Dexter is the best tour guide ever! He is professional and knowledgeable and goes above and beyond to assist you. This 4 hour tour exceeded every expectation we had, due to Dexter. When we arrived at Arlington, Dexter even walked us inside and went through security with us to actually guide us to the ticket purchase for the trolley bus and then, gave us detailed explanations of how to navigate each and every stop. We were never confused or uncertain about what to do. He is just great and we can’t say enough about this tour!

Dexter was a great tour guide! Very professional, on time and extremely informative. We were so fortunate to be in Wash D.C. on Memorial Day weekend. There were thousands of veterans in town. Our tour was so complete and we thoroughly enjoyed seeing every monument and memorial. We highly recommend Viator and have used them often around the world with our family for tours. Every American needs to take this tour to be reminded how lucky we are to live in this country . It is not to be missed and we were so glad we took it and picked up so much history and a real sense of patriotism along the way!!!

the person running this tour was just ok. he drove us to the memorials and dropped us off to be met at the next point. I don't call that a guided tour by any means. the van was rather old and not too clean. we were able to take the second scooter on this tour ... one in the back seat and the other in the rear of the van. If however my daughter had not been with us to help the driver with the scooters we would not have been able to take either one of them. there was no way he would be able to lift them onto the van by himself. this situation did not make for a pleasant experience. you should check this out so future people won't be disappointed as we were.
