The tour started fine but on our way to the Korean, Vietnam, Lincoln Memorials the driver encounter a road closed and decide to skip all 3 memorials even though there was access for people to walk to the memorials all he had to do was park a little away like everybody else did but he was in such a rush to finish the tour that decide to skip that stop, the next stop was the lunch stop but he that one too. the tour was suppose to last 5 hours but instead only last it 2 hours. he drop the people on the tour off at Arlington Cemetery and he left. do not recommend this tour to anybody. save your money stay away from this tour
DO NOT TAKE THIS TOUR!!! This tour was not advertised correctly. It is entitled Day Tour of Arlington Virginia and we started off with a tour of DC US Capitol, White House, etc.. The tour also stated there was a stop at the Pentagon mall and at the Pentagon 9/11 memorial, and we did not go there at all. It was also 2 different tours. We had a tour bus in the morning for the DC tour and then got dropped off at Arlington Cemetery for that tour. It was horrible and I specifically chose this tour for stop at the Pentagon 9/11 memorial!
So disapointed. Our guide was very friendly but did not give us the full tour. We stopped at the Air Force and Marine memorials but did not go by any of the others. Despite our asking, he did not take us to the Pentagon City mall for lunch. We were dropped off at Arlington which was great but was not out there to pick us up in the rain at the agreed on time and did not come for 20 minutes after we called.
Arlington National Cemetery and the Kennedy Memorial were nice. Also enjoyed the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the changing of the guard. Robert E. Lee's house has some great views you can see the Washington Monument and DC from there breathtaking scenery. Took a lot of pictures and videos at the cemetery and Lee's home. It's a must to do thing if you're in DC or Virginia.
We saw the Navy and Air Force memorials, then went on to see Arlington National Cemetery. Be certain to wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to do a lot of walking. There are several buses to help get you around, but lots of walking is still required. Bring snacks and something to drink. Arlington Cemetery is a must see for all patriots and you can't leave there without feeling a debt of gratitude to our military.
This tour was not at all what we expected! We didn't even stop at Pentagon Mall for lunch! Let alone stop to pay our respects at the Pentagon Memorial! We only saw it from the car window - highly disappointed.
We were taken around DC to see monuments, which wasn't at all what we expected due to the title of the tour, but it was nice to see some of those things. Our final destination was Arlington Cemetery, which was great because we went on the actual Arlington Cemetery trolley around the park, not our travel guide. I would not recommend this tour to anyone, I would suggest they walk around or rent a bike and see the National Mall to see all the landmarks, memorials and monuments. Go and see Arlington Cemetery separately. This honestly was the worse decision I made on booking a tour.
This tour was amazing!
The tour was wonderful. Tunde did an amazing job of driving and sharing lots of facts and history with us. Arlington was incredible. The Changing of the Guards was very moving. Arlington National Cemetery is a must do on everyone's list.
