I would have been rated 5 stars if only we completed 8hrs as detailed when i booked it. We started on time but we ended 2 hrs early. I know its raining at that time but we took this tour for us to make memories like taking photos. Much appreciated Of course for the history provided. Worth the money we paid.

This was a very informative tour that covered the monuments, the Capitol, and the National Archives. The web site said to arrive between 8:30-8:45. I arrived at 8:32 and the group had already left. After waiting, and then a phone call, they were able to give me directions so that I could meet up with the group that left early. The tour was supposed to include VIP entrance into both of the buildings and we were simply dropped off in front of the archives without a tour. Our guide, Christopher, was excellent.
The tour was thorough and fun. Josh was an excellent tour guide. We saw so much in the day and never felt rushed
I enjoyed the tours and the guide who I felt kept us safe . All the areas were very informed
Amazing tour very organized they were very friendly from jashewa to the bus driver
Great experience. Couldn’t have seen that much in one day on my own!
