Our guide (Sally) and driver (Zuma) were amazing! This tour is really six hours and every minute is worth it. It’s fast paced so make sure you bring comfy shoes, water and snacks. If there are too many people out touring, you may miss out on some of the sites but whatever you get to experience is worth it. The boat ride at the end helps end the tour in a relaxing way. Book this day adventure - no regrets here!

This tour was amazing, Cassie and Chris were phenomenal. We were the only two who booked the full day tour in our group so when the half day was done, it was us and them. Cassie was extremely full of historical knowledge and delivered it with great enthusiasm and excitement. Chris was more then professional and accommodating, he even dropped us off closer to our hotel. These two made our first trip to Washington kick off on the right foot!!!! Thank y'all so much!!!

Very good driver and excellent tour guide Ty! Enjoyed greatly the tour we had! My only issue is I payed for a 6 hour tour that was not like the description. It said we were going to Washington monument and inside never happened and they dropped us off at 3 an hour and a half early. If this didn’t happen it would have been 5 stars but I feel cheated a little
