Visit memorials to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and take time to walk around the Korean War Memorial, the Vietnam War Memorial, the Vietnam Women’s Memorial, the World War II Memorial and the Iwo Jima Memorial.

You’ll have plenty of time to snap photos of the U.S. Capitol building and the White House, and the route route passes by the Washington Monument and many of the Smithsonian museums. Finish your tour in the heart of Washington, DC, near some of the city’s best restaurant, bars and attractions.

The guide was amazing & informative. She really knows her history. Driver was friendly. It rained outside for some of the tour, rained inside the bus toward the end of the trip. I would certainly recommend this tour to anyone coming to this area. Well worth the cost. Thanks for a great time.

This is a fantastic tour of the National Mall and surrounding area. Sally provided an amazingly comprehensive historical commentary. She is very knowledgeable and professional. Donell did a terrific job of negotiating the traffic and ensuring a warm van to return to on a cool day. He called to confirm with me that he was on his way. This is truly the highlight of my visit to DC and an experience that I will never forget.

Bad start as we were not picked up at our hotel. You corrected that by sending a car to bring us to the bus. Once at the bus the tour was great as was Sally. Would recommend to everyone.
They didn't pick up in my hotel I we couldn't lake the tour.

When I Paid at 5:30pm today october 8th, they send me the voucher with the instructions to pick us up in my hotel at 7pm to go to the US Army Memorial where the time of the tour start it would be at 7,30pm. We waited at the hotel till 19:40, 40 minuts, and no one picked up us. So we couldn't make the tour and we lost time of our day in Washington :(. I hope you refund me the money.

Make sure you do not use these tours, there are at least three parties involved. I was never picked up and its nobody’s fault. Three hours on the street waiting to be picked up misinformed. Fixing the problem??? Forget it! A very bad option for tourists and lousy way to spend your only night DC.
