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

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!

Having a driver is a great way to cover alot of ground in the very large national mall. Our driver was friendly, efficient, and the ride was comfortable on a hot summer day.

The tour guide had a lot of nowledge not only of the places we visited but also about the history of the USA, with a very critical point of view.
He was very attentive too.

Our driver was excellent. I'm not sure of the spelling, but his name was Aga. He was so knowledgeable. I highly recommend using victor on your first day. We booked a 9:00, 4 hour tour, so that we could get a idea of locations of places we planned to visit the following days. Since parking is impossible it was so wonderful to be dropped off at the memorials and have a car waiting to take us to our next location. Aga would give us instructions before letting us, by telling us direction to go and everything to see at the site. He would point out buildings of interest that would would never have known we were passing, if we didn't have a guide. Our young grandson dropped his watch phone and our daughter called it and it was left at a gift shop for us. Aga drove us back to get the phone. He really was exceptional. He arrived before 9 and called to tell us he had arrived, he would be waiting for us whenever we were ready. I had a list of sights we wished to see and he added some sights he felt we should not miss in Washington. This was a great experience and I highly recommend this service.

Our tour was awesome! The tour guide was the best! He drove us by every Smithsonian giving information about each. We were able to stop and visit monuments, memorials, the Capital and Whitehouse. All 10 of our family members thoroughly enjoyed the tour and the tour guide. I can't remember his name.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2017

We spent Memorial Day weekend in DC along with our 10 year old grandson. We wanted him to see everything possible for his first visit there. We booked the customized tour and I could not be happier! Our driver / guide was Troy. He did an excellent job!

We make a list of places we wanted to see, especially the monuments. He worked it out that we also saw Arlington, the Pentagon, and several other places. He gave us commentary and facts that made the sights very interesting for us all.

I would highly recommend this tour and would tour with Troy!

Abdul was the consummate professional and made our day completely special. He was knowledgable and passionate about U.S. history and it clearly showed as he brought history to life. He was also patient, considerate and generous with us me and my 6 year old son in accommodating our specific requests.
