Our tour guide Nick was incredible: informative and funny, he kept his energy up the entire time and had an infectious spirit. He really cared that we were having a good time and learning something, one of the best tour guides I've ever had.

Nick was a wonderful tour guide! We left on time and he gave wonderful information and kept it fun. We didn’t feel rushed and saw so many things it would have been difficult to see on our own in a day. Highly recommend USA Tours. It was booked easily via Cool Destinations and the whole thing was a breeze.

7hrs flew by and was never bored despite the 36F temp. day. Larry our tour guide has that uncanny sense of humor that didn't get old one bit. Full of info, native of DC, he kept us engaged especially with the breakdown by no. of minutes we spent at each step. I wish we had seen the front of the Captial building and maybe closer views to the Washington monument and White house, but still, so much seen in one day. Believe the reviews about Cool Destinations tours, booked their Arlington tour and was just as great!

Our guide, Larry, was AWESOME! Super knowledgeable and funny! Our driver, Antonio, was awesome too! They made sure we saw all the highlights and several “extras” we weren’t expecting.

When booking a 7 hour tour you right away wonder if it’s gonna drag or not be entertaining. But this was not the case. This tour was amazing. Not only did we see so many attractions. We had an amazing tour guide in Joey and our driver Milton was amazing. The knowledge Joey had of everything and anything about Washington DC was amazing. She was the perfect tour guide. We enjoyed the whole tour and could have gone even longer if she wanted. It was the best day. Plus your not on the bus a lot. You do a decent amount of walking which really makes the tour perfect. 5 stars and a huge shout out to Joey & Milton !!!!!!!!

Not like any history class you’ve Ever taken! Nick our guide was wonderful. Managed the tour group, elements and kept us entertained. Highly recommend the six hour tour. We had a nice stop for lunch at the Washington Harbor instead Of a food court.
