Great experience- the tour guide was very informative and everything was as scheduled
The tour ideally suites busy travellers and covers all important attractions. Very well organized/
Gives you a good flavour of Washington D.C. in a day. Plenty of time at each stop and wasn't rushed around. Lovely trip down from New York to Washington D.C through all the states. Quite long day though, which is to be expected.
Excellent and informative guide,brilliant way to see the main attractions of DC.Could have spent longer at the Lincoln memorial and less at Arlington. Really enjoyable and worthwhile day.
Brilliant tour - Jonathan was a fab guide, he was very informative and knowledgeable during the drive there and back, and we managed to fit in an awful lot in the day, would highly recommend. If you get a chance go on this trip.

Although a long drive getting there and back, this tour was amazing and our guide highly knowledgeable and very polite with all the different nationalities. He was also very accommodating with all our needs. Worth every penny. A must do. Liz
It was a long day travelling but so so worth it, Washington is beautiful and a complete contrast to New York, so they complimented each other. Our tour guide, Mayan, was extremely professional and efficient but at the same time very likeable and approachable - we thought she was perfect, and very knowledgeable about the tour. Could've done with a little longer in the museum, and the half-way stop-offs were a little stressful because queues were so slow and l-o-n-g and we had to be mindful of timings, but other than those small things we thoroughly enjoyed our day trip, it was well organised and thoroughly enjoyable. Would highly recommend both the trip and this company, excellent value for money.
I thank John R for booking this tour within a few hours of departure.. The day trip to Washington was comfortable and was able to see Washington main iconic locations for a day trip from New York you see both places.
It was a fantastic day trip to Washington would highly recommend it .the tour guide was brilliant he knew everything it and #39;s a musy
This was a brilliant tour and is well worth the early start. It is a whistle stop tour of many attractions; and whilst this can be a little frustrating when wanting to take photographs it didn and #39;t detract from the day.
Amazing trip with a very accommodating tour guide who bent over backwards to fit as much in as possible and so informative too. It is a trip I would thoroughly recommend.
We both really enjoyed the trip.
Bus was comfortable, guides were excellent.
Thoroughly enjoyable long day but saw everything we wanted. The guides and bus drivers were very friendly and provided enough information without going into too much detail - would definitely recommend this trip to others.
This was a long day, about 14 hours, but they did a great job getting you to DC, seeing many of the major sites, and back to NYC. The bus was comfortable with good viewing options. Two tour guides provided commentary to support 4 different languages English, French, German, and Mandarin. The tour did not provide food but stops were made to allow passengers to purchase food and use restrooms. Highly recommended if you're staying in NYC and dedicate a day to get a taste of DC.
This really is a long trip. It took more than an hour to get out of Washington so we got back to New York at 10 pm. The regular stops for food and restrooms made the journey manageable . The guide was helpful and very knowledgeable . We saw so much and had time to explore some sites alone. Very interesting overview of American history . Worth doing despite the long bus ride.
fantastic day out....so much to see and the guide was really informative ... well worth the money
This was my first time trying something like this and it ended up beinthe best day trip ever! Even though the bus ride was long it was expected. The rest stop helped out alot with grabbing a bite and stretching your legs. Saw all attractions which was amazing. Plenty of time at all locations. Tour guides let you have your space and explore different places also. Took tons of pictures! Very humorous tour guides, they did a good job speaking multi languages. The bus was Very comfortable. Would recommend this tour to anyone who is in NYC for a few days and wants to do something different. Already planning my next tour! Thanks Viator!
I love it!Great experience!The tour guide Andres is very kind and have a great knowledge about the place.
I have to rate this tour 10 out of 10 and whilst it was a very long day, it was well planned with some nice comfortable breaks and a very informative guide. The transportation was excellent and very comfortable and we left right on time and arrived back to base pretty well on schedule. The tour was wonderful and the Nationals capital held so many points of interest and history. For a day trip we could not be more happy. The only comment I shall make is the start location, some people got confused with tour operator and Greyhound and those people were directed to the main bus station and only just arrived for the 7am start. Please thank all concerned. Angela and Stephanie

We were on a mixed coach of German and English speaking tourists for our day trip to Washington. We had a great day although four hour drive there and four hours drive back may be a bit much for some people. We actually had a great time. Washington was superb we got to see all what we expected as described in the tour. The Capitol was partially covered in Scaffolding but it was a magnificent sight walking right up close, the White house was a bit underwhelming and small, Madame Tussaud's was interesting but the Lincoln memorial the reflection lake and Vietnam war memorial were magnificent. The Smithsonian air and space museum was brilliant. We had a fun day. The tour guides were wonderful and filled us in on historical and up to date facts. The two bus drivers were magnificent drivers and we felt quite safe in their hands. The bus stopped every two hours so it was quite manageable and the coach was comfortable. We thought it highly amusing as the film on the way back to New York was the Enigma code. I would definitely recommend this tour as it was a most enjoyable day trip. An added bonus was the wonderful cherry blossom Peak.
