  • This tour comes highly recommended to anyone young and old. Scott was very informative and amazed us with his knowledge. Scott gave us insights into American history and politics that was easy to understand as well as being very interesting. It was a pleasure to have a personal guide who could work around us and who was very patient whilst we took our many photos. The transport was very spacious and comfortable especially after a long day of sightseeing, well worth paying the extra cost. I would definitely be booking another of Scott's tours should we Travel in the area again, would also definitely be including Washington DC. Thank You!

  • The tour was amazing. Scott our guide was very knowledgable and overall a top guy. Had a really good if not long day. Thanks to Scott for the icing on the cake.

  • I would recommend this tour to anyone! We had some specific landmarks we wanted to include and Scott was flexible with his time and amazed us with his knowledge. We wanted to start a little earlier than usual and he was happy to oblige. The transport was exceptional, immaculate and spacious. Scott gave us insights into American history and politics so that we would better understand what we would be viewing that day. He was more than happy to stop when we needed and we never felt like we had to rush, it was a pleasure to have a personal guide who could work around us. It was well worth paying the extra cost to have the convenience rather than pay less for a cramped and rushed bus ride that had no flexibility. We found the tour to be very informative and Scott included some extra sights that we were so glad we got to see. I would definitely be booking another of Scott's tours should I ever travel back to the area. And i would definitely be including Washington DC on any future holiday. Thank You!!

  • Scott Was great !
    He is the best tour guide i have ever work with, He was so patient with us during the trip, as we were a family of 5 with three kids.
    As he was so human when he changed the tour program to fit us to visit the Muslim center at DC to pray, also he changed the rout to let my son use a toilet in a nearby city while we were heading to DC.

    He drove so safely and gave me a lot of information about American history.

    if you are a family and do not have enough time to visit DC , i really highly recommend to take this tour as you will visit the best attraction in DC and get back to NY in the same day.

    But be sure that your guide is Scott.....

  • Impressive to visit Congress Library, Capital Hill, and many States buildings.......our tour guide, Scott, is knowledgeable and accommodating with our family travel and kids demand.....excellent tour and is a must to learn about US history and government!!

  • Excellent Guide Scott!
    Very informative and he tailored the tour to our liking. Appreciate his professionalism.

  • Scott was a great guide.He was always there but not too 'pushy'.
    He drove carefully in dreadful rain conditions on the way the Washington.
    We thoroughly enjoyed the whole day and it was great to have a meal in Baltimore on the way back.
    I feel sure that the tour was probably the best way to see the sights in Washington if you have limited time.

  • It's a dive into the early american history, great tour. It's amazing to walk into the Capitol, Lincoln Memorial and Martin Luther King Jr Monument. Another must see is the changing of guards in Arlington Cemetery.

  • Fantastic tour with Scott. It was so worth doing this trip ...comfortable drive down to Washington .We visited all the places of interest and we weren't rushed, Scott was so knowledgeable and we all learnt so much.Great stop for dinner in Baltimore on the way back to New York. The day was a big highlight of our visit to the USA. Thank you Scott from Jo David Ellie Alf And Oscar Brown it was a pleasure.

  • Highly recommend, don't hesitate just book, Scott was fantastic. He tailored the trip to the interests of our family of five, was very knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Thank you Scott for making our trip to Washington a great and memorable experience. The Stephensons
