DC by Foot: what do users think?
Sindys Tavarez
Sindys Tavarez: My boyfriend and I took two tours in DC, and Colin’s one (Georgetown) was our favorite. He was very knowledgeable and knew his stuff. It was a mix of architecture and history which was perfect for us, because I’m into architecture/arts and my boyfriend is into history/politics. We loved it.
Joseph Neidenbach
Joseph Neidenbach: My wife and I took the Georgetown by Foot Tour led by Rebecca. Rebecca did a great job. She was knowledgeable, energetic, friendly and a great representative of our nations capital. I highly recommend this tour. The two hour walk was comfortable. We will take one of these tours the next time we are in DC.
David Matsu
David Matsu: When my wife and I visit new cities we like to take the local "Free Walking Tours." We took the National Mall/Tidal Basin tour with Rebecca and were not disappointed. She took us on a three hour walk, in the rain, and told us all about the history of the monuments. She was well informed, able to answers all questions and taught us a lot. I encourage travelers to take advantage and support the "free tours" especially with a guide like Rebecca.
Lani Slonim
Lani Slonim: This tour is well planned and well timed and was given by a guide who was personable and knew her history. Ingeborg had fun antidotes and stories that enhanced the understanding of the area in an enjoyable way. Thank you for your efforts!
Jenay Rouimi
Jenay Rouimi: We did two great Name Your Price Tours while in Washington - 2 adults and (1) 9 year old. We started with the Arlington Cemetery Tour with Colin and it was excellent. This tour does involve a lot of walking but I highly recommend it. While Arlington does have the trams, I think this tour provides a much more up close (and far less crowded) viewing. Colin was extremely knowledgeable, and he kept us all entertained and informed. We also did the Name Your Price Tour of the Monuments by Moonlight with Emilia. It was an unseasonably cold March night, but it turned out to be a wonderful experience. The monuments were far less crowded then we expected, and the night time view is spectacular and far different from day time. I highly recommend experiencing both ways. Emilia had so much interesting information on the monuments that I have never heard before and I feel much more well rounded and “in the know”.
Elaine Limanek
Elaine Limanek: My friend and I went to the Ghosts of Georgetown tour and we have nothing but good things to say! Our tour guide, Melissa, was charismatic and led us on a thrilling adventure through the streets of Georgetown, where we learned about the history and haunts of the most charming corner of DC. We truly loved every minute and will certainly be back again!

HEATHER MCMANUS: I so loved this tour and the tour guide! We did the Madams of DC tour. Completely fascinating and makes you think about what life was like for women. I highly recommend it.
Jon Psotka
Jon Psotka: We did the Madams of DC tour. As an area native I had always thought of Federal Triangle as the most boring of neighborhoods, so walking around and learning about its sordid past, right next to the Mall, was an eye-opening experience. Tour guide was fun and knowledgeable. Recommended.
Michael Terracciano
Michael Terracciano: Off The Mall Tours is an informative and entertaining walk through the hidden gems of the DC area. A must for history buffs and lovers of local lore. Highly recommended.
Sex Pistoleros
Sex Pistoleros: Great punk tour of DC.

Rebekah Diaz
Rebekah Diaz: Did the night tour with Mr Map! It was great to stop at so many places and take photos. I do wish that the tour guide would have come off the bus to tell us about the different landmarks instead of staying on the bus. It was beautiful to see all the monuments lit up—different than the daytime sights. We chose the closed climate controlled instead of open top because it was rather cold at night (in late April!)! Would recommend.
Vanessa Losey
Vanessa Losey: Thanks for making my dad bday that much more memorable! My dad a senior citizen and the pace was perfect for him, including all the bathroom breaks and patience. Thank you Terry for a tour to remember and for signing to my dad happy birthday!!! Memories to last a lifetime. His service dog loved it too!!!
Teresa Simmons
Teresa Simmons: We took the DC tour on Sunday. Nick was our guide. The tour was a great way to see the sights and learn interesting facts. Nick loves his job and it shows! He was funny and informative! Highly recommend Nick and the 6 hour DC day tour. We had and amazing time!!
Suzanne: We took the dusk to dark, open top bus tour, and it was well worth it! The small group allowed for a much more personalized experience. It was obvious to us that our guide, Nick, truly enjoys his job, and that adds to the experience. He was friendly, knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor, all of which added up to a very comfortable, enjoyable tour! He made it feel like we had a long time friend showing us the many sites. Definitely recommend this tour!
Response: Thanks for traveling with us Share you memories with us on Instagram @usaguidedtours!
Bianca Moskaitis
Bianca Moskaitis: Nick the @tourgod was one of the most amazing tour guides I’ve ever experienced! His knowledge and charisma made us feel so comfortable. He kept us laughing and on time! He was just a delightful and I’m so glad we got to experience him today! The Mercedes’ sprinter is a beautiful site to see while traveling down Constitution ave and Pennsylvania ave. Such a luxurious site to see🎉🎊 I’m so excited to take another tour with them in the spring! Here are come Loudoun VA wine country 🍷
Tricia Barr
Tricia Barr: We had a fabulous experience with Alicia as our tour guide and Thomas as our driver. We enjoyed a very informative 6-hour tour with Potomac River cruise. The best compliment was given by my ten year old daughter who is often reluctant to join historical and sight-seeing tours and would far prefer a spring break at a theme park. She said, “I learned so much about my country and I loved learning about all of the hidden meanings of the monuments.” As a parent, I was so happy that she loved the symbolism and significance of all that DC had to offer! Thank you to Alicia for your positive energy and sharing your extensive knowledge of our Nation’s capital!
Shari S
Shari S: Nick and our driver were awesome. Very knowledgeable. Highly recommend. I took borh the day and the night tour with this company. I highly recommend using this tour company. Parking can be a little difficult and further away then the tour can get you. I am so glad I signed up for these tours. I will make sure to let everyone I know going to any city they service to use them.
Response: We're so glad you had a great time! Share your photos with us on instagram!
Joseph McIntyre
Joseph McIntyre: Originally scheduled the daytime tour with the riverboat cruise. Had to change due to flight delays and a mix up with rental cars. They were very accommodating and allowed us to switch the tour last minute to the night tour. Our tour guide, Nick was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Thanks so much for the memories!
Response: Thanks for the positive feedback. We understand that the basis of travel is to embrace the unexpected. Because of this, we are always willing to reschedule. Also, if you are worried that your trip has too many variables, we offer trip insurance to cancel up to the minute before the tour for a full refund (minus the insurance cost).
Lisa Hayes
Lisa Hayes: Great tour that I would highly recommend. Curtis was our driver and nick was our tour guide. Very knowledgeable and had plenty of time at all the stops. They had just taken down the fences at the capitol so we were able to go on the lawn. We did the night tour and they picked us up at our hotel which was perfect since I had just had some foot surgery and walking was difficult. Would recommend this tour to everyone and Great price.

Delaney Gellert
Delaney Gellert: Such a cool way to explore all around DC and lets you see a lot in 1-2 hours. Getting on was somewhat confusing and you might not be with your family altogether since there are not assigned spots. The audio is okay but gives you a lot of information for when you are near tourist spots. There was only one hop off spot at the Lincoln Memorial but it is not for long so its more to stretch your legs and see the bottom of the monument. I recommend going more at night time because it nice to see the sunset on DC and was a lot cooler for when you are going in the summer time :)
Kayla Kirkpatrick
Kayla Kirkpatrick: Ms. Gale was a great driver and made sure we all had a safe and enjoyable trip! My parents and I loved our trip and would definitely recommend big bus if you want a scenic route around the city!
nailah morris
nailah morris: Love the concept of the tour! Make sure you plan accordingly so you can see all the major sights! Also listening to the headphones are a great idea they give you a lot of information! John Dickey was such a sweet fantastic driver! Overall a great experience!
Patrick Billerman
Patrick Billerman: There are several things that come to mind after using big bus tour today in Washington DC. First off the buses are designed with uncomfortable hard plastic seats. They also have plug in earbuds for you so you can listen to the commentary that has been pre-recorded. Some of the commentary is too early and some of the commentary is too late since we passed the item they were speaking about. The first go around we try to get on a bus and it was very difficult at the 10 stop of the tour route. While the busses come every 15 minutes we could not got on the first one at 11am after we waited 15 minutes for it to come, we had to stand there for another 15 minutes for the next bus. I’m just glad the weather was nice. When we finally got on a bus we had to sit In the lower seats since they have limited open air seats. These lower seats on these buses have a very bad sight lines to the monuments around Washington DC. On our last bus that we hopped on we had to sit downstairs since there were no seats upstairs in the cool air. The driver never put on air-conditioning so we were very warm and uncomfortable on the bottom level. We got off of at the next stop and walk to where we wanted to go. Don’t even get me started on that app that doesn’t work.
Ganeshan Venkatesha
Ganeshan Venkatesha: Contrary to my belief, I had best experience while making a trip between Vienna Metro and New York on 18th and 21st. I travelled in Bus for the first time in 30 years in the US. First it was very well organized. It was punctual. Inspite of many road constructional delays, the bus driver tried to maintain punctuality. I was very impressed with the driver whose name I do not know. . He is tall black very well built. He was so disciplined and professional. He never indulged in talking nor did he waste time in stops. He just stopped for 12 minutes for a single short break. Never applied breaks suddenly. The drive was so smooth at consistent speed. All in all I would prefer bus ride instead of a driving in car. The only inconvenience was that I could not reserve seats even 15 days earlier. First come first served appears good but hurts those who plan early. Hope the bus reserves at least 25% of seats for advance reservation. That would be a very good thing. Ganeshan Centreville VA
Pippela Pam
Pippela Pam: We purchased the deluxe ticket + night tour which was well worth the price. The narrators all had different levels of knowledge about DC which made for interesting rides, even if we had been by the same place. All the staff from drivers to ticket sellers were awesome! For the ticket price you can get on and off for 2 days which was a great way to get around the city. We went on the boat, Madame Tussands and the night tour which was gorgeous and loved that we all were able to use the upper deck to see the sites. We highly recommend using Big Bus tours and will definitely use again when available at other cities or when we are in DC again.
Ameet Sandhu
Ameet Sandhu: Tour is decent though I wish there was a live tour guide not an audio recording. Also the buses are old and outdated I wish there were outlets for charging. The staff could also be more friendly.

He also took us to places that we’d somehow overlooked. Great history, hysterical stories, and a slew of drinks- what more could you ask for? Do yourself a favor and sign up for one of these tours! P

Kristin Roberts
Kristin Roberts: I took a Cleveland Park Cherry Blossom Neighborhood Tour a couple of days ago and loved it! I learned so much about the National Cathedral grounds and the Cleveland Park neighborhood, even though I lived in the District for over 10 years. There were also great connections to other areas of DC on the tour that really shows the “small town” nature of DC. On top of that, Carolyn, our guide, was friendly and welcoming making sure to engage everyone in our group in conversation and asking all of our questions! I wish I had had time to take more of their tours while I was visiting, but will definitely sign up for another next time I’m in town!
Response: Thanks Kristin! It was a pleasure meeting you!
aphrodite fletcher
aphrodite fletcher: Beautiful walking tour of the cherry blossoms. Unfortunately we weren’t able to the splendor due to the bad weather a few days prior to the the tour.Our guide was very informative!
Response: Thanks for joining us, Aphrodite!
ANNE Goshen
ANNE Goshen: Carolyn was a wonderful guide for our family group of seven. We would definitely use her on our next trip to DC. And I’ve already recommended her to several friends. Thanks for perfect experience.
Response: Thank you, Anne! It was a pleasure touring with your family and I truly appreciate your review and referrals. Word of mouth is the back bone of my business! Hope to see you all again.
Cheri Wyse
Cheri Wyse: This tour is a must! Carolyn was warm and knowledgeable. The time flew by as we immersed ourselves in the history she was sharing.
Response: Thanks so much Cheri! It was a pleasure meeting you and Randy. Thanks for sticking it out in the cold with me! :)
Jill Smith
Jill Smith: My husband and I are relatively new DC locals and thought a tour would be an excellent way to learn more about our new community and we were not disappointed. We had an amazing time with Sam yesterday, as our guide on the White House & Penn Ave Architecture Tour. He was informative, engaging and great fun to spend time with. An architecture tour with the rich historical context is an interesting and illuminating way to learn about DC in that it was a designed city. I will appreciate the buildings and the area in a new way and have fun stories to share with friends. Having previously enjoyed an exceptional tour with Carolyn (Dupont Circle and Embassy Row), I would enthusiastically recommend DC Design Tours to architecture and history buffs alike.
Response: We really appreciate your review, Jill! Thank you for being a repeat customer, and taking the time to post about our tours!
Stephen Mannino
Stephen Mannino: Our family thoroughly enjoyed a DC Design Tours walking tour of historic Georgetown with our private tour guide, Sam. Sam was informative, witty, and extremely engaging over the course of our 2-hr tour. We have two teens, including one who is not easily entertained or amused and he was capable of captivating that kid for the duration. We highly recommend DC Design Tours, especially Sam!
Response: Thank you Stephen! We really appreciate your review!
Josh Torres
Josh Torres: The tour was amazing. Carolyn was nice and knowledgeable. She was sincere about the good and bad of DC, very descriptive and had great suggestions. Took time to hear our story and made personalized suggestions on other tours we should take with them. We definitely will be back to take more tours with Carolyn.
Response: Thanks very much, Josh! Hope to see you again! :)
Meghan Cocci
Meghan Cocci: We took the evening walking tour of monuments and memorials with DC Design Tours. Carolyn was a pleasure to work with - quick to respond to inquiries and very easy to book. Sam, our guide, was incredibly knowledgeable and charismatic. He kept our group of 9 (that included 5 kids) engaged throughout the tour with interesting anecdotes and stories along the way. Definitely would book again!

Yes, she definitely made the tour a 5 star! We will go with City Segway Tours next time in DC or any city we visit that they are located.
Chris VanBelle
Chris VanBelle: What a fun and informational tour. I would have loved to dine a larger tour and learned more. Wear comfy shoes, and be ready to go if it rains. It was an awesome tour!!
Imran Khanji
Imran Khanji: Did the segwey tour a few years ago and now the bike tour. Highly recommend bike tour with Tom. Bike tour allows you to go to more places and get off in more places because segweys have more restrictions. Also, highly recommend doing the tour at night.
J. S.
J. S.: It was our first time riding on segways. Our guide was very good in teaching us how to safely ride them. She also was very fun to communicate with. Overall the tour was very informative and interesting. In three hours we were able to see a lot of historical buildings and monuments
Kyle Hayes
Kyle Hayes: So much fun will do again great guide he was very knowledgeable and funny
Emily Thompson
Emily Thompson: This was an absolutely fantastic experience! Could not recommend it enough. Not only was it a great way to see a large portion of the sites, far faster than walking it all, our guide was wonderful and his commentary gave interesting context and added backstory to the sites we saw. We did the night tour and it was perfect -- cooler temperatures in the evening, sunset and later, the nightime uplighting on the memorials, was amazing! We had plenty of time at each memorial to explore and take pictures. Overall we had blast on the Segways (it was our first time riding them, but it was so easy and so fun!) We will definitely be looking to do Segway tours in other cities we visit!

Sandee Guzman
Sandee Guzman: I recently organized a group activity for my work colleagues. We are a group from New Jersey and we got together for the first time in 2 years. We have about 50 people combined from the US to Europe and Brazil. Because of our time restraint, I arranged a 4 our tour of the DC area with all the important landmarks. I reached out to Custom Tours and connected with Adam and he accommodated my group. We were connected with Debbie our tour guide and I cannot say enough about how fantastic she was. She is the sweetest person, funny, thorough in her explanations of the landmarks and made sure we saw all the sites despite the time restrictions we had. It was the perfect combination of riding on a bus and walking. My colleagues were so please with the tour especially the ones that were in DC for the first time. I am grateful that this tour worked out and thankful for Debbie. Please ask for her for her if you have a trip to DC for work or pleasure. They really cater to large groups!
Pat Flora
Pat Flora: The tour starts the Navy memorial, and our tour guide Britney started as soon as all were there....."early", which makes 100% sense, you never see common sense applied anymore however Britney was all over it. With early start Britney took her time and was informative on all points of interest along the way. You could tell she enjoyed her job and the challenge of being tested. The monuments truly have a different appearance at night. I was honored to be able to share these sites and educational memories with my family. Thank you Britney for your insight and vast knowledge of DC.
Michelle Hall
Michelle Hall: We had a great private night tour for our family group of 35. Our guide Clift was more than accommodating, helpful, nice, and knowledgeable. Would recommend this tour for anyone.
Ashley Iversen
Ashley Iversen: Had a conference in DC and wanted a fun private tour of all the great memorials with our team and Custom Tours of DC fully came through. Easy booking, great price and had a fabulous and funny tour guide, Larry! Everyone left the tour very satisfied and learned a bunch!
Mackenzie Bordelon
Mackenzie Bordelon: I reached out to Custom Tours of DC for a corporate event with tons of specifics and every single request was made without hesitation. Our group of 30 was taken on an executive bus for 90 minutes for a quick version of their tour. We we able to bring wine on board and enjoy the sights for our night tour. They were very accommodating picking us up at our dinner spot and dropping us off at our hotel. Adam was the coordinator for the entire event and he made the process seamless! 10/10 recommend for any groups coming to the DC area.
Anthony Cheng
Anthony Cheng: We had driver Leon, and guide Monti. Both were courteous and helpful, particularly as one in our party needed wheelchair assistance for longer walks. We enjoyed the dusk to night tour of national monuments, took lots of photos. Monti particularly knowledgeable with historical facts, shared generously with us. In 2+ hrs we saw all the major monuments and memorialized with photos. Worth the $$ as walking to all these would have been logistically impossible. I highly recommend this company and its service.
Shirley: Charles and Dave were in charge of our tour on a very hot day in DC. They made every effort and did a wonderful job to make our trip enjoyable and succeeded. Even though some of the things we wanted to see were closed they gave us alternative choices that were wonderful. Would highly recommend them.
Annie Ellis
Annie Ellis: Everything we hoped for and more! It was so wonderful to connect with Adam to help plan 3 days of 3-4 hour morning tours to maximize our time in DC with my elderly parents in the August heat. We were able to comfortably fit in everything we needed to see and enjoyed visiting the sites at our own pace after being dropped off at the closest spots to make things easier for my parents. We learned so much and had amazing conversations with our extremely knowledgeable and insightful tour guides Bob and Rebecca. Our driver was fantastic and attentive. My folks really enjoyed the VIP treatment. Thank you all for the first-rate experience and beautiful memories!

Andy Nichols: We were finally able to have our Washington DC trip after COVID canceled our trip in March 2020. Adam Plescia was great to work with as we put our trip on hold until March 2021. We were two families looking to get a great tour with all the history and we were not disappointed! Our DC tour was AMAZING! Bob was our tour guide and he was awesome! COVID-19 restrictions didn’t keep us from seeing and learning so much about our nation’s capitol! I would recommend Custom Tours of DC to any family!

White House Visitor Center: what do users think?
Ryan Barley
Ryan Barley: Very cool place and I wish it was advertised better. Once you find it it is a great museum, full of information about the beginnings of the White house. Also it tells of the evolution the building went throw over time. Cool artifacts that show the people who interacted with America, old house hold items that were used to entertain guests and old furniture the past presidents sat on. Pretty quick museum over all in comparison to all the other museums at the National Mall.
Danny Brown
Danny Brown: I really enjoyed the tour but the only thing that disappointed me was that the tour was not long enough. It is more or less a self-guided tour but there are a Secret Service agent in each room to answer any questions you may have. Wished we could see more but we knew that was not possible because of security concerns. We would recommend this tour.
Axel Müller
Axel Müller: Nice visitor center with much information about the White House (presentation boards, information boards, cinema show and so on).A gift shop is also on site where you can buy a lot of souvenirs and other things. At the entrance you have to pass a security check.
Chuck: Security folks friendly but professional. Tours are self guided. Facility is amazing... as one would expect of the home of our head of state. Amazing amount of history, but you have to bring your own resources, as the secret service agents, with one amazing exception, volunteered no information.
Carlos Aguiluz
Carlos Aguiluz: Great place to learn about the history of the White House. Really enjoyed the amount of artifacts that this center had, not too overwhelming if you have small kids.

branmorris21: Best way to start our DC vacation. Kareem navigated the streets with ease. And Steve was very informative on everything we were touring. They both were easy to talk to and answered all our questions without a boring explanation. The night was clear and not too busy for the beginning of the holiday weekend. Highly recommend this small group night tour. The price is worth it. Loved it. Thanks guys.
Response: We'll let the team know how much you enjoyed it - and we agree- taking our tour at the very beginning of a visit really puts it all in perspective. Many thanks for the 5 Star review!
Stephanie Matthews
Stephanie Matthews: Booked the night tour for the first evening we were in Washington DC. We arrived at meeting place to be greeted by our driver as well as the tour guide. What a wonderful informative experience for my party of three. We appreciated the small group individuality. The driver Kareem as well as tour guide Andrew Evans took the time to answer all questions for my nine year one grandson. They were very cautious when driving, provided water, device charging, and gave so much info at each stop. They allowed plenty of time to explore and even took photos of guest in front of the sites. The tour lasted over 3 hours. The tour guide would walk around with each small group etc., while the driver waited close by ready for pick up. Very impressed with details provided including personal stories and his love for his job and each monument. I would highly recommend for anyone wanting a tour of DC.
Response: Andrew is a former teacher and it shows! We truly enjoyed reading your review- we'll let the team know. Safe travels!
Andyrea Mahon
Andyrea Mahon: Cassie and Kareem were absolutely the best guide/driver we could have asked for! So knowledgeable about all the monuments. Cassie relayed information in an exciting and engaging way. I wish she could narrate all of our time in DC! They had cold water for us throughout. Kareem even went and got more ice cold water for our group when we ran low. We learned so much and didn’t want it to end. I would 100% recommend See DC tours!
Chaz Arnold
Chaz Arnold: My wife and I cannot say enough good things about this tour. First of all, the small group size provides an engaging, intimate experience that is much unlike many of the other tours we witnessed during our excursion. The driver, Kareem, was knowledgeable about the city and one of the most genuine people you will ever meet. Our guide, Kassie, was spectacular; she communicated a lot of information about the sights. On several occasions, she answered questions we had about the monuments as if she were reading our minds. Very entertaining. Seeing DC monuments lit up at night is an experience unlike any other. The travel van was comfortable and the provided water were much appreciated. Finally, we appreciated the dinner recommendation made by our guide following the tour. This experience was well worth the time and money.
Response: DC's monuments lit up at night are definitely magical. We'll let Cassie and Kareem know how much you enjoyed their Small Group Mall night tour. Many thanks for the 5 star review!
Heidi McQuade
Heidi McQuade: Ron and Edrick were fantastic! There is no way we would have seen as much as we did in the little time we were here, and we are very appreciative of their knowledge. I would highly recommend See DC Today to anyone sightseeing, especially for first timers. Note: there is still quite a bit of walking and being on your feet because you leave the van at every stop.
Response: Thanks so much for your 5 Star review - we'll let the team know! We appreciate your taking the time to share your insights with our other guests especially during the busy summer season. Safe travels!
Shari N
Shari N: Great tour! The small group format made for a fun, personal experience. Steve was a fun and knowledgeable tour guide and Edrick got us around town safely with a great sense of humor. I highly recommend this tour.
Response: We thank you for your 5 Star review. We'll let Steve and Edrick know. We are always tweaking our small group format for both our day and night tour. Come back and see us again soon!
J D: The hop on hop off night tour was amazing! Dustin was knowledgeable and was funny too! No way we would have seen all these sights on our own. Would highly recommend!
Response: Thanks so much for this review- We'll let Dustin know you enjoyed both his his commentary AND how he fit in all the sites in just 3 hours.
John Maty
John Maty: Though the longest day of year; party of 6 totally enjoyed tour. Picked this company based on STOPs at best Monuments vs others that do driveby. Prompt pickup. Our driver Dustin had a wealth of information not only of the various Monuments but other Washingtonian tidbits.
Response: We thank you for your great review of Dustin's tour - and, we agree, the longest day of the year can be a challenge in DC heat but happy to hear that Dustin kept your group moving through the Mall monuments! We appreciate your 5 Star review and we'll let Dustin know.
Ki Anna
Ki Anna: The Best tour out there. Larry was an awesome driver as he navigated thru DC .. and Steve was the most knowledgeable and professional tour guide ever! Will definitely do again.
Response: We'll let Larry and Steve know you enjoyed their teamwork! Thanks for the 5 Star review. Safe travels!
Nick Myers
Nick Myers: Amazing tour for anyone who wants a personal and fun look at the monuments of DC. Our driver Steve was professional all around and got us across the city safely, and our guide, Kory, was really fun and obviously passionate about the area’s history. I was not looking for a deeply sanitized tour with guides who sound like they’re reading off of plaques at the monuments, and fortunately that’s not what I got. I recommend this bus tour for those who like to ask deeper questions about the Capitol’s history and get immediate answers, those who want something beyond the typical tourist experience, and those who want to be truly guided through DC and its intricacies rather than simply taken to photo-ops. Excellent experience all around!
Response: Nick, Thank you for taking the time to leave such an awesome review!!! Glad to hear that you not only enjoyed your tour but the whole experience. Thanks again. Safe Travels!

Steve Miscavish
Steve Miscavish: Our evening tour with Robert was the highlight of a great trip to DC with our little ones. We booked a (same day) tour to see the monuments at night. The tour far exceeded our expectations and ended up being our favorite part of the entire trip. Our kids had so much fun that they wanted to book another tour with Robert, but we ran out of time. We really enjoyed hearing the stories and the history behind the monuments and landmarks that we saw. Robert was super friendly, knowledgeable and patient, even when our kids were asking silly questions. We had a lot of fun and would highly recommend the tour with Robert.
Response: Thank you for your wonderful review, Steve. Questions from kids, whether silly or serious, always make for a fun tour. I’m so pleased you all enjoyed so much.
Joe Leahy
Joe Leahy: Robert set up a great tour for our family and Don and Pat - our guides on bikes shared their expertise as former US History teachers from the area! This was the best way to start our week in DC. Both were informative, caring and helpful. We would do again!
Response: Thank you for your wonderful review, Joe. The pleasure was all ours.
Ashley Pedersen
Ashley Pedersen: We thoroughly enjoyed our experience with Nonpartisan Pedicabs in early April 2022. Robert and Bob took us on a tour of the monuments and memorials of the National Mall on one day, and then Pennsylvania Avenue and Capitol Hill the next day. They were extremely knowledgeable, accommodating, courteous, and fun! Robert knew just where to capture some beautiful family photos and both had significant insight into the area. It was wonderful for my children and my older parents to be able to get off their feet and just enjoy the surroundings. We saw much more than we would have been able to had we done it any other way. Robert was also very accommodating with the weather forecast, being willing to reschedule for more optimal weather. He was very willing to answer any questions I had about DC and gave advice on what to see and how to get there. In my opinion Nonpartisan Pedicabs is the ultimate way to tour DC, and we were very happy to be able to enjoy their tours. Thank you Robert and Bob!
Response: Thank you for a wonderful review, Ashley. Bob and I both enjoyed spending time on tour with your family. I am a pleased that everyone enjoyed so much.
Reginald Julius
Reginald Julius: May 5, 2022, Nonpartisan Pedicab Tour Prior to visiting Washington DC, I scheduled a Nonpartisan Pedicab tour. Our tour started from our Hotel, The District by Hilton. We had no plan of where we wanted to start. We had a discussion of which memorials we wanted to see. Robert our tour guide kept our desires in mind and our tour was underway. My wife and I quickly realized Robert is extremely knowledgeable of not only the monuments but also the history of Washington itself. We were able to stop and walk about each Memorial visited. Robert gave us a detailed narration concerning what we were about to visit. Our tour traveled the length of the National Mall ending at the White House. I highly recommend this tour as it proved to be informative by a very gifted guide. Thank You Robert for a fantastic day!! Our meal at The Old Ebbitt Grill was delicious.
Response: Thank you, Reggie, for a wonderful review. It was truly my pleasure to conduct your tour of Washington DC. I’m so pleased you and your wife enjoyed.
Anupurba Roy
Anupurba Roy: I used this service for a tour of the Tidal Basin with my 69 year old arthritic mother who struggles to walk long distances. Our guide Reed was not only very knowledgeable about DC and the monuments on the National Mall, but he was extremely considerate about helping my mother in and out of the cab and helping us take photos. Going around by pedicab is the perfect way to see the monuments relatively up close for people with accessibility issues. It is of course expensive, but in my opinion worth it for your loved ones with mobility issues. Highly recommend.
Response: Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Anupurba. It’s always our goal to provide accessibility to all the memorials in the nation’s capital. I’m so pleased that you all enjoyed the tour.
Carolyn Rathburn
Carolyn Rathburn: Celebrating mother’s 94th birthday during peak cherry blossom week. This was the perfect gift for parents to enjoy DC without the stress of crowds and mobility issues. Robert met us in a convenient location for drop off and pick up and where we could park. He provided a personal tour of monuments and tidal basin. They loved it! Thank you.
Response: Thank you, Carolyn, for a wonderful review. It was my pleasure to tour the monuments with your parents. I’m so pleased the enjoyed the tour so much.
Kelsey Castro
Kelsey Castro: This tour was the highlight of our trip to DC! Robert helped us set up the tour the night before and recommended a central/easy location to park downtown. We loved learning about the history of the area.This was a great way to see the national mall/monuments with our dog on a hot day.
Response: Thank you very much for your wonderful review, Kelsey. I had a great time on tour with you all today.

C.B. Ballew
C.B. Ballew: Loved the Night Tour! Pick a day when the weather is in the low 70’s - it was perfect! The driver was really nice and helpful. The route the bus takes is organized so that you see a Georgetown and buildings that you need to see in the light before the sun goes down. Then you travel to the Lincoln Memorial and the Reflecting Pool as night falls. Perfect!! Take this tour - no downsides at all.
Response: C.b. Ballew, reviews like this give us motivation and help us ensure we provide high-quality care.
Ashley Beth
Ashley Beth: Fabulous tour and a really fun and informative way to see the DC area! The signage and pickup locations were clearly marked so we knew right where to go (to get on the bus and at any of the drop-off points as well). They had headphones for our family of five and the info on the narration was interesting, relevant, and entertaining. The bus departed on time and returned on time. Ms. Gale was an outstanding tour guide and she knew all the fun, quirky tidbits of information that made our night tour of the DC area extra special. Highly recommend!
Response: Thank you Ashley! So informative and helpful. We loved having your family on board with us!
Holli Allen Magill
Holli Allen Magill: What a fabulous experience. These friendly and very accommodating people really go out of their way to make sure you have the best experience. Frederick was so kind and helpful.. Our bus driver even dropped us right at our hotel! Thanks for a great time, definitely recommend this tour.
Response: We are so happy you enjoyed the experience. Thank you for pointing out Frederick's service to your group. He is one of the groups of stars that shine bright for us. Please come back and visit with us again!
Jamie Lowe
Jamie Lowe: We had a 2 day pass and evening tour. All experiences were great! Highly recommend evening tour. A beautiful glimpse of the city and all its landmarks. Staff was friendly and helpful. Gregory at Spy Museum stop was super friendly and entertaining. A shout out to Romero who remembered my grandson at every stop he saw us…both days! Romero made him feel like he had a friend in an unfamiliar place. Great experience for us!
Response: Jamie Lowe, we are so pleased you enjoyed your visit to Big Bus Tours Washington D.C.!
Miranda: I bought the Groupon that included hop on and hop off for 48 hours and a night ride tour! Worth every penny! Easy to use. You go to one of the stops to have them print your tickets and then you can start riding. Download the app because you can see where the buses are in real time. We waited on more than 20 minutes at a stop for another bus to arrive. The bus wasn’t crowded at all. They supply headphones to listen to a recording about the monuments as the bus passes them. The night tour was awesome!! Easiest way to see the parts outside of Washington DC such as the pentagon, Georgetown, downtown Arlington. Be sure to tip your driver!! 💵
Response: Miranda: We are so grateful for your experience. We especially appreciate the detailed information you left here. It was a pleasure to read your kind review. Take care and we look forward to seeing you again.
Greg Burkett
Greg Burkett: Vida was a great tour guide on our bus. She took family photos of us and gave us tips when asked of DC food and sites.
Response: Greg!!! These photos are absolutely beautiful. You have a real gift! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your wonderful experience with your family. Vida is a true professional in our employ. We are glad to have her!!

Nahal Robertson: Discover DC Tours led a fantastic tour of the Monuments & White House for my out of town guests during my wedding weekend. They arrived on time to the hotel to pick up my guests. My guests loved the experience! The tour guides were friendly and engaging. They made history fun. I definitely recommend this for any future wedding couple with out of town guests.

Great for family great for kids I highly recommend two thumbs up! Service: Private tours
