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.
Alot in a short time a great value. Some stops need better timing. Don't think about the Smithsonain and there is not enough time to see both the MLK and FDR memorials at the same stop. But again great value other than lunch at the expensive museum cafeterias.
The tour was very comfortable and pleasant. The driver friendly and courteous .
Enjoyed but one of the museums were not that interesting...but I would do it again...
If you enjoy Monuments, History, Museums, Politics this is definitely worthwhile.
The bus driver was polite and knowledgeable. We would have preferred to see more monuments - like Washington/Jefferson/Lincoln and skip the museums. We planned to spend more time at the museums and it was much tougher to see those monuments on your own. Although we managed to see the entire Air and Space Museum.
We really would have liked a better explanation of what to expect when you arrived at ticketing. No one seemed to know you had to stand in line to trade your email tickets for ones printed there. We were in line to get on the bus for a while before someone said we needed to swap them in the ticket office.
