It was a very nice experience to explore the city in the Glass-top bus. The glass top gave us excellent views of the city and allowed us to see everything at once. The bus also stops on various points so that we feel the history of the city from front. It is a good mixture of walking, enjoying the ride and getting to know unlimited facts about the city. A big thanks to Dion, our tour guide who knew everything about the city and narrated beautiful stories to us about all the points, the memorials, museums and many more.

I am glad I booked a tour. I would not have seen as much a we did without the help of our tour guide Larry and driver Chris both amazing, friendly, funny knowledgeable. Thank you you guys made my trip to Washington memorable.
