Great experience! We visited all the top historical spots. It was so nice to have the itinerary planned and taken care of for us… as well as the transportation! — very organized! Down to the last minute! We traveled on a bus and our guides were very knowledgeable and shared the history of each US monument or stopping point. I have nothing but great things to say about this. It was my first time using GetYourGuide. And I ended up using it / booking for every destination/ event in New York as well.

We’ve done a few bus tours now but this was by far our favourite. Stefano the guide was knowledgeable, friendly and organised. Our bus driver Devon was great too, getting us everywhere on time and making it a really comfortable journey. Stefano speaks both Italian and English and the two other nationalities, Japanese and Iranian, had their own guides too. It made it feel like a nice, exclusive experience because we were small groups and he made sure we were all close so we could hear well. Each of the stops and points of interest were exactly what you would want to stop off and see in the time we had. Despite it being a whirlwind trip, nothing felt too rushed and equally it didn’t feel like we stopped for an unnecessarily long time either. Our only criticism if pushed is that the hotel stopover is quite far from anything. We thought it would be in DC so we could explore that evening but it’s technically in Maryland so eating options are extremely limited. Worth paying for cab to DC.

Tuvimos una experiencia inolvidable y maravillosa. ..Tehila fue una excelente guía en español nos dio mucha información variada y relevante de sitios , fechas y lugares del tour. Todo el itinerario se cumplió. El paseo nos encantó en cada momento. Aunque el tiempo es corto para todo lo q Wsahington tiene para ofrecer.
