! Drivers were knowledgeable and friendly. This is the way to tour around the whole city with trolley. Save time, save gas, and save.
Great tour. Guide/driver was very knowledgeable and friendly. Got to see everything!!
Our driver was great, made the trip very enjoyable and very informational. The tour could be a little longer or if people were more considerable about getting back to the bus on time. Also if the Jefferson Memorial could be added. Was able to see sights we would not have since we did not rent a car for the trip.
This was a fantastic tour of the city of Washington DC!! Our guide was terrific, and very knowledgeable. I have already recommended this tour to friends of mine at work.
Perfect trip--took us everywhere and allowed us time to see things and made the stops the perfect length of time. I would tell anyone who is going to DC to do this within the first 2 days they get there so they can map their trips out! It was a great day!!
The trip was well organised and the bus driver was brilliant and very informative.
We had an outstanding guide with a wealth of knowledge. He cannot be beat!
This is the best way possible to see much of the city in a short amount of time. Mount Vernon was very interesting and could easily have spent much longer here than was possible during this itinerary. The tour of Alexandria was enjoyable, as was the route past many public buildings and memorials. The tour of Arlington Cemetery was moving and emotional.
Washington has so many landmark buildings and impressive monuments! We particularly enjoyed going out through the old towns to Mount Vernon. Would have appreciated more than the quick glimpse of the Pentagon in the far distance.

The driver was very informative. We would really recommend this tour.
The commentary was excellent, although I'm not too sure about the safety aspect of the driver doing it! We only had one day to spend in Washington and feel that this tour helped us make the most of it. We got to see all the main sights.
We had an excellent driver and guide. He knew a wealth of history of the city. He kept everyone interested all the time. This is a very good tour for seeing a lot of Washington.
The trip was a success. There was a few glitches (mainly due to more participants than they had expected). But overall they were friendly, helpful and informative. Enjoyed it a lot and I would recommend it to anyone.
The tour was very good except the 3 - 4 hours at one of the Smithsonians was way too long. The driver was very good.
Very good. The tour guide was very knowledgable which made the bus ride all the more better. The only thing I would change is to have a tour guide to walk us through the tour also.
Driver did a good job, was not aware when purchased that this also was an open top bus tho cooler below it would have been cooler yet with the back to the top not open. we chose this tour because of the heat in the area.
