Fantastic trip right from the word go, bang on time, really nice coach. Well organised, Jonathon the tour guide was exceptional and very hard working. The weather made it even more enjoyable sat in Washington having an ice cream. Really would recommend the trip you get to see all the sites shame the water was switched if at the Lincoln memorial (or Forest Gump memorial if you watched the movie.

Z was our tour guide and really made the day informative and enjoyable. One member of the group was slightly disruptive and argumentative but Z was very professional in dealing with him. The trip itself was a really good day out, back in Times Square around 830pm and we felt like we had seen all the highlights of DC. Thoroughly recommend.

It was an an amazing tour to Washington DC. Everything ran like clockwork and was well planned. The tour guide was Jonathan was very knowledgeable and shared the rich history of American Independence, the founding fathers, the civil war, Arlington and Washington DC. It was an awesome tour and enjoyed by the whole family.

It is a big day, lots to see so an early start and late finish. For hubby and I this was the perfect 'whistle stop' tour of all the important and historic places that DC has to offer. Our guide had amazing knowledge as she conversed in both English and German. Just the right amount of information. Pick up and drop off was easy and there were stops for refreshments. Highly recommend.

The day trip was pleasant and cheerful. We saw the highlights you need to see in Washington DC. We had enough time to take our pictures. The drivers/guides were friendly.

well organised and the guide gave a lot of interesting information. Despite of raining cats and dogs (which of course is beyond the control of the organizer :-) ) the trip was worth to do !

Thoroughly enjoyed this trip and especially our tour guide, Bruno. He was very knowledgeable and shared helpful tips with us. Keeping a large group of diverse people together for 14 hours (encountered an accident which delayed our trip) was a challenge in itself. Saw everything we hoped to see.
