We reserved a bus through Reston Limousine for a move on Tuesday, September 9 from the Gaylord National to the National Archives building. Our driver, Leroy Swailes, was great! He did an outstanding job with the move. The route took less time than we imagined so he even took the long way around to the Archives and drove past the... More

I have worked Annie and Azeb for a while. They are two smart girls who understand the business needs well. So far, all my clients are happy with the drivers . One gave good word to Mr. Leory. It seems that the management team there cares about the client, which is great! Keeping excellent going!

We had an awful experience with this tourbus provider. You get what you pay for; save yourself the headaches, it's not worth it.

I contracted with Excellent Tours for a custom African American history tour to occur on Sat, July 26th. The contract was for 2 buses (1 55-passenger bus and 1 34-passenger bus). The tour was part of a number of activities planned for my family's reunion which my sister and I were coordinating. Needless to say, this tour was a disaster... More

Dear Trip Advisor, The family tour arranged and planned by their leader for August had misunderstandings and a lack of coordination from the start. As the tour operators we arrange and plan the details of the tour depending upon the size of the group, the composition of the group, the type of tour, and the time the group allocates. On... More

Nick and Joe did a phenomenal job keeping everyone awake and entertained on our late-night monument tour. We had a large group and the company worked well with us on group rates and helped customize our tour to what we wanted to see. Very clean and comfortable bus, and friendly and knowledgable staff make Excellent Tours live up to their... More

My family of 12 visited the DC area and toured with Hank and Mr. Joe. Both were very accommodating and flexible. After what seemed a bit of an unorganized start (some miscommunication it seemed regarding the tour and planned events), Hank and Joe made adjustments to ensure that we were satisfied and that everything was to our liking. Both guys... More

Having lived in the DC area for only a few months, we wanted to take an official, organized tour to learn more about the sights. We tried an Excellent Tour after coming across a 50% off discount on Groupon. It was the right decision for us! Hank gave a great tour (as a lifelong Washingtonian he is an amazing source... More

Nick was our tour guide on Monday, July 8, 2013. Tony was our driver. Nick was very humerous and easy to understand. His information was accurate and delivered in a light-hearted manner. We quickly saw the key monuments and attractions in a three-hour span. Afterwards, one of our group left her phone on the bus; Tony returned when called, and... More
