My friends and I were looking for something to do between touring the Van Gogh Experience and having dinner in D.C. We had about 2 hours to kill.

The hotel concierge recommended this private tour – and it was PERFECTION. It offered us time to relax while being whisked around D.C. just before dusk, allowing us to see so many different monuments and hear a bit of history about each.

Our driver Cameron had a great sense of humor and included so many fun details about the city and history. He gave us time at several monuments to get out and walk around. It was the perfect finish to a perfect day for the four of us. We felt perfectly safe riding around D.C. in this cart (it has seatbelts and safety plastic between the driver and passengers. And one stop even offered restrooms.

We highly recommend this 2 hour tour of monuments. Note that there are no cup holders for your water bottles or drinks, but they are allowed.

This is a great intro tour of the main highlights of DC. There are some sites that allow the right amount of time to get off and explore. Nervous about the snowstorm expected that jafternoon so happy tour wasn’t affected/cancelled. It was a blistering cold morning (10am) so adding the doors to the electrical cart was a perfect touch. We were running 3 minutes late & received a courtesy call whether or not we would still be joining the tour. Great customer service on Kevin's part (tours don’t always call). Kevin was an incredible tour guide he is very knowledgeable about the history of DC, monuments and great sense of humor! Highly recommend!!!

Our driver Courtland was truly great and added to our wonderful experience. He was able to share so many details about the city and monuments that we passed along the way.

Most of all I would say that it was nice having a vehicle to ourselves given the size of our group. I also opted for this unique option which my kids especially enjoyed!

I would also like to commend them on the booking which proved to be flexible given that I missed my first appointment the day prior.

We were in DC for a wedding and seeing DC for the first time. We decided to try to get in as much as we could do we booked an Urban Adventure 2 hour tour in an electric car with Steve B.

We had small kids with us that like to interrupt with things they want to share while he's trying to share the sites and history. He was very patient and tried to get them involved. Steve B answered all our questions and helped to get us many good pictures. We'd definitely recommend Steve on your tour and he even directed us to a good restaurant and preferred kid attractions.

Took our 3 children on this tour (ages 12, 8 and 8). We were concerned that a tour starting at 8pm would be too late after a long day in the city but decided to go anyway. So glad we did! Our tour guide was amazing and even kept our 8 year-olds interest during a late, rainy evening. Our guide gave us things to look for at each stop (misspelled word at the Lincoln monument, etc) and told us funny/interesting stories about all the landmarks. Do not pass this well organized unique tour up! When it started to rain we were given ponchos. Everyone on those big tour buses looked miserable as we zipped by them at the same stops. Our whole family agreed we would do this tour agin! Interesting fact: did you know that the MLK statue doesn’t have legs? They will be completed when the country is unified. What a powerful statement for our children to hear!

Had a fantastic time. Our tour guide Barry was very friendly and insightful, while also holding an air of professionalism and calmness. For every stop we made, he was able to go into a great depth into the context of where we were, and the history surrounding it. Even when we were bogged down by traffic in DC, Barry still managed to find a way to make the tour engaging and down to earth. If and when I return to the city, I will most certainly be partaking in this service again, as it proved to be an incredible way of navigating around the area, learning about all of the significant landmarks and buildings, and all done in a pro-efficient service.

We had a great time and it was a fantastic experience. Our driver and guide, local Washingtonian Cortland Wingfield, was excellent. He shared a great deal of his knowledge regarding DC, including the museums and monuments. We highly recommend.

Our tour guide, Dante, was fantastic. We were a bit lit & he accommodated us no problem. The vehicle was comfy, we got to see so many things around the city that you couldn’t walk too all in one day. My kids , ages 8-17, really enjoyed it.

This is an excellent company for investing to have a good tour of the Washington DC monuments. I was helped first by David and guided to Sophie who set my tour, re-affirming the reservations so I felt secure. My guide Monty was the best and knew so many extras of the history of Washington DC having been born there. He showed such great enthusiasm for the different sites delivering good information of each site which you just do not normally pick up. I purchased the whole tour to not have a problem with how and what I did and it was the perfect choice. YOU CANNOT beat that Cart. It is comfortable and cute as a bug. The staff is excellent here. They are the tops.

We only had a few hours to spend in the city and this was the perfect tour. They take you past the major sites such as the Capitol and White House, but they also take you to several memorials and give you a bit of time to walk around. Our tour guide was not only informative, but he was a great storyteller. He was even able to suggest a great area with several restaurants to choose from for dinner after the tour. I would highly recommend this tour especially for those who don’t have a lot of time but want to see the major sites.
