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.

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!

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.

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!

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!

See DC Today: what do users think?


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. 👎🏽

DC Insider Tours: what do users think?


Andrew Studenic: Bo did an Incredible job doing a bike tour of our first time in DC! He was knowledgeable and enthusiastic and made it fun. He was reliable and worth every dollar!!!! If I could give 10 stars I would! This is THE tour to take in DC

Robert Faires: Our family just spent 3 days in D.C. with Bo guiding us around. I would have to say it was a great experience, Bo is very knowledgeable and adds a lot to the experience. "Bo knows D.C." You can tell Bo has a passion for the history of D.C. and has put a lot of work into learning facts that are not obvious and his pointing out these facts during the tour really helped us takeaway more from the experience than we would have otherwise. Bo was very easy to work with and accommodating to our family's needs and desires. I would highly recommend DC Insider Tours.

Det Ansinn: Bo has amazing historical knowledge of DC and is really entertaining. They use electric bicycles made by Pedego — well maintained, zippy, and the brakes give you confidence. Added bonus? on a hot DC summer day, the breeze on an electric bike keeps you cool.

Pakeezha: The night tour on the electrical bikes was a blast!!! The tour guide was very clear with instructions and never a dull moment! The views were the best. I’ve lived here all my life and learned and saw things I had never before! The best part were the bikes! Anyone can do it! And hardly any man power needed. Wrap up though because it can get chilly when you are going 30 mph!!!

Christian Gerbick: Wife and I did an electric bike tour with Bo and it was AWESOME. Whether you're a history buff or not, Bo will make your ride incredible. I've been to to DC a number of times, and Bo's electric bike tour was by far the most memorable activity I've undertaking in DC. He has all sorts of fun and interesting stories about DC. Doing the tour at night avoids all sorts of traffic and you can get-up speed on the bike. I cannot recommend this adventure enough.

Tisha Ooppapan: A “Wheelie” Extraordinary Tour The DC After Hours Electric Bike Tour with Bo and Becca is a MUST GO! The electric bikes are a quick, safe, and fun way to visit all the attractive sites as well as the hidden gems of DC. I have loved adventuring DC for the past 7 years, yet Bo and Becca were still able to share a ton of new fun facts and an admirable amount of knowledge with me. If you need an exhilarating and educational trip, book with DC Insider Tours.

Troy Rippere: We did the DC After Hours electric bike tour and this was by far the absolutely best way to see all of the major sites at night. In this 2 hour tour, we were able to visit the White House, Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, MLK Memorial, the Jefferson Memorial, the Supreme Court, and the Capitol with enough time at each spot for pictures. The electric bikes were also a blast to ride (up to 20-25 mph) and are actually fully electric, instead of just pedal-assist like other tours. On our tour, there were just 6 guests plus the tour guide. The small group was intimate and made it really easy to hear everything the tour guide said. Our particular guide was Matt and he was super friendly and seemed really knowledgeable about the different sites. All in all I had a great time and look forward to trying their other tours on subsequent trips to DC.

Camer Bean: Best experience in DC. My husband and I had a great time riding the bikes all over DC with a wonderfully energetic tour guide. Bo's excitement will keep you energized all day all wanting to hear more about each building's history. Definitely a must see in the DC area!!!

Gavin Sethi: Bo and Becca are the two most knowledgeable people of DC history I've met! I've lived in Washington DC area most of my life but haven't discovered DC like the way these two have shown me. I've taken a "electric bicycle," tour of theirs...not only did I have a blast but was truly another...unique way to get around DC while learning the history of our nations capital! Bo and Becca are simply two very cool/knowledgeable guides with a unique and creative business! Highly recommend them to anyone that comes into town! Gavin

Derrick D: I have done a tour with DC Insider Tours before, but this was the first time doing it with the electric bikes. I highly suggest if you're in DC and want to see the sights... this is the way to go. Bo and Becca are both extremely knowledgeable. Who knew learning history could be so fun!? I'm definitely doing it again when I come back! Also, night time was definitely the best time to go in the summer. Less crowded and not so hot. I went on July 29th.

Tiber Creek Private Tours: what do users think?


Rita Padden: Fantastic Tour! We've been to DC previously but this was our first time taking a private tour. Chris was very helpful in providing information before the tour. It was great to have both a driver and a guide so that it was easy to get dropped off and picked up at each site especially since DC traffic can be very challenging. The Sprinter was perfect for our group of 7 adults. Our driver, Joseph, brought us close to each site and was patient with our embarking and disembarking. Our guide, Richard, was AMAZING! Having worked in DC, Richard's background and experience was a tremendous asset in providing us with comprehensive information about the city and its rich history. Richard's thorough discussion of the White House and many of the other monuments was outstanding. At each major site Richard provided historical context, tremendous detail, and good historical anecdotes. It was most enjoyable to hear Richard's enthusiasm in conveying his love for the city. Richard's tremendous respect and love for our country, its government, our system of democracy, and various events in our nation's history was contagious. We listened carefully as he brought history to life. I highly recommend Tiber Creek and Richard, an amazingly knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide.

Roger Pettingell: We had a fantastic tour with Richard. My boys 15 and 17 and their 15 year old friend and I signed up for a 4-hour private tour. Richard kept the tour fast-paced, humorous, educational and FUN. Our boys were skeptical at first, having come to Washington to see a hockey game. My younger son said the highlight of his trip to Washington was Arlington Cemetery which Richard and driver Gabrielle took us to. I highly recommend Tiber Creek Tours, and was very appreciative of their ability to create such a special tour for us with very little notice.

Josh Youngblood: A++ all the way. Christopher was wonderful and planned our itinerary. Jane was out tour guide and it was a history lesson and tour. She was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. I cannot imagine visiting DC without doing a tour like this. Joseph was our driver and he was wonderful as well. You really could not ask for a better group of people. I look forward to booking another tour when we return to DC. I booked this trip was a Christmas gift for my father who had never been to DC. He said it was the trip of a lifetime and loved the tour.

Rabdem Leon: We stayed in Washington DC four days and toured two days with Tiber Creek Private Tours. Our guide Jana was the best. She provided more information and history than we were able to retain. 😂😂😂. It is amazing to have someone so knowledgeable right next to you explaining and providing historical background as you are seeing the memorials, exhibits, or museums. They picked us up at the hotel and drive us around to the selected tours. The driver would drop us off at the memorials and our guide will get off with us. Then the driver would wait for us to pick us up and take us to the next place. They had water and candy for us to take at all times. Our guide would provide us with details that makes the tour a lot more interesting and fun. Christopher was able to make reservation to the best restaurants in the DC area. They also were able to get us tickets to go to the Library of Congress. I would highly recommend everyone to book tours with them. The experience was one that I am sure my girls will never forget. I am thankful for their time and dedication to make sure we have a great experience. Thank you.

Dave Ring: I highly recommend using Tiber Creek Tours. We are a family of four and we wanted something that was flexible and classy. That’s exactly what we got. It makes a huge difference to have both a driver and a tour guide — we got to see so much in such a short period of time. We did one 4-hour tour one day and another 4-hour tour the next day. Everything went smoothly. The tour guide Jane knew her stuff. The owner Chris is very responsive and tailored the tour to our needs. He even has great restaurant recommendations ! Great time, highly recommend them.

Leanne Neely: I took my 94 year old mom on this private tour. She can walk but I rented a portable wheelchair. She was able to do the tour without any issues. Joseph helped me get the chair in and out. He was the driver and was very accommodating. Jana and her Knowledge of everything plus her stories was excellent. She is a delight! I will definitely book with them the next time I bring a newcomer to DC. Highly recommend this private tour. Bottled water was plentiful also.
Response: Hi Leanne, thank you for writing about your experience with us. You and your mother were a delight to have on tour. We look forward to seeing you again!

Lynne Shepard: My husband and I spent a week in Washington, DC. We are both super busy with our jobs and didn’t have a whole lot of time for making plans. I contacted Chris with Tiber Creek Private Tours. He arranged three tours for us. The first was a three hour tour of DC at night. Our driver was Amaury and he navigated his way around DC like a pro! He was kind and so polite. A real asset to Tiber Creek. Our personal tour guide was Felix. As an architect, he was able to point out so many interesting details on the buildings and monuments that we would have otherwise missed. But more than that, we felt like we were riding around town with a friend. He really did a great job of starting our week out (and one year wedding anniversary) on a good note. Thanks Felix! A few days later we had the pleasure of meeting Jane, our tour guide for Arlington and Mt Vernon. I learned so much about our history that I had never known. She amazed me with her ability to find particular graves at Arlington that we had an interest in! That place was huge! But she knew it well. She was thoughtful and kind and it was a pleasure to spend two days with her!! Our driver those two days was Joseph. He, too, was a pleasure and we felt completely safe with him as he navigated DC. I can’t stop without commending Chris on all of the help he gave us. He shared ideas for our “on our own days” and helped me keep focused so that we actually saw every single museum and monument on our bucket list. He called daily to check on us. I would recommend Timber Creek Private tours to anyone visiting Washington, DC. I couldn’t have been more pleased with their service!!

Leo CW: Matt was a brilliant guide who knew an exceptional amount about everything from the universities and the key landmarks, all the way to the best place to get a takeaway lunch. Chris was helpful and flexible in arranging the tour with us and worked around our other plans and timetable seamlessly. The driver Joseph also had a great knowledge of the whole city and surrounding areas, allowing us to add different locations on the fly. Would highly recommend!
Response: Hi Leo, Thank you very much for taking the time to write about your tour with us. Matt and Joseph really enjoyed showing the city and Georgetown University to the two of you. All the best, Christopher

Frisky Warfare: Chris and the staff of Tiber Creek are amazing. I don’t even know what to say besides the experience, service, and attention to detail of all their staff is second to none. Have never been treated better. We scheduled last minute, had numerous demands upon their schedule and were still given the best service anyone could imagine. They responded to emails quickly, followed up with phone calls, and made sure we enjoyed ourselves the entire time. Our kids were able to see and do things that would have been impossible to do without a proper guide and so much was accomplished in such a short amount of time. I understand that reviews are a dime a dozen, but I cant thank everyone enough for the time we had in DC.

William Reynolds: First let me say that I rarely write a review. So when I do it is usually due to something that is out of the ordinary. This is my second time using Tiber Creek in DC. Both times Chris and his team have exceeded my expectations. My most recent trip (March 2022) Chris arranged for Betsy to be our guide and Gonzolo our driver. They were both wonderful. Betsy was able to get us in to see the amazing Anderson House before it was open to the public. She was able to tie in historical information from Mount Vernon and the National Cathedral as well as we viewed this stunning home. The wealth of knowledge she possessed was fantastic. Gonzolo was also friendly and great. His SUV was clean, had plenty of chargers, water bottles, mints and he also had good insights to point out as we drove around. I enjoyed the conversations with him about DC, the sites, as well as about life and family. Also the whole team was super easy to work with, friendly, accommodating and flexible. They worked to set up last moment a tour, and then let me cancel it shortly thereafter due to the weather being a little to chilly for our personal tastes. So I would highly recommend Chris and his team at Tiber Creek to anyone. I will use them again on my next trip!!

Capitol Express Tours, Washington DC Golf Cart Tours: what do users think?


Mike Maynes: This is a superb tour, which you should book immediately. Our guide Will was a wealth of information as he guided us around many, many monuments. He possesses an unbelievable amount of relevant DC knowledge and had a great attitude! We took breaks to walk the major monuments and take photos. This tour is the best value for your money in DC. Rain was in the forecast and they provided us with simple ponchos. Shortly after our tour started the downpour began and people were asking us where to buy ponchos. We had a blast in the rain.
Response: Thanks Mike. The weather is no match against positive attitude and simple preparation. Also, you can re-use the poncho for the next rainmergency. Thanks again!

Trevor Carey: This is a great way to see the sites of DC. The cost was good, the experience will live with us forever. John and Adam were amazing. They took us at short notice after we had another tour cancel, and are so knowledgeable about the place. If you only have time for one tour, this is it.
Response: Thanks Trevor, It's a delight to have your high appraisal, and Thank You for choosing the Capitol Express.

Deborah Cannon: Chris was the best tour guide ever! Not only was he extremely knowledgeable about American history but he was able to teach two Daughters of the American Revolution a few things that even we didn’t know! As a plus, he supplied us with the most amazing dinner recommendation for the evening including the most awesome dessert!
Response: Hi Deborah, You're not the only one giving high praise to Chris. It's delightful to know we have exceptionally qualified guides. Thank you for the generous review, we are happy to serve you and your acquaintances anytime you are in DC. Thanks again for choosing the Capitol Express.

Christy Reynosa: My we family went to DC on June 29, planning on doing the Trolley tour, but couldn't find exactly where to go for it, my husband saw these extended golf carts and asked about them. They were parked outside The Washington Hotel, it was quick and easy to do the online reservation and pay online. It's a 2 hour tour, stopping for a little bit at which ever tour stop so you can get out and take pictures and look around. AND is better because it's just your group and no other people (we had 5 people), so we didn't have to wait for others or hear their chit chats lol. Our tour guide Teddy was awesome, told about buildings along the way and drove safe! At the end of the tour he dropped us off wherever we wanted. Excellent tour, service and guide!! Would do this tour again! Thanks Teddy!
Response: Thanks Christy, You could not have stated it any better, and you're right, the Capitol Express is the "Best Way to See DC"

Richard McCulloch: We had an awesome experience seeing all the major DC sites in a super short amount of time! Adam was an amazing tour guide!
Response: Thank You, Richard, for choosing the Capitol Express. We couldn't sum it up any better than you. 2 hrs, ba-da-bing....done!

Julie Rinker: This was an outstanding experience! Adam, the tour guide, shared his in-depth knowledge of the city and was very personable! He made sure we were safe throughout the entire evening tour, and even let our mixed family group decide on which monuments were most interesting for our stops. I took the tour with my mom, and Adam was able to accommodate her walker and limited mobility, directing us to elevators when necessary. I lived in DC one summer and never learned all that Adam had to share. Even though my mom and I have had several trips to DC before tonight, this was one night we won’t soon forget!
Response: Hi Julie, It's a pleasure to know that you had a great experience. It is our primary goal to turn customers into fans. Please, tell the others. Thanks again.

Maxine Frink: Great service!! Owen was a great tour instructor we seen so many sites in our two hour tour. Will do it again worth every dollar.
Response: Hi Maxine, It is a pleasure to know you enjoyed the tour. Thank you for your kind appraisal of Owen, as well. We hope to serve you in the future. Thanks again.

Jill Maher: We got so lucky! We saw Capitol Express Tours drive by while we were eating dinner at Ebbitt's, I Googled the name and reserved our private night tour that same evening. Adam was fantastic! He took us to all the monuments, shared stories & history, took our family photos, and even dropped us back at our hotel that evening. We loved every minute! Highly recommended!
Response: Hi Jill, Thank you for choosing the Capitol Express. We appreciate your business and your positive feedback. We look forward to serving your needs whenever you are in Washington DC.

Jessica Coello: Adam was amazing! We scheduled a night tour ahead of time online and the weather changed drastically days before. Adam came prepared with blankets, hats and hot water bottles! We stayed warm(ish) and were still able to get out to each of the Monuments 😀 John reached out to us prior to our tour and suggested checking out the Willard hotel, so happy they shared this tip. The hotel lobby is beautiful and so full of history! Capitol express tours is a must for your DC tour!!
Response: Thank you, Jessica, for choosing the Capitol Express, "The best way to see DC ". It is our pleasure to provide guests with an experience to remember.

Andrew Lee: Took a private tour with Chris on Friday July 1st with my family of 7 (which included two toddlers). Such an incredible way to see DC (especially if you’re only there for a few days like we were). Chris was our guide and he was so informative and sweet with our children. Having a private tour with the ability to get off the cart to take photos and take in so many sights in DC was the highlight of our trip. I recommend doing it early on in your stay so you can orient yourself to all of DC. Perfect for short attention span of kids
Response: Hi Andrew, We love families, and creating memories that will last a lifetime. Bring the kids every few years. Thanks again.

Private Tours of Washington, inc.: what do users think?


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!

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

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!

Discover DC Pedicab Tours: what do users think?


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!

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!

I recommend this tour and will use them again when I visit again.

Yaritza Pena: The night tour was excellent and stopped at most of the sights we wanted to see. Since it was our first time in the area, going on this tour allowed us to plan the rest of our trip. Our tour guide Steve and driver were awesome! Very knowledgeable!

Steve Miscavish: Our evening tour with Robert was the highlight of a great trip to DC with our little ones. We booked a (same day) tour to see the monuments at night. The tour far exceeded our expectations and ended up being our favorite part of the entire trip. Our kids had so much fun that they wanted to book another tour with Robert, but we ran out of time. We really enjoyed hearing the stories and the history behind the monuments and landmarks that we saw. Robert was super friendly, knowledgeable and patient, even when our kids were asking silly questions. We had a lot of fun and would highly recommend the tour with Robert.
Response: Thank you for your wonderful review, Steve. Questions from kids, whether silly or serious, always make for a fun tour. I’m so pleased you all enjoyed so much.

Joe Leahy: Robert set up a great tour for our family and Don and Pat - our guides on bikes shared their expertise as former US History teachers from the area! This was the best way to start our week in DC. Both were informative, caring and helpful. We would do again!
Response: Thank you for your wonderful review, Joe. The pleasure was all ours.

Ashley Pedersen: We thoroughly enjoyed our experience with Nonpartisan Pedicabs in early April 2022. Robert and Bob took us on a tour of the monuments and memorials of the National Mall on one day, and then Pennsylvania Avenue and Capitol Hill the next day. They were extremely knowledgeable, accommodating, courteous, and fun! Robert knew just where to capture some beautiful family photos and both had significant insight into the area. It was wonderful for my children and my older parents to be able to get off their feet and just enjoy the surroundings. We saw much more than we would have been able to had we done it any other way. Robert was also very accommodating with the weather forecast, being willing to reschedule for more optimal weather. He was very willing to answer any questions I had about DC and gave advice on what to see and how to get there. In my opinion Nonpartisan Pedicabs is the ultimate way to tour DC, and we were very happy to be able to enjoy their tours. Thank you Robert and Bob!
Response: Thank you for a wonderful review, Ashley. Bob and I both enjoyed spending time on tour with your family. I am a pleased that everyone enjoyed so much.

ketan vinod: My parents have difficulty walking long distances. Nonpartisan Pedicab was the perfect service to use specially around D.C. as you can't drive to those monuments. Robert was very and prompt to arrange pedicab for my parents. Robert shared detailed information on where to meet, park, guide details etc. Our guide Don was amazing, knowledgeable, friendly and punctual. My parents had a blast for 2 hours. I would say it was little steep from price point of view but it was worth it as we went there on Saturday evening around while Cherry blossom 🌸.
Response: Thank you, Ketan, for your wonderful review. I’m so glad that your parents were here just in time to see the Cherry blossoms in full bloom.

Kristi Frush: Customized and personalized exactly to your wishes in touring the main sights of Washington, DC! Don't hesitant to book!! Worth the cost... absolutely!!!! Robert was an excellent tour guide for my daughter, son-in- law and granddaughter. They were visiting from SC, so this was the perfect gift to them. Robert was so accommodating along with being the perfect guide with a wealth of information. My husband and I look forward to booking a tour for ourselves. Thank you, Robert!!!
Response: Thank you, Kristi, for your wonderful review. I had a great time on tour with your family. I’m so pleased everyone enjoyed so much.

Reginald Julius: May 5, 2022, Nonpartisan Pedicab Tour Prior to visiting Washington DC, I scheduled a Nonpartisan Pedicab tour. Our tour started from our Hotel, The District by Hilton. We had no plan of where we wanted to start. We had a discussion of which memorials we wanted to see. Robert our tour guide kept our desires in mind and our tour was underway. My wife and I quickly realized Robert is extremely knowledgeable of not only the monuments but also the history of Washington itself. We were able to stop and walk about each Memorial visited. Robert gave us a detailed narration concerning what we were about to visit. Our tour traveled the length of the National Mall ending at the White House. I highly recommend this tour as it proved to be informative by a very gifted guide. Thank You Robert for a fantastic day!! Our meal at The Old Ebbitt Grill was delicious.
Response: Thank you, Reggie, for a wonderful review. It was truly my pleasure to conduct your tour of Washington DC. I’m so pleased you and your wife enjoyed.

Anupurba Roy: I used this service for a tour of the Tidal Basin with my 69 year old arthritic mother who struggles to walk long distances. Our guide Reed was not only very knowledgeable about DC and the monuments on the National Mall, but he was extremely considerate about helping my mother in and out of the cab and helping us take photos. Going around by pedicab is the perfect way to see the monuments relatively up close for people with accessibility issues. It is of course expensive, but in my opinion worth it for your loved ones with mobility issues. Highly recommend.
Response: Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Anupurba. It’s always our goal to provide accessibility to all the memorials in the nation’s capital. I’m so pleased that you all enjoyed the tour.

Mandy Bush: Those with limited mobility can rejoice! Robert has got your back. He will drive you right up to thr monuments and can even bungee cord your chair or crutches to his cab! And he knows all the things about DC. It's incredible. Super nice guy. Genuinely cares about his clients and does what he can to make the visit more memorable. He even spent a few minutes trying to understand why my mobility is limited and how he can help next time! It's not cheap but it's worth it. Go at sunset if you can. ♡
Response: Thank you for your wonderful review, Mandy. I had a great time on tour with you and your kids.

Carolyn Rathburn: Celebrating mother’s 94th birthday during peak cherry blossom week. This was the perfect gift for parents to enjoy DC without the stress of crowds and mobility issues. Robert met us in a convenient location for drop off and pick up and where we could park. He provided a personal tour of monuments and tidal basin. They loved it! Thank you.
Response: Thank you, Carolyn, for a wonderful review. It was my pleasure to tour the monuments with your parents. I’m so pleased the enjoyed the tour so much.

Kelsey Castro: This tour was the highlight of our trip to DC! Robert helped us set up the tour the night before and recommended a central/easy location to park downtown. We loved learning about the history of the area.This was a great way to see the national mall/monuments with our dog on a hot day.
Response: Thank you very much for your wonderful review, Kelsey. I had a great time on tour with you all today.

Gray Line: what do users think?


curtis bergeron: What didn't we get to see... in two days on gray lines D.C. In a day and Virginia in a day tours I feel like my head is spinning! We saw more than we came for and we're so impressed! I feel like this was the most efficient way to see our nations capitol! In a busy city it helps to have a tour guide to explain all the right moves to make at every attraction! Drivers were more than informative and extremely courteous!

Wendy Mahon: I took several tours with Gray Line around D.C., and also to the Presidents homes. The tours were very good. The bus drivers were very good about explaining the history about what we were going to be seeing. Also they were good about giving us clear cut directions of what to do, and where to meet up after the tours. Customer service was really good about telling us where to wait for the buses after checking in.

Ashish Gogi: When the bus stopped at a sight seeing area, we all got off. Next thing you know 2 minutes later the bus leaves while we are still outside. Terrible service. When we were about to book their tours, we could hear one of their employees taking a high and mean tone with one of the customers over the phone. The guy on the end of the phone wanted a refund as I knew this since the employee told the customer it wasn't their fault, he missed the tour bus. To this day, I remember how the Gray line tours were the worst and unappreciated. In the end I missed practically all of the tour and never got a refund.

Veronica Hodges-Johnson: Horrible experience. No live tour guide for first part of trip. We were given earphones to plug in but the file was either way behind or way ahead due to traffic and was not adjusted. I believe that the driver did not speak much English and could not keep the audio in sync. We hopped off At a stop and had to wait a very, very long time in the cold for the bus to pick us back up. In the meantime, another tour bus had two of their buses to come during the interim for pickups of its customers. When the Grayline bus finally came they had a tour guide but only people sitting by him could hear him. The mic must not have worked. He was sitting among the guest. We could not hear him so we used the earphones to hear the virtual guide. We have put Grayline on our list as Never Use Again. The experience was awful. I hope the others who were waiting and complaining with us will share their experience.

Kelly Siler: Our family of 6 took the DC after dark tour then the following day we took the day tour. We all loved them both! Beverly and Kenny were both great helping us at the desk and Herbert B and Bob were excellent drivers. We enjoyed seeing the sights in this stress-free way.

Dave Brogan: I was surprised by the lower ratings of this tour company. I can't speak for anyone else's experiences. My experience was excellent. I booked the Gettysburg tour from DC. The tour took about 10.5 hours. The value per price of this tour is amazing. My customer service interactions were satisfactory, the bus was clean, and the tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Very happy!

Maggie Jean: Taking the nighttime tour of Washington dc was a wonderful experience. Our guide/driver was terrific, and staff was great.

J J: We went on the night tour with our 3 kids ages 9, 7, & 3. Advice!!!! if you go on the night tour: Pack snacks!! There are no places open to grap food and the tour was much longer than the 3 hours the website says. Also dress warm!!!!!!! Really warm, we were on a double decker bus with an open top, We had NO idea we would be on an open top bus for a night tour! & we were given no warning. It gets cold even on a 78* day come night time, on top of a bus wind blowing, it gets cold and there are not enough seats in the bottom part for people to move to if they are too cold. 2 jackets, gloves, pants, hat, face masks, and blankets would have made our tour 100% better. They picked up us from the cherry hill RV park where we were staying and brought us back at the end of the tour. That was nice. All the stops were great! enough time to take pictures and get back on, also the night tours are way less crowded, we were able to get close and see everything, the people next to us said they did the day tour and just waited in line and never got to see up close because there was too many people. So that was great. We had a good bus driver and other than being freezing cold it was fun! My husband and kid went up top and my other 2 kids and myself sat in the bottom of the bus so we could switch as the kids got too cold and we were able to keep our bottom seats saved that way.

Anne-Marie Katz: I booked two buses for a wedding in May 2013. Going from the hotel to the church I knew that one bus would be sufficient but later we would need two buses to get guests from the church to the hotel. Two buses arrived at the hotel one to take groomsmen and other for guests. Arriving at the church the drivers decided that there was not a need for two buses for the return so one driver left. We had stranded guests at the church. The frist person I contacted at Gray Line said she knew the reason one bus left but could not tell me. When I spoke with the operations they said one bus (still driveable) broke down and left to get it fixed and thought it would be back in time 20 minutes later for pick up. The garage to get it fix was miles. Refused full refund.

Michael Mladenka: I bought the 2 day grand tour for my family of 4 visiting Washington DC. The very first level me in the description of the itinerary was “Guided Capitol Tour”. With this being the case I didn’t bother to contact my Representative or Senator to sign up for one. It wasn’t until the end of my tour when I inquired why we hadn’t done this that I was informed that this had been removed from the trip, no explanation was given. The lady behind the desk was very apologetic and told us that this has been a mistake on the website for some time and it hasn’t been corrected yet. It must have been going on for a long time because the printed itinerary that was at the desk didn’t have it on there at all. Very disappointing, caused my family to miss out on one of the most important sites in DC. VERY DISAPPOINTED!! 💩💩💩

DC Duck Tours Administration Office: what do users think?


Jessica Coates: What a fantastic way to spend a day! With an injured foot, a pregnant lady, and a little kid, I set out to make the best of DC. None of us was doing too well walking and we spied the Ducks. I was able to sign up online for a tour in minutes. They were easy to find at Union Station. It was a Saturday afternoon during peak Cherry Blossom festival, so they were a bit behind schedule due to traffic (which isn't their fault and can't be helped.) Larry at the meeting point was kind and professional and kept us informed. Our Captain Salim arrived with a bright smile and full of information to share. His knowledge of the area is vast, his love of his work and our country shined through every word. The tour itself was fabulous. We enjoyed the sights so much. We really enjoyed sitting down and watching through the open air Duck. When we hit the water we all squealed with glee. We saw real ducks. We saw planes from Reagan Airport fly overhead. It was just delightful at every moment. Capt. Salim was kind enough to stop for a bathroom break when we requested. I cannot recommend this tour enough. Please go. It's great for all ages and you get a free quacker!

Leah Hickson: Short tour, relaxing and mildly adventurous. Great way to see some sights on a sunny day

Elizabeth Rivera: Captain Steve was the BEST!! We all had a great time. He was extremely knowledge, made a lot of good jokes, got along with everyone, and made sure everyone was smiling. He offered lots of opportunities for great pictures and even allowed the kids (no matter how old) to steer the boat in the water! Definitely the BEST tour I've ever been on. Great memories that will last a lifetime!

shannon mcdonnell: Amazing tour. We were a group of 7, 3 adults and 4 children. We all loved it. Very safe!!!! Enjoyed the tour of D.C. on land and then embarking into the water. The kids all loved taking a turn "driving" in the water. They also loved their quackers! Ride and enjoy with confidence here!

A M: Enjoyed the tour with my 17 yearold niece who was visiting from England. The captain was kind and knowledgeable. The amphibian is really cool. Great experience!

Sheryl Snyder: Seven of us (two of them, children) went on this tour. We all agreed it was well worth the money! You get a land tour first, then you get a (shorter) water tour. The water tour is mainly for the fun of it...and it was indeed fun! Whoever wanted to, got to sit at the helm and steer the DUCK/Boat. Very enjoyable. I would recommend it. Granted, you get a LOT of information/History in a very short time, but, unless you want to walk all up and down DC, it is a great way to get a fun tour of our Nation's Capitol.

Mykhael Michaels: Had an amazing experience! Our captain was very entertaining and educational. He knew everything about the area. "TIP". Book your tickets in advance or run the risk of the tour beginning sold out. But if you happen to be in the area and they said it is sold out ask about a stand by option. That's what we did and we got on. Very fun and educational, I learned so much!

Attila Molnar: Great tour on a fun duck boat vehicle. Particularly well suited for kids as ours had a fantastic time. Company takes safety seriously as there was lightning just before we were to do the water part so that was cancelled but Anthony was able to make alternate arrangements that we were really happy with.

Papa Babacar Senghor: If you want to know all about D.C. It's funny, entertaining and educative.

Cathy Whitley: This was a great tour. Our guide was knowledgeable, funny, and safety minded. I appreciated his interaction with his audience, including the kids. It was a great tour and worth every penny. No regrets.
