Had a great tour with Viator! Our guide, Brenda, was very welcoming and knowledgeable. We were able to see so much more of the city than we had planned by taking this tour. I highly recommend the Arlington Cemetery portion as it gave us quiet time in the cemetery before the general public entered.

The tour guide for Arlington was great. Very informative and personable. Id give her five stars. However, the guide for the National Monument tour was terrible. She either sat in the bus or on a bench a let us fend for ourselves at each monument. We could of done the tour without her. I will never book a tour through Viator again.

Tour guide was very nice and pleasant. I am Diabetic. I would liked to have known in advance that it would be close to 7 hrs before we ate lunch. We met at 7:45 am and didn't sit to eat until 2:15 pm. Generally lunch is at 12:00 noon. Had I known I would have taken a good solid snack with me

Our tour guide, Chris was fantastic. The only problem we had was being misled about the tour through Arlington Cemetery. We voiced our concern to Chris when we met at the very beginning when he informed us it was a 2-hour walking tour. There were 6 senior citizens for this part of the tour. Nowhere is it mentioned that the tour through Arlington would be all walking. Several of us had trouble with all of the walking. Especially my wife as she has bad knees. If we had known ahead of time we would have opted to use a tram ride for 14 to get through the cemetery. As it was, this slowed everyone down making us late to the bus. The rest of the tour was absolutely fabulous.

Tour guide was amazing. Very knowledge. The tour however needs improvement. We were supposed to get an hour lunch around lunch time but ended up getting 20-25min to grab something and board a boat. We literally had to eat on the boat. Felt like it could have been planned better.

Great trip! We had an amazing, knowledgeable tour guide, Dwayne that made the tour 5 Stars. The buses were clean and comfortable. We were able to experience the changing of the guards, which was an awesome way to start off the tour. We were able to go to every monument, memorial, and even had a boat tour on the Potomac. I definitely recommend this tour. Booking through was easy, quick, and seamless.
