We loved this trip. We didn't mind the long drive after stolling alot of miles in the city. We could rest a little. The bus took us to all the important highlights of DC and guided us all the way! We even had some free time. You don't have much time at all stops but for us, young people who just wanted to have a view, this was amazing. We spent 1,5H in the air and space museum! We loved the fact that we didn't have to walk to much because the bus took us to all the places. The bus was nice and the guide, Marco, very good! Greetings from Belgium! We highly recommend this trip.
Our host showed us a lot in a short time and she was very informative. It was a history lesson on important things I’d forgotten. My teen loved it!
Group of 4 took the trip and we all agreed it was an impressive day out. Yes, whilst tiring because of the 4 hours travel each way, it was definitely worth it. Coach was very comfortable, clean and had WIFI. Our guide Jorge was really knowledgeable and answered all our questions. Driver was also excellent. Great way to see highlights of Washington whilst visiting New York. Bonus was it was a glorious sunny day. Thank you all for a wonderful tour!
Great day tour and well looked after by our guide. A really good way to see the highlights of DC if you have limited time!
An interesting day out from New York. Surprised how small the White House was. Overall a very full day and we saw all the major sights
Very informative tour, jampacked with lots of activities and sights, a good way to visit the attractions if you don't have the luxury of time. Our tour guide Jorge was very helpful, and he did a marvelous job introducing us to the main sights. This tour was bilingual. We brought sandwiches with us, and bought our drinks in takeaway cups from the shops at the stop, so we weren't pressed for time when it came to lunch breaks or snacks. We had plenty of time to enjoy the museums instead. Our bus ran into trouble at the end of the tour, that added to another 30 minutes of being on the road, but our driver took us back to New York safely. All the passengers in the bus arrived on time at the end of each stop, so we had a very awesome day.
Great tour, the bus was on time and comfortable therefore we visited and took pictures of so many famous monuments
We've had a fabulous day with our really knowlegable tourguide Estella.... we saw a lot, laughed a lot and learned even more...
Great day trip to DC. Well coordinated so we could cover a lot of ground. Tour guide had difficulty with the PA system on the bus so wasn't able to explain much during the ride anyhow a good one.
Traveling with my daughter all I can say is that the experience was amazing, we used viator 4 years ago and was very pleased with the trips we booked then in Newyork city. From being picked up at 6.15 on a snowy morning to being dropped off at 9.30 everything was perfect,our guide was a lady I can't pronounce her name but she was fantastic and made us all laugh. Our driver was careful on what must have been very slippy roads, Washington is a must for anyone thinking about it.Dont hesitate.
very good tour lots off famous landmarks but unless you spoke Spanish tour guide hardly spoke to you
Overall it was very good experience, saw most of the places we wanted to and good value for money
We enjoyed the tour very much, it was very well organised and very informative! Thank you very much!
Although really looking forward to this tour I was a little concerned with the 15hr duration. I didn't need to be as the day went quite quickly and very smoothly. The bus trip was fine and we had a nice little stop for food around half way. Our guide was a lovely lady who was very entertaining. We had the perfect weather although in Winter and Washington did not disappoint. Arlington cemetery was very moving and it was great to see the White House etc. We went to the Indian museum which was OK but the food was terrible so try and avoid eating here. The space museum was very interesting and worth a visit. Entry was free which was very nice. If you intend to stay in New York this tour is a must as you have Times Square etc. then the luxury of seeing the capital.
Enjoyed the tour and saw the sights of Washington- Laura was an excellent guide and very helpful. Was rather nervous about being late and missing the bus ! But no-one was late as we were reminded at every stop but timing given was clear and the trip well organised. George the driver did a great job considering the drive back was torrential rain.
You can charge your phone on the coach but need an American adapter to plug in. WiFi was available on the coach also.
Excellent tourist guide! the experience was outstanding with him. All was done with precise time management! All was great and we enjoyed every second.
very punctual and well organized. The departing point in NYC was central 46th St which was easy to find instead of Chinatown
The tour touched the points that I really wanted to see.
Very informative tour, taken to some amazing places, had a great guide Laura
