DC in a Day
lori_s, Jul 2023
Our drivers knowledge of all things DC was amazing and the way he shared it was perfect for my son who was visiting DC for the first time . Awestruck by the beauty of the monuments and the significance of the sacrifice at the war memorials . It was certainly a great cliff notes version of a taste of the city as we were limited on time

Great Tour of DC
Carol_B, Jul 2023
Charles, our tour guide was excellent! Very knowledgeable and obviously loves his hometown. He was extremely kind and thoughtful in helping my husband, a disabled Vietnam Veteran, getting his walker on and off the tour bus. We saw all the major sights in air conditioned comfort and Charles pointed out other lesser known buildings and sites as well as interesting stories and background on so many things. We were extremely pleased beginning with the ease of finding the start off point with plenty of parking areas.

Don't Go.
David_R, May 2023
I booked the tour online and Viator send me the address of 400 New Jersey Avenue SW. We found a suitable parking near by and went to the meeting place. We waited from 930am to 11 am. We called the number listed in the instructions and confirmed the pickup place was correct. We were informed by other tour buss operators the your big buss tour did not come to that area of town. We walked about oneile to the front of the capital in DC and followed the Big Buss tour to a stop. We wasted all morning
Response from Host, May 2023
Our meeting location is Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill,400 New Jersey Avenue NW.Your party went to the wrong location (SW).All information you need is on your travel voucher.

Wait timings were good to...
Debanjana_D, Jun 2022
Wait timings were good to explore and come back. But not all stops were covered. Management was really bad, they overbooked the buses and it was difficult to get seats if you didn’t come early. Seats were not guaranteed.

Horrible experienxe
Corey_B, May 2022
This tour was the worst I’ve ever been on. The guide was smart however it was hard to understand him. We didn’t see much of what we were supposed to see due to being stuck in traffic. My question is: if the guide is seasoned and have been doing this for years…how do you not anticipate that there will be traffic? Why not adjust the entire tour due to the possibility of heavy traffic. The tour was cut short and I felt cheated out of my money. I will never tour nor recommend it again
Response from Host, May 2022
Thanks for your business and review. Memorial Day happened hence the road closures.
Not for kids
Elizabeth_W, Apr 2022
Would not recommend for kids- while the tour goes to a number of popular WC DC monuments, our guide rattled off information as fast as he possibly could, as though he could not wait to be done. We understand very little of what he said. The sound system was also extremely loud, hurting my son’s ears. We got off and bailed halfway through.
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Thanks and sorry for your inconvenience
Not enough stops or time at them.
Kara_H, Mar 2022
I would have liked to make a few more stops and had more time at them. The first thing listed on the included was a water bottle we never received and couldn't have drank on the bus. I brought my kids first time in DC. We came because of the cherry blossom festival. I'm glad we were on the bus through crowds and traffic.

KathleenDell_D, Mar 2022
Beautiful sights! Driver/guide very knowledgeable! Cherry blossoms were beautiful! Would have been better to have more time at stops, but, it was sufficient.

DC Delite
Amy_D, Mar 2022
This was a great opportunity for us to take in all the sights of DC and learn important facts and history from our host driver. Highly recommend. We would have liked a bit more time at the monuments and memorials, but happy non the less that we got to see so much.

carol_g, Jan 2022

Very Good Tour of Washington DC’s Monuments
Teneshya_M, Nov 2021
Dr. Ali Zohery did an amazing job of narrating the tour. He also gave us ample time to see the MLK monument, the north side of the White House, and the Lincoln Memorial. He did a great job of controlling and managing the group.
