Knowledgeable guide. We were able to see the major monuments in only 6 hours. Staff were courteous and well-organized.

This is the only tour our hotel concierge recommended. We were to be picked up at the hotel but when no one came, the provider sent an Uber. Willis was our guide - he was OK but the microphone kept cutting out. Not his fault....More

If you want a whirlwind tour, you will like this one. We had twenty minutes to tour the Korean War, Lincoln and Vietnam Memorials. We spent a disproportionate amount of time at the WWII and Jefferson memorials. I would not recommend this tour.

Enjoyed trip and our escort he knew a lot. Would be 5 but found boat ride boring. Would have preferred seeing more monuments.

My mother walks slowly due to a knee issue and they were not very accomodating. I would call around and ask the tour companies to see if they have wheelchairs that they can provide.
