We totally enjoyed this Washington, DC Express Sightseeing tour yesterday. Out tour guide promised the three E's Entertainment. Enjoyment and Enlightenment and he provided all three of those for me and my daughter. We were in town for a business trip and only had a few hours free time. This trip fit that time line perfectly. My family has never been disappointed in a Viator tour.

Definitely the best thing I did in Washington. My tour guide was brilliant. I was the only person on this tour which made it amazing. You see all the important monuments and have as much time as you need to take everything in. I would highly recommend this tour. It covers all the bases.

When I got there I just found out I was the only person who signed up for Friday afternoon tour. Even so the guide still did his job professionally and treated me like a queen lol. The trip was fun and I had a great time.

Jamie, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and personable. It was only two of us on the tour which allowed much flexibility and fine-tuning what locations were of special interest to us.

The tour Guide was very knowledge and personable. Due to a snow day for many of the government workers, we were able to move about the city easily and was able to take in many sights.
