You could spend a whole month in Washington DC and still not see everything.
The tour took us around the city to several different places.
The Capital Building, Library of Congress, Vietnam War memorial, FDR Roosevelt Memorial and more.
The tour was very good and relaxing. All the busses where very clean and air conditioned.
We had a very good time and the tour guides looked like they were having just as much fun as we were.

First, Edgar was a very good guide during the Monuments part of the tour. I have done many Viator tours - mostly internationallly and we were very disappointed with this tour. We first were escorted on foot to the Capitol for the tour by a Capitol guide very good by the way but not told we weren't able to take unopened snacks and drinks of any kind into the Capitol so all had to be thrown away. After that tour we were taken by 'Mini Coach' 5 or 6 blocks to then get on a full size motor coach at 10:30 for the rest of the tour. From there we toured monuments until 2pm when we finally had lunch......8:15-2 without any nourishment in 98 temps was poor planning. We were offered water but that ran out and I only had 2 small bottles on an 8 hour tour in a heat index of 103! The tour title says Major MOnuments VIA Mini Coach......we chose this tour to be in a smaller group and paid accordingly. I see the details say in 1 spot we will join a coach group but it is implied by the title it is a smaller group. We wanted a smaller group for MANY reasons....one being quicker on and off times to have more time at tour sites quicker restroom breaks to name a few. The 5 or 6 blocks the minivan took us cannot be counted as a mini coach. 1 We should have been told we couldn't take any type of snack or even water into the Capitol 2 Why is 'Mini Coach' even in the Title of the Tour? 3 The tour guide should break for lunch much sooner than 2pm when having people who would have had no nourishment since 8am while exerting so much energy walking. As a medical professional I was watching for people with heat stroke or headaches. At no time did we pass a snack truck and only having 10 minutes at each monument it was unrealistic for us to walk 1/2 or 1 block to a food truck. Why couldn't you provide at least a granola bar to those joining the tour after the Capitol? Take care of your people! 4 Ran out of water mid afternoon.........amazing! Plan for a large group and buy accordingly you specifically state water is provided or even specify how many bottles were allotted for each passenger....I got 2, some probably 7 or 8. I have always had a good relationship with Viator but was very disappointed in the way the tour was organized. Even the person escorting us to the Capitol barely spoke to us with all our walking to the Capitol and through the Library of Congress...much wasted downtime that could have been used to increase our knowledge of where we were...he was pleasant just not engaging. OK - did I still enjoy seeing what I did? Yes, the guide was knowledgeable and engaging and of course the monuments were inspiring and for that we were glad we went. I do not however, believe we got what we paid for and cannot give a good review. I feel I will need to inform my TripAdvisor followers so they don't find themselves in the same predicament.

Excellent trip! Annie, our tour guide, was great at sharing historical, very interesting, and sometimes humorous stories about the many sites on and around this small group tour. Very highly recommended!
