The Gems of Washington DC Tour
, Sep 2021
Perspective of locations around the National Mall. Objective insights about people and places in DC. We could take the tour many times and still not learn all of what the guide would have to share.
Waste of Money
, Sep 2021
Don’t waste your money. Basically he acts like a uber driver and you definitely can save more money by ordering an uber instead

For the past 35 years we never received a review similar to yours. I was talking non stop about Washington DC Memorials, Museums, landmarks, Federal agencies National and International organizations. We stopped at 8 memorials as listed in the program: we stopped at the US Captiol for 15 minutes. We stopped at the north front of the White House for 20 minutes. We stopped at Franklin Roosevelt memorial and Martin Luther King memorial for 30 minutes. We stopped at Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam memorial and Korean War memorial for 45 minutes. We drove by over a hundred of sites and talked about all of them and gave more information about Washington DC in general that I learned through varieties of academic sources through my 40 years of academic (MBA and Ph.D.) and professional career. Other customers will respond to your review. I was your tour guide/driver during this 4 hours tour: Dr Ali Zohery, Ph.D. Founder, Owner of Zohery Tours and professional licensed tour guide of Washington DC since 1988.
Wonderful time!

Excellent customer service! The driver was easy to understand, very friendly and funny. I would recommend this tour to anyone looking to cover all the main locations in 3-4 hours.
DC tour
, Sep 2021
Great tour guide! Very informative and polite. Went above and beyond and even took us to places that weren’t listed on the tour (because we specifically wanted to see them). Ali is a jack of all trades and an intelligent business man who strives to give his customers the best possible experience. Will definitely be coming back!
Wonderful experience very...

Wonderful experience very nice, lots of information. Thank you very much doctor Ali for the wonderful tour.
Great tour for families
, Aug 2021
Very thorough tour. Great for families with kids as you get to see everything not having to walk to all of the different monuments. Many stops along the way with plenty of time to enjoy the monuments. Tour guide was very knowledgeable. Definitely recommend this one!
Great Tour for First Time City Goers
, Aug 2021
Comfortable bus/enjoyed the AC, especially on a hot day! Tour guide informative; great way to explore DC especially for first timers. Tour gave a good overview of the city and important monuments/buildings. Tour guide kept to schedule and there were two times during the day that bathrooms/food were available.
Not for Us
, Aug 2021
Tour guide attempted to quickly say something about EVERY building driven by which made it hard to follow. Also, some basic misinformation was given as fact (1. The myth about how someone died based on how the horse is standing; 2. Andrew Jackson died in battle). And all the commentary about staying at the luxury Trump hotel and getting a discount really didn’t “fit.”
icon Response from Host , Aug 2021
This tour is a combination of driving by over a hundred of sites and memorials and getting off and visit 8 memorials. The building that Trump Hotel in was one of the sites that I talked about as I DROVE BY IT. Horse statue stand symbolizes the life ending of the riders, please read the following: The Horse Statue Symbolism… Fact Or Myth? Gettysburg Banner If you have visited Gettysburg National Park, you’ve seen at least one of the 1,328 monuments, markers, and memorials that are on display across the historic battlefield. You may have even seen one of them any statues of generals mounted on horseback. But have you heard the urban legend of the horse statue hoof symbolism? What is the horse statue myth? According to the urban legend, if the statue shows the horse posed with both front hooves up in the air, the rider died in battle. If the horse is posed with one front leg up, it means the rider was wounded in battle or died of battle wounds. And if all four hooves are on the ground, the rider died from causes outside of battle. So is there any truth to the myth? While there are plenty of statues that follow the “rule” of the hoof positions, particularly with statues commemorating Gettysburg soldiers, there are at least nine instances where the rule does not hold for Gettysburg statues. Subsequently, most historians do not believe the myth. “To the best of anyone’s knowledge, the position and pose of the statue do not signify anything,” said Frances Pollard, a curator at the Virginia Historical Society. Regardless of whether or not the hooves of their battle horses symbolize anything, Gettysburg National Battlefield Park is still one of the most popular stops for student groups touring the Historic East Coast. Student groups typically spend a whole morning or afternoon exploring the museum, viewing the Cyclorama painting, and touring the battlefield.
