Great tour guide!/ longer than expected
, May 2022
Our tour guide was amazing. Interesting and fun in all the best ways. We asked her to bring up her volume all the way for our hearing impaired daughter and she was more than accommodating. The weather was amazing and we had a great time. Our flight was delayed which caused us to miss the original tour, but even though we were outside the 24 hr cancelation window, I emailed and they immediately moved us to the time of our choice. Be aware that while it is listed as a 90 min tour, it is actually 2 hours, including the 30 min at the Lincoln Memorial stop. Thank you!
My View of Tour
, May 2022
It was a good tour with a lot of information provided. I would say that it would have been nice if we could have closer parking to the memorials. I’m disabled with limited mobility and that made it hard
Never knew Lincoln had that gig before he was President
, May 2022
Learned so much about the history of DC, including that little known fact about the license Lincoln held. The memorials were beautiful and touching. So glad to have had that time at the Mall to take it in. Great tour!

Korean War memorial was...

Korean War memorial was fantastic. Driver was excellent gave out much helpful information.overall city tour was very good.
Don't buy the Arlington tickets with this tour
, Apr 2022
Charles was great! Entertaining and very informative. I gave the rating a 4 because I purchased my trip with a visit to Arlington Cemetery, once our tour was over the cemetery was closing. So I wasted $15 for 6 adults. $90 might not be much to some people but to me it was a waste.
