We took our three grandchildren-ages 11, 13, and 15- on the three hour tour of Washington. Nick was our guide and he couldtn't have been better. He was full of facts and history and he was entertaining too. We couldn't have had a better guide. The children and adults both learned so much.

Tour guide Christopher and driver Cameron were excellent representatives. Very knowledgeable of routes, sites, and history. Christopher did the entire narration without notes - very impressive. The monuments and sites visited on the tour were beautiful at night.

Nick and Junior were great. Very polite. Nick is probably the youngest tour guide in DC but he knows his cities history, it is clear this is a passion for him. The background information and having someone else drive you from place to place was well worth the price. Sit back and relax, there was plenty of bottled water supplied.... More

After reading some other reviews and this being our first time in DC. I thought this was the best way to get an overview of the major points of interests. I'm so glad I did! Our tour guide Nick was awesome! His knowledge of the monuments and sense of humor made this one of the best trips I've taken!

Late getting started; last minute change in tour guides; due to their lateness - rushed the viewing at each stop; skipped stops at the end (No Vietnam); circled Iwo Jima with no stop; then wandered our way back to DC; tour guide finally got off at the METRO Red Line stop and left the rest (majority) of the bus with...

Our tour started out late, we were told bus held up in DC traffic, others on board said nothing held the bus up , just late picking up. 9:15 pick up became 10:30 pick up. John made the comment as we boarded "they don't seem upset" Driver made wrong turn another delay, we were rushed thru the Mount Vernon visit,... More

We did the 6 hour tour with Nick as our guide. Not sure what you you're paying him, but it's not enough. Glib but highly informative. Very entertaining. Kept it fun for the whole 6 hours. If available, hire more just like him. Had a blast.

We took the DC All tour, Our guide Nick really impressed us with his top knowledge, leadership and jokes during this 6 hour tour. We traveled often from upstate New York to Florida but never stop to really visit our Capital. So we took the best tour we saw on the internet and do not regret it. Nick made the... More

We did the DC It All! tour. Nick was our tour guide today. He did a great job! He is very personable and knows just the right amount of information one wants on a 6 hour tour. He kept track of a bus load of people and was friendly with all. We felt very well taken care of and Junior... More
