Our guide, Christopher, was so enthusiastic, and shared his considerable knowledge of Washington DC with us. The tour covered many of Washington's top sites while traveling in a comfortable mini coach bus.

Excellent guide, Nick, knowledgeable and funny very bad jokes! and a lovely guy. There was a lot to see and there was some walking, but he set a pace everyone could follow easily and there was always the option of staying on the bus. At the memorials there was plenty of time to take photos and have a good look round. Great tour and a great introduction to DC. Highly recommended.

This trip was ideal to see so many important monuments in 1 day. The driver, Derek, and the tour guide, Ralph were excellent! He gave lots of interesting historical information and the pace was just right for us and our grandkids, There was a nice mix of seeing sights from the comfortable bus, and walking around to get pictures. We loved this trip!
