Libby was great!
Oct 2021 • Family
I’ve taken this tour before as it is a good intro to the main sites on The Mall on Day One of a week visiting DC with a grandchild. Today was 5 stars because our guide, Libby, was outstanding. Highly recommend Libby & & the tour offers a fine overview.

Sep 2021 • Couples
Fantastic way to see many monuments you wouldn't normally walk all the way to. 3 stops, 15min to 30min each (FDR, Martin Luther King Jr, and Abraham Lincoln for our tour) that give you just enough time to explore. Passed most of the museums and buildings worth seeing and got a great history and info on all of them. Very comfortable too.

Sep 2021 • Couples
Excellent experience and guide. The tour was informative and entertaining. The meeting spot was taken over by protesters and large crowds ( It is DC). However the company sent the drivers to find us all In the crowds, and reached out via text and phone- just awesome customer service. Tour went without a hitch, except for those who could not make the time based on the traffic, although we did wait 20 minutes for them. Would highly recommend!

Amazing Guide Shared Best of DC Monuments in a Breeze
Sep 2021
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.

Great short tour to hit main spots, request Olivia.
Sep 2021 • Friends
Olivia was an excellent guide. Had several questions for her, including things not on this tour and she had the answers. The tour itself is the perfect choice to hit most of the main sites in a short period of time. Olivia is knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor. Excellent dad jokes. 10/10 would recommend definitely request her.

Best of both worlds!
Aug 2021 • Friends
Great tour guide -Align!! We all benefited from his passion for history. Got so much info on DC history-I’ll return bc I enjoy hearing the history. 90 degree weather & we had a cool breeze the whole trip. Never felt hot or uncomfortable. Align has an accent which may be difficult for some to understand but he more than compensates with his willingness to explain & answer questions. Highly recommend this tour. “Best of both worlds” bc you get to ride around in an electric car with your small group of 6 & stop,walk around & return to the car that’s parked right at the door waiting
