Had a great time on the DC it all tour with Larry and Ingrid. They are lovely people and worked well together. Larry had a sense of humor and was very knowledgeable. I haven't been to DC in 20 yrs so this was a great way to "speed tour" the sites. It was near perfect amount of information and time... More

He even walked to all the sights with us if he could find a parking place. Their was a lot of walking involved in this tour... More

It was a freezing cold day yet we had a wonderful time on our tour. Our guide was Nick and he was funny and well informed. We saw a lot of sights and Nick was always present to give us more information and take pictures if so desire da. It was like a personalized tour in a comfortable bus.

Did the day tour and night tour with Onboard Washington, DC. Found the tour guides to be informative and engaging. The cost of the tours were worth the money. I would recommend them when visiting Washington, DC. John J Toronto, Canada

We did the day time tour on our first morning in Washington. It was a great way of seeing the city. Our tour guide DIon was fantastic, he gave us a great insight into all the famous sites and monuments. He went above and beyond to ensure we saw everything that we wanted to and advised on how best to... More

Did the night time tour. It was awesome and our tour guide Nick McCall was amazing! So knowledgeable, funny and interesting! Loved him and the tour. I would highly recommend it. They picked up and returned us to our hotel door step. Sites were great at night (even in 32 degree weather). Time at each site was adequate and the... More

We did the monuments by moonlight tour tonight which is a fantastic tour in itself, but made immensely better by our tour guide Larry!! 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
