Fabulous trip. Our guide Tyrone and driver Chris couldn’t have done any more. They were fantastic and had great fun too. What a great way to see the city and learn so much history as well. This trip is a must for first timers or whether you have been before. Highly recommend. First class!

Tyrone (guide) & Chris (driver) are the BEST!! Friendly, informative & super patient! Especially since we had a majority of seniors, some with mobility challenges. Lots of photo opportunities with advance notice of upcoming sights. Tyrone’s humour kept us throughly entertained throughout the trip! Definitely recommended if you are looking for a quick day tour, with stops covering all major sights. Thank you for a very memorable time!

An amazing day touring Washington with our tour guide Tyrone and a really lovely bus driver too! This is truly a full day tour as you see so many city sights that you might not have had the time to walk between. A must for a first trip to DC if possible!
