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.

Went on the DC night tour 11/12/2014. This tour is a must. DC is beautiful at night and the monuments not as crowded as during the day. Our tour guide, Nick McCall, was very knowledgeable,funny,and made the tour very enjoyable. Great way to see the sights of the city. Thanks, Nick!

I'm a past client of this tour and decided to take it again and bring 2 other people because I remember it being really great. The previous tour guide I had was amazing. He was funny, witty, engaging, kind and respectable. Unfortunately the guide I had this time around was completely different. He was late, I couldn't understand him well... More

This was a great way to see the major monuments Ina different way. The small tour bus was comfortable and the guide, Larry, was great! We had kids, young adults, and a 92 year old veteran on the trip. It was easy to get around & the monuments were beautiful at night. Glad we took the tour!
