This tour was great the first day- I enjoyed the inside tour of Capitol Hill with enough time and was felt two hours was also enough time at the museum. The hotel was comfortable/nice enough. The second day was very rushed though... Our tour guide almost left my group behind and we weren't even late.. The tour should give more time at the memorials and in Philly- especially on a weekend when we couldn't do the engraving and printing tour. Our bus was back in Chinatown at 4:30, where it was estimated to be back at 8pm according to the itinerary..

I recently booked this tour to Washington D.C in depth tour with four of my family members. It was a very good experience. The tour guide was very informative. For the price the accommodation was very reasonable . However, there is not much option for vegetarian which we understand . So a little tip is to bring your own food. Other than that everything is very good. I recommend it to all of my friends.
