Not bad, but not worth it
Cesar_G, May 2022
Not a bad experience, just not what I expected. Driver was fun and engaging but I thought the driver would get off. Didn’t find out about water until after 2 hours. Capitol photo opportunity was 4 minutes, 2 feet from bus. Would of liked a lot more facts about sites for the price. Take the covered tour looked like the better deal.

Got left behind by the bus at the Vietnam War Memorial while walking up it and had to wave down another bus to get back to the starting point.
Ask for Christopher!

Great tour guide was very knowledgable and passionate. Is an experience everyone should be a part of
Great way to see all the major monuments
Scott_F, May 2022
This was a great way to see all the major monuments in a short amount of time (3 hrs). You don't spend more than about 15-20 minutes at each stop but it give you the flavor and after about 3 hours you are done with walking around . "Mr Map" our guide was informative and entertaining. He helped us understand that geography and history of the lay out of the city. I would recommend.
Must do in DC
Rachael_L, May 2022
I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting DC...the pictures just don't do it justice. We had an excellent tour guide, Larry who made the experience even better!
