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!

Type guide and driver were professional. The guide was young and knew more about D.C it's monuments and buildings than I ever could imagined. Had plenty of time for pictures but never felt rushed. Don't miss this tour with Nick!

We took the 6 hour ONBOARD bus tour a few days ago. The tour guide was very good combining historical information with a good sense of fun. We covered a lot of the main attractions stopping at the major sites (WW2, Korea and Vietnam war memorials, Lincoln, Jefferson, Washington, Roosevelt and MLK memorials, White House etc.) and saw many of...

We had two separate tours of Washington DC and Mount Vernon. We had a terrific tour guide each day his name is David and he combined enthusiasm and knowledge for some wonderful journeys.

I just moved to the city and work at a hotel in Dupont Circle and was given two tickets to the DC The Best Tour in order to get to know the city a bit more. It was awesome! It was a quick 3 hours of all the must-see sights in DC. Our tour guide worked to make and keep... More

Our hotel selected this tour company. Have never taken a bus tour of DC so didn't know exactly what to expect. We chose the 6 hour tour that included a boat ride on the Potomac. Nick was our guide and he did a great job. He was very knowledgeable of the sights and history. Very energetic and friendly. The company... More
