This was an excellent tour! I loved the electric cart - it is open air and allows for good views and hop on and off pictures. Our guide was very knowledgable and the crew went above and beyond. The tour hit most of the monuments/memorials in a short period of time. The customer service was an added bonus- don's miss out on this tour!

Our tour guide was full of great historical facts and information. I enjoyed the information presented, but it wasn't terribly exciting for my 8 year old, evwn though she enjoys history. She opted to keep the headset off and just look around instead. The sights were beautiful, and the electric cart is a great way to see them.

Joel was our fantastic guide. I booked this tour for my husband and me, as well as my parents, who are 78 and 82. I wanted to be sure they got to see as many monuments and sights as possible without a ton of walking. This perfectly fit the bill. Joel shared great history and tips throughout the trip. Lovely!
