What people are saying about Washington, DC

Washington tour guide was excellent, a lot to cover for short time

from the meeting place-very busy but quite safe, double checked for tickets but not ID. The bus- clean and ok for comfort, got toilet but not enough support to be left clean by customer- a bit unsanitary. Excellent and safe drivers, respect everyone as adult. Bi-lingual tour guide is excellent, except some people just don't get it. So sometimes we lost time by waiting on them. Short but informative visit to the center with 10 minute video. Lots and lots of walking, sometimes very unforgiving to older generations, specially on a hot and humid day. No options to eat at chinatown, wherein, food is a little cheaper and interesting. No megaphone for everyone to hear what instruction was being given, so sometimes the older generations makes mistake by not being on time. Only a black open umbrella was used as a point or mark to head back to the bus or where the guide will be at a certain time. Bill, a veteran, our tour guide was excellent- historically more believable than the statue/building

Very nice trip, everything you need to see

one day for D.C. is just enough, we saw everything which is worth visiting, first Arlington and JFK grave, then we went next to Pentagon and the Marines monument, then we stopped to see Washington monument and Lincoln memorial, also Korean War veterans memorial, there is enough time to see everything. Later you go to visit museums and you have free time to see one of the them which you like most (air & space/art gallery and so on), at the end you visit the capitol. While going by bus you can also see FBI building and streets of D.C. Very polite, cheerful and wise guide!

It was a great and memorable experience!

It was an awesome trip. Everything was organized. Our lead tour guide Micol was amazing. She was very knowledgeable, caring and accommodating. Perhaps I booked the wrong tour as the French guests are prioritized when it comes to discussion as there were a lot of them. Lesson for me, make sure I don’t book bilingual. But all in all, take and book this trip. All hassle free and you will enjoy!

One of the best day trips we’ve been on, guide Brian very knowledgable

Thought this trip may be crammed, but opposite was true, plenty time to see the various highlights the coach visits. The driver was safe and smooth, the onboard guide was informative and friendly. If you’re in New York and have a day to spare, do it! It was one of the highlights of our holiday!

Vey nice. Edgar, our guide, was excellent. Very knowledgeable.

Edgar, our guide, was excellent. Very knowledgeable, friendly, personable and funny. The time on site at Mt. Vernon needs to be about 30-40 minutes longer for a proper visit. We rushed through everything and had to skip some of the museum exhibits. Did not make it to the gift shop either.
