Great Tour!

The tour group ended up being small because of the chilly time of year (actually, just our family!), so Brian graciously picked us up from our hotel to save us the confusion of using the Metro. From there we had the best day, despite the cooler temps and drizzles. He was a wealth of information, taking us to all the major DC memorials and stops, and then went out of his way for us to visit the Basilica, which was on our "wish list." So thankful we had Brian take us out for the day! If you book his tour, you will definitely enjoy it!

This was by far the nicest city tour my family has ever been on. Brian is so knowledgeable and has a passion for history and sharing it. He was accommodating and worked around our tour desires. The van was clean and a nice ride. Honestly, this beats the city bus tours, hands down.

Best tour ever!
Oct 2019
This was the best tour we have been on. I actually have never done a tour before and had thought about getting on one of the big bus hop off buses but read reviews on this tour and decided to give it a try. Brian is so full of history and took us to more things they we possibly would have seen in one day on our own. He shared little personal stories and history with us as we toured. We had only 3 couples in our van with a short stop for lunch and then continued on to more places. A super bonus was the small group and getting as much time as we wanted to go into the monuments and see the history of DC. Brian is fantastic and this tour was the highlight of our 10 day trip to the east coast.

Oct 2019 • Friends
My friend and I were only in town for two days and wanted to make the most of our sightseeing time. After researching many different tours, I came across this one and the reviews convinced me to give it a try. It was wonderful! We saw all of the areas of DC that we wanted to get a glimpse of and were able to visit many of them. Brian was very knowledgeable, entertaining, and accommodating to the group. The pace was just right. Well worth the cost!

DON’T MISS THIS TOUR!
Oct 2019
Whether you have one day or a week in DC, this tour is a must. In a few hours you’ll visit all the important monuments and memorials you need to see in DC. Trying to do it on your own would take two or three days at least. Along the way you’ll learn interesting and fun historical facts about the sights and the city itself. The small group (just 6 of us) was so much better than being on a large group bus tour. We have done a lot of traveling and touring...this was one of the best. Well done Brian and Bi-Partisan Tours.

Brian is so knowledgeable and gives 100% to make this the best tour day ever. The van is super comfortable and he makes it as easy as possible to get to the monuments. He can answer questions about everything in DC. Very helpful to have taken this tour the first full day of our vacation in DC. He helped give us suggestions to help plan our next days in DC. Well worth every penny.

Outstanding Tour
Dec 2018
Our tour guide was amazing, everything was 'beautiful' and it was! He was a young man of 26 but, boy, did he know his stuff. He was respectful, kind and informative. I'm so very sorry not to remember his name. We saw so many monuments and places of interest. I can't recommend it enough. Thank you
