  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Perfect night tour! Don't hesitate to book it! Our tour guide was Paul and our bus driver was Sean. They were wonderful! Paul was incredibly knowledgeable. As a history buff, I can tell you that his facts were right on, and I learned a tremendous amount. He was hilarious and he sang with a great singing voice. But the thing that was most impressive, was his compassion and care for each member of his tour. He took the time to help a grandfather and grandson find a family member's name on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. When a couple did not come back to the bus, he had Sean drive around the monument until we found them.

    In order to see each monument, it does entail quite a bit of walking. Paul was very clear about the time allotment at each location, and we never felt rushed. The Lincoln Memorial and the Korean Memorial had lost electricity and were in complete darkness; metro police blocked everyone from seeing both monuments. Paul felt do sorry for the inconvenience, although it was not his fault at all that he added the Eisenhower Memorial and an up close tour of the Capitol Building.

    Note:
    They give unlimited water to tour guests.

    The gathering place is a little confusing because it's lots of tours meeting in the same area. Once you check in, they send you to a line for your tour and then place you on buses until each bus fills.

    We had an absolute blast! Upon arrival, we checked in promptly, and all group leaders were friendly. We started on time, and my tour guide Raphael, was very knowledgeable and accommodating. The day started off with amazing weather, but we experienced about a 15 min rain shower. Raphael provided ponchos for the group, so that we were not soaked sitting on the open top bus. We continued our tour, and he kept the moral high all throughout. Would highly recommend if you would like to knockout a good bit of DC city touring in one day. We saw a ton.

    Great experience. It is a fast paced walking tour, so old folks like us struggle to keep up. Toward the end we completely lost sight of our guide and stood there waiting for him to come back and find us. Lol
    Awesome tour rich in history. Once we were lost and the guide came back to find us, we opted to separate from the tour and hang out at the library of congress. My wife and I are both book nerds so we were able to get library cards and enter the library floor itself. Great experience.

    Kris was rated number one driver at the company (definitely true he was great)! Also James could not stop cracking jokes made it a lot better than other tours!! Also James pointed out a miss spelled word at Lincoln Memorial, (here’s a hint it is near the word corresponding) 😉! 10/10 would do again to get more sunset pictures!!

    Me and my husband had an amazing time on the tour. Kirsten did a great job of explaining everything in detail along the way. We felt like we left with so much knowledge and would definitely highly recommend for anyone to take this tour!!!

    Great way to see DC without excessive walking. You can get off and on the bus based on you interest. It was the perfect decision for those who were not able to walk long distances. The price was fair as well. The children in our party were thrilled by the top open part of the bus.

    Dr Ed Cook was our tour guide. He was very informative and extremely patient and offered to take our pictures which was awesome and very nice! The evening weather was just perfect, not too cold or too hot, and seeing things at night was thrilling and so different than during the day. I would highly recommend this tour. It was a full two hours from beginning to end. Wonderful experience!!! Thank you Dr. Cook!

    I cannot express how fabulous this tour was. Our guide Nick, and Driver Ms Sylvia were too notch. We were there during Cherry Blossom Festival and it was so packed full of people but they got us in and around all the monuments with ease. Even when traffic was a huge obstacle, they were able to make seamless transitions from on place to the next. Nick had interesting information to share, above, and beyond the typical tour guide information. He, and Miss Sylvia were super friendly, cheerful, and courteous throughout the entire day. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to see the major monuments within the capital, it was well worth the money. thank you again Nick and Ms Sylvia, my husband and I, and our three children had a blast!

    The best way to start our visit to Washington DC! Our tour guide, Sebastian, was very knowledgeable and fun to be around. We had the leeway at each stop to take our time and explore. Would highly recommend!

    I am from DC and this tour allowed me to see things I never knew about. Erin was fun and informative, highlighting the things that makes Georgetown special. There was also interesting people in my tour group. It was worth every penny. 5 stars!!

    Dion was our tour guide on this excursion and what a phenomenal person he is. His knowledge is immense and he made the day out extremely interesting for all of us. It was my birthday and I chose to go on this trip as my birthday treat and I am so glad that I did, it was the perfect day out, we also had amazing weather and Mount Vernon if definitely worthy of a visit. If there was a downside it was that we did not get to stop in Alexandria or visit the river front of Alexandria on our way pass.

    I've been to DC many times and Wes taught me many things on our wonderful night tour. I'm not normally one to do tours but I highly recommend this tour and Wes.

    Our hop on hop off trolley tour 3/2024 was great. Sarge and others did a great job narrating all the interesting sites. I rated it a 4 because of pouring rain and cold. I suggest in bad weather to NOT get off the Trolley, because waiting 30 min for it to come back is too long!

    This was a good overview of the sites in DC. It was fun to bike around and see everything without too much walking for our kids. They enjoyed biking. It’s not very informative as a tour, but you do get to all the sites and get to see everything. Our tour was a group of around 15 people biking together.

    Derrick was a knowledgeable and fascinating guide. It was evident that Arlington Cemetary is near and dear to his heart. Many thanks!
