Unfortunately it rained all day. We enjoyed the driver because she was well educated on the info of the monuments that we went by. Had the opportunity to get off and we did only on a few due to the weather. Great experience otherwise and we would do it ago!
I give it 5 stars!

This tour with Zohery Tours was by far, the highlight of my week in D.C!!! I went on the daytime tour, as well as the night tour and both were amazing! The owner and tour guide, Ali has an AMAZING amount of knowledge of Washington D.C., the history of the city, where to go and what to do, and literally anything else you would ever want to know about this town! He also went WAY out of his way to accommodate his guests, by arranging alternate drop-offs, asking his guests about their preferences of what to spend the most time on, etc. He even spent almost 2 hours on his personal phone between stops, trying to help me find alternate hotel accommodations because mine were falling through at the last minute! Ali made such an impression on me, not only as a tour operator in a town where tours are a dime a dozen, but as an amazing and compassionate person! Thank you for your kindness Ali and please know that I will always consider you a friend! I will be back soon, next time with my family, and we will definitely be on your bus!

Thomas was an excellent tour guide! Aside from being very knowledgeable about all of the monuments, he was very accommodating to our interests.

We did this tour with Zohery Tours. Thomas was our driver and he was great. He was friendly, funny and had a lot of information. The only thing is we wished that we had a little more time to spend at certain stops like the Vietnam Memorial and Korean War Memorial. We would recommend this tour.

Waiting at the Hyatt Regency for our tour bus, we were a little concerned when after seeing many motorcoaches pull up, our small bus arrived. The tour manager arrived to confirm our tickets, then left the bus in the hands of the driver - who I think was named Paul. We were initial unsure, however, the driver was the highlight of the tour with his years of historical knowledge of the area. He amazed us with all the facts and figures which he easily recalled during our tour. Getting on and off the tour was easy - probably easier than a large coach. The reason we took the tour was to get the layout of the area so better to decide what we wanted to see in more detail. We also had the ability to spend 15-20 minutes at each of the monuments - which after the initial day was a good break from walking. I would recommend the tour - we enjoyed it!

This was a great tour, with limited time in Washington we were able to see all the sights and the guide was very informative.

Had also taken a half-night tour and both driver's provided insight and great commentary information for the various sites. Gave ample time for close-up photos. Recommend taking both a night and day tour.

The tour was great however, maybe a little more enthusiasm in the commentary to keep my kids awake

Ali is very knowledgeable. Lots of information and history facts. He needs to speak a little slower. Saw almost everything that there was to see in DC in a few hours. Value! Thanks , Ali.

It was great, the tour Guide was very knowledgable but he was 35 minutes late and did not call to tell us he would be late. He blamed traffic but the doorman at the Hyatt said he is late everyday which is inconsiderate and unacceptable.

Great tour to briefly see most of the attractions in Washington DC. The bus was fairly cooled down although a little bit worn-out. The driver was knowledgeable but the sound system was distorting a lot of information he was sharing with. The pick-up point was about a 30 minute walk from our hotel which wasn't too pleasant to walk through some of the shady areas of DC.
I have tried other tour operators and they all seem to be within the same level.

This was a perfect way to take in many of the sights in Washington, especially since we only had a limited time. We covered a lot of territory. We were able to disembark from the bus at various stops to take pictures, etc. My only complaint about this tour was that it was difficult to understand the guide at times so I think we missed out on a lot of information.

The tour was listed as 4 hours, but the driver came 20 minutes late without any notification and it ended 10 minutes earlier. The tour listed as one of its step off and visit locations the Jefferson Memorial. That did not happen. The driver stated he does not stop there, and that was one of the attractions my family was excited about seeing. We were given 30 minutes to get off and visit the Lincoln Memorial including the Vietnam and Korean Memorial and 30 minutes to visit the Franklin Roosevelt and Martin Luther King Memorial. Both should have been 40 minutes --especially if you were not quick on your feet, which could have happened if tour bus was not late and arrived early. I understand this tour was an overview, but those 2 spots needed to be 40 minutes. The rest of the tour was tour was as expected. Our driver was personal, well informed, and engaging. All in all, the tour was good, but could not rate it as excellent or above average based on my comments. JPL

Driver knowledgble. Main problem was we were 20-25 minutes late starting and then ran into a march. Had to wait without changing route. Tour didn't end until 1:35.

This certainly was not a 'Grand Tour' hence the title is somewhat misleading. We arrived early for pick up however actual pick up was 20 minutes late so we were concerned something had gone wrong. The van was aged and not that clean inside ect. On a positive Ali our tour guide was very pleasant and extremely knowledgeable around Washington, great detail. The last opportunity to stop ended at 1:30pm with the option of drop off to the pick up point or Capital. The tour effectively started at 10:50 and finished by say 2pm so not really half a day. For those visiting Washington is amazing we stayed on at the three memorials and walked through to capital, fantastic walk, loads of photo opportunities.

Did not stop at all the stops listed. Tour guide did not get out with us or explain well where we were to go at the Lincoln/Korean/WWII memorial. Just said to be back in 30 mins. With walk time, that is about 6 mins at each...if you know where you are going. Didn't stop at all at Iwo Jima or go by Arlington Cemetery.

Trip was informative, but the bus was very old and needed to be traded in, smelled and run down
