    The bus tour is a wonderful way to orient yourselves to the city. You will see a number of here wrenching memorials that maKe you question why have we not lived up to the ideals of our forefathers. We lost some very great people who would be disappointed by the lack of progress we have made.

    This was a wonderful sampler tour—We had a very informative tour guide. It was a little hard to finish seeing the entire tour features like the Korean War Memorial, as we were running out of time. Nevertheless, if you only have time for a short visit to DC, this was the perfect tour! -Lots of walking-so wear comfortable shoes!

    Great price for what you get! We did the three hour tour with our two young kids. Everyone had a fun time! Knowledgeable and engaging tour guide, we got to see all of the well known monuments (including the White House!), and were driven around on a fully enclosed shuttle (just a little bit of walking involved). Highly recommend!
