Whirlwind day in DC - This was a great one day tour of DC. We got a sense of where things were (for visits later in the week) and checked a few things off our list. The afternoon, with time for lunch and the river cruise was a an enjoyable, relaxing way to end the day. Plus we got to see a few more things. Tyrone (our tour guide) is a long time DC resident. He was knowledgeable, funny and kept us on time. We thought this was a perfect introduction to our time in DC

Great time had by all - We had a great time. Tyron was super knowledgeable and fun to talk to. Chris was a great driver and very pleasant. We saw so much on this tour and would have never been able to see as much of DC on our own. I recommend this to anyone visiting the Capital City.

Good tour guide. Kept the group moving! - Beginning and End need some experience design. We bailed at the White House (last official stop. Tour guide was great! Bus driver had no personality. Would have been nice to see the Supreme Court, even if just a drive by. Also, suggest having a Venmo or other digital wallet option for tipping.

Ok but a hot day - The war memorials were great the tour guide and and naration was excellent. The boat ride we did not like at all. Very poor seating and the naration recording was not in sync with the location of the boat

Very Disappointing - I don’t even know where to beginning, the tour started late and we were treated as if we were children on a school trip. Everything took forever to get done. We could barely hear our guide throughout the tour and he would stand and talk in the sun. The lunch break we had made it worst everywhere needed a reservation to eat and was expensive. Last but not least the boat tour was the exact information as the bus tour. What a waste of money and time.
