Highly recommend! We had our 3 kids, ages 19, 15 & 11. He drove us around and gave us history on whatever we passed. He stopped and let us out at the FDR monument (which we loved), the MLK Jr monument, and the Lincoln Monument where we could also walk over to the Vietnam & Korean War monuments. We had ear pieces so we could hear him over the noise of traffic if it got loud.

Fantastic way to get oriented and see a lot in a short period of time. It would take you two days of walking to see everything we saw during the tour. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and really enhanced the tour with history and stories as we rode along.

The dusk sightseeing tour of the Washington Mall, The White House and The Capitol was excellent. Dion our tour guide was very knowledgeable, funny and truly provided a very educated tour. I highly recommend this tour while visiting Washington DC.

Your was good. Nick was a good tour guide had lots of knowledge of the sites.

SUPER great tour guide and great way to see the DC memorials in one day!
