Amazing DC Tour
Jessica D, Apr 2022 Verified
If you want to see all the major sights in DC, this is the tour for you!!! Dion was an absolutely amazing tour guide!!! So informative and funny. Dion had the ability to give you the history of DC in a way our younger kids would understand and enjoy. Couldn't have asked for a better tour and a better tour guide. Dion was so great, that at multiple stops we had people who weren't even on our tour try to listen in! Our family loved that we all stayed together as a group during the entire tour and Dion explained every single monument/sight that we walked through. We saw other tours during the day, and they were not as thorough as ours! Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting DC!!!

I loved the tour it was fun. You get to see the main places without having to have your own transportation. They offer water. The only thing I would change is maybe giving more time to see the places.

A very intensive and exciting tour. Although I visited 30% of places the night before after arrival, the guide supplied with many facts the following day that made me look at the PoI from a different perspective and find my way in the new city. We had enough time to walk through the monuments, temples and to take pictures. There is much walk, so consider casual shoes, an umbrella wouldn't harm either, if you are visiting at a rainy season. If you are the first time in the DC, that tour will give you the basics and help you build new routes to explore the Capital at your pace.

This six-hour tour was perfect for my visiting friend from out of town. Nick (tour guide) was fun and very knowledgeable about all sights and the history of the sights. Thomas (the driver) was great with keeping us on time and getting us around to the sights safely. This tour is great for someone who doesn't want to worry about parking in DC or looking up lots of facts about sights. I am from the metro area and really enjoyed the tour.

I have been to DC multiple times and still saw and learned a lot from our guide who's nickname was Map. It was my friends first time and he highly enjoyed the whole experience. You hit all the major monuments and some not so major. I highly recommend

Excellent tour thanks to our amazing tour guide Nick. He delivered such great historical facts and knowledge while also convening such witty jokes and banter! Excellent driving on his part too I must add. Great and enriching experience seeing all the historical monuments and several memorials. Everything through out the tour is well planned out and timed perfectly at each spot. Would highly recommend.
