We totally enjoyed this Washington, DC Express Sightseeing tour yesterday. Out tour guide promised the three E's Entertainment. Enjoyment and Enlightenment and he provided all three of those for me and my daughter. We were in town for a business trip and only had a few hours free time. This trip fit that time line perfectly. My family has never been disappointed in a Viator tour.
