Meet the guide and the rest of the small-group at L’Enfant Metro Stop, located at the corner of 7th and C Street. Then climb aboard a nifty eCruiser vehicle — an open-air, eco-friendly electric cart that offers as much in style as it does with substance.

Then see the World War I, World War II, Korean War Veterans and the Vietnam Veterans memorial sites.

What a fun day!! We were in a car with Jonathan and had an amazing time. He was so friendly and informative and even took pics for us! I’m from the area and never had a chance to really learn the history hands on like this. I would recommend this tour to visitors and locals! And hopefully you’ll be blessed with Jonathan as your guide !

Good mix of getting out to look at monuments and driving tour. The cart was clean and comfortable. Good audio device to hear Sam while driving. Highly recommend!

We did enjoy the ride and the guided tour around some of the DC landmarks. The White House guard didn’t let us in for some reason, but thats OK. I wish the Potomac River was a bit cleaner cause the swimming was a little dangerous. Anyways, we would recommend this to everyone who has never been to DC before.

I am with child so I couldn't walk around long to see everything I wanted to see. This tour helped me see evey site I dreamed of seeing. I would recommend this tour to anyone that wants to see the sites without sending too much time and energy. It was worth evey cent. The tour guide was very nice and informative also.

Melinda was the best tour guide--she kept things fun and provided insight and interesting details I never knew! I would HIGHLY recommend this tour! Especially excellent for kids who would loose interest if they walked from location to location all day!
