    Great trip to Washington, DC! Our tour guides made it great! They shared so much history on the way and during! The trip is long but it’s worth it! I’d recommend it as a day trip! You won’t regret it! P.S if you’re sick, wear a mask! I was disappointed on how some people are so inconsiderate of others!

    Tour organized very well on time and very intense because in any case after 4-30 by bus we were able to see everything well up and down the bus but it is normal. Two guides one in English very well prepared, an opera singer with a well of experience and knowledge. The Italian guide Carlo was on his second day with little experience but attentive to the client's well-being and careful to tell us anecdotes about American history. Francesca and Leonardo

    We opted for the trip in German, but we received an email 1 day before that the German tour guide was ill. However, we were offered to take part in the English one or to postpone it to 3 days later. We chose English and it was great. Our tour guide Chris did a great job and we were enriched with lots of information. Since it was Memorial Day that day, we had to wait a little at the cemetery, for example, which was worth it because we were able to meet the President. Also, you couldn't see the white house as usual. Nevertheless, it was a successful day.
