We had only a couple days in the Capitol and I checked on Groupon for a tour or something to do in Washington and found this company offer a tour at 45% discount. We purchased the Groupon, called the company and made arrangement where to be picked up ( we were staying outside the DC area otherwise they would have picked us up at our Washington Hotel) We arrived at pick up point to find out there was only one other couple on the tour with us, our tour guide was great! He said seeing how there were only the four of us, we would get a very personable tour with lots of times to get out and walk around. It was great to be in a 9 passenger bus and NOT a 40-50 passenger bus. We actually felt sorry for all the BIG bus tour passengers, they spent their whole tie climbing o and off the bus and no time to see the attraction. Our guide was SO informative and put me to shame with the history he knows of our great country, he has only lived here 8 years and I have never heard a more proud citizen speak of the US as his passion. I wish I could remember all the history I learned from the 3 , 4 and 5th grade that he knew. He was very clear to understand, very informative, did not rush us at all, had a great sense of humor. I can not recommend this company enough. Skip the big bus tours, you won't see nearly 1/4th of all that we saw and learned about.
