The experience was very good, the guide was excellent. It gave a lot of information in detail. The bus wasn't the most important and the internet on board wasn't the best. One of the drivers lay down in the back seat to sleep and unfortunately snored very loudly which bothered him. otherwise very good

I give them only four stars for the following reasons. the excellent driver, the trip in terms of the places we visited excellent and beautiful and wonderful. The excellent translation, the excellent EDUARDO guide with a pleasant way of explaining each and every one of the stories of such important places and monuments. (Thank you Eduardo, you are great). the only point I'm not giving them 5 stars is because "the bus seats are to break your spine" horrible. otherwise thank you for this beautiful experience.

You can see all the important sights in Washington, although in my opinion the stay at the various memorials was too long. Both drivers and our tour guide Steven were very friendly. As Germans, we were part of an English-speaking tour and could understand Steven very well. Unfortunately, the journey (4.5 hours including a 30-minute break) is very long, and the air in the bus was dry and bad. In the end, however, we were rewarded with a surprise: After a small detour via New Jersey, we had a great view of NYC at night.
