    We opted for the trip in German, but we received an email 1 day before that the German tour guide was ill. However, we were offered to take part in the English one or to postpone it to 3 days later. We chose English and it was great. Our tour guide Chris did a great job and we were enriched with lots of information. Since it was Memorial Day that day, we had to wait a little at the cemetery, for example, which was worth it because we were able to meet the President. Also, you couldn't see the white house as usual. Nevertheless, it was a successful day.

    Excellent tour, being able to know the main points of the American capital was very good. Highlight for our guide José Luis, who was doing the tour speaking in Spanish and Portuguese. José is very experienced and has a very good resourcefulness. To Brazilians who want to know Washington I highly recommend the tour with him. And get ready, because every cm gives. City has a history.

    The trip was great. For the short time in DC you saw a lot and took a lot with you, but it wasn't stressful. Our German travel companion Jutta did a great job, explained everything to us and we had a lot of fun together. We were able to see a lot and had enough time to take photos and eat something. The bus ride was great. The bus drivers drove great and the time went by super fast because you could rest and get information about the cities you passed.
