We had such a fun and informative guide named Anna! The electric cart was a unique, fun, and stylish way to get around DC! It was a fantastic cherry red color. We received lots of admiring looks and waves from pedestrians and drivers alike. One woman even stopped while crossing the street to take a photo of the red cart! Anna knows her DC insider knowledge. She was very informative about the monuments, the streets, and backstory. And, total bonus: she's extremely pleasant. I highly recommend a tour with Anna and her cherry red electric cart. Here we are in front of the Library of Congress. The tour is quick only two hours but it's s nice taste'of DC when you have limited time. Thanks, Anna! -- Ann, Lisa, Jen, and Kim

We had a great tour. We were the only two with the guide, and she was marvelous. She knew her history and knew how to avoid traffic concerns. Wife has concerns with walking, so cart ride was perfect for the both of us.

I have been coming to DC for over 20 years and this was the first time ever taking a tour. I thought that I really knew Washington but Miller proved me wrong. She was outstanding and this 2 hour tour was the highlight of our weekend. My family raved about her and I can't think of a better way to get immersed quickly into DC. Plus she really knows the coffee shops!!!!

Covered a lot of DC in two hours. Mike was very informative, funny, friendly and accommodating. A great way to see so much in a short amount of time. Liked the small group and stops at the FDR, MLK and Lincoln memorials was perfect.
