Fantastic tour. Larry (tour guide) and Chris (driver) we’re amazing. They were so nice, funny, and informative. We got to visit so many places that we probably wouldn’t have made it to on our own. It was so nice not to worry about driving and to be dropped off and picked up at all the different spots. Highly recommend!!

DC in a Day
Sheila_T
, Sep 2021
The best part of this tour was being able to see so many iconic Washington DC landmarks in a short time. Some of the sights were the US Capitol, the White House, the Washington Monument, Lincoln, Jefferson , FDR, and MLK monuments plus the WW2, Korean, Marines, Airforce, and Vietnam memorials -even a peek at Arlington Cemetery and the Pentagon. - the list goes on. It was a rainy day so the bus tour was a great way to get around without and it gave us a great introduction to the city.

The DC day tour is packaged to give you a comprehensive list of all the important landmarks of the city. Thank you for enjoying it! Zuma

This is a great tour for first time visitors. Very enjoyable ride and tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Communication at the beginning of the trip was a little lacking. We were able to resolve the problem favorably. Plan on being at your pick up spot 30 minutes early.
