    The tour guide had no energy. He talked and drove fast and it was extremely hard to see the monuments and understand what we were looking at. We were so disappointed as there are many tours to take and we chose this one thinking it would be good. We feel it was a waste of time and money. We are all upset.

    Terrible Tour
    Anya_T
    , Jun 2022
    We were supposed to see 8 stops. We did two. Only two in 3 hours. This experience could have been better prepared for by the tour company. We deserve a refund. The tour guide did not fill our time in the bus with interesting facts- it was boring, and we couldn't wait to get off. Further the tour guide didn't bother to even properly name black lives matter avenue. He called it"Black matter lives" meanwhile he got all other names that he shared correct, no matter how complex. We would never recommend!

    Our tour guide was a wealth of knowledge & we learned so much. The stops were what we wanted to see & the tour was a good amount of time. I liked knowing that I didn't have to wait for another bus to come.

    Charles was an excellent guide. There was a ton of detours and construction and he took it in stride. He always had a personal anecdote and knew the area well. I had a great time and my son did as well, it was a great birthday present!

    Very informative, but there is so much to see in such a short time that it can be overwhelming. Could improve a bit by taking longer and having a little more discussion about each site. Great overview of DC overall.

    Tour guide was good, but then was being questioned by police for something. We had to wait, not knowing what was going on and I feel we missed out on some of the tour. Would be nice to get some sort of refund...at least for parking. Disappointed that they made no effort.

    Terrible experience
    Saumil_S
    , Jun 2022
    We left the trip mid-way. It was memorial day weekend and most streets were blocked. The bus didn't make any stops. We contacted tour operator and no one responded. The driver said he didn't know what to do either. So basically we paid for doing nothing, but to sit in the bus on crowded streets. The tour operators was aware of the blockade prior to the tour and still continued with the tour. Terrible service. They denied any refunds too.

    Don’t go when there is a bug holiday and roads are closed off to normal traffic. Only got four stops instead of the advertised 8 stops. Driver did not keep the parties on time. Driver needs to keep his personal feelings about traffic, grocery stores and the like out of the commentary. Felt like a rip off

    The company should cancel day tours if it’s a holiday, knowing before hand that the streets will be barricaded. We essentially made one stop out of eight. Total waste of time and money( at least on the day I took the tour)

    WORST EXPERIENCE FOR EVERYONE WHO DID THIS TOUR TODAY
    Cassee_C
    , May 2022
    If I could give 0 stars I would. Signed up for the full day tour. 4 hours of monuments. 4 hours for Mt Vernon. The day started off fine went to White House snapped some photos left there about 30 minutes after tour started. Went to go to the memorials. Could not get to the memorials due to traffic with Memorial Day weekend. Understandable. Driver took us impromptu to the marine corps memorial on the other side of the river. However, next thing I know we’re sitting in a lot of traffic. I looked at Google maps and the tour guide seemed to be taking every single way that was backed up when there are alternative routes. Next thing I know it is 2pm after 3 hours of traffic and we’re back at the pick up spot. We went to 2 memorials! Out of the 15+ we were supposed to drive by or stop at. There were 8 stops approximately on the list. We went to 1/8!! When we arrived back at the pick up EVERYONE was confused like how is it over. We were told to get off ask for a refund or reschedule if possible. That’s it. One of the drivers of the tour bus (there were 2 busses staying together) actually was being aggressive with customers and with other drivers just by the hotel where we were picked up! It was crazy he was getting up in peoples faces/hitting cars trying to leave. Then for the second part tour Mt Vernon. We decided after witnessing the aggression and not seeing anything already to forgo and request a refund. There was supposed to be 4 hours down to the area, we instead went to eat lunch next to the pickup spot. Surprisingly, the bus was back within an hour with auto issues. So thank goodness we decided not to go otherwise would have been wasting time and missing another event that evening! They knew it was a holiday and have been giving tours for a while. If they knew it would be too busy for a tour they shouldn’t have the dates available. It was not on us customers. Horrible company, horrible customer service! Do not recommend!!
