The tour was detailed and provided access to a variety of Washington highlights. I couldn't have seen so many of these on my own in the time I had available. The bus was clean, comfortable, and spacious. Most important, our driver was knowledgeable, kind, funny, and altogether a joy to spend a day with. Thanks, Big Sarge!
Great way to see the sights in a large, very nice bus. My in laws were visiting and it was perfect for them to be able to see and do things. You can get off the bus or stay on when stopping at a site. The driver was awesome. Very informative and took us on a tour at Arlington. He was retired from the military and had much knowledge to share. The sites were all on our list to see. The only complaint I have is that we started at 9:00 and didn't get to eat lunch until 1:30. I think having lunch before going to Arlington would be much better.
Our driver Kenny was kind, patient and enjoyed his job! He gave us ample time at each stop, and we saw more than I expected. Kenny made sure we had more than enough time at Arlington National Cemetery to not only see many important features, but also to see the changing of the guard, without feeling hurried. The bus was comfortable, cool very important in July! and Kenny even dropped us a short distance from our hotel instead of us having to return via Metro. I recommend this tour so highly that I have already referred several friends! I would take the DC Grand Tour again in a heartbeat!
Lots of walking so be prepared!! We enjoyed ourselves completely!! The hop on hop off was great, we could spend more time at the places we wanted to without being rushed.
The tour of Washington DC was excellent. The tour guide was the best and the price could not be beat.
This tour was great. It covered all of the monuments we wanted to see and Arlington Cemetery in a one-day tour. It was well worth it, especially if you have a limited time in DC!
The grand tour was excellent. We got to see so many of the monuments is such a short time. Vincent was a wealth of knowledge and a lot of fun. We would highly recommend this tour. We had a great time.
A very efficient way to see Washington. The guide was excellent. He adjusted as necessary to accommodate the needs and interest of the group.
My only constructive criticism relates to Arlington. I suggest you build the visit around tram ride. Far too much walking, and as a result this absorbed too much time.
This was a great way to see the monuments in a short amount of time. Navigating the monuments and Arlington all on our own would have taken days, and tons of headaches, not to mention sore feet. Just so you know the bus gets you close to everything. There are still some pretty significant hikes involved once you get
close. We had people in wheel chairs, crutches/canes, elderly etc. on our bus. It was possible for them to see most of it, but not all, especially with the limited amount of time. Arlington would require an additional tram ride purchase as it is a hike from where the bus drops you off. Angelo was our driver and did a very nice job. We loved that we were able to see so much in one day.
We saw everything during this 8 hour tour that we wanted to see and more than we could have on our own.
Awesome experience. Our bus driver and tour guide was great and full of wonderful information.
We had an awesome time on the tour. Our tour guide was super nice and really knew DC. He also had cold bottled water for sale which was perfect since we didn't think to bring any and it was a super hot day. I would definitely recommend this tour!
We were amazed how much we were able to see and do in one day. Our guide was well versed and very pleasant. The bus was very nice and comfortable with restroom facilities on board. We were very pleased with the entire tour and very glad they picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel.
Absolutely brilliant I would go on it again and again our tour guide was amazing he made it amazing and fun!!!
it is a great tour! Our tour guide is knowledgable and resourceful. He really knows the area. The hiking at arlingtong is fun.

Great tour. Saw all the highlights without the problems of Hop on Hop off queues.
Great tour to see all major highlights in DC when you have limited time to do so.
Vincent, our guide, was super friendly and ver knowledged, and did an awesome job of getting us as close as possible to all monuments for drop-off to ensure we have ample of time everywhere.
We were the only three on the bus. Felt a little hurried at each stop. Ready at 9:00 am - got back at 2:00 pm. Not close to a approximately 7 hour trip. Thomas was funny and knowledgeable - but I wasn't as satisfied as I was a couple of years ago with another tour bus company. Don't remember who...
We misunderstood where the pickup was when we visited the Capitol and the driver left us. He did not drive around to the drop off point. Fortunately, I was able to call the dispatch number and take a taxi 20!! to catch up with the driver. I noticed after this fiasco, the driver did a head count at each stop thereafter. This spoiled the entire trip for me and my friend AND we missed the White House stop.
The Bus driver was very rude and didn't wait for us after lunch, we had to take a cabwith our infant baby to go for the next stop. I don't recommend this tour for families especially travelling with seniors and Kids/infants.
