Collins last day in D.C
Gary_C, Sept 2023
All of the moments were wonderful. Our driver was so knowledgable and helpful he made the tour. We would do it again.
WilliamA_H, Sept 2023
It was very difficult to follow the guide when he was saying look left or right. And by that point we had past the location we were supposed to be looking at.
Would recommend day over night
Tanika_C, Sept 2023

A Great Way to Start Your Visit
Robert_B, Aug 2023
We loved seeing all of the monuments in one day and spending time at all of the stops. We took the tour on our first day and it helped us to set up the rest of our stay and walk to the placed that most interested us. The tour guide was amazing in his knowledge of the City and the interesting facts that he presented. He also answered each question that all customers asked in the bus. What a great way to enter our nation's capital.
Unforgettable DC experience
Nitin_S, Aug 2023
The Tour guide was excellent. Very well versed with details of each places we visited. The bus was clean and loved the experience.
Great trip
Arlene_W, Aug 2023
We learned so much from our tour guide about many things, including points of interests along the way to our stops. There was a perfect amount of time to see important sites/memorials. Don't worry about any bathroom stops becasue the guide will identify these and they are very adequate at the stops. We had a 10 yr. old boy with us and he loved it too! Great picture spots!
First time in DC
Bobby_L, Aug 2023
It was my first tour of the nation's Capitol and it was a very memorable experience. Can't wait to come back with my girlfriend
Interesting but too expensive
Gommaar_D, Aug 2023
The Viator Tour is interesting, but 60 $ a person, including kids, is too expensive in our eyes. More stories and less details would be more charming.
Fantastic day tour of DC
LouiseA_K, Aug 2023
We had a fantastic day tour of Washington DC! Our driver was so much fun, super informative and a cautious driver. I would recommend this tour to other just the right number of stops and time at each stop was appropriate.
great tour option!
Valerie_L, Aug 2023
Tour guide was knowledgeble, helpful, very aware of world issues well beyond the US. He gave us fun little quizes along the way to keep everyone engaged. He was very smart. The bus was neat and clean. We learned a lot and a highly suggest this tour.
Family Reunion
Pam_O, Aug 2023
My family group of 12 was really looking forward to this tour as our first experience of DC. We thought this would give us a good feel for the city. The tour started 25 minutes late, waiting for another bus to arrive for more passengers, our bus was full. There was too much time alloted to look at the stop sites, cut it by 5 minutes per site. We were constantly waiting on two families to return to tour bus making us more late! By the time we were at our last stop of the Lincoln Memorial and Korean Memorial it was pitch black. Such a disappointment. I would only do this tour during the day, skip night tour!
Loved this night tour for a 45yr old, 13yr old & 2 15yr olds!
JocelynP_V, Aug 2023
We LOVED this tour! The driver/tour guide was so kind and patient and answered any questions and made sure that everyone was back on the bus before we left each stop. He even stopped multiple times on the side of the road and allowed us to get out to take pictures when he noticed a photo opportunity. The ride was also incredibly comfortable and the AC was working great. I would greatly recommend this tour bus, especially at night!!
Great introductory tour of Washington
Julia_M, Aug 2023
This tour was informative and fun, a perfect introduction to the important landmarks and historical places of the capitol. Craig is an excellent tour guide who has spent his life in DC, and he is an enthusiastic advocate for his city.
Great tour and guide
Muntazar_a, Aug 2023
It was a very fun experience to drive around Washington DC and learn about the history of this great city. The guide Ali Zohery is very knowledgeable and entraining. The bus was clean and temperature was very cool on a hot day. All in all, we had great time and will definitely do it again when we come back to Washington DC.
Great way to experience DC!
Kristy_G, Aug 2023
I'm so glad we decided to take the Day Grand Tour! This was a fantastic way to experience the sites and monuments around DC! The bus was nice and air-conditioned and afforded great views of the sites we drove by, and it was enriching to be able to walk around some of the monuments and sites and get to explore them in more depth. Our tour guide/driver, Paul, was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining throughout our tour. My family and I definitely learned a lot about DC!
What a wonderful tour.
Keshia_H, Aug 2023
Clearly the Dr., who gave the tour loved what he was doing. He was very knowledgeable and my friend and I enjoyed the whole tour very much!! Thank you for the history lessons on the beautiful land marks and building. I hope to join this tour again the next time I’m in town.
Great tour
Calvin_S, Aug 2023
