Very good trip for the family. Our tour guide Jimmy Liu was very nice and very knowledgeable of the landmarks and history of the states we passed through going down to DC and DC. When we were in DC, we passed by many landmarks such as the White House, Lincoln Memorial and more. Although we wished we could get down and explore each landmark, we understood that it was a one day tour and travel time would not allow for it. We got to explore the Jefferson Memorial, saw some cherry blossoms, and had a relaxing boat ride. It was raining on and off during our trip, but thanks to Jimmy and our driver, our trip was safe and enjoyable!

Our family (5 people) booked this tour for 1 day in Washington DC from New York. The tour leader, Lillian, sent us a reminder and instruction text message a night before we started the tour. Long drive, but our family had a good time to enjoy many attractions in Washington DC.
