What People Are Saying About Capitol Hill
Everything was perfect: Met when and where specified, and left on time, in a nice, comfortable van with great viewing. Driver did great job. The guide, Liam was extremely knowledgible and entertaining! We were able to see and/or visit all the top historical sites, which were described and narrated in detail by our guide. Would definitely recommend this tour, and will be booking with Get Your Guide again when I get back to DC this spring.
This was a great tour! My daughter and I had a wonderful time visiting the monuments and learning from our very informative tour guide, Paul. We thought the boat ride was unnecessary, however we used it as a time to take a break and relax!! Thank you for a very special time learning about our country and it's history; Christine & Marsha (mother/daughter team)
Thank you for the respect for having children on the tour. This has been the most enjoyable and educating trip I have been on. We had told others and they had taken the same nights later and had the same experience. Well done.
This was an excellent tour, very informative without being too much information to take in. We did this tour on our last night (5th night) in Washington DC and we should have done this first up, before exploring the sights again in length at our leisure during the day. The bus was extremely comfortable with more than enough time at each of the stops to take the night time photos. Our tour guide commentated himself (no voice recording here!) and had lots of little bits of interesting things about Washington DC that we hadn't learnt from other day time bus trips we had already done prior to this. Well done DC Tours!
Our tour guide Andy was great. He was funny, knowledgeable and a good sport. The full-day bus tour is a comprehensive tour of all of the great gems of Washington, D.C. Amongst the war and presidential memorials, the river boat ride along the Potomac, and the White House and the capital, riding along on this tour 6 hours in Washington DC removed the stress, anxiety and confusion out of finding each historical site. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The bus was comfortable and heated, and lunch is offered for a small fee. Bring cash to tip your tour guide and the river boat captains.
