Excellent tour, 10/10

I was sending my boys and my parents on the tour but my wife and I decided to jump in at the last minute. And we were very glad we did. It was our first trip to DC.

This tour covered it all. It allowed my elderly parents to see all the major monuments, although my dad couldn’t do the Lincoln stairs at the end. It saved us miles of walking, but there was still quite a bit. The tour guide kept our whole family entertained for the entire 4 hours. It was really like seeing the capital on fast forward.

There was a major monument every fifteen minutes and our guide kept a running dialogue on every major building we passed. We learned much more than we expected to. It also slowed us to get a map in our heads of all the museums and monuments do we could plan the rest of our trip.

Any first timer should definitely take this tour.

Worth every dollar. Easy to schedule., reasonable prices, no rush at the spots, Itinerary was well curated and spot on. Tour guide was knowledgeable and drive was safe and ensured comfort. They also provided us bottled water and kept everyone hydrated. Well designed, tourist centric and clean, hygienic environment. I highly recommend this and will do this again.
Great way to cover lots of important places.

I bought this tour for a friend who’d never been to Washington, DC. He loved it! He walked back to a few sites that you just pointed out in a drive past them!
