Worth going for this 1 day tour instead of trying to plan the visit on your own

This tour on its own is rather complete. I had firstly considered going by train to DC and do the same visit by myself but it would have been quite challenging considering all the distant spots we have seen. If you get in addition Marcos as guide for this tour, then for sure this will be the best deal you will find - extremely friendly and knowledgeable person. You will also get some precious infos during the journey itself.

This tour was great, long journey on the coach but worth it. Am not sure why they give you more time at the Air and Space Museum than at any other of the sights. Not even sure why they go there.
