Definitely do this day trip
Vicki_R, Apr 2024
This is a MUST do trip in my opinion…. We got to see the White House, Capitol Hill, the Lincoln memorial (just amazing) the mall, M L king memorial, Washington memorial, jfk’s grave and other places. Allen knew so much and could answer any questions. We took our 9 year old and she loved it too. Pack chargers for your phones/devices as it’s a 4 hour trip but the buses have WiFi and charging points at every seat.

NYC-DC day tour
RamanLal_P, Apr 2024
14 hour day trip, good value for your money's worth.....enjoyed it very much. Loved seeing all the farm fields, and all the important landmarks in DC
100% recommend it
Laura_M, Apr 2024
Absolutely brilliant day would 100% reccomend to do it. Easy to book, easy pickup/drop off point. Allan our tour guide was fantastic, friendly, helpful and boy does he know his history. We found out sooo much more than we would ever have if we had just done the sights ourselves. He has great stories and also some good reccos for things to do and places to eat. It’s an early start and a long day but so worth it especially as you see so much. Thank you for a brilliant day out.
Great guide
Alan_S, Apr 2024
Great guide and all well organized. Bus was clean. Stops properly done. Guide was taking care of timing, lunch, restroom plan.
Christine_G, Apr 2024
Ed was a terrific, informative tour guide. The trip was very well planned, we got to see all the major sites of interest in one day. I would highly recommend it! The only minor hitch was that a few guests on our tour brought along infants and toddlers, who (of course) were disruptive on the long bus ride. It would be great if the company would consider limiting this tour to adults and older children, as due to the long day of travel it is clearly unsuitable for small children.
The tour guide was...
Folios_Z, Mar 2024
The tour guide was EXCELLENT!!! He had a beautiful way to share so many knowledge in 2 languages , that we didn't get bored not even for a minute. Also he had a great personality that made it even better! The drivers were friendly and careful! Unfortunately, the bus itself, was at the worst possible condition...the roof top was getting rain water from many places and the air system transfer was broken.

Politically overreached and factually wrong about current topics
Lucas_S, Mar 2024
Good excursion to do if you want to visit DC conveniently. However, the tour guide was highly opinionated and shared some inexpiably unfactual comments such as "Sam Houston was murdered in the Alamo along with everyone else" (Sam Houston wasn't even at the Alamo that day, and there were survivors) or "Trump was photographed here with a bible after the contesting of the election" (it was after the George was saFloyd rioting/looting) The guide seemed knowledgeable but intentionally changed facts to convey his line of thinking, which is inappropriate for a tour, particularly when you are talking to people who may not have enough background on certain topics. In my experience during these types of tours, the more objective and less biased approach serves for a more enriched experience.
Peter_W, Mar 2024
The guide Allan was very friendly and so knowledgeable. We saw so much and would recommend this tour as being brilliant.
Great day out…
james_w, Feb 2024
Allan was a knowledgeable and entertaining guide and really gave us excellent insight in the subject
kevin_b, Feb 2024
Our rep was Allen... we went on the Washington trip... all I can say is... it was amazing! He was so knowledgeable... friendly and easy going. We thought we knew much of the history of the white house, Arlington etc but we learned so much! I can recommend this trip 100%. It's a 12 hour day, but filled with information. Excellent!!!! 20/20
