Tour was great but our bus had to wait for two individuals who decided to be late for more than 30 minutes.

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.

We had a wonderful time at the Cherry Blossom trip, though most of the blossoms were gone. Aaron, the tour guide was so helpful, and the the driver was very careful. I couldn't ask for more. The customer service was very accommodating. I had to make several changes and add ons, and they were very willing to help. I will definitely recommend this to my friends.

Cherry Blossoms were beautiful, but wish we could stay longer than just an hour and a half. Washington DC is too big for just an hour and a half. The travel was over 10 hours so It makes more sense to stay in Washington overnight and make it a 2 day tour. For $22, you get what you pay for, so if you don't mind spending over 10 hours in a bus just to see a small piece of Washington for a few minutes of time, then maybe it's not so bad. The driver was a safe driver, but I think too slow going both ways and they make us change buses without really warning us about that because no one was prepared to remove all of their belongings when we made our last stop for dinner. I think this tour will be much improved if it was planned more professionally (organized) and if it was for 2 days and not just 1. I would pay more money for it to be 2 days. I think the tour guides are pretty good too, but I think the company does not help with the way they manage this particular tour. It would still help if the tour guides prepared the tourists to take all the belongings with them for switching buses.

The one day tour to Washington DC was fun. Unfortunately, we missed the cherry blossoms as they were over a week ago. But all other important tourist spots were covered well!!

I recommend this tour!

The one-day tour to DC was wonderful. Daniel Lei was our tour guide and he was very courteous and friendly. He was translating all the instructions and information to Chinese as well. I took the tour around April end and it was a little late and the flowers started to wither. I would recommend taking this tour from March to early April. The tour might be a little tiring as the itinerary is squeezed to fit in a day. However, it's a good value for money($22) even if we could not get inside the White House or the Capitol Building. Definitely recommend this tour.

Good one day trip which covers most of the important destinations. The cruise too is quite a long one and can be done away with spending more time at the Lincoln, Jefferson memorials. Tour guides Jason and Kris were quite courteous but their English communication was just about ok.

Totally worth the money, we got to see the beautiful cherry blossoms. Our tour guide, Kevin was very nice and kept us well informed about where we were going. Most of all, we were lucky enough to have all the other passengers who always arrived on time at the given time. The only downside was the heavy traffic in D.C. It's a tightly packed itinerary, so we arrived to Flushing around 12:30 am. You will be exhausted by the end of this trip, but I would recommend to anyone. Have fun!
