Nick was our tour guide. He was fantastic! I am so glad we booked this tour! We got to see all of the major monuments and sites without having to run ourselves ragged. He was extremely knowledgeable in the history of the city. We also got to do the boat tour as well. It was very refreshing and another great view of the city.

In the time of uncertainty of COVID-19 the tour was a success. Having visited DC in the past and been a part of other type of transportation, this was by far the best. The driver was phenomenal. Chris the guide was knowledgeable and funny. I highly recommend the use of this company for your sight of DC.

Chris was a fantastic history story teller. He told us additional information about each place that unless you went on this tour one would of never known about. Could of used about 5 to 10 minutes more at some monuments like Lincoln and the WWII memorials.
