    Christopher and Ali were our guide and driver… they were awesome! They really knew their stuff! Christopher was so patient with those of us that were older & slower. Ali always had the bus right where it was supposed to be and very punctual. That was much appreciated. We also loved the boat ride. My only suggestion would be that as we sign up for this tour, from the description I was under the impression that lunch was included in the price of the tour. Maybe you could change the verbiage a bit. Thank you for a lovely day in our nations capital! Sucerey, Lori Strasburger

    Me gusto mucho el tour, el guía Fernando excelente con un alto conocimiento de su trabajo y de la historia de USA. Los conductores muy profesionales también, y me gusto mucho que el bus tenga 2 conductores, se siente seguridad y me genera confianza en la empresa, soy agente de viajes en Colombia y cuenten con que recomendaré sus servicios. Solo diría que me encantaría que se incluyera en la visita al cementerio de Arlington, ver la rumba del soldado desconocido. El tiempo se aprovecha bastante bien para conocer todos los monumentos y edificios más representativos de DC.
