This tour Company is a hidden gem! Would recommend it to everybody! We went on a day-trip to DC and Philly in early december. A lovely and busy day. Excellent driver/tour guide (Steve). It was just me and my husband on the trip, and because...More
Compared a few DC day tour operators and found this to be the most value-for-money - it covered most of the attractions in DC as well as included a buffet lunch. Steve, our guide/driver, was polite and interesting to talk to and gave us some...More
Started out at 0730 and got home at 11.30pm - what a brilliant day. 3 friends in a SUV with a great tour guide Stephen who kept us well informed at all the sights. For an Extra $20.00 pp we added on the Philly tour...More
Although our driver (Steven) was funny he didn't give us any history or information on what we were seeing. We didn't have a "tour guide" as such perhaps because there was only four of us on this tour. The one day tour to Washington DC...More
I can't praise ITours high enough, they provided the best experience you could wish for on a day trip to Washington. All the other tour companies included spending a lot of time in Wax Museums which I think is a waste of time as surely...More

We spent 4 hours this morning with Bryant, who guided us through interesting sightseeings in Harlem. Very smart and pleasant guy, he does what he does with a great passion and smile. We loved our gospel experience in a church, it was such a different...More
Our tour guide, Bryant, was fabulous! This was a looooong day to Washington, DC and he made it fun. He was so easy going, yet made sure we stayed on schedule. He was so knowledgeable about each site and its history. It was like spending...More
On our trip to the east coast we were staying in NY city but wanted to go out and explore other parts. We decided to go visit DC. The challanging part was finding a good tour company that would provide you the best value for...More
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the
affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.

Hi Arindam G
We took the iTour day trip to Washington DC in October last year. I should tell you that our trip ended up being just a photo stop tour. We didn't stay in one place very long. There was only four of us on our tour, so we went in a van (quite comfortable). Our tour guide drove us to each stop and gave us a short time (the longest stop would have been an hour) to take photos, then it was back in the van to the next 'photo-stop'.
The departure point was 46 West 46th St, which is the front of a roller-door that has nothing to do with the iTour company themselves, it's just a pick-up address. We had to be there by 7:30am the morning of our tour. We were getting a little concerned that it was a scam because the guy didn't arrive until about 8:00am.
We didn't even get to the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum, because our guide said that it was "too much of a pain". As we have visited DC before, the Smithsonian and Arlington Cemetary were the main reasons we wanted to go back, to spend some more time there. So we were really annoyed when we didn't even get to go to the Smithsonian and the visit to Arlington was at the end of the day so we only had about 15 mins., not enough time to really make your way into the cemetary, let alone see anything much of it.
It's sad to say but the lunch buffet was probably a highlight. I can't tell you the name of the restaurant or exactly where it was, but it was a very nice buffet with more choice than you could imagine.
We stopped at a gas station (truck stop) for food on the way home. We didn't arrive back in NY until about 10:30pm.
Don't get me wrong, it was a good day but we were disappointed that we didn't get to see the things I mentioned. We are planning another trip next year and we've decided that we will spend 5-7 days in DC, so we can have a proper look around and spend time in the Smithsonian and Arlington.
I hope you enjoy your trip.
