Joseph Eakle
Joseph Eakle: Visited Washington DC with a family group of 9. We had the pleasure of spending 6 hours with Aaron for 2 different tours. We did a nighttime Whitehouse Neighborhood/Monument tour and a day time monument tour. We never would have covered as much ground and learned as much as we did without Aaron. He kept everyone engaged, from the adults to my 4 year old daughter. I can’t say enough about him and the tours. They were the highlight of our trip to DC!
Response: Thank you for the kind words. It was a pleasure hosting you all - so glad you had a great trip!
Evelyn Avanesian
Evelyn Avanesian: Aaron is a spectacular guide. Fun, funny, and so knowledgeable. He kept our 8th graders engaged and well organized. Would definitely do a trip with him again! Even having lived in DC for over a decade, I saw and learned things I never knew.
Response: Thank you Evelyn! The group was lovely and we look forward to our next meeting - and a sunny day at Fort McHenry.
Tarm: Aaron took us on a 5 day trip through Washington D.C with around 25 kids. He was able to keep everyone engaged, and was able to avoid all the lines. Aaron is a great guy, super funny and very entertaining. Super knowledgeable, and had everything ready for us. Made sure we were well informed, and cared for each one of us. Our tour was awesome, visited many spots, and made sure we had the best experience. Would definitely recommend Aaron to anyone who wants a fun, entertaining and great trip!
Response: We had a blast taking Rhoades around the nation’s capital! We hope you enjoyed the steady diet of dad jokes as well.
Jessica Harrington
Jessica Harrington: My husband and I attended the Sunrise Cherry Blossom Tour today and it was the perfect way to start our Sunday morning. If you want an inspiring and educational experience complete with stunning views WITHOUT the crowd and traffic, then this is it.
Response: Early bird gets the best photos! Thanks for touring with us!
Gabrielle Chambliss
Gabrielle Chambliss: Aaron was a blast to have on our 6th grade trip to Washington. He was very knowledgeable and interacted with the kids. His planning of our 4 days made everything so much easier and we saw a lot! Will definitely book with him again!
Response: Thanks Gabrielle. We look forward to seeing Regents Academy again!
Each 1 Teach 1 Foundation
Each 1 Teach 1 Foundation: Our tour guide Aaron was with us for 4 days and was phenomenal! Not only was he knowledgeable and very personable but he also was patient with our group of 61 and flexible throughout the tours. We will be rebooking him in a different city in the near future!
Response: Big groups, small groups, we love them all. Really excited to work with you all again!
Megan Miller
Megan Miller: When I was planning our family trip to Washington DC, I researched tour guides. I interviewed five and picked Aaron. He accompanied us for 2 half days visiting the sites we had identified as important. He customized his approach and content for our group, our ages, and our interests. He never ran out of content and his delivery was warm, engaging, and so interesting. He shares information through telling stories and his level of knowledge is astounding. Our time with him thoroughly enriched our trip and I could not recommend him any more highly than I am. He is a 10 and will exceed your expectations.
Response: Thank you so much Megan! Truly our pleasure!
Ashley Alderfer
Ashley Alderfer: I have had the pleasure of experiencing 2 tours with Historic America, and both were fantastic! Aaron is a smart, engaging guide with a vast knowledge of history and a passion for his craft. He is a master story teller, and goes above and beyond to provide a rich and immersive experience. Living in Washington, it is easy to become complacent about the history that surrounds you, but Aaron is able to bring the city to life, crafting an experience that connects you with the history of the place but is also personal and intimate. I’d recommend his tour to anyone visiting Washington looking for an enriching gateway not just to the city, but to our national history.
Response: Ashley, thank you for your support and kind words about Historic America. We love touring with you.

Lisa Myles
Lisa Myles: I booked this bus company last minute for my Sons Senior prom. After searching and comparing prices of other companies in the DMV area this one was the most realistic in pricing. I rented the party bus for 5 hours and for 15 people. I must say after ready the reviews I was very skeptical but I must say with Great Surprise I could not have been more Satisfied with the entire experience. The bus operator called to confirm the time on the day before and the day of the event he even arrived earlier. He was well spoken and very pleasant and polite. He was dressed very professionally and he even gave the kids a pep talk. He congratulated them on making it this far and encouraged them to keep up the good work for their futures. He made myself and the other parents feel more at ease with leaving our kids in his hands during this very special occasion. The kids had a Great time!! They were able to make it to the Prom on time & even stopped to take Pictures beforehand!! I am Definitely recommending this Bus company to anyone who would like to have a Reliable Driver and a Great experience getting to whatever event they are Celebrating. I will be using this company to be my transportation in the future. From all the Parents and our Seniors, We would like to give Special shot out to our bus operator SEAN! You were Amazing! Keep up the Great Service!! A1
Brianne Fritze
Brianne Fritze: DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!!! Uptown Bus Company was contacted for a quote for a 40-person executive bus with black leather seats and a lavatory. A contract was executed on March 18th with the agreement for round trip services in a 40-passenger minibus with a bathroom and black leather seats for the agreed upon price. Our bus was 30 minutes late and was certainly not what the contract stated and was in deplorable condition. The bus that showed up was an old 55-passenger full size charter bus. The entire bus smelled like feces, the cloth seats were ripped and torn, pieces of the window insulation were falling off, and the entire bus was filthy dirty and overall appalling. The dispatcher (Katrina) was contacted to inform her of their mistake sending us the incorrect type of bus to which she replied that the driver must have mistakenly picked the wrong bus and she assured us that we would have the correct bus for our returning trip. Immediately after this conversation, our credit card was charged for the remaining balance. Unfortunately, the bus for our returning trip was again not what we had agreed upon and what was stated on our contact. What we received was a bright red full size charter bus in even worse conditions than the first. The smell of the bus once again had an unbearably strong stench of sewage which was making people feel sick during the 3.5-hour drive. It was an absolute embarrassment to have our guests travel in these terrible conditions. When we reached out final destination, Uptown Bus was contacted to be informed once again that we received a bus in awful conditions and that the type of bus is not what we chose per the contact. The dispatcher then replied that their busses are fine and that we were the problem. The interaction and experience with Uptown bus was completely unprofessional and unacceptable. I would give this company 0 stars and warn customers to not to use their services.
Lucy J
Lucy J: Firstly, the driver was punctual, easy to communicate with, and very professional. My family had an amazing time using the service. We used a party bus to accommodate for 16 people, and there was extra seating space still. The driver took us to and from a winery and made the experience so much easier. My mother’s surprise party was a hit thanks to this service! Definitely thankful! Would book with them again.
chase smith
chase smith: I really enjoyed my trip with you all the service was OUTSTANDING ! The bus driver made sure we had everything we needed from music to water chargers and etc* I highly recommend if you are in the area in need of a party bus to book with them
chase dedric
chase dedric: The service on my trip was excellent. Nice clean bus , the driver was very respectful and safe and I had no problems along my trip 10/10 recommend and will definitely come back again.
Samantha Smith
Samantha Smith: Booked a party bus for wine tour few weeks ago. me and my friends had a blast. The bus was clean with bathroom, our driver Ron was very professional and accomodating to our needs. I have used other companies previously but our experience with this company was worth it. I did not read the reviews prior to booking and when i decided to write a review of my great experience, i saw the negative reviews. My experience with the bus and the service was nothing short of perfect. I definitely will use this company again and I recommend their services to anyone looking for reasonable price and nice party buses.

Laurel Crespo: I was super excited to go to DC. All the history and sights. Between the awful traffic and the horrible parking. Now I wish I had just gone on an awesome cruise for the amount of money I spent in DC. I can check DV off the bucket list- but wouldn’t go back
Sherri Miller
Sherri Miller: DO NOT USE this bus tour!!! The worst every....completely ruined our day. My friend and I took this tour bus on 1 Aug. We were informed this was a guided tour with a hop on hop off option. We selected the red and blue/purple line. We picked it up at Union Station DC. Our trip to the White House was as advertised. A knowledgeable tour guide provided a fun cometary to the sites we were seeing. We got off at a stop near the White House and returned approximately 20 min later. We were told the buses ran every 15 to 20 min. We the hot sun....for a half and hour. Finally a bus arrived. However it was only for the yellow line. We waited another 15 -20 minutes and two buses finally arrived. However they were both for the yellow line. There were a number of us waiting and we spoke to one of drivers to inform him we had been waiting on a red line bus for over 45 minutes. After approximately 10 minutes the driver we had complained to showed up with a bus for the red line. I was a little confused how he had switched bus and returned so quickly....however we were relieved to be getting on a bus to continue our day. However the bus we no longer had a tour guide and the plug in headphone option was not working either. We got off at the Lincoln Memorial to catch the blue/purple line to Arlington. We waited again for well over the 15 to 20 minutes for a bus to show. When one did it to did not include a guided tour of any kind. We were taken to Arlington and told buses were running approximately every 30 minutes. After visiting Arlington we waited for approximately 30 minutes and saw no bus. We lost faith one would show we decided to walk back across the bridge to the Lincoln Memorial. No, I am not kidding. As we the heat and sun.....we never saw a CitySights bus. At the Lincoln Memorial we were able to catch a bus to return us to Union Station. Again, this bus had no guided tour. We filed a formal complaint at the number on the map and also at the stand were we brought our tickets. We wanted a refund. Instead they opened a "file" to determine if we could get a refund, which we have not yet received. We were also ordered a free ticket to ride the next day. After telling them what a horrible day we had on their bus the best they would offer was to do it again....are you kidding me. I will never take this bus tour again and it is no my mission to save others from taking it too. My friend and I were grateful for one thing. We were grateful we did not have our kids with us. We felt so sorry for those we shared our rides with that had children who were not only disappointed about no guided tour and the broken headphone jacks but were exposed to ridiculous long waits in the sun and heat. It is also important to note that during our many wait times we saw (with jealousy) other tour buses stop a number of times. In fact Old Town Trolly was everywhere and better yet they are covered transportation. PLEASE DO NOT use CitySights DC....this bus tour needs to be shut down!!
Response: Your feedback is important and helpful. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We sincerely apologize that the tours did not meet your expectations. Once again the information you provided about our tours has been sent to our management as feedback for improvement. Feel free to contact us directly to discuss your concern.
Rick White
Rick White: Waited more than an hour at one of their "hop on" stops. No bus. Others had been waiting more than 1.5 hours. No bus in either direction as this is where two routes meet. Phoning them was a dead end. Never an answer if the call even connected which it did not several times. Even if a bus would show, it would take all day to get back to Union Station. There was a bike race Sunday which had just about all of DC blocked off so the bus could not go anywhere but circles. The bus management had no clue where to go and the race was scheduled for months. While they gave us credit for the day, we were still stuck with the parking fee at Union Station for nothing. If "no star" were a rating, they would get it. The employees were fine.
Kimberly Wilder
Kimberly Wilder: This was absolutely a horrible experience! Took my 11 Girl Scouts to DC. The bus was 55 min late every time while the other buses had several stopping at the drop off and pick up locations! When I called the office we were told 15 min which turned Into 55 min. The driver and another employee were yelling at each other in a fight! A lady tour guide was down right rude... Several bus drivers complain about the company. We missed the Archieves due to them being so late.. mind you we paid for a tour that they would not allow me to reset! Will never use them again! I gave 1 star because 0 was not a option!

Woodrow Wilson House: what do users think?
Hussain: Highly recommend paying the $10 Tour, $5 for students. They give you all the details that you wouldn’t know without the tour. Tours are self-guided. Garden open, weather permitting. The President Woodrow Wilson House offers an intimate look at one of America’s greatest Presidents, statesman and Nobel Prize winner. View authentic objects from the White House and elaborate gifts of state. This Embassy Row house is a living textbook of “modern” American life in the 1920s from silent films to flapper dresses and zinc sinks.
David Morrison
David Morrison: Interesting museum. I attended for a private event, and this place is perfect for a low-key yet upscale event. Museum staff are friendly, helpful, and knowledgable.
Mary Petras
Mary Petras: The tour last one hour, but arrive about 20 min early to view a short video summarizing Wilson’s life and presidency. A knowledgeable docent leads you through the sitting room, dining room, bedrooms, and kitchen. Artifacts, furniture, and portraits are explained in each room. Be sure to check out the interactive room at the end where you can sit at a desk or couch and try on spectacles and hats while posing with a phonograph and old telephone from Wilson’s era.
MaryJane Burgess
MaryJane Burgess: The house is only open to tour with a staff member. Tour is an hour. It was very interesting and the docent was knowledgeable. Made history come alive with little known facts and stories. Well worth a visit.
Rusty Wilson
Rusty Wilson: Could not wait for the next tour. Every hour on the hour had the opportunity to look inside very good assortment of his furniture and the story behind it. Next time I will stay longer.
delovi canales
delovi canales: Excellent place to bring your wife and kids to learn more about historical events, the staff was very pleasant and knowledgeable. Recommend!! Check Group pon and get discounts
Ted Kidwell
Ted Kidwell: We visited here last summer it was a great place to see if you like history and historical places this a must place for you to visit. The staff great the tour was very good ,a great place for people of all ages.
Bid Penny
Bid Penny: Woodrow Wilson home is such a beautiful hidden jewel in Washington D.C. I live in N. VA and have done almost everything in DC. I wanted to try something different and chose the Woodrow Wilson home. Their website is not the best, but WOW the home and tour is spectacular! The home is 11,000 square feet and 90% of the furniture and artifacts are original. Beautiful paintings, art and decor. The tour is an hour long and includes a short introduction video about Woodrow Wilson. The home takes you back to the 1920s and is just amazing. I would even go again. I will definitely take my next out of town guests here. Parking was great too. I went on a Sunday and parked literally right in front of his home.

Cláudio Antônio Klaus Júnior
Cláudio Antônio Klaus Júnior: I had a fantastic tour with Emilia. She was super knowledgeable of the area and that made all the difference. I enjoyed it very much. The website describes it well, you basically walk around all the monuments and have a nice explanation about each of them. It ends at Lincoln Memorial, a big highlight. Other than the usual historic explanations you may also hear some of the possible theories regarding one thing or another, which I thought added a lot of fun to the tour. I did it on a Monday evening and we had some rain in the first few minutes - Highly recommend it!
Shawna Mcclurg
Shawna Mcclurg: Highlight of the trip! We had Becca and she was great. This was very informative and was a nice easy stroll around the tidal basin to view the cherry blossoms and the monuments in the area. We got very lucky with our timing and got to see most of the cherry blossoms start to bloom.
Karmen Aghajanian-Parks
Karmen Aghajanian-Parks: I took 2 tours from this company: tour of the National Mall and tour of the Capitol. I loved our guides on both tours Becca and Rebecca! Both were knowledgeable and fun. I highly recommend both tours.
Philip Cantore
Philip Cantore: The best walking tour of the Freedom Trail, hands down! Brian was entertaining and engaging while completely immersing the group is US history! The time flew by too quickly (2+ hours) and left us wanting more! Excellent tour guide!
Sofia Perez Wolfes
Sofia Perez Wolfes: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, ValueOur guide Eli was extremely passionate about the stories he was telling us, and his explanations were great. Even on the coldest day he was smiling and giving us the best energy while doing an amazing tour. I definitely recommend this and will do it again next time in DC.
Stephen Balza
Stephen Balza: Did the Monuments and Moonlight tour with Eli last night. He had his work cut out for him with 4th of July fencing all along the mall but he navigated us neatly through to the sights. Our two hours went by swiftly and we thoroughly enjoyed the views and historical insights he offered. The pace was comfortable and free time was allotted to explore and take pics at each location. The only caveat is that there is traffic noise (car and air) as well as sirens, etc that may make hearing difficult. If you are in a big group, stay close to the guide.
Response: Thank you for the review! We put a limit on our tour sizes for this reason but we can never escape the sirens :) 🚨
Elisabeth Guevara
Elisabeth Guevara: Positive: QualityExcellent tour by Canden about the historic Georgetown. She was easy to hear and learned so much about the community. We would definitely recommend a tour with them and join them again
Missi R
Missi R: Positive: ProfessionalismWe did Capitol Hill Highlights walking tour on August 16th . Ingeborg, was out guide, very knowledgeable and emphatic. Love the tour.
Paul Kopulos
Paul Kopulos: This was the first ghost tours my daughter and I have taken. Not only did we learn about the ghosts that were/are haunting Georgetown, we also learned of the wonderful history of this amazing city. Melissa was so much fun to be with and very (VERY) knowledgeable about the city and the wonderful ghosts that reside there. Although we did not see any spirits, we left knowing that they are in good hands with Melissa and Free Tours by Foot DC. I cannot wait to visit other cities (domestic and international) and take the tours there as well. Service: Group tours
Response: Hi Paul, thank you so much! Melissa is great and her enthusiasm is contagious, isn't it?

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!

Thankful Mom
Thankful Mom: We took a private tour today of Arlington National Cemetery with Navy veteran Tom Schultz of DC Military Tours. WOW. What we saw, did, and learned with Tom in 3 1/2 hours we NEVER could’ve done on our own. Tom and this tour were phenomenal. It was myself, my husband, and our teen son, who stayed engaged and loved it. HIGHLY recommend DC Military Tours. We will absolutely use Tom when we bring our son back to do DC. Thank you for an amazing and unforgettable afternoon.
Response: Beth, David, and Luke, Thank you for the kind review. We lucked out with the weather and I enjoyed your company and insights. I trust your drive back to Richmond was safe and wish that to continue in your way home to Tennessee. Please come back. Tom
Holly White
Holly White: We have toured Washing DC in the past with a major tour company, and I can say we had a 110% better experience with DC Military Tours. Mr. Shultz is a fabulous tour guide. We enjoyed two different tour packages through him. He genuinely cares about what you wish to see and do. Mr. Schultz’s knowledge base is remarkable!
Response: Holly, Thank you for sharing your family with me and best wishes to Mason on this coming plebe/swab summer at USNA or USCGA.
Charlie Salgado
Charlie Salgado: Tom was absolutely amazing, completely catered/scheduled our tour based on what we were interested in seeing and weather conditions and had some awesome recommendations along the way. Tom kept it very interesting for the kids by keeping them engaged with age appropriate questions, stories, and interesting facts. He was able to answer all of our completely random questions along the way. Tom’s passion for American History is evident and made it fun for all. Tom also had many awesome suggestions for photo ops along the way, and was able to capture some amazing family pictures for us. Thank you so much for your hospitality!
Response: Charlie and Amy, Thank you for your kind review and for sharing your family with me on Saturday. You are truly blessed with three daughters who are polite, composed, and thoughtful. I enjoyed our day together and am glad I was able to deliver a memorable Washington experience. - Tom
Maura Flint
Maura Flint: Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, ValueHad the opportunity to have Tom as our guide through Alexandria. His narrative and command of facts as well as his engaging story telling made for a wonderful experience. Definitely would take another tour soon.Services: Private tours, Group tours
Response: Maura, Thank you for your kind remarks. Perhaps on a return visit we can experience some additional Old Town attractions we did not have time for this time around. Tom
Brittany Chapman
Brittany Chapman: We reviewed a couple companies and settled on this one due to their flexible options and best pricing. Tom (our guide) was AWESOME! We weren’t sure what to expect but he was great- the tours he provided were top notch every single place we decided to go. He was fun to talk to and knew all the insider scoop stuff to give us the best experience in a short amount of time. Not only did he exceed expectations but he even took the time to help us plan our following day’s activities and give us tips and suggestions. We met us at Arlington, provided ice cold bottled water while he drove us to our destinations in his super clean and comfortable SUV with ease. GET this tour, we did the 6 hour and it was the highlight of our time in DC. You WONT regret it! Thanks so much!
Krista Stark
Krista Stark: Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, QualityTom is a fantastic storyteller and really paints the mental picture of the historical events he brings to life on his tours.
Response: Krista, Thank you for your thoughts. It was a wonderful autumn weather day in Old Town Alexandria and I’m glad we could take advantage. Tom.

KB Tours: what do users think?
Alana Brooks
Alana Brooks: Mr. Kenny is a great tour guide. He tells you the history of the area, and weaves in the Black history of everything he shows you. We went on the tour while there was major road closures for an event, and Mr. Kenny still got us where we needed to go. This tour is unique because you go through historically Black neighborhoods that most tours don’t take you to. I definitely recommend supporting this Black owned business.
Nitza Negron
Nitza Negron: Great tour! You get picked up in a very nice Mercedes Van with AC, Kenny takes you around, gives you history and also let’s you get out at a few places to take pics like Lincoln and MLK Memorial. We ended the tour with tickets to the African American Museum which was amazing!
Susan Marshall
Susan Marshall: Absolutely the best! Mr. Kenny was very professional and knowledgeable! I would do this tour again! I recommend anyone visiting DC to check out KB TOURS!
Nancy Nyberg
Nancy Nyberg: What a blast! Wanted to see the National Museum of African American History and Culture and no tickets for our time in DC. KB tours offers a wonderful tour of DC, by coach, that starts at the Naval Museum and ends at the AA History Museum. Also includes stops at the Lincoln Memorial, MLK memorial, Fredrick Douglass’ house (“...has done an amazing job...”), Civil War memorial. Kenny, the owner and guide, is very knowledgeable, funny and insightful. A life-long resident of DC, he knows and loves his city and his country. Definitely recommend seeing DC Kenny’s way.
Monica Williams
Monica Williams: KB Tours is the best. They are passionate about the history of Washington, D.C. and know hidden facts about the monuments that you will not know visiting on your own. Jamal was our tour guide and he provided excellent service. Mr. Kenny Burns thank you!
Jandie's Channel
Jandie's Channel: My family hired KBTours for our family reunion. I have lived in the Washington D.C. area for 15 years but KBTours showed us and taught us about some many historical locations that I had never even heard of and certainly had never been to. Kenny has an encyclopedia in his head when it comes to Washington D.C. and the rich history that is here. When I had to add a lot more family members to my tour with short notice, Kenny graciously and very quickly procured an addition tour bus for us at a very reasonable price. A lot of my family said that the tour was one of the best parts of our family reunion that year. I would not hesitate to hire KBTours again. All of the drivers and tour guides were excellent!!

United States Capitol: what do users think?
Zay McCullough, MSW, LCSW-A
Zay McCullough, MSW, LCSW-A: This was the last major attraction I saw during my one week trip here from 12/28/21 to 1/4/2022. You can see the Capital Building from several blocks away. I actually remembered I needed to stop by because I saw it after exiting the Children’s Museum. It was a little after 5pm when we made it there. We say the reflecting pool, which is wider but shorter than the reflecting pool between the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument. Unlike the latter, the Capitol’s reflecting pool isn’t easily accessible to stuck your feet it. The view, however, was still nice. This was my first time being in DC since I was in elementary school. It was extremely awesome to see the Capitol building. It was ironic that I had just watched Olympus Has Fallen on TV in my hotel just a day prior. Unfortunately, the perimeter of the building is gated off due to the events that transpired a year ago. I’m saddened to see that public access still isn’t available. Of course COVID is an added barrier to tours. Going inside is something that I wanted to do. I did not go to the visitors center that is close by as my son was ready to go back to the hotel, lol. There was a large Christmas tree in the lawn area between the capital building and the reflecting pool. Many people were taking pictures and appeared to be having a good time. I was grateful for the experience because I talked to my son (8) about what goes on in the building, the legislative bodies, and etc. I’m sure he’s forgotten everything we talked about but he can say he seen it in person whenever he does learn about it in school.
Ganindu Madhawa
Ganindu Madhawa: A place where one can probe into the political history of USA.It is an iconic place and you need to reserve tickets beforehand visiting the place. You will be provided with a guide who give descriptive analysis of the architecture of the place and historical events. 😊

Yusra Nabeel: Such a great experience visiting one of the US symbols. Great place with beautiful reflection in pool.
Ali Shajarizadeh
Ali Shajarizadeh: This beautiful building is a must-see for everyone who visit Washington DC. The building has a long history. The place is where many important decisions were and are made that affects the world.
Stephen Butler
Stephen Butler: My first time taking the tour. Our Representative arranged a VIP tour. It was very small and personal. There’s no cost, but if your going to take a tour book it in advance. It takes about 3 hours or so. It was worth the time. Please hit “Like” if this was helpful. Thanks.
Ben Henderson
Ben Henderson: Really enjoyed the tour inside the Capitol building. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and funny. Really interesting history and beautiful inside. Liked the fact you can then walk through a tunnel to cross over to the library of Congress which again was beautiful.
Isabelle Tran
Isabelle Tran: Beautiful architecture from the outside. Recommended to book in advance for a tour. The park outside is a beautiful place to relax after a long day of touring, including some cherry blossom trees.

Chris Petote
Chris Petote: This was an extreme privilege for me to see the Washington home of such an important and influential man. Frederick Douglass, from former slave to supreme abolitionist, an extremely well versed speaker and brave human. The house is wonderfully kept, the guide was very knowledgeable, this is history at its finest.
Aaliyah Green
Aaliyah Green: Frederick Douglass home was such a Fantastic visit. I took my children as sort of a mini field trip to tour the grounds. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and informative about the timeline of Douglass life when his incredible Family lived in the home and on the property. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing all the home had to offer, it was marvelous to have a window back into time in such an extraordinary way. I recommend all families near and far visit this national treasure!

Carolyn Wilkinson
Carolyn Wilkinson: This was my first virtual museum tour. I loved it! The speaker was lively, entertaining, informative, educated… she was a very good at her job. I’m hooked and will be back for more tours. I am a degree artist, art history minor, picture framer- but sadly I am also newly disabled. My chances of ever getting back to a brick and mortar museum again are slim. But I am so inspired now knowing that my museum days have returned. I can’t thank you enough for the experience. In particular, the sacred arts are my current interest, so I was very pleased that this tour was offered.
Response: Thank you for your kind note.
Lynn/Glen Carey
Lynn/Glen Carey: I took the 2 hour virtual Impressionist tour with Sarah. She was a wonderful speaker and brought her joy of art to the class. She gave great history of the artists, pointed out subtleties of the paintings and created a wonderful 2 hour experience.
Response: Thank you for the kind note.
Diana Hergert
Diana Hergert: Very enjoyable and informative virtual Grand Masters tour! The time just flew by as Stephen Mead filled us in on tidbits and details of the history of the many pieces featured. They were gorgeous, and I appreciated learning more about them and the period in which they were created. Someday I hope to see them in person. Thank you for this program!
Response: Thank you
Ghisèle “Gigi”
Ghisèle “Gigi”: I did the tour of the French Impressionists with Sarah. I was quite impressed by her knowledge, her sense of humor and her willingness to pronounce the French words properly. I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. I would like to do a tour in French, as it is my mother tongue. Can you give me some information on who to contact? Thank you.
Response: Thank you for your kind note I know a tour guide who is French. Please email me directly for his contact information.

Mangia DC Food Tours: what do users think?
Mo Wakefield
Mo Wakefield: We went on the Georgetown Foodie Tour yesterday and it was great. Marsha was an excellent tour guide and was very knowledgeable about Georgetown history and the food we tried. I’ve been on other food tours where you have tastes/samples at a number of places. This one was different because we only went to 4 places -but had a full serving of the food we were tasting. It was wonderful really getting to experience the food - and ended up needed a bag to take leftovers!! We’ll definitely do a Mangia Tour again- can’t wait for the Italian tour!
Karen McIntosh
Karen McIntosh: Love love loved our Mangia DC Food Tour! Really enjoyed the restaurant choices and the stories behind them. The food was plentiful and delicious. McKendrey was a fantastic tour guide - fun, friendly, knowledgeable! Highly recommend!
Dawn Matthews
Dawn Matthews: We had the best time today, touring Georgetown’s gorgeous streets with our incredibly personable and knowledgeable hosts McEndrey and Dave! The peroski and veggie taco were the bomb! Loved seeing Julia Child’s home in this gorgeous area of DC.
Heather Wasson
Heather Wasson: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, ValueWe did the Georgetown Foodie tour. I really liked the smaller group size. It was very informative and Shannon, the tour guide, kept us engaged. It was the perfect balance of learning, walking, socializing, and eating. The food choices were so yummy! We’re local (from MD) and still learned so much. Highly recommended!
Butch Gaddy
Butch Gaddy: We had a great time with Marsha. She’s a very knowledgeable guide. The food was good and so many points of Georgetown history and interest. Great way to spend an afternoon!
J Shedd
J Shedd: Fun facts and tasty afternoon exploring Georgetown, McKendree was friendly and is clearly a big fan of her city. Come hungry, you gets lots of food (and good vegetarian options). Thumbs up!

Jayson Fuller
Jayson Fuller: A quiet taste of Asia in the middle of DC. I arrived in the morning on a Sunday before most of the shops and restaurants opened. The gate was beautiful and the splashes of Eastern architecture among the buildings was nice to look at. My highlight was the Kura Sushi Conveyor restaurant that brought back fond memories of my time in Japan. They even greeted customers in the traditional Japanese way!
BiVi: Is ok. It’s mostly restaurants. The environment was much better before covid19.
Wei Hsu
Wei Hsu: Visit here for the best Asian food! Streets are clean but should be careful of the vehicles.
Lizzy French

Jenn Z
Jenn Z: It has cleaner streets compared to a few other Chinatown I have been. Not very big but nice to walk around. Saw the Mary Surratt’s boarding house where the assessing of Lincoln was plotted. it is a now Chinese Lion Association. Some interesting history around this area and the surrounding historical districts like Mt Vernon on M street and 9th. House #909 .

Bryan Hikes

Lina Bassett
Lina Bassett: This is a small fort in the middle of a DC neighborhood. This place can be easily missed, however since it is part of civil war history, this should be a place to stop and visit, even if only perhaps on the way to something else.
Lance Hampton
Lance Hampton: Worth seeing the spot where President Lincoln watched a Confederate attack on Washington, DC in 1864.
Trevor Joyce
Trevor Joyce: There are better parks in/around D.C. but if you live in the area it makes for an interesting visit.
BAC625: Fort Stevens is a historic Civil War site that is very important to me. We were involved in trash pickup.
James Salt
James Salt: Great historic park in upper Georgia Ave. area. Of that they split the historic location to create housing development.
Cory Newmann

National Mall: what do users think?
Warman Hall
Warman Hall: It is simply amazing to be in one spot where you can take a Sunday stroll around a beautiful lake and blooming orchard of trees while seeing some of the most important and stunning monuments in the world! I only wish I had more time on my visit to simply walk around and take in the sights. I got to visit mid-morning on a Thursday in early March so the crowds were not bad at all.
Dr. Michael Shur
Dr. Michael Shur: National mall is one of the most interesting and enjoyable places to visit in DC and, actually, in the entire country. Museums second to none, great memorials, and lots of tourists. The only blemish, truly embarrassing for our nation, is the toilet facility next to the Lincoln Memorial. Many establishments in Washington, DC, have serious problems with plumbing and sanitation. But this one is even worse than average. My wife and I visited the women an men facility, respectively. The lady’s room had a long queue (that took about 45 minutes) to reach one of three available stalls. The door of one of them was broken. The filth of the place according to my wife’s report could only be matched by the men’ facility with broken facets and suspicious liquid on the floor difficult to avoid. Not even restrooms in Central Park in NYC come close. And you are really well advised to avoid those at all costs if at all possible. --
Gee Queue
Gee Queue: They do a pretty good job of maintaining the grounds despite the best efforts of the populace to screw them up. The scale of some of the monuments is difficult to comprehend until you are there in person. I recommend a night tour. They are much more stunning when lit up.
Leilani-Z: Full day of exercise and definitely could spend more days here. We parked at a nearby parking garage, and by the time we got back to the car at the end of the day, we had logged 9 miles. Beautiful and clean, so much to see and learn about. We went to almost all of the monuments and two of the museums. The ice cream / food trucks are great, but the music they play should be banned 🙈
Nikkicole8890: My boyfriend took me here for my first time in DC and I loved it! It was so beautiful and I really enjoyed walking around and seeing all of the monuments and statues! I would love to go back again one day!
Ashok Patel
Ashok Patel: National Mall is not a “Shopping Mall”. It is a National Park containing iconic monuments and memorials of some of the greatest people and events who shaped America as a nation. This is called the front yard of America and a symbol of democratic values. This is a green lush park between United States Capitol building to Potomac River. Every citizen of US should visit and explore these incredible memorials like Lincoln Memorial, MLK Jr Memorial, Thomas Jefferson Memorial, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Korean War Veterans Memorial, Washington Monument, World War 2 Memorial and the list goes on and on. Park rangers offer variety of programs and activities free of charge, otherwise you can explore and enjoy the park in your way and pace. It’s lawns and pathways are mostly crowded by school children, joggers and visitors and tourists from all over the world. This is where the history is made and witnessed. The American forefathers and heroes are honored here who paid ultimate sacrifice for the country. This is the national stage where people gather and movements take place and their voices heard. Everyone should wander here in the tree-lined pathways and take in the scenery and history of America. There is lot of walking involved. This is open 24 hours and you can visit during anytime and enjoy the different beauty at different times.
Joe Hughes
Joe Hughes: This was our first time in Washington DC. First 3 days it was very hot and humid but over all we had a great vacation. The National Mall was interesting having everything pretty close together in walking distance. It was even more beautiful at night. We are glad that we went.
scott bowman
scott bowman: The museums are always great to visit. Masks are required in all museums, and there are bag checks at all of them, too. There are not many water fountains and no water bottle filling stations in the museums we visited. Hand sanitizing stations are available. There are plenty of food vendors/ food trucks around the Mall. This Is Not A Shopping Mall. This is the strip from the Capitol Building to the Lincoln Memorial, called The Mall.

It is rather small compared to other markets that I have been to. I saw fresh fish, angus beef, produce, bakery, sweets, and prepared foods you could eat outside. This was a nice place to stop for lunch!
Jessica McNutt
Jessica McNutt: Eastern Market is a great place to go. During the week you can go inside for high quality meat, fish, poultry, fruit,vegetables and dine-in/carry out prepared food. On the weekend, when I really love to stop by, there is an extensive farmers market with all sorts of amazing local vendors.
