Less Politics more history
Duncan_S

The tour itself was great. Unfortunately we chose to do it on memorial day so Arlington was not open. However our guide Bobby was knowledgeable and quite the entertainer. He got a bit more political than I would have liked but all and all it was a great tour of the memorials of DC. Also we ended up babysitting the other member of our tour because she was foreign and our guide stayed with the car.

The tour met my expectations. I saw the all War Memorials and Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. An additional moment at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was the Poppy Wreath provided by the American Legion Auxiliary Girl's State National tribute.

War Memorials and Arlington National Cemetery Tour

I would not recommend this tour package. Our tour guide didn’t take us around the war memorials only Vietnam and Korean was all. Tour said one water per person no water provided. Tour bus was dirty and windows has cobwebs. National Cemetery was good but you can go there yourself as tour only drops you at entrance and ticket for tram. Really disappointed about this tour.

Awesome Guide. Not Worth the Money

Bobby was an awesome tour guide - very engaged and well-informed. Unfortunately, the tour was not worth $67 per person. We bounced from monument to monument with information before and after the stops. It just felt rushed and cheap.

The tour itself was fine. Our tour guide shared interesting information on the sights, but also shared his own political views which we did Not agree with. Overall I do believe the tour was worth the money we spent

My husband and I really enjoyed our tour! The guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. We were able to experience everything we wanted to, and the highlight of the tour for my husband was watching the changing of the guard at the tomb of the unknown soldier. Being retired from the military after 24 years of service, that was the whole reason we took this particular tour.

besides our 1st tour being cancelled on us, Viator stepped up professionally and took control of the situation which made our vacation start off on the right foot until we came to this tour. Absolutely, no tour guide that explained anything. Just dropped us off and let us fend for ourselves. Needless to say the tour ended quickly with him expecting a gratuity.
