My wife and I did the "DC It All" tour through On Board Tours and loved it! It was a 6 hour long bus tour with an hour long boat tour on the Potomac River. Our tour guide was Nick and he was fabulous! He was a wealth of information, but not much of a comedian. :) Nick was full... More

My husband, son (16)' and I took the DC All In Tour (6 hr) with Nick as our guide. The tour was fantastic and offered us the full day devoted to the monuments and city viewing. Nick does a great job engaging with the tourists and is well-versed, self-taught, and experienced as he is born-bred DC native. We thought the... More

We took the Lights tour our first evening in DC with Chris and Chris. The guide Chris was WONDERFUL! He was very informative and we enjoyed his sense of humor. He told us so much information and the relevance about each of the monuments and memorials. Information you would not know, if you don't have a guide with you. I... More

Best way to see DC. Transfer points on maps can be a little confusing. They are using more non air conditioned buses than they were two years ago.

We decided to secure the "The Best of DC" which is scheduled for 4 hours. The tour bus was properly air conditioned - on a 90 degree day it was just awful. When we and others on the tour complained the bus driver said she had no problem but she had an additional fan up front! The tour bus was... More

The DC night tour was excellent. Our tour guide Nick was extremely knowledgeable and funny. He was considerate of each guest and even waited for us when we lost sight of the group. His talks were insightful and easy to listen to. Thanks Nick for a great tour.

The tour was marred by a series of miscommunications. Most frustrating was the fact that they changed their pick up point. We had walked about 2 miles round trip to make sure we knew where it was, and then called and emailed to confirm it. We left a message on their answering machine but that call was not returned. Our... More

We visited DC on June 28th and 29th and didn't want the hassle of dealing with traffic, parking, etc, so decided on an organized six hour tour of DC. Nick is an awesome tour guide with great jokes. It was so refreshing to have someone so young with so much insight into the history of our great nation. He obviously... More

On Sat. June 28th my wife, grandson and I took a 6 hour tour with On Board. Our tour guide was a fine young man named Nick McCall. I found him to be very knowledgeable, professional, courteous, helpful and made the tour fun and interesting. When we got to the Viet Nam Memorial Wall he helped me find one of... More
