This tour is a great way to see the sights in DC. Loved being able to get off and take our time walking around the monuments. Buses come back every 20 minutes...if we needed more time we waited for the next bus. Highly recommend this tour to see the sights. The recorded narration gave lots of interesting facts.

This was a very good experience and way to see all the sites you’ve come to DC to see. We rode the bus on two consecutive days and got off and on with no trouble. The earbuds and commentary pointed out all the buildings so you knew when to get off.

Very well. The course was very interesting. It's great to be able to get off and on the bus wherever you want. Better to do the activity over 2 days to do everything, it all depends on what you want to see. I recommend for a condensed visit to Washington.
