We took the tour on our first afternoon in town. It was the perfect length of time. Each nugget of information shared was insightful. Nothing seemed overly canned, but appropriately spotted with humor. We had ages of 14-70 in the group. All thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Our guide, Steve, was a wonderful source of information...very knowledgeable and entertaining. He had our 10 Year old grandchildren totally engrossed in the tour. Best of all, he summarized every monument with a brief "take away" that they could easily remember. Would totally tour with him again!

What a fantastic tour! We had a couple hours in the morning dedicated to sightseeing so we decided to be efficient and take a 10:00am to 12:00pm tour. I’m so glad we did. Tim, our guide, was outstanding! He was engaging, very knowledgeable, courteous, and articulate. If you want a guided overview of the monuments, memorials and museums, I highly recommend taking this tour... and I especially recommend Tim! Thank you!

This tour was a great way to see all the main sights of DC in a couple of hours. Our tour guide Steve B was fantastic - very knowledgeable and made the tour lots of fun. I was on the tour with my husband, our 2 teenage children and my 80 year old dad and we all really enjoyed it. It's a great way to get an overview of the city and find out where things are. The weather was fab which meant the cart was an ideal way to explore!

This is the first thing we did which orientated us to the city and helped us to see a quick view of the sites. Then we decided where we wanted to spend time and knew how to get places. Our guide, George, was great and very knowledgable of his city. Definitely a great wait to start your vacation.

If you have never been to Washington D.C. then I highly recommend doing this tour the first day there. Sasha was our tour guide and she was great, doesn't get any better than a history major tour guide! Hearing about the history and seeing it really made it a great experience. My family talked about the tour for the rest of the trip!
