Great job David and Chris. We would never have covered that much ground had we tried to do the monuments on foot. We also learned a lot and were very happy to get to the FDR and MLK memorials that we had never seen. Highly recommend this tour
Perfect introduction to DC.

I was taking my two grandkids to DC ages 14 and 12. The bus tour is a perfect way to acclimate and appreciate all that is there to see. Alex was our bus driver (lovely) and David was our knowledgable and kind guide. David was a wealth of historical knowledge. A historian who loves history and his work and it shows. I got so much out of it as did my grandsons. Alex was kind enough to drop us off at a museum at the end of the tour. It was perfect, could not have been better. Very professional. Thank you!
You can cover a lot of ground in just a few hours on this tour!

Great tour!
Our guide, Tyrone, was articulate, funny, and informative. We are a family with two teens, and this tour was perfect for them….quick and thorough. Since we were only in Washington DC for a weekend, this tour gave us a perfect sampling of the area.
