I enjoyed the two (2) day tours and both drivers were courteous, humorous and informative. They were good drivers in navigating through the DC traffic.

I was disappointed that we were not to contacted in advance that the guided tour of dc was cancelled due to lack of numbers. I initially accepted this but when we met other people in the same situation and were told of differing minimum numbers needed for the tour to go ahead I felt a bit deceived. It is what it is and we mad use of the big bus tour as a substitute. Otherwise 5 stars !
