Our 1 day DC adventure
Christine_P, 10-01-2023
We booked a last minute tour the night before since we were in DC for only 1 full day. We decided this 2 hr electric cart tour would be part of our day. Well it was the highlight all because our guide JOEL!! He was so knowledgeable, friendly & super animated that he kept us interested the whole time! Plus he gave us an excellent restaurant recommendation for lunch right afterwardS! Do not hesitate to book this company but be sure to ask for JOEL

The personal touch having Nick explain everything in depth was amazing! it was a chilly day, but we were very comfortable in the carts. I highly recommend this tour over the larger bus or group tours. You see all the highlights and neck is just the best!
Extraordinary tour guide

His knowledge of the monuments and memorials were amazing. He made the experience extraordinary so much so that we plan to bring our kids in the summer to experience and learn about their country.
