Good Choice

This is the 3rd Time I have used this company for the monuments tour and it was still a great choice. Cassie was knowledgeable and the driver was so helpful with my husband's walker. This tour is so complete you will feel like you have seen everything in one day.

Cassie and Chris were amazing. A+ This tour is perfect for first time visitors to Washington D.C. since you get to see all the important monuments. The boat ride was nice and relaxing but we didn't really see anything while on it that we didn't see earlier. Make sure to bring comfortable shoes as there is quite a bit of walking but it is definitely worth it.

Great 1st Washington D.C. tour experience.

Dewayne was a very knowledgeable tour guide. He knew details about things that weren't on our tour and made our experience both fun and very informative. Kris was a great driver and very pleasant. The day of our tour, at 12:30 pm the heat index was 106 degrees, but there was plenty of bottled water available to keep us hydrated and the bus was always nice and cool. I don't think I could have asked for a better tour for my daughter's and my first Washington D.C. trip. Will definitely us this tour service for our next trip to D.C.
