Nick was our guide and I truly believe we were the most blessed group in DC that day. We got to hear the stories behind each monument, who the people were, what they did both good and bad. We were blown away. I had read reviews about Nick before going so when he introduced himself I felt like we were going to have a good time but truly it was better than I could have guessed! Thank you Nick you are awesome!

The bus tour was convenient and informative, given the difficulty to move around Washington DC with private vehicles. The guide gave enough time to move around the places and take photographs. However, the boat cruise was not conducted, which should have been told earlier, and the cost of the tour should have been reduced accordingly.

Great experience and value (time & money wise)! Highly recommend!!!!!

Tour Guide Josh was AWESOME. As a second generation tour guide, he was so knowledgeable and engaging. He did a fabulous job!! Driver Thomas provided a safe and comfortable ride, even providing ice cold bottled water on a very hot August day! We would never have gotten to all these places on our own, or learned as much. An excellent experience at a very affordable price. So glad we took this tour - great way to experience DC!
