Your guide was good. It was just too cold to be enjoyable. The wind was 22 mph and no side curtains. This would probably be a great summer trip.

Elizabeth was excellent! We are from Frederick Md but we had out of town family who wanted to do a tour. My sister has a French exchange student and Elizabeth, a French major, eagerly volunteered to take our group. She was an excellent interpreter and educator. We all learned a lot. I would highly recommend!!!
Fun DC tour

I’m so sorry I forgot our drivers name because she was wonderful! She was full of interesting information and wanted to make sure we were having a great time. She was successful!
Great way to see the mall

Great way to see the mall. Interesting stories by guide. Would not be possible on foot in one day. Great value
Perfect way to tour the area
, Nov 2021
Was a great way to see all of the monuments and sites. Our tour guide, Roy was great and informative. So glad we found it and the weather was perfect! Worth every penny as we had no idea the area was so massive and it was a packed 2 hours. Would suggest this to anyone wanting to see the area and then you can figure out all the museums/sites you want to go too after. Thank you for a great tour Roy!
Great “day 1” overview of the mall
, Nov 2021
Tour was extremely informative and helped us get a lay of the land on day 1. I would recommend taking the tour early in your trip so that you can select the museums and monuments you want to go back to.
Great activity!

Don’t lug your bags, ride in style!
, Nov 2021
We had just a few hours in DC and had heavy backpacks with us. We met a couple on the train on the way in who said they always book this tour for out-of-town guests. So we got lucky and grabbed a spot. Sam was an amazing tour guide. He researches various places and changes up his script periodically, he said. He’s made it his own. The cart holds 7-8 but my son and I were the only ones riding that day. We were able to get a great overview and so many pics of many sites, with our backpacks bucked into the seats on the cart while he watched them while we walked around at some of the stops. It was a 2-hour overview and just what my teen and I needed for the day. Thanks, Sam, for the excellent tour!!
