This was by far the best tour I have ever been on. The city is beautiful and the stops along the way were breathtaking. Nick's knowledge of the city and It's history was truly amazing and he had some of the best bad jokes I have ever heard. Leroy, our bus driver, has to have the best suit/alligator skin cowboy...

The On Board tour is a good mid-point between being on a motor coach and an all-walking tour. Make no mistake – you will get in some walking, and at a crisp clip (it’s Washington, DC, whaddya expect?). Also, you gotta love a tour company that appreciates humor, hydration, and air-conditioning. Nick, our tour guide, brought incredible zest, knowledge and... More

My sister and I took the evening tour. It was great, a comfortable bus takes you around the city, stopping at all the main sites. Larry ,our tour guide, knows the city very well and has a funny and pleasant way to tell its stories. We highly recommend !

I enjoyed this tour. The guid was very personable. The tour was everything it was advertised to be. The Arlington part of the tour is rather fast paced and involves a lot of walking so those with difficulty doing a lot of walking might want to consider another tour or paying extra to use the Tram at Arlington.
