“Beautiful!”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

What a great history lesson. The monuments are beautiful in their own ways. The new WWII memorial is very nice. The reflecting pool was very low on water. People were actually walking on the sides because it looked like an additional sidewak. Take enough time to visit each memorial. They are all unique and deserve their due time/respect.

“Great way to spend a few hours”
Reviewed 16 November 2013 via mobile

Very peaceful area. It is possible to spend more time that you expect walking in the gardens and looking at the various monuments. We spent most of a day.

“Great Tour in Washington”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

I had a freat time in Washington this week and almost full tour on the National Mall. Any one visiting Washington this is never miss. there are so many tour operators that does the tour but i found this one much better than the rest cause all of their buses have high deck at the top for a panoramic view. Please make sure you pile several layers of warm cloths it's freezing out there

“Amazing”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

When you see this National Mall from an aerial shot, it doesn't look that big. But when you walk from the Capitol to the end of the Mall it's 2.5 miles. It's beautiful along the way, as you see families having picnics, boys playing frisbee and tourists amazed at our nations Capitol!
