    Claudia I think her name is...very pleasant and knowledgeable.
    Have recommended trip already to others.

  • This is an excellent tour. Originally I did this in June 2015 but never got round to posting a review. However, I did enjoy the tour enough to book it again which I did last month. The second tour was even better as the operator has improved the itinerary. The first time we went it included a stop at Madame Tussaud's which is fine except nobody goes DC to visit Madame Tussauds! This has now been replaced by a stop at Arlington cemetery and JFK's grave which is a massive improvement. The tour is well run and both guides were absolutely fantastic. On the most recent trip we were disappointed as the tour guide said there would be a cordon around the White House due to the there being a function there. However, this worked out better as the first time we visited the White House it was impossible to get nice pictures as it was too crowded but the small cordon they had around the perimeter actually allowed us to take much better photos of this iconic building.

  • Coming from Hawaii with only a sort time in New York we wanted a our that could cover the highlights of New York. We found that with Viator. We are planning another trip and plan to use Viator again for that city. I recommend Viator for their professionalism and organized tours.
