TIME WELL SPENT WITH ZOHERY TOURS
Oct 2021 • Couples
This was our first visit to Washington DC and chose tours according to what we wanted to see and the reviews written by other travelers. We chose Zohery Tours and was certainly pleased that we did. Ali made history come to life with his wealth of knowledge and the answered all our questions. He gave detailed information about every site and more. We had ample time to visit each stop and his bus was comfortable and clean. I wish we had time to take all of MR. ALI ZOHERY'S TOURS..Five stars is not enough, I'd give him 10.

So much information!
We had a great day (in the rain) touring the city and stopping at monuments. Ali (owner and our driver) knew all about the DC area, citing facts and pointing out landmarks almost the entire drive. My favorite part of the tour was not looking for parking or running through the rain to find our car. The bus stopped, we jumped out and saw all we wanted and the bus was waiting for us to hop back on.

The city itself was disappointing. The White House is practically hidden from view and the chain link fencing everywhere made me sad. But it’s my Capitol City and I wanted to see it, good, bad and ugly.

My Vernon in the rain was not ideal and we didn’t have near enough time on the grounds but saw what we could with a driver waiting for us. Ali took the tour with us, pointing out what he could. While in the house you cannot speak even with a mask on because of COVID protocols. We ate at the restaurant on site after our tour and it was so good!

Absolute sham
Apr 2021
I booked the tour only because it promised the mount vernon house tour from inside. I was not getting this on the actual site mountvernon.org as it was totally booked for that day april 3,2021. after a very messy day tour with it being switched with two different drivers and they taking us the few of the same places and wasting our time, not to mention the first lady kept forgetting dates and places. thesecond one had a very think accent and couldnt be understood over the mike, we managed to reach mount vernon by 3:30. At this point Mr zohary talks to the entry person and says to us the tickets are sold out because of todays rush and covid. which was totally not true. they were sold out for weeks in advance. we felt cheated and since we were verbally upset with him, he made us stand in line there for another half an hour to see if the people there will have pity on him and let us in. Not to mention all this time we hadn't had lunch because he had mentioned that lunch will be at mount vernon. after some discussion we decided not to keep standing in line and at 4 we decided to rush and see whatever estate we can since it closes at 5.
we rushed back to the snack shop but it was already closed at 4:30. my kids were thirsty and not had any food since morning. thank god we though of putting some granola bars in the morning. this was an absolute waste of time. we felt totally cheated. Absolute sham. Same on Zohary tours

Refund is absolutely rejected. I’ll address all the points of complains. Let’s start with main issue which was no entry to George Washington house. In our Advertisment as shown below, we claimed that we don’t guarantee that customers can go inside the mansion of George Washington ( we’re introducing The Day tour, a combination of the grand tour and the Alexandria & Mt Vernon tour. After you experience the sight of the monument in their resplendent beauty in Washington DC, you will go on next to visit Alexandria landmarks and the treasured George Washington Estate in Mt Vernon. After seeing some of Washington DC top landmarks on your way to Old Alexandria, you will view the George Washington monument and other tourist sites. The main attraction of this tour will be the Mt Vernon home of George Washington where you’re going to have 2 hours or more visit at the plantation. it’s going to be an audio guided tour where you will listen to an audio detailing the stops and the places you visit.) Because of COVID-19 and large number of visitors during Cherry Blossom weakened, going inside the house was impossible. The Estate and the plantation of George Washington that we guarantee to visit was available to spend up to 2 to 2 and half hours in a self guided tour through audio devices or text sent to your phone covering all the buildings inside the estate. Saturday April 3, 2021 we had three buses were in operation for the Grand Tour in the morning (we had more than one hundred people) and we had one coach bus operated in the afternoon to Alexandria and Mt. Vernon ( we had 32 people) every bus had a driver/guide driving and guiding at the same time and this how we operate for the past 35 years one driver/guide operates the tour. I received three complaints from the same of this group, so far, and they contradict each other. I received a phone call one day before the tour Friday 2nd of April . I guessed she is the mother and the grand mother of most of the group members. From the 1st minute we talked, I knew this lady will look something to complain about. She asked if she can cancel the afternoon tour. I told her if she wants, she needs to do that 24 hours before the tour time. She said she knew that and she is going to think about it. I was not sure if her group is going half day or full day until Saturday morning. I promised her that I’ll reserve the front 20 seats for her group in a mini bus in the morning and if she decided to go in the afternoon tour, I’ll make sure that they will be in the front of the 20 seat of the bus. Usually I don’t do that 1st arrive to the bus 1st get in and after that we ask everyone to maintain the same seats throughout the tour. I fulfilled my promise to her and I was there myself to make sure that happen. Ms Marsha Thomas gave the tour in Washington DC in the morning and Mr. Robert Green Gave the tour in the afternoon to Mt.Vernon. Both of them, I trained as drivers/guides 25 years ago. Both of them are Afrecan/Americans native Washingtonians born, lived and educated in Washington DC all their lives. One person from this group complaint about their thick accent and didn’t understand any thing from them. The grand mother praised Robert Green by being “terrific “ During my phone conversation with the grand mother, I advised her to bring a lots of food and drinks as long as they don’t leave any trash in the bus especially they have children and elderly members in the group. I was not a tour guide to any of the buses. Every bus had its own driver/guide. I came to the buses in morning and followed the bus in the afternoon to Mt.Vernon to make sure that the operation is going smoothly especially after I talked the grandmother of this group. Absolutely, refund is rejected.
