    Sally our guide was phenomenal! Gave us the down and dirty of historical sites of DC with accuracy and humor. Totally engaging!
    The views were beautiful at night and although very hot, the bus was comfortably air conditioned. We never could have seen all these sights on our own.
    Probably not for younger kids as tour was 3 hours but would highly recommend!
    Our driver Chris was great also!

    This is a great way to get to many of the attractions in Washington DC. Our guide was very informative and never ran out of something to say. The bottled water was very appreciated. The water cruise was also enjoyable

    Sebastian was professional, knowledgeable and friendly. He adjusted our tour when the walking portion became too much for my mother and still ensured we had a fabulous time.

    The tour was worth it! So glad we chose the half-day bus tour. A whole day would have been too much. The AC in the bus saved us from the summer heat & humidity. The driver have interesting facts about the monuments. The teens weren’t too excited so I think adding interesting anecdotes about the monuments or past presidents would have helped peak their interest.

    This full day excursion was really good organized by USA guided tours.
    BUT don't think you enter the Capitol as you don't do that with this tour.
    I think the explanation on TripAdvisor is miss leading.
    Meeting point is also not clear.
    BUT the USA guided tour operation was really well organized with water and AC in the bus with a good Guide Alicia and Ben?.. Not sure what the name of the driver was.

    We did the open-top night tour and it was perfect. The buses are very nice, comfortable, and only fit about 10 people. Our tour guide and driver Brittany was amazing. So kind, funny, and extremely intelligent. She knew things you would never learn if you were to go see the different attractions yourself. One benefit to the night tour is that it was the perfect temperature and just such a neat experience to see the monuments lit up at night.

    The tour guide, Buckeye was the best. Knowledgeable and fun personality. He deserves a Five ⭐️. Learned so much about the DC area.

    By far, the best guided tour experience of my life. Not only is it a ton of fun to ride on the Segways but the tour guides are very knowledgeable, understanding, and friendly. No previous experience riding Segways needed whatsoever, they’ll patiently train you before the tour begins and help you slowly build confidence until you feel like a pro! Best part is getting to see so much in so little amount of time, crossing some attractions off your list during the tour so you can focus on others the rest of your DC visit. This is absolutely a must, me and my family will do it every time we visit DC, no question.

    Brian was our guide. He was fun, knowledgeable and good with kids. He answered the questions well. I liked it because it’s a small car so it’s more flexible and easier to go around. Definitely recommend.

    What a great tour! Barry, our guide, was passionate, knowledgeable, and great with kids. The MLK monument was extraordinary and the guide gave us excellent background information which offered a more rich and complete understanding. 100% recommend!

    Taking a bus tour to Mount Vernon was a good idea. We didn't have to worry about parking or anything and our tour guide gave us some great information along the way. The estate itself was good, the view was spectacular.

    Fantastic tour, highly recommend especially if you are a veteran or have any military background. Our tour guide Jim was so knowledgeable & all around the perfect guy to show us around. We would’ve missed so much without his guide. Extra touch he had ice cold water for us in the extreme heat.

    We couldn’t believe how much we saw in 3 hours. It was awesome to have someone drive us to all the key places. Saves a lot of time having someone know the best route for everything. Dustin was really sarcastic and funny and we loved that. Very informative! Great experience.

    Liam was extremely knowledgeable. It was easy to find him at the meeting time, and we started on time. He had answers for all our questions and knew the town well.
