We had a wonderful tour with Joey! She was knowledgeable, engaged, funny, friendly and a terrific host. We highly recommend this tour. Our only regret is that we didn't have another day to spend in DC sightseeing! - Brittany W.
Thoroughly enjoyed our you, Brittany and Marcus were great! It was raining off and on all day but we still had a great time, they were energetic and thoughtful and attentive all day and gave us great info and tips. The tour was well planned and efficiently run. I was so glad we didn’t have to walk in the rain or try and drive around ourselves in it. I was a DC native for a few years and I’ve walked these memorials in the past, I would say the bus is the only way to go and those luxury buses are much nicer than the trolley style. - Eric M
Did it on my first day in DC and gave me ideas on what to revisit or what other venues to go to. The guide Christopher was very knowledgeable and came over excellently. - Russell P.
Very nice, John our guide, was an amazing host! He educated us on the history of each site we visited. He is engaging and kept us entertained. John and our driver Marquette were outstanding.
Christopher was amazing! The coolest guide ever. He made the DC trip a highlight of my trip!
Had a tour of DC yesterday with nick and was great . Very informative and funny.
We use luxury tour buses that are climate-controlled and offer comfortable and pleasant touring experience, as well as protection from weather elements. Our tours can accommodate all group sizes with a fleet of vehicles ranging from SUVs to premium Motor-coaches. This flexibility allows our private tours to be tailored for couples or groups as big as 50 in a single vehicle. In favor of keeping our public tours more intimate, however, we cap our tours with an average of 30 guests per group.
We do our best to keep large, same-party groups together on the same bus, but please remember that the seating is assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Once you claim your seats – they’re reserved only for you for the duration of the tour.
Convertible buses switch from open-tops to glass-tops between Oct 15 – Mar 15 due to colder temperatures.
