This was a very informative tour that covered the monuments, the Capitol, and the National Archives. The web site said to arrive between 8:30-8:45. I arrived at 8:32 and the group had already left. After waiting, and then a phone call, they were able to give me directions so that I could meet up with the group that left early. The tour was supposed to include VIP entrance into both of the buildings and we were simply dropped off in front of the archives without a tour. Our guide, Christopher, was excellent.

I would have been rated 5 stars if only we completed 8hrs as detailed when i booked it. We started on time but we ended 2 hrs early. I know its raining at that time but we took this tour for us to make memories like taking photos. Much appreciated Of course for the history provided. Worth the money we paid.

Christopher the guide was very impressive. He was very organized and knowledgeable. He was very professional, respectful, responsible and well coordinated, Rahal was a very professional and responsible driver. I enjoyed every aspect of the trip. An excellent way to spend the day! Tamiia G

A great coverage of the Capitol building and excellent access to all the memorials. Nick our guide was very knowledgeable with a great dash of humour much appreciated by this Aussie.

Overall, a good experience. The one downside was the unprotected meeting point in the cold and wind. Lucky it wasn’t raining as well.
