Great time

The tour was good. I was with a small group. The guide/driver had an accent that was heavy and sometimes harder to understand when he spoke quickly but overall I enjoyed my tour.

Superb. The tour guide was very informative and patient. The weather was nice for the most part, sunny and clear but it was super windy and cold. Would definitely do that again but not in Feb.
Great Overview of Washington, D.C.

This is a great tour if you only have a half day to see the sights in Washington,DC. We visited all the major sites and had enough time to explore them and take photos. Our guide, Lloyd, was knowledgeable and courteous. The bus was new and comfortable. I highly recommend this tour.
Guided family tour of D.C.

This was a very good guided tour. Dr. Zohery was very knowledged about D.C. area and monuments. He was helpful with assisting my senior family members with physical requirements. Highly recommend this tour.
Informative Tour

The tour guide/driver was very knowledgeable about the history of DC. The vehicle was comfortable and clean. We were given a DVD of DC to watch later. We were part of a small group and the guide provided opportunities to stop and tour various sites along the tour. Even suggestions for where we could go to the bathroom! I would recommend this tour.

The tour was very good and the driver was very accommodating letting us join up after missing the start of the tour. He was very informative and we enjoyed the sites. The only thing I would do different is not to come during cherry blossom time, it was so crowded that we wound up sitting in traffic jams.

I booked this as a kid friendly tour-it really wasn't. Our tour guide was very informed, but we were unable to understand him. Would have liked having a guide who spoke much better English. Was very disappointed. Ended up buying the DVD to be able to understand the tour. Maybe that's the idea to sell your DVD's. We took a tour in Moab, Utah for the Arches Park. It was great so expected the same with this tour.
worth the time and $$

Bus was late in arriving. There was no one there to tell us if we were in the right place. The air conditioning on the bus was operating at about 25%. There was no water i on the bus. (Another similar tour which I took a few years ago had bottled water for us.) The driver tried hard, but his foreign accent made it difficult to understand him. My wife and daughter were unable to find the White House because they could not understand his directions. He did let us off at the White House so that they could see it. This resulted in a costly cab fare to Union Station. The
It was a good tour for the money...

It was a good tour for the money. But it didn't stop at Jefferson Memorial as advertised That was the one I really wanted to see., and the tour ended about a half-hour short of the advertised 4 hours. Also, the driver had a heavy accent and it was difficult to understand him sometimes. Otherwise, he hit most of the spots and was very knowledgeable. And at the end, he offered us various points where he would drop us off so we could see other monuments. Another positive: It was raining heavily and he had umbrellas available for us to use.
