DC at night
, Oct 2020
Our tour guide was knowledgeable and took us to places that my friends who actually lived in DC had never even seen before. He was patient especially with all the pictures we were taking. Seeing DC at night was definitely a good decision.

Our tour was wonderful! Abdul was our tour guide and was EXTREMELY knowledgeable about DC. We would recommend this tour to anyone looking for a private tour and looking to learn a ton of history and fun facts about DC. Thanks so much!

This tour was excellent and the best part of it was the driver, Frank. He was very knowledgeable and professional. We say everything we wanted to see on this tour and it was at our pace.

Driver was late for pick up. Waste of money. DC is very easy to get around and navigate. Use Uber and save your money.

We had a great tour guide, Frank, who was knowledgeable, courteous, fun and just a great all around guy. He drove an amazing van, which was so comfortable for all 8 of us. Amazing tour and we covered so many of the sights in Washington DC...Highly recommend Viator and ask for Frank!

This is an absolute must especially if you have limited time in the city. Our driver was Frank and he did a wonderful job. He was able to help us see the most with our time. He shared history and info about the area. He did not accompany out of the van at the stops but gave us the info before the stops and told us what to look for. This was a wonderful time spent

I would not recommend this tour at all. The driver picked us up slightly late. I am OK with this understanding traffic. However, when I continually asked for timing to end the trip, I was never given a clear answer and I was given the impression that it was not a big deal. However, the company called me at the end of the trip and advised me that I owed an additional 100 as I went over time. You can imagine my shock on receiving a phone call from a person I don't even know demanding my credit card. I asked them if they could forward it to Viator, and he insisted he could not. If the driver had been clear with me on timing, I would not have accepted the drop off at the hotel and taken a taxi or uber back for much, much cheaper. There are a number of other reasons I would not recommend the trip. If you are thinking of taking this trip, DO NOT. I should note that I travel extensively and have used Viator and Trip Advisor for tours many times in the past. This is the first time I strongly advise people not to take the tour. The tour company is highly unprofessional.

The driver was extremely professional and knowledgeable. Our driver was very personable and impeccably dressed. His manners and mannerisms were top notch! He accommodated our every request, stopping to take photos and pointing out information on areas of interest. As a handicapped individual, I highly recommend this type of tour. I was able to view all the monuments, he used my handicapped parking permit, which allowed for him to park closer, and allowed me less walking, to be able to visit the monuments close up, rather than at a distance. The vehicle was immaculately clean. We were provided bottled water. We never felt pressured, regarding the amount of time spent at any given stop. My husband and I highly recommend this type of tour, regardless of age or mobility. It is a very up close and personal type of tour, to our specific areas of interest. We had two personal phone calls from the scheduler, to be sure that we were able to choose our specific preferences for the tour, and any that were not listed. It was like spending a day with an old friend. Highly recommend this type of tour! Thank you for your excellent service!
