    My husband and I loved this tour! we learned a lot and took great pictures too. We took the 3hrs tour and it was enough to see the most important landmark in town but we felt like we should’ve done the whole day and keep seeing more great places that this town have to offer. The bus was very comfortable and clean + Kris was a excellent driver, also loved our guide Casey.. she provided good information and kept it interesting at all times. Definitely recommending this tour.

    The tour was fabulous! Joey the tour guide was extremely informative and what I learned in one day was overwhelmingly wonderful. Her knowledge of Washington DC is absolutely incredible. She went out of her way to make my disabled boyfriend and I very comfortable. She is an amazing person and tour guide. My thanks to her for a great experience.

    Good tour, but there were not many historical facts and about Washington buildings and memorials. How downtown was transformed in 20th century and when main federal buildings were built. Please, include Thomas Jefferson Memorial in 3 hour tour!!! Needed to see Thomas Jefferson memorial closer, not from other side of the lake.
