City Segway Tours: what do users think?


Ian Campbell: This is a MUST if you are in the DC area. The segways are super fun and a great way to explore the sights! Our tour guide Joe made this trip extra memorable, he was super knowledgeable, down to earth and fun! Learned a lot of neat things about the city and got to see all the main sights! Joe also gave some great recommendations of things to do after the tour which led to other great experiences, can't express enough how awesome this was!

Allinton Alexander: This place was absolutely amazing, the instructor we had his name was Sam. Sam was great very attentive spoke clearly waited for us and was very knowledgeable of the memorials around the National Mall. I've been on many Segway tours around the country and this one though it was not the best, mainly because I live in DC and seen The Monuments many times. It was definitely very rememberable. It kind of sucks because of the location of the Segway store it's a great location but like DC parking is tough so that's always an issue. The store was clean the lady up front was very friendly she actually gave me a pair of sun shades because I forgot mine at the house. Much appreciated. For someone who has never been on a Subway or never experience DC on a Segway, I will definitely recommend this place because it beats walking.

Karen Colclasure: Over the 150 trips I have taken, other than snowmobiling this is my favorite thing to do ! I will always always always try to find a Segway company in any town that I go to. This is the best way to tour a city. And it was absolutely fabulous we now we'll to tour our capital city this way. Thank you thank you thank you !

Anup Rao: The staffs were friendly and our guide Rob was amazing and took care of us.Safety first and we had a great segway tour around the beautiful monuments of DC.

Cindy Harper: The tour was a blast. We did the 6PM sunset tour and I have to say this was the highlight of our trip to DC. Anna was our guide and she was super knowledgeable and funny! 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: 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: 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.: 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: So much fun will do again great guide he was very knowledgeable and funny

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!

Capital Segway Tours: what do users think?


Josiah Dahlstrom: These guys were awesome. Great training in the Segways and the tour was awesome. I’ve been to DC 4 different times but haven’t done a tour. This was the way to do it. Knowledgeable tour guides. Lots to see and great spots to snap pics. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND. And Erica was out tour guide. She was fabulous!

Sachin Sujir: One of the best tours I have ever been on. Thanks to the staffs and tour guide at Capital Segway tours for making my trip memorable and fun. Kind and great staffs and tour guides. They were patient during the training and the tour which made me feel comfortable and get trained faster. Special mentions to the guides are they were really friendly and polite. 10/10 for their service. I would definitely recommend!!

Tiffany Curtiss: LOVED IT! Tour guides, Alex & John, were fun and informative! They were patient in making sure All riders were comfortable on their Segway and were very attentive during the tour for any mishaps.MUST DO!

Jenica Anderson: We had such a blast on this tour! The earpieces really kept us on the Segway riding more than stopping and talking. Great pace and our tour guide was informative and funny! 10/10 would recommend. So worth it and fun.

Rebekah Diaz: Really enjoyed this tour! We went on several tours while in DC, but this one was the best! Roury and Elijah were our tour guides and they were absolutely hilarious. They provided earbuds for us to be able to hear them while they were talking and moving. We saw a lot of the monuments and traveled quite the distance to see a lot in DC. We arrived after our “arrive 30 minutes early time” because we did not see that on our confirmation. Oops. They were still accommodating to us & caught us up quick. We had already been on segways so the learning curve was easier. Great way to see DC! Thanks guys.

Sam for Short: So much fun!!!! Best way to see DC. Erica was great- very knowledgeable. They also gave us the tutorials and made us comfortable on the Segways before our departure. Best tour of DC I’ve ever been on

johanna santiago: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, ValueHad so much fun and instructors take their time to teach you how to ride. I thought it would be electric and I had to do nothing but steer and stand, lol. However, after a couple minutes you get the hang of it. Great experience, lots of fun and great opportunities for great photos! Will do each time I visit DC!

Rita Jensen: This was our 2nd group visit to Capital Segway Tour. Our guide Justin was AMAZING. We were treated like family. We were able to design the your to our needs. The unseasonably cold evening tour was nonetheless enjoyable. Thanks again Justin!

Dave Doering: We were in town for lax tournament and needed something to do with boys one afternoon when one of the parents thought of a Segway tour of the monuments downtown... it was AWESOME! From the reservation process (better than others we had called) to our tour guide Ryan, who was very patient with the antics of teenage boys (and their parents). Highly recommend and would do it again if given the opportunity.

Keyia Makel: Omg!!! Our Tour guides Roy and Justin where BEYOND AWESOME, from being very welcoming, patient during train, dedicated to safety and always there for little mistake made while riding. The tour is very informative and funny due to Roy's great sense of humor. He also made sure to converse and take every one's pic. It was truly an experience and I will bee back..SOON

Eastern Market: what do users think?


Sachin Thomas: Many miss this place while exploring the capital, but it's a nice little market with old town feel. You can walk along the stores and purchase unique items. There are several cafes too, to have breakfast or lunch

Renee Moore: So I got some amazing things from the market today .... Heirloom tomatoes, some funky string beans and great corn on the cob. Also handmade soap that some people said was a must try, I'll post the veggies later guys because I packed them away for cooking tomorrow but here are some other photos I took. Enjoy

Ruth Bonacci: I love markets. We visited on a Tuesday afternoon. It was not too busy. We got lunch at one of the places inside the market. 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: 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.

Shannon A. McGhee: Was wowed. VERY NICE ESTABLISHMENT. I purchased a few pieces of cake from a stand, and I might say it was pretty darn good. The pineapple upside down cake was hitting. I also tried their sweet potatoe cake. They've earned a new customer. Yes!!!!!yes I love sweets.

Amelya Sjahlim: I have been coming here two weekends in a row for the flea market. There are always new products or stalls to be found; creative art pieces, handmade jewelry, candles and bath bombs.

Marrento The Wandering Sage: I'm only giving 4 stars because I never actually go inside the market. I just like to stroll through the vendors outside on the weekends. Tons of original art, pottery, handmade clothing, lotions (Sunah Blu 😍), vinyl, and other things for the home. If you're lucky, you'll catch some live sax or violin paying.

ivana gobbo: Beautiful place! We really enjoyed the atmosphere and the overall experience. You can find fresh veggies, fruits, fish, poultry, beef, pork, beef... They also have flowers, dessert, breakfast, lunch, crafts, art, clothes... Everybody is so nice, the architecture it’s spectacular! We went this Sunday and the weather was perfect!

Harry He: Eastern market is one of the hidden gems in DC. the crab cake at the diner is a must try. Also a perfect place for fresh meat, seafood, vegetable, and fruits. Farmers market nearby on weekends also host many local businesses with great products.

Scott Hayes: Farmers market is full of fun options from a wide variety of vendors. The many restaurants and stores also offer you the chance to pickup whatever you might need for day to day life

Museum of the Bible: what do users think?


Brittany Wood: Six floors of amazing. It was the best museum I have ever been too. So well thought out and put together. You got to learn the history of the bible, see amazing artifacts, including the dead sea scrolls, you got to learn about the bible in American history and current history. You also got to walk thru Nazareth. I was there for 4 hours and didn't have enough time to see everything. It was incredible.

M Lopez: Had been looking forward to visiting the Museum of the Bible for quite some time and finally got to. Purchased discounted tickets through Groupon which was a great, after walking in, I went to the front desk, presented the vouchers and was able to go in fast, we made sure to be there as soon as it opened. The museum is very interesting, they have so much information, so you will need more than a couple hours to go through it well. Loved the village and the Old and New Testament shows. They have a nice little playground for the kiddos. Their restaurant, Manna, was really good as well, just beware that they get very busy so make sure to get there early before the lunch rush. Look forward to visiting again soon!

Bradley P: What an amazing museum! It is so modern and well put together. They make great use of tech technology in their exhibits. I enjoyed the ride where it flies you around DC and uncovers hidden Bible messages. So cool!! Can’t wait to go back!!

Paul LaVigne: Wow! The museum of the Bible absolutely astounded me by its physical size, scope of exhibits, and the amazing amount of artifacts and modern day technology employed in its exhibits. There are six floors to this place. There is a very extensive exhibit with actual biblical artifacts/bibles stretching all the way back to 1,000 AD! Another exhibit includes a re-creation of a typical home and surrounding neighborhood in ancient Jerusalem. Another exhibit is packed with modern interactive technology that shows how the Bible has influenced life around the world we live in. I could go on and tell more but instead I wholeheartedly recommend you make this a destination place to visit when in Washington DC.

Andrew Fallis: The Bible Museum is so incredible! I loved the Virtual Reality tour of the Holy Land. On Floor Level 4, one of the most Interesting places I've ever been. Seeing Rosetta Stone, one of the oldest and Complete books of Isaiah, so many manuscripts & the versatile of the scrolls and their inscriptions. The Bible museum was one of my favorite places, my only regret is not having enough time to see everything the Bible Museum had to offer. A true masterpiece of Biblical History and all it holds!

Christina: Lots of neat old bibles and artifacts along with some fun interactive stations. Some of them could have been labeled or described a bit more clearly and in depth. The cost is decently high though after parking, tickets and especially the food. The employees were friendly except in the cafeteria as I'm guessing they didn't enjoy their job's as they were pretty snippy.

Pavel Kotyza: This is one of the newest museums in DC and I can assure you it is one of the most interesting ones. From the history to the modern days you can see how the Book of the Books influenced the generations. I really liked this museum even as a non religious. Great items to see and learn. Thank you for opportunity to learn more about this worldwide recognised book.

David: This place is amazing. Much better than I expected. I found it uplifting, educational and entertaining. Appropriate for all ages. We also went on the Washington Revelations ride on the 2nd level. We spent two hours there and barely scratched the surface. Highly recommend giving yourself plenty of time or better yet, split it up into a couple days if you can.

James Ward: A terrific museum with a presentation style like none other. They have classical museum exhibits that are authentic plus world class facsimiles of the Rosetta Stone and the Hammurabi code. I've seen both of these originals and they are indistinguishable from the authentic ones. So those along with their authentic Nebuchadnezzar artifacts were world-class.

Roy Simmons: Excellent place to visit. Lots of beautiful artifacts and very friendly staff. You could easily spend hours in here as you visit the various displays. A lot of history that the average person may not be aware of. A definite recommend if you are visiting Washington D.C.

National Museum of African American History and Culture: what do users think?


Dani Isthebest: The amount of History is amazing. Did you know the tickets come out the first Wednesday of the month before? I figured this out Thursday and could only book a Sunday @1030a. It's about a 2' drive or on the train from DE to DC. We actually lucked up and found free parking but I did see meters other places so check the parking situation. The Museum is gorgeous. To get to the main exhibit is was about a 25 minute wait to get in there. But once in, Wow! Two hours is really not enough time to see it all but it can be tiresome to some with all the walking. This place is also handicap accessible and can provide elevators if needed. Eat before you go or they have a Cafe but it closes around 3p. You must be vaccinated to go into the cafe. NO vaccination required to visit the exhibits.
Response: Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate your enthusiasm for the museum and passion for African American history. Since the beginning of Covid, a limited number of same-day passes are available each day the Museum is open starting at 8:15AM EST. Go to NMAAHC.si.edu/visit to view the availability of passes. All passes are distributed online. We hope you will visit again. We thank you for sharing your personal experience visiting the museum! Thank you for submitting a review. Sincerely, Visitor and Guest Services National Museum of African American History and Culture

Nabou Fall: Powerful, emotional, rich, fair, i learnt so much & i really appreciated the respect for gender diversity. Women are given their place in the history of African Americans as well as the diaspora. Must see. But you need to book even if it's free.

Shaniece Heath: 1st time visiting the museum and I highly recommend viewing the Concourse exhibit if you do nothing else. The concourse is where the Emmitt Till exhibit is located and that did have the longest wait time, but more than worth it. There were so many beautiful artifacts and amazing visuals to go along with some of the images and artifacts. The 1st floor when you walk in was also overwhelming hearing the audio of the slaves saying they rather jump ship than travel to an unknown world without their families!

Tamekia Buckner: Was amazing! 2nd floor was closed, so cannot wait until we return. Got free tickets 1 month in advance from their website.
Response: Dear Tamekia, Thank you for letting us know about your recent experience with NMAAHC. The Museum remains extremely popular, and we are limiting the number of people who can enter the museum for the safety of all visitors and staff. Passes do go very quickly but a limited number of same-day passes are available each day the Museum is open starting at 8:15AM EST. Go to NMAAHC.si.edu/visit to view the availability of passes.

Corey Trusty: It was a good trip to the museum. It was fast and easy to get access. I was able to get tickets the day of for the time I wanted. The museum exhibits were done very well and tastefully. The museum is absolutely huge and I would for shire come back. The only issue is the parking in the National Mall is terrible. But overall good experience. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes because you will for sure be getting your steps in and it is a must go!!!

Melvin Thomas: A great museum. Lots of history. Some of the images and artifacts cause sadness realizing the time span of the atrocities, some of them surprisingly recent. Some exhibits also celebrate black contributions, mostly in sports and entertainment. Maybe they will add more black inventors and contributors to the sciences.

Valencia Brown: This museum totally captures the horrific moments in time that African Americans endored. Its about time there is a historic National museum that acknowledges that that these events in American history did indeed occur, and the role Americans had in the slave trade. The overcoming of oppression, justice and equality is still a fight, however the advances and contributions made in history from African Americans are undeniable. This museum encompass all of this and more! Highly recommend attending. Best of all, its free!

Thanks to those that put this all together, everyone needs to see it.

Jacquelyn Disharoon: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, ValueWe had an AWESOME experienceHOPE was our guide and she was WICKED SMAAAAHRT!!!!

Rita Priest: Don’t use them. I booked a day in advance. Received a text to call. When I called them they said it would would be intermittently raining and perhaps we should reschedule. We were only in DC for 1 day so that was not an option so we decided we would touch base in the morning. I woke up at 6 and it was pouring so I called a new left a message to cancel. I called again at 930 and spoke with Anna who refused to honor what was discussed the prior day. Not only was she completely rude and spoke over me the entire time, more importantly she refused to honor the cancellation as discussed the prior day. There are so many bike tours in DC do yourself a favor and utilize a company that honors your conversation and doesn’t charge you $80 to bike in torrential downpour.

National Gallery of Art: what do users think?


Terry Bexton: AWESOME art. Absolutely unbelievable to witness these masterpieces in real life. I was astonished by the gift shop as well. Most people that know me know that I LOVE gift shops, and this one was definitely one of my new favorites. It had all the different art related things a person could think of. Absolutely would recommend this gallery to any art lover.

Kathryn Corselius: The National Gallery of Art is a great stop for any history or art lover. Boasting many different paintings from the biggest artists, the gallery is expansive and well-curated. I spent a couple of hours here and could easily have spent more time here. I would recommend planning ahead to locate the galleries that are a must-see for you, as after a couple of hours, it's easy to get fatigued by how many pieces there are. For history lovers, check out the presidential portraits by Gilbert Stuart and the famous painting of Marie Antoinette. I also recommend touring the galleries on the lower floor, where there are beautiful Degas and Rodin sculptures and early Colonial furniture.

Nay Wareenipha: Absolutely must visit if you love art and it's FREE! I saw a Davinci painting for the first time here with nobody around. It's very peaceful. There's also a FREE baggage deposit area so don't worry about your coats and bags. You can get a free map that will allow you to go through each section based on the era of the paintings. You can easily spend a whole day here. So many things to see. Additionally there's also an amazing free audio guide under some paintings that you can listen to which is fantastic. There's also another floor under dedicated to sculptures which is also very interesting. There's free WiFi in the premises. Also souvenir shops and food place. Plus, it's also next to the Smithsonian museum so you can see both in one day.

R Lin: I’ve been to the Gallery of Art a few times now, and it really just never gets old. It would also take at least one entire day to truly get through everything that’s there (the museum is HUGE, and has more than one building), so when I say it never gets old it’s the honest truth. There’s something new pretty much every time because there’s a back corner or section you accidentally missed the previous time. This place is beyond easy to get lost in. It’s definitely an iconic Smithsonian, and worth seeing. But again- this place is massive! Schedule a big chunk of your day if you want to see a lot of it, or else prioritize the works you want to see and grab a building map to help you stay on track (there’s a good chance you’ll still get a little lost). You get to see some true, original and iconic pieces here. I think it’s also fun seeing where the Gallery got the pieces from. If you’re at all a souvenir person you’d better also visit the gift shop (again, view the building map and follow signs because it can be tough to find). Love this maze of a museum!

Andrew Hovenden: So much to see. Take your time but don't dawdle or you will tire before you see it all! I posted my favorites and lesser known pieces I liked; and ones I want to know more about. Be sure to look at the frames and the floors. Some of the frames are amazing and the floors are beautiful wood. Decent place for kids under 12 but the might need help understanding why these are great works. Good Cafe with a nice Kale and chicken salad.

F SDK: I've driven 4 hours to be in Washington DC from PA, and this is one of the place we've stopped over. We didnt need entry fee, and the amazing arts took a couple of hours from our day trip. The place is huge, hard to walk all the way and see everything. We've tried to cover as much we could within a short time.

Noah Lepek: The National Gallery of Art should be on everyone's itinerary when planning a visit to Washington D.C. This internationally recognized museum holds works of art from every part of the world, allowing people to develop a better understanding of the world. When visiting the capital of the United States, this place certainly comes highly recommended.

Shravya Boppana: FANTASTIC! This is a great place to visit for all ranges of art lovers! It has such a wide range of art that is a ranged in an easy to digest walk through. The interactive guide through the app can help with understanding the history behind the artist and art, which is great for people who are just beginning in the art scene as well. It is a must visit!

Evan S: A free museum with so many fabulous paintings! The Van Gogh selection was amazing.. if you have time check it out! It was so easy to get in and out.

Kevin Shim: No entry fee. Wear a mask. This museum has a good collection of art. From early Rennaisance to modern. Da Vinci, Raphael, Vermeer, Degas, Monet, Degas, Rothko are the highlights of this museum. It’s laid out in a way to showcase how our perception of art has evolved over the years. The East building holds all the modern art. The underground concourse that connects the West and East building is worth checking out.

Angel Jones: Shaady was an absolute pro! Our schedule was up in the air and she worked us in last minute. She had a wealth of fun trivia and conversation topics, took us to a great selection of monuments and sights, and took photos of the whole experience. We found her on Bring Fido, and our pup had as much fun as we did. Highly recommend.

Az Mobile Pool Service: Alex was the man. Picked us up in just about freezing temperatures on Sunday night at 8pm with a smile. Great knowledge and experience

Isabela Paz: Positive: ValueDiscover DC Tours is a wonderful experience! My friends and I were carried by such an enthusiastic woman. We sang songs, had great convos, and laughed the whole ride! It felt like one of those moments you knew you will be nostalgic for. I recommend it 100000% ✅Service: Private tours

Kung Fu Brush: Shaady was super nice to my sister and me, and gave us an in-depth tour of DC's monuments and interesting sights. She even recommended a good Ramen place. I found her through Tripadvisor, and she really cared about our experience. I can recommend her tour company without reservations!

F. manan: Five stars for this tour! By way of introduction, my mom and I hail from the west coast and this trip was to be our First Ever Epic Mother-Daughter Bondathon in Our Nation's Capital (cue reverberating monster truck rally announcer voice). Naturally, we put a great deal of planning into our family-time travel extravaganza, departing California armed with an itinerary listing an intimidating number of must-see attractions. Sadly, we lost the initial sight seeing battle to an unexpected foot injury which rendered me lame as a Florida lawn flamingo's shadow in silhouette. Fortunately, we emerged victorious after stumbling (figuratively this time) across Nonpartisan Pedicab during an online search. Our secret weapon was Yashar, a One-Man-Malitia of Mental and Muscle Endurance, who served double duty as tour guide extraordinaire and transportation guru. Yashar delivered his tour narrative (an engaging combination of humorous/informative anecdotal, historical, political, and architectural details) in a conversational manner that never came across as disingenuous in the way that overly rehearsed narratives are sometimes wont to do. Yashar went above and beyond by also inviting us to observe specific city views in order to compare them to historic photographs that depicted mirror images taken from across the ages. For us, these photo comparison opportunities served to poignantly underscore the way that the story of America's past is both hidden within, and integrated into, the patchwork of DC's ever evolving landscape. Where applicable, Yashar also invited us to view depictions of original or alternate design proposals for some of the city's most beloved and iconic monuments and buildings (the Jefferson Memorial). These design comparisons provided us with an equally intriguing window into the world of what might have been. Yashar remained a patient and affable guide throughout the tour, despite (or in spite of) the sweltering 95 degree heat. In true American spirit, we were given the liberty to set our own tour agenda that, armed with our trusty itinerary, we tailored in accordance with our desired pace and priorities. Robert proved a willing vacation photographer and we thank him for contributing his compositions to our family photo alblum (cloud file?). I suppose it would be poor review etiquette if I failed to note that, as personal guided tours in popular destination cities go, Discover Dc Pedicab Tours is a reasonably priced option that is particularly well suited to the needs of limited mobility tourists. **As an, admittedly partisan, side-note: Pedicab tours are one of the few enviornmentally friendly methods of sight seeing. l heartily recommend them as an effective means of mitigating the weight of any latent air-travel emissions guilt baggage you may be lugging around the Capital, or anywhere you travel. **As an, arguably non-partisan, side-note: Nonpartisan Pedicab is a small business and Yashar is clearly a dedicated and hard working pedicab tour guide! We should all be supporting small business in local communities as recognition regarding the value of that support appears, based my limited experience, to be one of the few remaining issues that even the partisan are happily made party to. Cheers Yashar, thank you for helping me overcome the limitations of my inner flamingo and for helping this (not) walking mother-daughter disaster team to check all of DC's best and brightest off our bucket lists.

shushu Fakhrai: Discover Dc Pedicabs was our choice above all others - walking, cab, Uber, public transit, or the dreaded "find a parking spot for yourself" challenge. Their pricing was very fair, and their customer service is off the charts. Joe Brophy, the GM of the company, answered so many noob questions of mine (I'd never been to Washington), and ultimately, set us up with Bogi one of their best tour guides/drivers, for an hour-long tour of the National Mall, from the Washington Monument to the Lincoln Memorial. Rob is a tremendous gentleman with outstanding character, and a showman's spirit! His knowledge and humor about DC is wonderful, and we were highly entertained as well as educated as to what we were seeing on our way along the Mall. I cannot recommend this company enough - and if you get a chance, ask for Bogi- he's awesome!

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. It’s entertaining and a different experience for your guests. It takes little effort to book & coordinate because Discover DC Tours is quick to respond and has lots of experience with groups.

Marissa Starkie: Positive: QualityFirst time visiting DC on my own and I was able to see so much in just a short amount of time. She was very knowledgeable about the city and the history. Super personable and a joy to converse with during the tour. Would definitely refer and tour again!Service: City tours
Response: thanks!!!

Kurt LaFlamme: The tour was awesome for our family me and my two kids absolutely loved it they even got some trivia questions right and they learned stuff and we got souvenirs! last year we went on the Christmas tree tour and we got to see the capital Christmas tree some pretty lights downtown and we ended at the White House Christmas tree. We came back to DC to visit my nephew and decided to do it again in November for Thanksgiving around time because we’re here in town again. It was one of the only things that was open and super Covid friendly out in the open air my kids even got blankets and my wife and I well we got wasted and it was great we got some on the go alcoholic adult beverages that embellished our enthusiastic and amazing tour. Great for family great for kids I highly recommend two thumbs up! Service: Private tours

Newsha Talebi: I had always seen pedicabs around but never took a tour with one. Even though I'm a DC resident, I loved taking a tour around the monuments with Discover DC. The owner/Cab driver Shaady was so personable and made our ride so fun. Our visitors loved touring DC this way also because it gave them a chance to see all the sites without having to walk or worry about driving and finding parking etc. Weather you are from out of town and here to visit or a local, I highly recommend them.
Response: Thank you!

National Bonsai & Penjing Museum: what do users think?


Madhu Kalepu: A place for garden, nature lovers! Time well spent by exploring various Bonsai Trees, fresh air. At this place, you can find 3 Bonsai pavilions Japanese, Chinese, North American. And, a great place for photos. There is parking near this place which is free, entry is free. No crowd when we visited during the weekend

arm: Truly one of the coolest places I have ever been to in my entire life. It's FREE which is AMAZING given the current climate. We went when it was getting pretty cold out but you do a bunch of walking so you don't even notice! I'm not sure I had ever seen a bonsai tree in real life prior and getting to see dozens and dozens and dozens of ancient trees was spectacular beyond words. They do have the inside of the building closed off where other bonsais reside, which isn't mentioned on the website, but I assume this is due to covid or possibly the weather. Worth it regardless and would give a 50/10 if I could Outside of the bonsai displays was something even more magical - an entire garden of herbs, vegetables, flowers, and other plants. They have the garden sectioned off to show you how they are/were used in history, such as how certain plants are used for dyes in clothing, or to help with a severe illness, or even just an everyday cold remedy. It was SO neat and I learned so much. I cannot wait to go back in the spring and summer when everything will be blooming and sprawling. There are also pathways uphill across the main road into the woods that show even more plant life. It's a very easy uphill walk and there is even a pond at one point nestled in a cute little nook with benches. This is truly one of the most magical places I have ever visited.

Alan Bishop: Beautiful little open air museum of bonsai trees. Loved seeing all the different styles of trees they had on display. Unfortunately some exhibits were closed, so if you're making a visit out here just for this, perhaps call to check what's open first. Would have liked to see the penjings but they weren't available to see at the time.

Prem Mithilesh Morampudi: As of 02/12/2022:Everything is emptied out and closed for the pandemic/winter or for staff only. We wish we’d have know this before. Trying to make the visitors aware of what’s going on so they’re not disappointed like us.

Zeyu Hu: An amazing museum with some beautiful Bonsai and Pengjing. The best part is that this is a free museum! It houses some of the most spectacular Bonsai and Pengjing trees you will find anywhere. A few of the trees were over 500 years old! If only these trees could talk…

B Arora: Went on a weekday- was not crowded at all. There's no charge to enter. A little out of the city- need a car. Right behind the entrance/ visitors centre. Small-ish collection but well maintained and some stunning bonsais. John Nakas bonsais are on display. A lot of hornets in the area though!

Ashton Lockhart: I came here by chance and immediately made room in my schedule to come back the next day. If you are even remotely interested in plants, bonsai, or anything zen, I highly recommend. Leaving the garden, I felt extremely relaxed and in awe of the trees and their beauty. One of my favorite places on the earth, I can't wait to go back :)

Benjamin Allen: First bonsai museum in the world according to one of their plaques. Very cool collection. It's a peaceful place to walk about.

Musavvir Mahmud: Nice place with lots of bonsai. However, the place looked little lack of maintenance, the background wasn’t up to the mark.

Jozlantice Tucker: It wasn't the biggest and the tropical area was closed for the summer but the bonsai were beautiful and it also had an indor area with ac.

Dumbarton Oaks Museum: what do users think?


David Frank: This is a great museum tucked out of the way in the hills above Georgetown. It is a small museum but the collection is extensive. They cover both Byzantine and Meso-American artifacts. The information provided in each case it does a great job explaining what the artifact is and why it is culturally relevant. The museum is free so you can't beat the price.

Traveling Terrezzas: This was my favorite place of all of Washington DC. You will never know this place existed as a tourist or to visit. I feel like it is a hidden gem. It is tucked away from the city center and all the monuments and memorials and within the estate, you are like it this beautiful enchanting garden with peace. The gardens are pretty big with so many different aspects to it from mossy stairs, and breathing green houses and vibrant flowers with rabbits scurrying away with fruit growing from the trees. I wanted to stay there forever. It was such a refreshing place to be. As of right now there is timed entry for the afternoon and it gets sold out so def buy your tickets in advance. The tickets are cheap.

Mellissa Schulman: The museum was pretty awesome. Some of the items were amazing to see. I was disappointed for two reasons. First, their website makes reference to their amazing gardens. There was no access to these gardens. And second... The gift shop was only open from 2:00 to 5:00. If they carried some of the stuff in the theme from the museum, I would have loved to pick up a couple of souvenirs. It's pretty fast going through this museum. It's in an amazing neighborhood. Remember to bring your covid vaccination card or you will not be admitted

Olga Crawford: Incredible place and collection. Stravinsky and Copland composed music for the place. It is a precious gem in the heart of Georgetown.

Mack Hudson (Don Sanordi): Absolutely beautiful gardens and museum however you'll have to pay two separate fees to enjoy both. To add to the problem, you can only buy the tickets online through a smart phone and it's situated in a dead signal area. Worth a visit but plan well ahead

Fatih Demirci: Both permanent and temporary exhibitions are fantastic. Nice interior design, not too big, friendly staff, clean restrooms, convenient location. If you're planning a quick tour, 30 minutes will be enough. A detailed tour may take up to 2 hours. Not a must see for DC, but a good addition.

Chris Meyer: Historic garden in DC’s Georgetown, gifted to Harvard. Hills with various themed terrace gardens. Also a museum that is worth visiting. Some of the buildings additions architected by luminaries (i.e., Philip Johnson, Robert Venturi. Need online tickets in the age of COVID. Worth a visit, but need to be able to hike a bit to visit the gardens.

TheBoiledghoose: Kudos to the security guards, presumably contractors. They were essentially the face of the museum on our visit. The exhibit spaces presented a truly remarkable collection. American Indian objects were presented in a very western way. But, they don't hide the bias -- it is evident by their use of "Pre-Columbian" when talking about their collections.

George S.: If you want to step back in time and feel like you’re visiting a museum at the start of 2021 then this is the perfect place for you! Prepare to be asked to show proof of COVID vaccination and be given flippant responses on where you can find a mask, which are still required to enter this building. Disappointed by their policies but even more so disappointed by the unhelpfulness and rude attitude of the staff. They flippantly told us that we should get a mask from CVS “around the corner” when in fact Google Maps can verify that the nearest CVS is at least an 8 minute walk away. Why they can’t have masks for visitors to use I can’t understand.

KAVEH JAHED: Well crafted museum and beautiful gardens. The front desk host, Page, was professional and informative. He made the experience first class

Big Bus Tours Washington DC Visitor Center: what do users think?


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: 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!

D'Andrea Wright: GREG was so awesome! He was funny, organized and gave us lollipops. The bus ride was also fun! However, the entire right side of the bus didn't have working audio, so I missed out on all of the historical information and it was super cold.

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: 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: 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: 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.

Alla Kotlyarova: It can only be good if you hop on the bus at the stop number 1 and don't leave the bus. I purchased a deluxe ticket that comes with a night tour and a 2-day tour. I got to use the night tour only. I couldn't find the bus for the day tour at the designated stops. The bus didn't stop twice on those stops, even though they saw Mr. I did city sightseen bus in NYC and it was great! Lots of busses which come frequently. This big bus in DC was horrible. If I knew, I would just purchased a night tour with no stops.

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.

Latoya Fletcher: We purchased the red line tours...which I thought was a good enough for my group...it started at Union station...we we're lucky to have decided to do our tour on a Sunday as we were lucky to get free parking on the street and more importantly if the town was that busy I would not want to see a week day. We hoped to start the tour as they opened .. but finding the place took us some time so we lost 2 hrs...we had to move fast through the various stop and we could not come off at most, we choose a few and we still had to run to catch the last bus. This tour offers more than you can do in one day...so choose carefully or book another day ..

ARTECHOUSE DC: what do users think?


Brian Copes: It was my first time going here and it was nice experience. They do not let you in early so I would not get there too early because you’ll need to wait for designated time slot. They provide an overview prior to going into the room with a video. It was a visual cool experience with sounds, video and lighting. I think we spent about 20 minutes in the main room and then probably 20 in the other two rooms. It’s a solid 45 minute experience if you are not drinking at the bar. Yes, they have a bar inside the main room. Also, they do have a coat room for guests as well. It’s educational and fun. It’s pricey about $25 dollars with taxes on the weekend but it was worth it. Staff was helpful with explaining the various exhibits to the guests. The mens bathroom was plainly nasty. Yeah, I would try to avoid it if you can. Overall, I would recommend this place for an interactive art experience!
Response: Hi Brian, thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review. We’re glad you enjoyed our space. Thank you for sharing your honest feedback and bringing restroom cleanliness to our attention. We strive to create a positive experience for all of our guests.

Jacob Blandford: This is one of the wildest art exhibits I’ve been to and I mean that in the best way. A total sensory experience. The visuals are so vibrant and the music creates an amazing ambiance, all of it built on a foundation of neurology and science. You could spend hours enjoying the show. It was fairly busy on a Saturday night but still plenty of room to make it feel like you had your own space.
Response: Hi Jacob, thanks for visiting ARTECHOUSE DC and for taking the time to leave a review. Thank you for the kind words about our space. With all of the things to do in DC we really appreciate that you took the time to check out ARTECHOUSE.

Monica Cortes: I went with my friends after having had great experiences at the NY location. This installation by Quayola was beautiful and entrancing. It was so interesting to see how the coding connected to the musical instruments manipulated and altered the colors and projections. There was a really nice walk through on the side that gave more detail to the exhibit and a bar with drinks centered around the design and theme of the installation. We had a wonderful time and can't wait to see what other installation arrive this year.
Response: Hi Monica, thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review. We’re glad you've enjoyed multiple ARTECHOUSE spaces. Thank you for sharing your feedback. We strive to create a positive experience for all of our guests.

Kenny T: A truly Amazing Place!! Gift shop is Great! The Art is Absolutely Beautiful! You can purchase NFT Art, they have a Bar! You can sit anywhere and it will truly be a one of a kind experience!!
Response: Hi Kenny, thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review. We’re glad you enjoyed all of our offerings. We hope you’ll visit ARTECHOUSE DC again in the future to experience our next interactive digital art exhibit.

Lydia Kennedy: Went to the Pixelbloom installment April 2022. This art installation is incredibly cool! It’s all a 3-D feeling and the colors change at different times, see pictures. It’s such an interesting way to showcase art in a digital form! What’s also really cool is that the artists change every few months so you’ll always get a new experience. Highly recommend if you are a local or a tourist in DC! It’s located right near the Smithsonian, so easy to get to if you’re downtown for a day full of monuments. Parking garage attached as well.
Response: Hello Lydia, We appreciate your positive feedback about your experience. We take pride in serving our customers and hope to see you again soon!

So Maryn: This is for the Transient exhibit. They say it will take 45 - 60 mins for the exhibit but more likely it is an 30 minute experience. I assume the exhibit is scaled down due to the pandemic as I recall it being more richer or more exhibits in prior to pandemic times. If you like modern art this exhibit may appeal to you as you experience what machines can do with transient art and music. You get to see some of the code for the music as the screens constantly change. I would of liked more descriptions throughout the exhibit on the artistic and tech process for this exhibit. The art was in digital strokes and points on different size “canvas” screens. Good photo opps. One main area with a piano and ceiling through floor “canvas” followed by a smaller adjacent room and two small adjacent rooms and a hallway. Also it would be amazing to have an interactive component to this as human feedback interacting with the code can generate fresh art and music.
Response: Hi So, thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review. We’re glad you enjoyed Transient: Impermanent Paintings. Thank you for sharing your honest feedback and bringing your preference of interactive installations to our attention. We strive to create a positive experience for all of our guests.

Yvonne Marbury: Artechhouse was such a interesting place to visit. The digital displays grab your attention and you cant look away, Id even say its mesmerizing. There was 3 rooms with displays, with some interactive things to try.Very interesting show to watch the life of a neuron.
Response: Hi Yvonne, thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review. We’re glad you enjoyed our space. We hope you’ll visit ARTECHOUSE DC again in the future to experience our next interactive digital art exhibit.

Ethan Anderson: It's definitely a unique experience. The exhibits were very fun to see, the drinks were good, and the staff were very friendly. Part of me expected a little more (not the exhibit itself, those were awesome, I just thought there'd be more to see) but I am glad I saw it. It took us about 30 min to walk through and then spent another 20 at the bar.
Response: Hi Ethan, thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review. We’re glad to hear that the team helped you enjoy your time in our space . Thank you for sharing your honest feedback about your expectations. We strive to create a positive experience for all of our visitors.

Nazanin Malek: Artechouse was such a amazing experience to to have in a rainy day, when you are not sure what to do! it takes you out of where you are for a while. But Honestly I expected bigger place and more to show, or some different songs.It worth one time to try.
Response: Hi Nazanin, thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review. We’re glad you were able to escape your daily routine in our space. Thank you for sharing your honest feedback and bringing your expectations to our attention. We strive to create a positive experience for all of our guests.

Mike: This was my second time coming here and both times it was a great experience. I was impressed with the quality of the digital art and the interactive art displays. The main roow was just awesome with blossoms. The first time we went we could make trees grow with raising our arms it was very interactive and fun. The digital art was very high definition. The side rooms was fun to watch and each interactive piece was tons of fun. Lots of people taking videos of the blooming flowers. I would highly recommend it. Wish we could have kept the cardboard pieces on the drinks but oh well.
Response: Hi Mike, thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review. We’re glad you enjoyed the installations and XR Bar. We hope you’ll visit ARTECHOUSE DC again in the future to experience our next interactive digital art exhibit.

Big Bus Tours Washington DC: what do users think?


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: 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: 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!

Roger & Ashley Freese: This is one of the best experiences I have had in DC in the many years I've been visiting. Ms. Gayle was amazing and gave us plenty of time to snap good photos as well as take in the scenery. It's really amazing the amount of growth the area has seen through Georgetown and Reston as well as the additions in D.C.
Response: Roger and Ashley; Thank you for sharing these wonderful photos. It’s so lovely to see our guests thriving and sharing their experiences here! Take care!

Samantha Carp: None of our busses had AC at the bottom and I really wish they drove threw the Arlington cemetery like I thought but they just pull up & drop you off. Then they was 45mins late picking a stop up & my mother almost missed her flight because we expected to be back by our car in time to drop her off and I tried contacting the Big bus company but they said there was nothing they could do & didn't know why it was late.
Response: Hi Samantha Carp thank you for taking the time to leave us your honest feedback.

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.!

Jodie Martin: We have used Big Bus Tours in several cities throughout the US and have never been disappointed! DC tour was fantastic! You have to keep in mind DC can have closures for different reasons so just download the app and check to see if any events are happening and if there is a slow doen for pickup. You can literally watch the buses on the app. Some stops may be closed for sifferent reasons, again, doenload the app it will tell you. All employees are so friendly and very helpful! Gregory was very upbeat, friendly, and just a top notch nice man. We watched him stop traffic for a girl on crutches who was trying to cross the street. Night tour is a MUST!! You see several different things that aren't on the day hop on hop off. It includes a stop at the Lincoln monument and the entire city is beautiful at night. We were lucky enough to have Ms. Gale for our night tour and she was the best!!! Lots of fun and very entertaining! We will definitely be recommending to others for their visits and will continue using big bus tours!
Response: Jodie! Your pictures are fabulous! What courage to place your vision on this forum. Thanks for the encouraging feedback. Please refer us to family and friends. We appreciate your support!

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.

Mack Ivy: Our tickets were purchased Monday for Thursday night tour and said "meeting time 07:45 PM" and we arrived in line before that. Gregory was talking at front of the line, but us at the back could not hear him. I had my hand up for several minutes to ask him to repeat what he was saying but he indicated that he would answer me later. Later never came, and after several busses were full at the top, Gregory finally spoke to us at the end of the line and told us to return tomorrow. We are leaving town tomorrow, so that was not an option. He told us to sit on the bottom of the bus. I can post some very disappointing photos at ground level with cars in the way or monuments on the other side of the bus and passenger heads in the way. Our bus Dionte did his best to make the most of a situation that he did not create. This was my son's only chance to see the monuments at night and I don't know how the BigBus management can make it up to us since they obviously overbooked the busses and our views were blocked throughout the tour.
Response: Mack Ivy, we pride ourselves on providing exceptional service, so we are disappointed to hear that your visit with us was anything less than satisfactory. With the unprecedented concert and last minute security plan reveal, we were forced to close last minute. If we had known this prior to, we certainly would not have sold tickets or promoted service. We attempted to run as long as we could until local authorities shut down the roads. Thank you for the feedback.

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!!

National Mall: what do users think?


LISA HANEY: It's a beautiful place with numerous monuments and museums based on the History of America. Very interesting and informative. Can easily spend a day here by just strolling through the entire area visiting all the memorials. There's a lot of walking involved. It would be a pleasant experience. If you decide to visit the museums, it may take more than a day. So plan accordingly.

Saiprabhu B: It's a beautiful place dotted with numerous monuments and museums throwing light on the History of America. Very interesting and informative. Can easily spend a day here by just strolling through the entire area visiting all the memorials. There's a lot of walking involved, but if weather holds good (not so hot/cold), it would be a pleasant experience. It was slightly drizzling when we were there and so we loved all the walking and could go on and on without getting tired. If you decide to visit the museums, it may take more than a day. So plan accordingly.

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: 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: 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: 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: 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: 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.

Union Market: what do users think?


LayCitizen critique: "Nice place to sample food while getting cooking ingredient" Every stand is unique; none of them cater the same type of food and goods. Offering the chance to sample food with a good price, plus sale unique ingredients and knives. Hopefully, more of the old Union Market's energy and history in this area. P.S. The stand:Pudding has fantastic bourbon bread pudding.

Jennifer Trent: Fun local food hall with a few small shops. A few of the restaurants we wanted to try weren’t open when we were there, but still all found delicious things to eat. My fried shrimp tacos from The District Fishwife were great. The strawberry ice cream from The Creamery was also delicious.

Ido Simyoni: Many food options to choose from and good variety of cuisines . Went for the salmon bowl and shrimp tacos and loved it. My colleague tried the pasta place and said it was good too. Definitely will go back . Only downside was that many place were closed when we got there (Thursday - 7:15pm)

Kev- keepingitreal: Union Market offers a Welcome and Friendly Atmosphere with a wide variety of Vendors with available options to choose from. But I am very disappointed with my Burger not being cooked as well done. Plenty of free street parking spaces available along with a free parking lot.

ESB NYC: This is DC‘s riff on the now somewhat common food hall and merchandise market. Since we were visiting from out of town and staying fairly close by, we were happy to find the diversity of cuisines and many reasonably priced options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There are some cool features like ping-pong tables at street level and a large rooftop deck with seating. This review is as of April 20 22 and it seems like some of the stalls may still be closed due to Covid or perhaps maybe they’ve permanently closed but there is still a lot of good stuff going on, coffee, Ramen, bagels, dumplings, donuts, ice cream, Italian pastries and more… If you’re in the area or passing by, it’s definitely worth stopping in to check out.

Brianne Fischer: We visited yesterday for the first time in a long time — we were pleasantly surprised by the number of food vendors and the liveliness. We ordered Thai street food chicken Pad Thai and it was average— a little dry and too much spice on the bean sprouts. It is an entirely gluten free menu though, so I will probably try something else in the future. In general there seemed to be plenty of gluten free options indicated on each places menu which is really nice. We briefly visited Hi-Lawn which didn’t allow beverages from downstairs— while I get they are just another vendor, and they need to make money from alcohol, having to down my drink at the entrance was a downer. I would encourage Hi Lawn and Union Market to work something out to make it a more seem less experience. Finally— many places closed a bit early for a Saturday evening— so beware! We arrived just in time. We stayed for a while and could tell had more places been open they would have been patronized. See photo!

Irsan Sutanto: Went to DC many times but never came here and finally we came here on memorial day weekend. Lots of choices of food, meats, seafood and drinks. Will comeback again later. Recommended when visiting DC. Short walk from our hotel.

Kimberly Humphries: Really nice market I haven’t been in years. My mom used to take me when I was a little girl. Things have truly changed and I can appreciate it now that I’m older. Very family friendly and unique environment. I arrived early on Saturday and the vendors was preparing to open. Some vendors were already open like bagels and coffee shops. There is a lot of seating all over. The restroom was clean and not busy. I can’t wait to go back and take a nice book to read while enjoying some great food.

Brigitta Danyi: If you have plan for the day, and you don’t have time to seat down at the restaurant, this place perfect for grab and go,or have a quick lunch. Salamon burgers to po-boy, gumbo sushi cheese steaks Egyptian food bbq, smothie and sweets, all in one place. Price is good my eggplant parm. sandwich from the mozzarella bar was huge I had enough for dinner ,taste was also amazing ! And don’t forgot about the four paws they can have something delicious too.

Traveling Terrezzas: Such a cool market with so many vendors with variety of food, it was so hard to chose one!!! But the market is filled with mostly food to take out. There are a few stands that is for fresh seafood and a butcher and bakery but the space is mostly dedicated to food vendors. There is space right night to like an alley where most people seem to hang however if during the day, take the elevator or stairs up to the Hi-Lawn. There are tables there were you can eat on the rooftop. But don't get too excited. The views are not spectacular- just the street, industrial area that they are working on. Also behind the behind near the loading dock is a cute mural as well to take a cute photo.

Margaret Iannone: We took a family trip to DC in hopes to pack in all we could over Memorial Day weekend. Unlimited Biking was highly recommended and our amazing guide, Joe, did not disappoint. He tailored the tour to what our group was looking for - learning about the monuments, but having fun while doing it. Joe was super knowledgeable and kept us moving - he was the perfect fit for our group! If you are visiting DC, I highly recommend this bike tour - seeing the monuments, especially at night, was incredible. Ask for Joe - he’s the best!

Rebecca Michaele Lynch: I highly highly recommend this experience! I only had a day to take in DC and this was so perfect. I kept saying to myself I couldn’t believe it was only $54 for what I was getting. I wish I packed a snack (banana or nuts) and was happy I brought a small backpack to carry extra water and my wallet (the pouch can really only fit a phone and keys). Those were my two biggest takeaways. I also recommend making sure small children can take direction quickly and can be ready to handle street intersections. I’d absolutely do this again and am so grateful I found it! All staff were so nice and accommodating.

Maggie Blackwood: This was the best part of our trip to DC by far!! We did the night tour as a family of 5. Our tour guide James was super friendly, accommodating and phenomenal at providing a great overview of the history with interesting tid bits for adults and kids alike. It was a great way to see the National Mall in the daylight through to everything lit up! We would highly recommend to others.

Stephanie Olebara: I did the 9 am cherry blossom tour and it was great! Our tour guide Judy was very knowledgeable about the city and was also very friendly. She always made sure the group was together and safe as well. Even as a DMV native, I learned and saw a lot of new things in the city thanks to Judy! It wasn’t too crowded in the city and the weather was beautiful. The tour was thorough and punctual as well. Definitely recommend this experience!

Michele Perrell: This was our first excursion when we arrived in DC. We are so happy that we chose this first. It ended up being the highlight of our trip. John was an excellent tour guide. He is really knows his city’s history. He got us up close to many memorials and monuments. We learned so much about each site! Doing this left our other days for museums and such. Highly recommend you do this if it is your first visit to DC.

Heidi Collins: Great experience. Saw a lot around the Mall in a short amount of time and enjoyed the Segway challenge! Make sure you wear good shoes for standing. Bill, our tour guide was excellent at giving fun details and pointing out interesting buildings on Pennsylvania Ave. Did not get close up of Jefferson or FDR memorial.

Alex Nee: Beth did an excellent job with our tour of 12, including 5 children. She was patient and clear about stop times, informative with destinations and gave nice local recommendations. We had a great time riding around and seeing the sites.

Vanessa Albanesi: I joined the Memorial & Monuments 3-hour bike tour and I had the best time! That's the best way to explore DC, we took our time to visits the touristic spot whilst our super nice and prepared guide Nadia was gaving us info and local insights about the places. Amazing experience!! Highly recommended!

Dena Hayes: This was a great tour! We picked the 2 hour cherry blossom tour. I wanted to make sure my 11 year old could keep up, plus I definitely wanted to see the cherry blossoms. We got checked in quickly and on our way. Alex was our guide, and she was amazing! So friendly, accommodating, and lots of knowledge. My son asked when we come back to do the tour again, and have Alex as our guide! Highly recommend

Nichole James: We did the Segway tour with Joe and it was a great experience. He was very knowledgeable and fun. He made sure everyone was safe on the segways! We saw many different monuments and all around the mall area. We went back and visited the suggested museums. Very glad we did this tour.

Lincoln Memorial: what do users think?


Lee Loo: Reality Vs. Expectations 😊 These pictures I posted are reality . The place is crowded with tourists or locals , just people all over the place . It was fun , a lot of walking going around all the tourists spots In Washington . Going to Lincoln Memorial is quite a challenge for your feet. Make sure you have a good pair of sneakers 😊 or rent a scooter or bicycle . It was fun going around on scooter . Just need your phone and credit card. Different scooter has different price. Goodluck 😊 Lincoln Memorial reminds me of the movie “ Night at the Museum” . Lots of tourist taking pictures . Nice to sit down after a long walk and pictures taken . Breathe in and breathe out and enjoy .

Nathan Santos: I flew to DC in November. We decided to visit the Lincoln Memorial and Washington Monument. No regrets! The park is very historic with lots to see. The souvenir shop nearby is worth checking out. They have postcards and other gifts. It was checked off my bucket list.

Sam Buck: We went to DC for our 1-year anniversary to do a complete walk-around of the city. The Lincoln Memorial was absolutely breathtaking. There's so much history in this beautiful building. Truly amazing

Erica Coker: My favorite attraction/memorial of the trip. It's beautiful. The reflecting pool leading up to the memorial is breathtaking. We visited in the afternoon riding scooters from the Washington monument area. Such a fun afternoon.

Bethany Wang: Lovely monument and the memories of great history that happened here is amazing! It is well taken care of and honored. I recommend visiting If you are young, old, single, a couple, or a family. Beautiful place to just sit and relax.

Vishal Chaudhary: Good memorial. Well maintained. Washroom is also available here plus there are few fast food vendors also here. Do wear comfortable clothes and shoes as you will have to walk quite a lot to see everything around this place. Even white house is at a walking distance.

A To Z Sales 1: This was a check off my bucket list. This was my favorite part of my whole trip, I didn't want too leave. You would have thought I would have taken more pictures, but my emotions got the best of me. It was extremely crowded, everyone seemed to be drawn in by this man, "who was larger than life."

Shine Thomas: Great place to see, the statue is very huge in size and the over all memorial looks marvelous, with lot of historical value. You get a totally different vibe when you are here. One could seee the national monument war memorial Korean war memorial, Whitehouse etc around this park. Reflecting pool and jefferson memorial are few other major attractions around this place.and the good thing is all of these are located with in walkable distance. And could cover all these with less than half a day.

Kristen Alger: One of my favorite monuments! Including a few vintage family shots from the early 1920s along with recent views 2022. Standing the test of time...100 years!

Veronique Benhayoun: Went here today with my son. A real sight to be seen. Literally amazing. If you're visiting and have never been here, GO, you won't regret it.

Jean Bell: Free for kids under 2! Took our baby godson here and he loved it! There was even a nice area for children under 2 to play in. It had a boat and little jungle themed play area! We explored the whole place and the people there were very informative. They showed even us a lion and leopard! I took off a star because the rainforest walk through closed off their canopy area for renovations this time we went. Perfect way to spend a couple hours on a rainy day! P.S. The earthquake exhibit and recreation was awesome and informative!

Gayle Schultz: What an excellent adventure it was to visit the Smithsonian Museums! My only problem, was 5 days was not enough time for me. I stayed in a nice hostel walking distance to the museums. A healthy walking distance. Did take a bus a few times. Grateful to everyone that works in all parts of each museum. The hostel offered evening outings in DC, but walking all day I needed to rest when back to the hostel. Favorites were the art museums and the New African American Museum.

Flora Cooper: This is an amazing museum. You can spend the whole day here. The indoor rain forest is impressive. There are butterflies surrounding you and it's just like you're in a real rain forest. There're also many other sections. You can see different types of animals, like jelly fish, various types of butterflies. This is also a white crocodile. In the ocean section, you get to touch sea cucumbers. There's also a cafeteria. You're not supposed to bring outside food in, so you can get food there if you want to eat. The prices are okay, but it's very crowded. It's a good place for adults and kids.

Marcos Lopes da Silva: I went at this museum in 2009, in a trip with my job friends of Brazilian Air Force. That's a Very interesting place to visit. If you like the aviation and space vericles...

Jaime Nava: Great for the kids!Just recommend to come early and bring plenty of water!

Perks Advisor: The Smithsonian Castle is one of the many Smithsonian buildings located on the Mall. It is fun to view with its unique architecture and the beautiful garden that surround the Castle. Often times tourists are more focused on the other Smithsonian Museums but this is a great one to relax or to eat outside nearby.

Jonathon Koerner: This museum is someplace I remember going on field trips for the day. The overall size is quite large to do in one session unless you stay on course. I love all the information they have available, and some interactive areas. The food is expensive, but what do you expect on dc. I find it’s more of an experience to get food outside from one of the local trucks(falafels are good). As many people have commented you may need to buy tickets ahead of time during the covid era.

Daniel Bruce: I mean, you need like a month to see everything, there is just so much and it is all good and educational. Plan on at least a week here.

Michael Kojetin: World class museums but extremely subpar mismanagement and handling of reopening. Don’t even waste your time trying to get a “timed” ticket for entry as they are impossible to get for most museums. First only a handful are released for each day a month prior. They offer “limited” tickets each day online at 11am but they are next to impossible to get. My wife and I have tried for several days during our stay in DC to get one. The technology behind their allocation system is broke. Two days in a row my wife and I simultaneously tried to follow the cumbersome instructions to get a ticket and we were both met with web page error codes and glitches that prevented our completing the ticket process. We were able to get tickets to the Air and Space museum with a last minute timed ticket and the museum was great however the reasoning behind the time tickets is fundamentally flawed and does little if anything to protect the patrons or employees from anything COVID related. They need to reopen completely and get rid of this timed ticket nonsense. For an institution staffed with the words best academics I would have expected a much better handling of this!

Charles Simmons: This is the first time our sons have visited DC (both LOVE history). Would've loved to visit the museums. Unfortunately all museums are limited attendance and no tickets were available. Not a good first time visit. :(

D'LiteFull Harmon: This was great for us! If you have time I recommend the two day pass, that way you can do the entire tour without getting off the bus, then use the remainder of day one and all of day two visiting individual stops.

Robert Birmele: We unfortunately got off the bus at stop #8 . Went to the national galleryWrnt back to the bus stop and had to wait for over an hour for the bus. There was no way to contact them other then chat, a sad jokeIf want to stay on the bus then it's not bad. Don't hop off
