This tour was awesome. Lyam was our guide and he was wonderful. I had 3 grandchildren with me and he kept their attention as well as mine. He was very accommodating and answered all our questions about not only the tour but Washington too. We were very excited to find out that he would be our guide the next day at Arlington. Great tour.

Very informed guide. We really enjoyed the range of the tour - Congressional buildings, Library of Congress, Supreme Court and the Folger/Shakespeare Library. A lovely way to spend the morning.

Even with a guide we had to wait an hour for him to get passes to go into the Congressional buildings. It would be good to know that there is a place to check bags and coats at the beginning of the tour.

Liam was a very nice guide. He knew a lot about the history and the city. We were the only two on that day and it was great! Weve enjoyed the walking tour with him very much: starting at the Capitol was a great begin of our tour, it was fantastic! The Library was so beautiful. And walking outside was with great views.

We all had a wonderful day with Liam. He was so interesting and made the tour a pleasure. There was not a minute that he didn't captivate our attention. BRAVO! and Thank you.

Great tour. Liam was a fast flowing fountain of interesting and enlightening information and trivia. He took good care of 4 quite senior citizens--walking slowly, avoiding as many stairs as possible and getting us elevator rides. So much to see and learn and such beautiful architecture inside and out---not to be missed when in DC. Would strongly recommend this tour for locals and visitors, ages 10 and up. Very satisfying experience.

One of the best tours we have done, so much more than I expected, not going to say any more than just do it if you are in Washington, you won't be disappointed !

The main tip I would give my fellow future travellers is.
Make sure you have a phone number to call someone.
We arrived at our pick up point, waited and waited, no one showed up!
We called the guide, who bless him was there within 10 mins.
The tour was good , the guide Liam was excellent.
Bit of a let down from Viator.
