Jonathan was our tour guide and he is one of the best guide I encountered so far. During the trip he continued to feed us with all relevant info and kept us engaged all along. He stopped at regular interval and let everybody know his full-day programme including breaks and repeated the same time to time so that you remain relaxed always. He took us to all the important tourist spots and sometimes accompanied us and sometimes let us enjoy alone. He remembered everybody's name!!! On top of all, if you have one spare day the day trip from NYC to Washington DC is a must as you would see many things that you knew life long. Just one point for improvement - the glass holders attached in front of seats should be cleaned properly and the seat covers looked old and should be replaced at some regular interval. In summary, EXCELLENT tour - content-wise, experience-wise and money-wise.

It was a long day, starting early in the morning and ending late at night, nur it was worth it. Never thought you‘re able to see so much on just one day. A very great experience. Our Guide Jonathan was very politly, helpfully, humorously and on the balls during the whole trip.

It is a very long trip. It takes 5 hours to get to Washington DC. The stop at the museums is far too short to have a chance to visit at least on of them. The second World War cemetery could be avoided to have more time at the museums.
