He was hilarious and knew about all the monuments and history, could answer any questions. We were new to the city from New Zealand and didn't know our way home so after the tour he personally...

Our tour guide was amazing, was able to show us all the key attractions, he knew all the facts and figures. He was able to get the whole tour down quickly because it was so cold, we were able to get to all the locations quickly.

Nick was our tour guide for the evening and what a wonderful evening it was. We were impressed by Nick's knowledge, personality and professionalism. He and the driver worked seamlessly to get us to all our stops after we had several (uncontrollable) detours. Nick really gave the impression that he loves his job and loves the city. Was very open... More

The tour started late and ran late and even then we were not taken to all the stops listed on the web site! We did not get to see the FDR Memorial or the... More

Our guide was Nick and the driver was Melanie. They had good rapport and the tour was smooth and professional. Nick knew many facts, figures, dates, and interesting stories and he slipped in a few (actually funny) jokes! So many stops are built in to a short time span that we felt a bit rushed at times, but the tour... More

Janice was extremely nice when she met us at the hotel. After a long bus trip, she was a sight for sore eyes. The next day, she picked us up from the hotel very promptly and we were delighted to learn that she was our tour guide! Throughout the day she gave us a valuable insight into the history of... More

Nick was a great tour guide during our night tour of D.C. on November 10th. He had a wealth of information to share in a humorous way. This is a wonderful and easy way to see the sights. I would greatly recommend On Board Tours and Nick. Until next time D.C.
