Very expensive way to get around Washington. Better than walking but if you are expecting an educational and thoughtful tour, this is not it. Basically this is akin to Hop On ... Hop Off.

This was an excellent tour with Tyrone, he shared many golden nuggets of information on several of the details for each monument. Our driver Curtis was a great driver very safe and professional!

Good selection of monuments to visit and see. We did the six hour version, but after finishing it, would have rather only done the three hour. For us, our time would been better spent visiting a museum or two rather than the afternoon portion. Our...More
