Good way to see DC

We took this tour on Sunday 7/3 so there were a few roads blocked off getting ready for the big celebration the next day. But John (tour guide) did a good job of making sure we... read more

Found DC IT ALL TOUR on line and then Ronnie, the concierge at the Mayflower, when we asked about an air conditioned bus tour which would hit all the monuments including the Jefferson Memorial, Lincoln, etc. he told us On Board was the one. He was right, as near as I can tell. From what I looked at there really... More

My friends and I did the 3 hour night tour on 7/16/16. Our tour guide was Larry & our bus driver was Khalid. We had such a great time & learned so much! Larry & Twinkle Toes made the tour so exciting and funny. He was very knowledgeable about every monument/memorial we visited and kept us all entertained the entire... More

Having just two days to see as much as we could in Washington, my daughter and I booked this tour a few days before our visit. Efficiently run, well planned out and a terrific driver/guide. Saw more in six or seven hours than we would have in two days on our own. Highly recommend.

Our tour guide Joan was very knowledgeable and helpful. She did a great job and very informative. Our trip was truly enjoyable because the schedule of the tour was considerable to everyone. The tour caters to diverse population of travelers both children and adults.

This tour was great.....our tour guide Joan and our driver Robert were fantastic. It was a long day and the weather was extremely hot and humid but at no time did Joan rush us and continually made sure we were well hydrated throughout the day. Consequently because of the heat and not being rushed we ran overtime but that made... More

My wife and I booked the 'DC It All Tour" with On Board DC Tours in January 2016. I was very grateful that they accepted a last-minute booking (i.e. the afternoon before) and, upon arrival at the office (departure point), found that we were the only two people on the tour that day. This meant that we effectively received an... More

Please note that this was my second time taking this type of tour in DC. I went to DC a few years ago by myself and loved it, but this time I went with my wife and son. I don't think they were prepared for the busy season. These are the things that made this a bad experience for us.... More
