Don_P, Aug 2023
The entire trip was memorable. I am very happy that I could share the experience with my granddaughter. One insignificant but unusual item I had never seen before was the water fountain(s) at Arlington Cemetery specifically designed to let visitors refill their water bottles instead of having to purchase water.
Terrific Tour!
Carol_D, Aug 2023
We enjoyed our DC Highlights tour tremendously! Our guide, Jana, was very friendly and knowledgeable. Our driver, Cory, was safe and courteous. Registration was easy. The vehicle was spotless. The tour began on schedule, and we had ample time at each stop. This was a fabulous way to see the major monuments and memorials and to get a glimpse of the city and other sites we’d like see. Can’t wait to spend some time in the museums, galleries, etc. DC has so much to offer! Just wish we had more days in our visit, so we could see it all!
We had an amazing time,...

Martin Luther King monument and all the army soldiers that was killed fighting for the country and much more.
Definitely recommended!
Saranya_E, Jul 2023
Overall, the tour was good. They covered most of the important places in matter of 6 hours. The tour guide & the driver were very nice. This tour is a good choice if you are wanting to check out monuments & memorials in shorter span of time but be ready to walk.
Very good

History Filled Tour!
Tina_B, Jun 2023
Brittany shared some great history with us, kept us on-track and hydrated! She was very helpful and shared information on getting around the city. No way we would have been able to see all the sites and monuments in one day without using their tour. I highly recommend!
Very good tour
Marlene_S, Jun 2023
Just a very good overall tour. Just the right length. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable plus coach we traveled in was very comfortable.
Excellent tour and knowledgeable guides!
Lindsay_J, May 2023
Tour was excellent. Raul (tour guide) and Ronald (driver) did an amazing job giving us plenty of information and historical facts about each thing he pointed out. He made note of a ton of cool things along our route and was quite pleasant to listen to. Very knowledgeable and made the whole experience very pleasant. We would not have been able to see half of the memorials/monuments, etc. without this tour. It is definitely worth the money!
Aissatou_N, May 2023
It was a nice tour, the guide was perfect and provide much insight about the history of DC and important sites. We were lucky to enter the president's church.
Awesome tour!
LORI_H, May 2023

Marilyn_H, Apr 2023
Cost too Much!! Tour guide from another company had more information than ours. Started listening to the other tour guide!! Felt rushed!!
Response from Host, Apr 2023
I'm sorry you had a poor experience. Would you be able to contact us and let us know the tour guide's name? We would love to follow up with them, offer training, and discuss their future with us regarding these critiques but I am unable to make meaningful changes without knowing the name of the staff in question. We could give you a small refund for your assistance. You can reach us at reservations@usaguidedtours.com
