Tour left without us!

We arrived for our tour at 9:04 (4 mins late which was unfortunate but couldn't be avoided due to traffic) and the tour had already left the departure point. We called and left a msg on the number provided, and the tour guide called us back shortly after to give directions to where they were. We followed those directions but on arrival could not find anyone and were turned away by security! We tried to call the number again but it wasn't even ringing through to voicemail so we gave up. All in all not very happy. I’m sure it’s a very good tour of you can get on it!! Would like a refund please?

While we understand that traffic can delay arrival in DC, that is why we recommend planning to arrive 15 minutes early. When our guests run a few minutes late and they contact us ahead of time, we able frequently able to make accommodations. In this instance, based on the phone records, we received a call at 9:13 am, and by this point had already began our tour as our other guests had been waiting outside on a particularly cold day. When we received the call, our tour had only just moved inside at the Supreme Court, our first stop. At this point, the guide paused his tour, gave directions for meet up with the group (as stated above), and waited for an additional 15 minutes. After answering a second call from the missing guests at 9:27, our guide had to continue on with the remaining guests in order to ensure that the rest of the group did not miss the full tour. Our apologies, but we do at some point have to consider the experience for all of our guests on board. We made every possible effort to accommodate and help you join the group; I am sorry this did not work out but we could not stop the experience for all other customers. Our refund policy is clear: 24-hour advance cancelation required. While we try to be as flexible as possible, failing to notify our guide of delays until after the tour begins takes available space from other interested guests on purposely small group tours.

Capital Hill Guided Small-Group tour

This tour was great. It was with my wife and I. We were the only couple, so the tour the tour was basically one on one. Liam was our tour guide. He was very knowledgeable of the Library of Congress, the Supreme Court, and The Capital building. He also gave us a history of Arlington Cemetery, even though this was not part of our tour. I can’t believe how knowledgeable Liam was of our history and government. I highly recommend this tour!

This became a 1 on 1 so I was able to ask lots of questions and really enjoyed it. As a professor, it is always a pleasure to get to be a student of someone else with a wealth of knowledge to share. This is the only tour I found that goes to the library of congress and supreme court.

This was a very interesting and informative tour, which we thoroughly enjoyed. Our guide (sorry I can't remember his name) was very friendly and personable. We would never have been able to gain this information on out own. It was also great that we could ask some questions about living in DC and what this was like. Thanks!

This was the best tour I have ever been on. It was so good because of our tour guide, Liam. He was fantastic and was so knowledgeable about all of the 4 venues. He told us so much interesting information during the tour. Thank you, Liam!

This tour was awesome. Lyam was our guide and he was wonderful. I had 3 grandchildren with me and he kept their attention as well as mine. He was very accommodating and answered all our questions about not only the tour but Washington too. We were very excited to find out that he would be our guide the next day at Arlington. Great tour.
