Private DC Tours, LLC: what do users think?


Kathy Walker: We had a private tour with Eshan as our guide. It was such a wonderful tour, a highlight of our trip. Our party included myself (age 46), my husband (age 49), my mother (age 73) and our daughter (age 19) and son (age 18). We chose the moonlight tour which lasted from 7-10pm. Eshan picked us up at our Airbnb and the vehicle was very nice and clean. Eshan was extremely friendly and made us feel so comfortable and by the end of the night it felt like he was a longtime friend. He was very knowledgeable about all the DC history and each location he took us to. He took wonderful pictures which were so much better then the ones my camera took so I was so thankful. He was patient with us and kept us on a good pace. He took us to the Jefferson Memorial, Air Force Memorial, Pentagon, Arlington cemetery, the fountain, Washington monument/tidal basin, the capital , library of Congress and even though it was close to our end time he knew we really wanted to see the Lincoln memorial and he went above and beyond to take us there as well. He was so amazing with us. Our kids and mom truly enjoyed our tour as well. I have a health condition where I have hard time with heat and long periods walking, by taking the night tour and with Eshan driving us to each monument was the only way I was able to see as much as we did. We are so thankful and recommend him to anyone interested in truly seeing DC without all the big tours and crowds. It was so personal and less stressful. Their cost was so reasonable compared to other private tours and quality of the tour was top notch. Also, our son left his AirPod case in the vehicle and Eshan was kind enough to bring it the next night to our Airbnb home. Again great service above the rest ! Thank you Eshan for wonderful memories my family will never forget.
Response: Thanks for the kind review!

Erica Widdoss: Esaan was our tour guide and he was fantastiiiiic! He has so much knowledge of the area, he had pictures and videos that he would show about the next monument or memorial we were on our way to. We got right up and close to each one. I only expected to see a few things. He went above and beyond. He took us to sooo many more places than I expected. He knows the route very well! We spent 10 to 20 minutes at each location depending on the memorial/monument. The vehicle was spacious. We had 2 adults and 3 children. Thank you so much for a great experience!! We appreciate you!
Response: Thanks for the kind review.

Jocelyn Cardona: Awesome tour from beginning to the end! The responses I received when I was inquiring were instantaneous; very user friendly website and the Tour guide that we had, Bruce, was the best! He was very knowledgeable, amiable and helpful. I recommend this company to anyone who is looking for a hassle free private tour.
Response: Thanks for the review!

Nellie L: Our driver was Bruce. His knowledge of history was deep. He was able to answer the questions we asked. He took us to several memorials. We were able to fit off and spend time at some of the memorials. The vehicle was very comfortable. Bruce was very professional and courteous. I recommend Private DC Tours to anyone coming to DC. The night tour of the memorials is a must!!! I especially liked we had our own tour guide versus being part of a large group on a bus.
Response: Thanks for the review!

Lauretta Suneborn: Bruce did a terrific job of navigating around DC on a Saturday during the cherry blossom festival with all the traffic and crowds! He shared stories of history with my family in the middle of intense traffic. He was cool under pressure and made it a very pleasant experience. He showed us a lot in a small amount of time! My family has lived in the area for over 30 years and Bruce had plenty to teach and remind us. We reminisced about how much the city has changed, sharing stories and laughter. We would love to tour with him again. Highly recommend!
Response: Thanks for the review.

Mat B: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, ValueEhsan was great - very knowledgeable on all DC’s historic sites. He allowed us to customize our tour and incorporated some of his recommended points of interest as well.
Response: Thanks for sharing your experience.

Wendy Delp: Bruce was fabulous! He was knowledgeable, professional, and an all around high caliber individual. He made us feel right at home, and we hope to stay in touch. He went above and beyond to make our experience memorable. The vehicle was immaculate and very comfortable. He provided great anecdotes and historical facts, and he knew the best way to experience each site. He even tailored the tour to our interests. This was the best way to experience DC! I highly recommend this tour!
Response: Thanks for your kind words.

E J: After confirming pick up by text, Ehsan picked us up on time at our hotel in a clean, cool and comfortable Suburban. It was great to customize the tour to our interests. He is knowledgeable, engaging and organized. He makes good use of photographs and videos to teach about a site or monument prior to arrival at the location. The 2.5-hour afternoon tour was perfect for our two children. He even dropped us off at our restaurant reservation after the tour. Highly recommended!!
Response: Thanks for the feedback.

Christie Wagner: We pretty much had 4 hours in DC before moving on to our next destination and none of us had ever been there. With museums still shut down from the pandemic, I thought, "how can we see everything we need to see historically that is outdoors before we leave in the morning...and make it entertaining for 2 teenage boys"? Insert DC Tours. Bruce was our tour guide and he was exactly who we needed! He texted us in advance to confirm our appointment and asked us to text him back when we were in the lobby. He showed up a few minutes early, gave us the rundown, and we hopped into an SUV. Bruce had his route and let us know that he was skipping past a few things until later because they are much better to see lit up at night. He was spot on with his logic! We saw it all - Lincoln Memorial, WWII Memorial, Capitol, White House...and he had stories and history to go with it. He grew up in the area, so he knew it well. We enjoyed getting to know a little about Bruce along the way, and he told us a few history side stories about that we never knew about - one about Lincoln's son even threw off our 13-year old Lincoln fan! I cannot say enough about Bruce and DC Tours...they made our DC night the greatest and we are all excited to come back to DC (for a bit longer next time). Thank you so much, Bruce! Services: City tours , Private tours
Response: Thanks for the feedback!

Toni Sinker-Strang: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, ValueEshan was a great tour guide giving lots of historic information along the tour. He asked us what locations were a priority for us to see while we were in DC. I would use him again and again. He was patient and knowledgeable.
Response: Thanks for the kind review.

Custom Tours of DC - Private Tour Agency: what do users think?


Lee Winchell: We couldn't have asked for a better tour for our family of 4! We visited all the sites we were looking forward to, including finding relatives and friends both at Arlington and the Vietnam Memorial. Our tour guide Buck was the BEST we've ever had on any of our travels. He was great with involving kids and getting them thinking to ask their own questions, had so much information that was NOT on a boring script, and you could just tell he loves what he does! We'll definitely reach out again and would recommend to all our family and friends. Thank you!!

Sandee Guzman: I recently organized a group activity for my work colleagues. We are a group from New Jersey and we got together for the first time in 2 years. We have about 50 people combined from the US to Europe and Brazil. Because of our time restraint, I arranged a 4 our tour of the DC area with all the important landmarks. I reached out to Custom Tours and connected with Adam and he accommodated my group. We were connected with Debbie our tour guide and I cannot say enough about how fantastic she was. She is the sweetest person, funny, thorough in her explanations of the landmarks and made sure we saw all the sites despite the time restrictions we had. It was the perfect combination of riding on a bus and walking. My colleagues were so please with the tour especially the ones that were in DC for the first time. I am grateful that this tour worked out and thankful for Debbie. Please ask for her for her if you have a trip to DC for work or pleasure. They really cater to large groups!

Pat Flora: The tour starts the Navy memorial, and our tour guide Britney started as soon as all were there....."early", which makes 100% sense, you never see common sense applied anymore however Britney was all over it. With early start Britney took her time and was informative on all points of interest along the way. You could tell she enjoyed her job and the challenge of being tested. The monuments truly have a different appearance at night. I was honored to be able to share these sites and educational memories with my family. Thank you Britney for your insight and vast knowledge of DC.

Michelle Hall: We had a great private night tour for our family group of 35. Our guide Clift was more than accommodating, helpful, nice, and knowledgeable. Would recommend this tour for anyone.

Ashley Iversen: Had a conference in DC and wanted a fun private tour of all the great memorials with our team and Custom Tours of DC fully came through. Easy booking, great price and had a fabulous and funny tour guide, Larry! Everyone left the tour very satisfied and learned a bunch!

Mackenzie Bordelon: I reached out to Custom Tours of DC for a corporate event with tons of specifics and every single request was made without hesitation. Our group of 30 was taken on an executive bus for 90 minutes for a quick version of their tour. We we able to bring wine on board and enjoy the sights for our night tour. They were very accommodating picking us up at our dinner spot and dropping us off at our hotel. Adam was the coordinator for the entire event and he made the process seamless! 10/10 recommend for any groups coming to the DC area.

Anthony Cheng: We had driver Leon, and guide Monti. Both were courteous and helpful, particularly as one in our party needed wheelchair assistance for longer walks. We enjoyed the dusk to night tour of national monuments, took lots of photos. Monti particularly knowledgeable with historical facts, shared generously with us. In 2+ hrs we saw all the major monuments and memorialized with photos. Worth the $$ as walking to all these would have been logistically impossible. I highly recommend this company and its service.

Shirley: Charles and Dave were in charge of our tour on a very hot day in DC. They made every effort and did a wonderful job to make our trip enjoyable and succeeded. Even though some of the things we wanted to see were closed they gave us alternative choices that were wonderful. Would highly recommend them.

Annie Ellis: Everything we hoped for and more! It was so wonderful to connect with Adam to help plan 3 days of 3-4 hour morning tours to maximize our time in DC with my elderly parents in the August heat. We were able to comfortably fit in everything we needed to see and enjoyed visiting the sites at our own pace after being dropped off at the closest spots to make things easier for my parents. We learned so much and had amazing conversations with our extremely knowledgeable and insightful tour guides Bob and Rebecca. Our driver was fantastic and attentive. My folks really enjoyed the VIP treatment. Thank you all for the first-rate experience and beautiful memories!

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

USA Guided Tours: what do users think?


Aaron Renshaw: We took the nighttime DC monument tour in a covered top Sprinter van. Our guide was friendly, attentive, and very knowledgeable about the city. We were visiting in early January so it was super cold and had recently snowed so our guide kept us warm and comfortable also by strategically parking the van or moving it for us to save steps after walking the monuments. Overall, fun and memorable. I'd highly recommend this tour!
Response: Thanks for sharing your great experience! Find us on Instagram & think of us if you ever come back or go to NYC - we offer tours there too!

Rebekah Diaz: Did the night tour with Mr Map! It was great to stop at so many places and take photos. I do wish that the tour guide would have come off the bus to tell us about the different landmarks instead of staying on the bus. It was beautiful to see all the monuments lit up—different than the daytime sights. We chose the closed climate controlled instead of open top because it was rather cold at night (in late April!)! Would recommend.

Vanessa Losey: Thanks for making my dad bday that much more memorable! My dad a senior citizen and the pace was perfect for him, including all the bathroom breaks and patience. Thank you Terry for a tour to remember and for signing to my dad happy birthday!!! Memories to last a lifetime. His service dog loved it too!!!

Teresa Simmons: We took the DC tour on Sunday. Nick was our guide. The tour was a great way to see the sights and learn interesting facts. Nick loves his job and it shows! He was funny and informative! Highly recommend Nick and the 6 hour DC day tour. We had and amazing time!!

Suzanne: We took the dusk to dark, open top bus tour, and it was well worth it! The small group allowed for a much more personalized experience. It was obvious to us that our guide, Nick, truly enjoys his job, and that adds to the experience. He was friendly, knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor, all of which added up to a very comfortable, enjoyable tour! He made it feel like we had a long time friend showing us the many sites. Definitely recommend this tour!
Response: Thanks for traveling with us Share you memories with us on Instagram @usaguidedtours!

Bianca Moskaitis: Nick the @tourgod was one of the most amazing tour guides I’ve ever experienced! His knowledge and charisma made us feel so comfortable. He kept us laughing and on time! He was just a delightful and I’m so glad we got to experience him today! The Mercedes’ sprinter is a beautiful site to see while traveling down Constitution ave and Pennsylvania ave. Such a luxurious site to see🎉🎊 I’m so excited to take another tour with them in the spring! Here are come Loudoun VA wine country 🍷

Tricia Barr: We had a fabulous experience with Alicia as our tour guide and Thomas as our driver. We enjoyed a very informative 6-hour tour with Potomac River cruise. The best compliment was given by my ten year old daughter who is often reluctant to join historical and sight-seeing tours and would far prefer a spring break at a theme park. She said, “I learned so much about my country and I loved learning about all of the hidden meanings of the monuments.” As a parent, I was so happy that she loved the symbolism and significance of all that DC had to offer! Thank you to Alicia for your positive energy and sharing your extensive knowledge of our Nation’s capital!

Shari S: Nick and our driver were awesome. Very knowledgeable. Highly recommend. I took borh the day and the night tour with this company. I highly recommend using this tour company. Parking can be a little difficult and further away then the tour can get you. I am so glad I signed up for these tours. I will make sure to let everyone I know going to any city they service to use them.
Response: We're so glad you had a great time! Share your photos with us on instagram!

Joseph McIntyre: Originally scheduled the daytime tour with the riverboat cruise. Had to change due to flight delays and a mix up with rental cars. They were very accommodating and allowed us to switch the tour last minute to the night tour. Our tour guide, Nick was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Thanks so much for the memories!
Response: Thanks for the positive feedback. We understand that the basis of travel is to embrace the unexpected. Because of this, we are always willing to reschedule. Also, if you are worried that your trip has too many variables, we offer trip insurance to cancel up to the minute before the tour for a full refund (minus the insurance cost).

Lisa Hayes: Great tour that I would highly recommend. Curtis was our driver and nick was our tour guide. Very knowledgeable and had plenty of time at all the stops. They had just taken down the fences at the capitol so we were able to go on the lawn. We did the night tour and they picked us up at our hotel which was perfect since I had just had some foot surgery and walking was difficult. Would recommend this tour to everyone and Great price.

Grand Atlas Private Tours of DC: what do users think?


Marie Navikas: I will echo what others have written ... this is the only way to see D.C.! Having a driver and a guide made our day so enjoyable and enabled us to see so much more than if we had been on our own trying to navigate the busy streets, parking and walking! As one other customer put it, it is worth every penny ... and then some! Our fabulous guide, Nathalie, also pointed out how the SUV was more nimble moving about than the huge tour busses. Our driver, Jose, was a skilled driver and thoughtful. He met us with open umbrellas as we exited one building as it was starting to rain. His car was stocked with cold waters! We were in town from Florida and were met by long-time friends from Pittsburgh ... it was such a nice way for us to get together! We saw and learned more than we expected! Eric has a good thing going!

Donna LaWall: Exquisite packed tour. Best tour I’ve experienced stateside . From the start of each day, sharing the sites and going above everyday to ensure every has an exceptional experience. The knowledge of monuments and historical sites- was extraordinary. Our adventure started with a day tour , a night guided tour and then an additional day tour to Arlington because why would we not ! My struggle with heights and walking slower was accommodated with such grace. We had such a great experience, Run don’t walk to book your vacation adventure with Atlas .

Julie Franklin: 5 gigantic stars for our tour guide, Eric!! He was so informative and fun. He made our tour great!!! Highly recommend this private tour!! It will not disappoint!!

Khaleesi June: This company treated my brother and I like a King and Queen. Truly amazing experience! They were on time at our meet location! They both wore masks, provided hand sanitizer and wipes and also offered cold bottles of water on this very hot day. They were also very thorough with direction throughout DC. Daniel was our driver and he was dressed very professionally and even took the extra step in opening the door for me at every location we stopped at! Bob was our tour guide and man oh man was he a delight! He made it very fun and was highly knowledgeable about everywhere he took us to see! Monuments, Memorials, little unknown facts... Bob was like a walking encyclopedia!!!! We also got done a bit early so I was wondering if the time spent had any correlation with what I paid for and immediately as I spoke to Bob about this concern, he communicated with the communication rep I was dealing with named Eric and Eric immediately called me and gave me some very generous options for accommodations about my concern!! One of the best experiences I ever had!!!! I will definitely be back!!!! They were wonderful!

Lynnetta Windsor: Best Tours Ever!! I reserved a half day & evening tour with Eric prior to bringing my 13 year old grandson to DC for his fall break. He loved Eric's interesting facts and tidbits so much that we added a third tour. Each tour was customized to our list of "must-sees". I have visited & enjoyed the DC mall a dozen times, but this was the first time to have chauffeured transportation along with an expert guide and this is the ONLY way to see DC. I am planning to use Eric again when my next grandson turns 13. Erics tours are definitely worth every penny!!

SJ Dunietz: I've gone on two tours with Grand Atlas Tours and each one has been a truly fantastic experience. He started by creating a customized tour based on my needs and arranged all the details ahead of time. Eric was extremely knowledgeable and provided insight throughout the tour, including many details that even as a native, still surprised me. I'd highly recommend Grand Atlas Tours to anyone that wants a real DC experience with an expert guide.

Amber Rainey: I highly recommend this company for tours of DC. Bob was an incredible guide! He was super knowledgeable and very responsive to questions. He showed us everything on our list and more! He was super helpful in suggesting things to see and where to have both a delicious lunch and incredible afternoon snack. I feel like this was the best way to see all the monuments and important buildings. Viviana was a great driver and really helped get us everywhere safely. If you want an absolutely fantastic tour of DC, chose Grand Atlas.

stevie garcia: My family happened to be in DC at the same time as our friends, so we booked a tour in June 2021. Eric was so knowledgeable. It was humid out and he had cold water for us. We did fun trivia during the drive. He also took photos of us and gave us pointers on the best angles for the photos we took ourselves. I would recommend this tour to everyone.

Troy Schmidt: We started our visit to Washington DC on the highest note possible. Eric and Grand Atlas tours made our visit to all the monuments fun and memorable. He was a master of quizzes and could not be stumped in a number of areas. The driver provided cold water and snacks along the way. Definitely worth the price for our party of 11.

Brett M.: We've been on two Grand Atlas tours and loved them both! We first joined them on one of their public group tours around Lafayette Park at night and it was amazing! Our tour guide Eric showed a real love for what he was doing and left us feeling like we could see DC different even as people who lived there. After that, we hired Grand Atlas when my In-laws came to town. They asked what kinds of history we were into, and then designed a tour that took our Father-in-law to all of these awesome Military historical sites around DC. I can't express how much fun we had discovering all these neat places around DC. Even though my wife and I have lived in DC for years, we never went somewhere we had been before. Thanks Grand Atlas (especially Eric) for such amazing times. Can't wait to bring my family again for another round!

Matt Bilitz: Great family tour and an absolutely wonderful experience with PTW! The communication was superb and the treatment before during and after our tour was heartfelt and friendly! This is the best way to see DC!

Julie Rojas: We used Private Tours of Washington to help plan a spring break trip with our 14 y/o grandson Xavier resulting in a most enjoyable and educational vacation. We opted to take a nighttime monument tour (which was amazing) the first night and a day tour the following day. From our initial contact by telephone to our final farewell we were impressed with the level of professional service provided. After booking we were contacted by email and phone to determine exactly what we wanted to cover during our visit, particularly experiences that would be of interest to our grandson. We then received a tentative agenda to review and received several suggestions from Bill (the owner)that would further enrich this custom experience. In addition to highlighting the usual D.C.monuments, he encouraged us to include the Smithsonian’s Udvar-Hazy Center since our grandson is particularly interested in air/space engineering. As our guide for the day he provided a wealth of information, asked and answered questions and was genuinely interested in Xavier’s impression and knowledge of wartime aircraft. Bill interacted extensively with him, even making recommendations on activities/ possible summer internships related to this field. In addition to a very comfortable ride in a luxury SUV with our excellent driver Shake, my husband and I also thoroughly enjoyed conversing with Bill throughout the day. He is a writer and journalist with a keen interest and knowledge regarding the current political scene. We can highly recommend Private Tours of Washington, and would not hesitate to call upon them on future trips to D.C.

Michael Gerber: My family and I planned a trip to Washington for the first week of the new year. We wanted a tour of the city that was private and personalized, and contacted Private Tours of Washington. Bill, the owner, agreed to be our guide. He showed us more of Washington by car and subway (due to street closures) than we could have ever seen on our own. The whole experience was like a close-up view of history in the making. Something we’ll never forget. Service: Private tours

Kassidy Anderson: Exquisite Tour :) I visited D.C. last month with my mom and sister. Our trip with "Private Tours of Washington" was definitely the highlight of our time there! Bill was so knowledgable and kind, and we each felt that we left our beautiful capital city as much more informed and knowledgable people. Mr. Bill made many inquiries on our interests, and he made sure that these interests were expanded upon. He even recommended other stops along our road-trip from Mississippi to D.C., with stops in North Carolina and Pennsylvania. I have traveled to many areas of the world and taken numerous private tours; however, this tour is one of my favorite experiences. I truly feel that the service and quality are unparalleled, and I intend to recommend this company to any of my friends traveling to the area.

Vonda Livingston: What an amazing experience!!! Oh my goodness there is no better way to see Washington DC!!! The owner Bill was absolutely great to work with and Tony was our tour guide. Such an informative tour!!! PTW customized our tour specifically to us and when I told Bill my Daddy and husband were both veterans, he made sure The U.S. Air Force Memorial was included on the tour as well. We had 3 children, my parents and my husband and I and it was a fabulous tour for every one of us no matter our age. The Tomb of the Unknown Solider was incredibly sobering and watching the Changing of the Guards was something our family will never forget. If you are on the fence re going on a private tour, don't hesitate a minute longer because this was one of the highlights of our travels. This company is fabulous at communication as well. They picked us right up at our VRBO in Old Town Alexandria which was so convenient. Thank you to Tony our tour guide as well as Bill!

Janna Cone: I found Private Tours of Washington last minute once I realized I was way behind in my planning for an official tour of DC. I reached out via email with little hope they would be able to accommodate a private tour for me and 2 friends. The next morning, I got a call directly from the company's owner, Bill. We had the best conversation and he happily agreed to take us on a tour customized to our interests. He was professional, car was nice, the "insider" information was priceless, and we had FUN with him! This would be the only type of tour I would recommend in DC. 5 stars all around! Service: Private tours

Annette Arce: When my co-workers and I had a layover in Washington DC, instead of the usual routine we voted to take a nighttime tour. We went on the internet, compared different companies and picked Private Tours of Washington. I talked to the owner, and he had a driver and tour guide both waiting outside our restaurant with a nice, warm SUV. Everyone had been to DC before, but never had time to be tourists. We had the Lincoln Memorial and other famous monuments all to themselves, with our own expert along to explain everything. PTW turned a winter night in Washington into something special and a very warm memory for all of us.

Alene Cardoza: My boss and his son had a wonderful time in Washington DC thanks to Private Tours of Washington. Bill Thomas and his crew showed them the time of their lives in Washington. The entire staff was very accommodating with a few schedule changes and Irina, Tony, Bah and Bill did such a great job. If you are looking for a class act tour company, this is your best bet! Bill Thomas and his team are a Class Act! Thank you! ~ Alene Cardoza Service: Private tours

Olga Xiroyannis: I used to live in Washington and was back a few weeks go for work. Since it’s been awhile, I decided I might need professional guidance to get reacquainted with some of my favorite places. I called Private Tours of Washington, eventually talking with Bill, the owner, about what I wanted to see. He arranged a three-hour guided tour of Georgetown, DuPont Circle and some other parts of town I’ve always liked. As I hoped, the tour was a real trip down Memory Lane. A lot has changed, but happy to see some things never do, like Kramerbooks still right where I remembered it. What a fantastic nostalgia-filled afternoon. Could not have imagined anything better!

Lachezar Minchev: Amazing Night Tour! We were in Washington for a wedding and decided to stay over for the fireworks. In between we used Private Tours of Washington to see the city at night. Amazing! Bill was a fantastic tour guide. There was nothing he didn’t know. He also kept us in stitches the whole time. I’d recommend this company in a heartbeat. Great tour!

branmorris21: Best way to start our DC vacation. Kareem navigated the streets with ease. And Steve was very informative on everything we were touring. They both were easy to talk to and answered all our questions without a boring explanation. The night was clear and not too busy for the beginning of the holiday weekend. Highly recommend this small group night tour. The price is worth it. Loved it. Thanks guys.
Response: We'll let the team know how much you enjoyed it - and we agree- taking our tour at the very beginning of a visit really puts it all in perspective. Many thanks for the 5 Star review!

Stephanie Matthews: Booked the night tour for the first evening we were in Washington DC. We arrived at meeting place to be greeted by our driver as well as the tour guide. What a wonderful informative experience for my party of three. We appreciated the small group individuality. The driver Kareem as well as tour guide Andrew Evans took the time to answer all questions for my nine year one grandson. They were very cautious when driving, provided water, device charging, and gave so much info at each stop. They allowed plenty of time to explore and even took photos of guest in front of the sites. The tour lasted over 3 hours. The tour guide would walk around with each small group etc., while the driver waited close by ready for pick up. Very impressed with details provided including personal stories and his love for his job and each monument. I would highly recommend for anyone wanting a tour of DC.
Response: Andrew is a former teacher and it shows! We truly enjoyed reading your review- we'll let the team know. Safe travels!

Andyrea Mahon: Cassie and Kareem were absolutely the best guide/driver we could have asked for! So knowledgeable about all the monuments. Cassie relayed information in an exciting and engaging way. I wish she could narrate all of our time in DC! They had cold water for us throughout. Kareem even went and got more ice cold water for our group when we ran low. We learned so much and didn’t want it to end. I would 100% recommend See DC tours!

Chaz Arnold: My wife and I cannot say enough good things about this tour. First of all, the small group size provides an engaging, intimate experience that is much unlike many of the other tours we witnessed during our excursion. The driver, Kareem, was knowledgeable about the city and one of the most genuine people you will ever meet. Our guide, Kassie, was spectacular; she communicated a lot of information about the sights. On several occasions, she answered questions we had about the monuments as if she were reading our minds. Very entertaining. Seeing DC monuments lit up at night is an experience unlike any other. The travel van was comfortable and the provided water were much appreciated. Finally, we appreciated the dinner recommendation made by our guide following the tour. This experience was well worth the time and money.
Response: DC's monuments lit up at night are definitely magical. We'll let Cassie and Kareem know how much you enjoyed their Small Group Mall night tour. Many thanks for the 5 star review!

Heidi McQuade: Ron and Edrick were fantastic! There is no way we would have seen as much as we did in the little time we were here, and we are very appreciative of their knowledge. I would highly recommend See DC Today to anyone sightseeing, especially for first timers. Note: there is still quite a bit of walking and being on your feet because you leave the van at every stop.
Response: Thanks so much for your 5 Star review - we'll let the team know! We appreciate your taking the time to share your insights with our other guests especially during the busy summer season. Safe travels!

Shari N: Great tour! The small group format made for a fun, personal experience. Steve was a fun and knowledgeable tour guide and Edrick got us around town safely with a great sense of humor. I highly recommend this tour.
Response: We thank you for your 5 Star review. We'll let Steve and Edrick know. We are always tweaking our small group format for both our day and night tour. Come back and see us again soon!

J D: The hop on hop off night tour was amazing! Dustin was knowledgeable and was funny too! No way we would have seen all these sights on our own. Would highly recommend!
Response: Thanks so much for this review- We'll let Dustin know you enjoyed both his his commentary AND how he fit in all the sites in just 3 hours.

John Maty: Though the longest day of year; party of 6 totally enjoyed tour. Picked this company based on STOPs at best Monuments vs others that do driveby. Prompt pickup. Our driver Dustin had a wealth of information not only of the various Monuments but other Washingtonian tidbits.
Response: We thank you for your great review of Dustin's tour - and, we agree, the longest day of the year can be a challenge in DC heat but happy to hear that Dustin kept your group moving through the Mall monuments! We appreciate your 5 Star review and we'll let Dustin know.

Ki Anna: The Best tour out there. Larry was an awesome driver as he navigated thru DC .. and Steve was the most knowledgeable and professional tour guide ever! Will definitely do again.
Response: We'll let Larry and Steve know you enjoyed their teamwork! Thanks for the 5 Star review. Safe travels!

Nick Myers: Amazing tour for anyone who wants a personal and fun look at the monuments of DC. Our driver Steve was professional all around and got us across the city safely, and our guide, Kory, was really fun and obviously passionate about the area’s history. I was not looking for a deeply sanitized tour with guides who sound like they’re reading off of plaques at the monuments, and fortunately that’s not what I got. I recommend this bus tour for those who like to ask deeper questions about the Capitol’s history and get immediate answers, those who want something beyond the typical tourist experience, and those who want to be truly guided through DC and its intricacies rather than simply taken to photo-ops. Excellent experience all around!
Response: Nick, Thank you for taking the time to leave such an awesome review!!! Glad to hear that you not only enjoyed your tour but the whole experience. Thanks again. Safe Travels!

Signature Tours Of DC: what do users think?


Lissa H: Tyrone and Hunter were great tour guides, very friendly and helpful. Tyrone was knowledgeable and interjected a lot of humor into the tour. We had plenty of time to get off the bus and take pictures of the different memorial sights. The water that was available when we got back on the bus was very welcome. I highly recommend taking this trip, it was enjoyable and we learned a lot. Very much worth the cost.

Debbie DelValle: First night in DC, decided to try a monuments tour under the stars. Signature Tours offered hotel pick up and drop off which was an added bonus. Thanks to the very knowledgeable and personable Sally and our excellent driver Chris, the 3 hour tour was time very well spent. I would highly recommend this tour.

Andrew Harmon (Werd69): This tour was on point. We met the bus at 800 Pennsylvania Ave NW no problem. We were loaded on a big tour bus. Our tour guide name was Charles. He was fantastic. He knew so much, I thought he was a retired teacher. We got to see quite a few monuments. When they say 3 hours they mean 3 hours. We got our monies worth and then some. Definitely do this tour if possible.

CATHERINE RALEIGH: All I have to say is we had the BEST tour guide. He was so knowledgeable and super friendly, his name was Tyrone and I will admit he was kind of handsome too☺️ loved the sights and took a MILLION pictures. We went for the night tour- we couldn't see Arlington Cemetery because it was quite dark and raining but we still circled around and went to the Iwo Jima monument and that was neat to see especially after all the lights were on.

Emily Ferguson: We did the DC Under the Stars and it was incredible. Sally, our guide, was funny and engaging, and included such interesting info about DC and had a clear speaking voice. Chris, our driver, was also great. Would highly recommend this tour-and during the Spring, everything is simply stunning! Perfect combination of photo ops, history, humor, as well as moments to reflect and remember some of our nation’s most sobering events. The only downside to the tour was that the man loading us onto the bus was terribly rude and gruff for some reason. Also, there is no hotel pickup so plan to get transportation to the National Archives and make sure to arrive early.

Melissa Coulter: Absolutely the BEST DC tour! Fun and so knowledgeable! The kind of tour that you always hope you book! I highly recommend MR.MAP!

Melanie Williamson: My grandson and I had a wonderful tour of DC from Signature Tours. The guide, Dave, pointed out almost every downtown building, history and fun facts. Arriving at the momuments via the bus was perfect! Chris, the driver, safely took us from one location to another. Our 6-hour tour allowed us to see and experience much more than we could have if we had walked.

jen zappulla: I did the all day tour and Vernon and Chris were amazing! Vernon was so knowledgeable about the monuments and had side stories that added to the richness of what we were seeing. Chris maneuvered that bus like a boss, finding alternate routes due to closures and construction. I would highly recommend!!

Michael Olson: Driver and tour guide Tyrone were awesome! Docked a few stars because company is advertising a service on TripAdvisor that they aren’t providing, pick-up at hotel. We confirmed that our hotel was included on the list on the website so that was correct. The ticket we printed off for our tour listed hotel pickup on it. When I called to confirm this prior to the tour I was told we had to find our own way to the tour departure point. This required a change in our plan, expense, and travel that was not anticipated given what we purchased. You either are or you aren’t doing it because of Covid. This makes no sense to me as we are all sitting in a packed bus for 3 hours without mask requirement so what difference does a pickup make? Feels like an excuse to not do the work to fulfill what is advertised and paid for. The other star dock was for poorly maintained brakes on the bus. Couldn’t hear the tour guide many times because of the high pitched screeching of brakes every few minutes.

N C.: I'll start with saying that the tour itself is not that bad. DC is the same DC day or night. However, your tour guide can make any tour a good one or a dreadful one. Our tour guide was the equivalent of a lounge singer on the Love Boat, but just without the singing. He went on and on and on about pointless stuff. We didn't leave the first stop until 15 min after we should've left because he was babbling to stall for the late comers. It felt like the tour was moving in slow motion. By the 3rd stop, we got off the bus and went home. I've done A LOT of tours around the world and I have only left 2. This was one of them. Cannot recommend. 👎🏽

Quynh Tran: Mike G. (From Boston) was the best tour guide I’ve ever had. He was very knowledgeable and knew everything. I he was like a human google of Washington DC (or history in general)! It was a little chilly but it was a great start to DC and knowing the general areas before the rest of your trip. Our guide was very accommodating and left no man behind. Highly recommend!
Response: Quynh We are thrilled to hear how much you enjoyed your day with Old Town Trolley Tours Washington DC. Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us.

Connor Roberts: An excellent tour of the most important areas of DC for a fair price. The trolley ride was comfortable and the staff at the store and the tour guide were friendly and very knowledgeable. The tour we took was about 2 hours long including a half hour break at the Lincoln Memorial. If you're in DC I highly recommend checking this out, it's definitely worth it.

She handled other driver's rudeness with grace and integrity. It truly takes a talent to be able to drive through busy city streets, conduct an informative tour and keep everyone safe. Would do this tour again and recommend to all!
Response: Miranda Thank you for making us part of your vacation. We really appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback about Old Town Trolley Tours Washington DC and being so open with us.

M Lopez: Visiting DC and decided to take a tour to get to see all the sights without all the walking, $45 per adult for a 90 minute tour which included a 30 minute stop at the lincoln memorial, yay! Our guide was very knowledgeable and funny, I unfortunately can't remember his name 😕. Highly recommend Old Town Trolley Tours, I have used them in other cities and they never disappoint The only down side is that they discontinued the hop on hop off service in DC, hopefully they'll start it again in the future, but the 30+ stop was great.
Response: M It’s always great for our team to hear from our guests. Thank you for taking the time to provide us with a review of your experience on Old Town Trolley Tours Washington DC. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Laura Oliver: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, ValueMoonlight trolley tour is fabulous!

Response: Susie We appreciate your positive feedback about your experience on Old Town Trolley Tours Washington DC. We take pride in serving our customers and hope to see you again at Old Town Trolley Tours Washington DCsoon!

Slem: We ran up as a night time tour was starting. We didn't have advanced tickets because we weren't sure if we'd make it in time. They let us buy tickets and hop on a bus very quickly. Our tour guide, Honest Abe, was great. Loved his commentary and Playlist.
Response: Slem Love hearing from our guests like you! Thank you for the review of Old Town Trolley Tours Washington DC! We are glad you had a fun time.

Talina McKinley: My experience with this trolley tour was not good...I booked online, when I got to the welcome center the check in attendant was not friendly, he looked high and felt like I bothered him...it was not a hop on/hop off...I paid for Arlington Cemetery and had to find my own way there...the 90 minutes ride felt like an hour of seeing nothing, drove past everything so fast you could barely get a pic...I had to go to the White House on my own... couldn't see the Martin Luther King Monument...spent 30 minutes at Lincoln Memorial
Response: We are sorry you were disappointed in our tour. We offer a satisfaction guarantee located on the customer service page of our website.

Donna Hensley: I wish there were 5 more stars I could give Old Town Trolley! The personalized narration by knowledgeable, friendly drivers are always the rule.

Federal City Private Tours: what do users think?


John Anderson: Larry led our group of 4 family members on an amazing tour of Arlington National Cemetery and Ford's Theatre. Our focus was primarily on Lincoln and Larry did not disappoint. The depth of knowledge and passion for the history was simply incredible. It's encouraging that he leads a number of student groups on these tours because after a session with Larry it's not possible to leave without a thirst for more and a recognition for how much we're missing in life without a deeper understanding of our history. Many thanks Larry.
Response: Thank you for the kind remarks! It was a distinct pleasure sharing our history with you and thoroughly enjoyed all the stimulating conversation! Please tell your friends about us!

John Kober: Federal City Tours, along with our tour guide Larry Clark, provided an entertaining and educational twilight tour to launch our 5-day family reunion in Washington, D.C. Larry customized the tour to meet our wishes of what to see and where to stop. The private vehicle was excellent for our 12 family members and the tour was a real highlight for our time in DC. I highly recommend Federal City for its excellent service, and Larry Clark is the perfect guide to make you happy to be in his care.
Response: We are so pleased to have played a role in your family’s reunion - it was a great evening! Thank you for the ringing endorsement!

Michelle Eyster: I had a great time it was really fun, and Larry was the best tour guide! That statement came from one of the high school girls on my recent student tour. Many of the boys loved Larry also and have not stopped talking about him since we left. He is extremely knowledgeable and if you trust him, he will get you to the most things in the most efficient way!
Response: Wow - we always appreciate kind words from the teachers & parents, but when the students say those things? That just blows us away! Thank you & please thank the students, too - our jobs are so much easier with good, smart kids! And… we walk! 😆

Daniel Kempf: We have had Larry as a guide for the past two years and he is amazing. He is so knowledgeable and does a great job! He is fantastic with students and is so easy to work with. He helps put together a good plan and knows how to adjust if needed.
Response: So very kind - and thanks for bringing me such good & smart students! See you next year!

Lisa Dychus: Larry is a phenomenal tour guide! He was able to instantly connect with our 8th grade students on our annual DC trip and made history come alive for them. Larry has a fun personality and would be excellent for a group with people of any age! He is engaging, well-researched, and very knowledgeable. As a gifted story teller, Larry goes above and beyond anything you'd read in a history textbook, sharing insights about our nation's history. When someone loves what they do, it is evident and Larry's passion for teaching and history is contagious. Larry is responsive to group needs and made sure we had an incredible trip. I cannot imagine touring DC without Larry - highly recommend!
Response: Wow - that is humbling! Thanks for bring such good & smart students!

Kathleen Nichols: We were struggling to find a good tour company. I emailed Larry at Federal City Tours and he responded immediately. We cannot over express how much we enjoyed the tour with Larry and our driver Grigor. Comfortable ride in a brand new Escalade. The thoroughness of Larry’s knowledge and the entertainment value offered by his many stories made the day go by so quickly. They customized the tour to make it exactly what we wanted! Highly recommend without reservation! Exceeded our Expectations!!
Response: We like to exceed our guests' expectations - every time! Thank you for the kind words!

Jennifer Breedlove: Absolutely love this tour guide! I take a group of military every four months and we always ensure we book through Federal City Private Tours. They’re extremely well spoken, have amazing information, and ensure the group is engaged. Would absolutely recommend to anyone!
Response: We always enjoy meeting new friends from all over the world & l’m constantly in awe of how much your groups know about American History - we love you right back! See you in the Fall!

Brad Brown: These guys did a great job with our 8th grade students. Larry and Paul are very knowledgeable about the city and its history. Both men were very engaging with our students. We cannot wait to schedule for next year.
Response: Hey Coach - Really appreciate the great review! We’ll be ready to schedule 2023 when you are!

Josh S: Larry was absolutely fantastic! We had a large group of international students and he made the tour fun and engaging for everyone. Easy to work with, absolutely go to Larry for your tour!
Response: So grateful for the kind words - your students were a lot of fun! Come back & see us anytime!

Jennifer Cochran: Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, QualityWe spent two full days with Larry on a recent trip to the DC area. He is the best tour guide I have ever had with knowledge and storytelling skills that are second to none! His impressions kept us in stitches. I highly recommend Larry to any private or large group that wants to have a first rate DC tour experience.Service: Group tours
Response: Thanks for the very kinds words - the pleasure was all ours!

Jill Willcox: We had the pleasure of meeting Bess, as our guide for DC National Mall and Memorials. It was not perfect weather, but we did not care as Bess was engaging, funny, and filled with exciting stories we would never have known if we did not take the tour. It's one thing to walk around by yourself, but you don't get all the backstories that make these tours fantastic. We went and saw the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, the Vietnam Memorial, the WW2 Memorial, the Korean Memorial, and the Martin Luther King Memorial. We loved the tour so much that we booked another for the American History tour with Bess. Thanks so much for having such fantastic individuals teaching us more than we could have learned by ourselves in beautiful Washington, DC.

Nathan Hartman: Ask for Donna for a private tour of the National Archives and Supreme Court. She is extraordinarily informed about the history and meaning of our nation’s treasures. She was phenomenal with the kids and brought the stories to life.

dianne chiogna: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, ValueRebecca was Amazing!! She was so engaging and knowledgeable it made our tour an adventure in history. Tour of the National Archives is a must and if at all possible request Rebecca!!!!

Akiva Leyton: Could not have had a better experience in DC. Our tour guide was courteous, knowledgeable, and very friendly. Can't recommend this tour group enough!

Reuben Kats: Great experience going through the historic landmarks. I will definitely use this company in the future!

Che' Farquar: Chris & Lorenzo were TOP NOTCH!!!! We absolutely loved our trip! Finishing up my photo-book from May 2019, made me realize I had not left a review. Well, now I have... If you are in D.C. & looking for someone with an abundance of knowledge & professionalism, Chris is your guy!! They were early to pick us up from the hotel, they brought us to get breakfast and then gave us knowledge I will never forget! He and Lorenzo were funny and easy to be around & they even took in our crazy jokes! It was truly the most memorable trip I have ever been on! I am currently looking at their website to book another tour with them with the rest of my family!

Jason Miller: I am so happy we booked a private day tour and thankful Christopher was our guide! He arrived promptly, took us to every placed and more. The food for breakfast and lunch was great. The pace was efficient but never rushed. Christopher was knowledgeable, professional and fun. There is no way we could have had a better experience touring DC! I went with my wife and two sons (10 & 12) and everyone was very happy. Thanks for a great day in DC!

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!!

KB Tours: what do users think?


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: 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!

Darlene Jefferson: Kenny is a Smart & Knowledgeable Guide of DC History. Tour Starts On Time! Yay! I've been on this tour twice & enjoy it very Much! Sites such as Franklin Douglas' home, MLK Memorial, sites around the City teaches everyone Our History in America! And the Final treat are tickets to the Beautiful African American Museum afterwards. Highly recommend this Experience!

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: 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: 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!

Verlean Martin: This tour was absolutely wonderful. Jamal was SO knowledgeable. We were provided with so much history....not just African American History, but he explained our significance in American History hitting on the smallest of details. This tour was well worth the money and it was a Blessing to have Jamal as our guide. Take advantage of this opportunity when you're here.

DA Howard: I highly recommend this this tour. We took the day tour which culminated with convenient entry to the Smithsonian African American Museum. Eat first and bring a snack to eat along on the tour bus ( cold bottled water is provided on the tour) because you need every minute to enjoy the museum. The tour was on a comfortable, air-conditioned mini bus. Kenny was very knowledgeable and we learned new things the entire time. We stopped at the Capitol, Lincoln memorial, Mlk memorial, Frederick Douglass house, African American Civil War memorial, and White House photo stop. Soon the Mary McCleod Bethune House will be added when it reopens (instead of the white house)- we're sorry we missed that treat. There will be a fair amount of walking at each stop and in the museum - bring comfortable shoes

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!!

Eve Byford-Peterson: The Carson, Lewis Rousseau Family reunion utilized KB Tours on June 22nd and were extremely pleased with our tour. Ms. Sandra, our tour guide, was the greatest and so knowledgeable. We found the whole trip to be an uplifting, educational and enjoyable experience. Recommend it highly.

Zohery Tours: what do users think?


Eliz V: Not really worth it. We couldn’t understand the accent of the tour guide. I think it’s better to go by ourselves and find the hidden gems of DC. It was too pricey for the trip.

Karl Kanbergs: The tour was adequate but not outstanding. They should have allowed about ten minutes more at the FDR/MLK Monuments, especially since the bus returned nearly one half hour earlier than scheduled. Also Mr. Zohery is sometimes hard to understand and he sometimes repeats himself. But, for a half day it is a good intro to DC and better than the hop on and off bus which is always crowded.

Gary Bagley: A waste of time and money! When we arrived, the big bus was full so wewent in a van with 2 other people and followed the big bus. Our river/narrator knew very little about U.S. history and government and spouted ridiculous statements such as Congress is composed of theSenate and House of Delegates, you cansee the Magna Carta in the National Rhives, Washington putJefferson in charge of Congress, FrancesPerkins served 12 years asSec.of Labor under Lincoln, etc. Aren’t D.C. tour guides vetted and licensed? It appears not with this company!

Mona: Informative tour in an air conditioned bus. We saw many places, but wish we had a little more time to explore the places we did stop at…was really touch and go type of experience but you do see a lot of buildings and the tour guy is definitely knowledgeable about DC.

David Wales: My tour was cancelled because there were not enough people for it, which I totally understand and appreciate. As I am writing this I am still awaiting a refund and it was over a month ago. Despite numerous emails and messages on Whatsapp I have not received it despite being told that it was going to be refunded. I look forward to a response and a refund ASAP.

YaYa Wilson: The Best Tour Ever... should you visit Washington, DC please schedule, very informative from a relaxed, people person type of tour guide... some could only wish to be as cool, calm, and collective in a world of today... just chill, schedule your tour and relax

Stephanie Brake: 5 stars for Paul making it the most fun I have ever had on a tour.

Sarah T: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, ValueVery informative, friendly tour guide! Dr Zohery is knowledgeable when it comes to the history of DC, the monuments, and landmarks. The tour bus was easy to find at the Hyatt hotel, clean, and comfortable. We will be touring with Dr Zohery when we come to DC again. 5 stars easily.

Stephen Day: Joe gave a good, liesurely paced drive to six destinations: the mall in front of the capital (and General Grant's monument), the Jefferson Memorial, the FDR Memorial, the MLK, Jr. Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial (which included the Korean and Vietnam Memorials), and the white house. Along the drive, he gave us some trivia and historic information and pointed out the main buildings along the route. At each stop, we had plenty of time to walk around in our own to explore the memorial. The tour started at 7:30 pm and ended around 10:30. The tour was enjoyed by the whole family (including the 12 and 14 year olds) and was a great way to get to know the layout of the main sightseeing parts of the town before the rest of our stay!

Steven Mortensen: I was looking for a stress free way to get around the Washington DC mall area without having to do a lot of walking. Zohery Tours has a very comfortable, air conditioned van. The driver was very knowledgeable regarding the areas monuments and history. The van was stopped for enough time to get out, stretch our legs, and take a few photos. It worked out perfectly for our needs.
Response: Thank You

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 ..

Debbie Hoffman: We enjoyed our Tour to a point. Guy was knowledgeable and funny in a corny way. He kept us engaged and I actually learned a few things! There is one suggestion however. I personally believe he should be unbiased when speaking about our President. He made several disparaging comments such as 'I don't call him President Trump, I call him 45'. Then he called him a clown. While I didn't vote for President Trump, he is still our President. I did speak with Guy about how we all felt so hopefully he'll understand a tour is not a platform for his political views. My entire party of 5 would have enjoyed it much better and probably tipped him more. In summary, if Guy can be more politically unbiased, I would recommend this tour highly. If not, find another tour.
Response: Sorry to hear about your experience with Bobby- He is just one of our many tour guide. Our company policy is totally clear on such issues. We invite you for a free tour on us at anytime in the future Just ask to speak to JOE. Thank you.

John Rumble: Bus was comfortable and city pretty. However the driver definitely did not like his job. He spoke unclear and basically dumped you out and sat in the bus saying be back in either 15, 20 or 30 min depending. Spend more $ and take a tour with a guide that does something!
Response: Please realize that one tour guide do not define the total characteristic of a company. As an operator we put out the best vehicle to create the best possible experience for our guest - We want to hear more from you to help us fix this Please call in Thank you.

Alex Padilla: Very nice man on the tour. Save your money and Uber it to Mount Vernon. If you really want an in depth tour Mt. Vernon offers a 90 minute in depth tour. Basically, Loba drives you there and back and pays the admission. Thank you.

Daniel McDowell: We went on the Night Tour and it was amazing. Our tour guide was Leroy and he was very interesting and funny. I highly recommend this tour and try to get Leroy, he won’t let you down.

Gina Bolt: Bobby was my guide he was wonderful.

tanimowo alli: Best tour of DC for the price.

Rachel O'neill: Highly recommend!

Maxwell M.: Absolutely great experience. Super friendly guy, very knowledgeable. Even though everything was closed for the covid lockdown, he took my friend and I on a 3 hour tour of the monuments, outdoor attractions, and government buildings of interest. HIGHLY recommend to anyone visiting the area. This guy ROCKS!

Jerry Harrell: This was the most fun! We took the Mt. Vernon Old Towne Alexandria tour. Johannes is extremely knowlegable and made our tour wonderful. Definitely sign up for this service if you want to have an enjoyable trip.

Gregory Thomas: A lot to see in 2 days!! We would not have been able to schedule all of this on our own. In Arlington, make sure to look at the tram timing if you want to see the changing of the guard. In the summer it is every 30 minutes, but other times of the year only at the top of the hour.

Donald Strobel: Driver was knowledgeable, but his accent was so strong it was hard to understand him. Lots of word were mispronounced and difficult to follow. Very outspoken on his political views.

Noushin Zandi: We had the best tour guid ever, so intelligent, so informative and so nice, I highly recommend this tour, we loved it and enjoyed it, thanks Yohanis !
