DC’s secret gem tour guide

I loved the “wit” and personality when our guide (JR), told a story and shared details that aren’t necessarily common knowledge of the history of DC. The perfect tour and tour guide. A lot of fun. The bonus was he had a great “radio” voice!

Being able to go to the top of the Lincoln Monument. You can see all the way across the mall. However I wish we had more time to look at the other memorials and monuments

Amazing Guide, Ryan!! Loved the tour and the 30 minutes to check out the Korean & Vietnam memorials as well as the Lincoln Memorial. Our tour included the Arlington Cemetery tour (which was a bit misleading just because it wasn’t part of the actual tour— we were to find our own way to the Cemetery & fend for ourselves).

This was an amazing tour. The tour guide was so funny and knowledgeable. He was also a exceptional driver. Having to maneuver such a large trolley in DC traffic and narrow roads. He was also very flexible since so things were blocked off. Anyhow, the tour was amazing, everything went smoothly and I enjoyed everything ❤.

When I called before making reservations I was told there would be a parking lot to park in, never said it was a structure at an additional cost. Also we talked about addtl pkgs and I picked gold. She didn't say I needed to get to Arlington myself for a tour. We were only in town for afternoon and never made it to Arlington. Spent $50 more than I needed to. People checking us in and tour guide Buckeye were great.

Thank you for sharing your experience. We are glad to hear Buckeye was great. You should contact Viator directly with information you have provided referencing the Arlington National Cemetery.

Excellent tour to see major sites and learn facts
Charlotte
, May 2021
Tour was excellent. We saw the major sites from the trolley and learned very interesting historical facts by our driver, JR. also appreciated the opportunity to stop for 30 minutes to see the Lincoln Memorial and surrounding other ones. Only suggestion - have a narrator along with the driver. JR was great and did not have any “dead time” speaking, I just think it would be helpful to the driver.

We are so delighted that you enjoyed your tour with us and look forward to your return. We love sharing the history of this great nation of ours.
