    I am so glad we booked this tour. Bob, our driver, was so informative and we learned so much about the beautiful city of Washington, DC. We took the tour on January 30, 2015 (husband, myself, daughters ages 25 & 12). It was so easy to just hop on and be given instructions - no worrying about parking or driving in circles wondering where to start. Bob was friendly and went above and beyond! Two of our guests headed in the wrong direction and Bob went to get them. I would highly recommend this tour. Be aware that there can be a bit of walking involved as well especially in the Capitol. We met the driver for the Mt. Vernon tour and he was very friendly and looked like a fun driver too.

    I recommend this tour!

    I took this tour with family on 26th July 2013. The driver/guide was Bob and he made it a very enjoyable experience for us. He was clinical, witty, polite and extremely knowledgeable. Even though all the landmarks mentioned in the programme were not covered, we have no hesitation in recommending this tour to any one who is visiting Washington DC and would like their money's worth in terms of sight seeing.

    I recommend this tour!

    The tour was very good with a guide who has a vast knowledge of the history of DC. If there's any thing lacking, it is the lack of time to explore each location longer.

    The tour was really good. The guide has great knowledge about DC historic landmarks. His name is Bob and he explains everything well. He is intelligent and funny too. My family really enjoyed this tour a lot. We'd love to go again.
