I wanted to take my brother, who was visiting me for couple of days. With time limitations and with a wish to take him to important places in DC, I was hard pressed on time. This 1-day tour was perfect. We visited all the important places, the tour was informative, the guide was very friendly and gave historic info at all sites, the tour had nice breaks in between for rest room and food. I would recommend this tour to anyone, who is hard pressed with time and wants to visit DC in 1-day. Thanks.

Considering doing a tour of Washington's sights in one day is a huge task, this was fantastic. I was surprised at the time we had at the places visited, thinking that mostly we would just drive past. The stops were well-spaced. The guide was friendly and very informative, and the bus reasonably comfortable. Highly recommended, and not expensive.

We really enjoyed this trip. Our tour guide was very professional, funny, and had so much knowledge. I learned a great deal on this tour. The only thing I would point out, is that it's actually about a 5 hour drive there and 5 hours back- by the time you factor in a break stop and traffic, it seems to go fast. I would recommend this tour if you don't have a lot of time to spend in Washington.

A number of us had just a whole Sunday free in New York and decided on a day trip to Washington DC. I must say this trip was 100% fantastic....thanks to the professional guide and excellent service was all we got. Special Thanks to "Francisco" for being so polite, courteous and knowledgeable. I would recommend this one day tour to anyone...worth it!

One-day sight seeing is not enough to feel Washington, DC. The trip was okay as it features some important sites. Though, it can improve its selection of places to visit or spend more time on.

Maybe one day is too short to visit Washington D.C. from New York City- I think with more time we could have visited more interesting points for longer periods of time. If you want to visit the main attractions, it would be OK.
