Our tour guides were Nick with driver Rohel Both were excellent. Nick was full of little- know facts about the city and the monuments. His touch of humor made the trip fun and enjoyable. Rochel was excellent at handling traffic and her knowledge of the route was great. We felt like we were in good hands. Thank you both.

You could not ask for a better guide than Nick! He was informative and humorous. We took this tour on our first full day in D.C. It was more strenuous than we had anticipated because we got on and off the bus at many places, but we saw and experienced many more things than we had anticipated. We certainly enjoyed our tour. Excellent tour; excellent guide! I highly recommend this trip and this guide.
