Tunde was amazing- we only wish we'd gotten a photo with him! We booked our whirlwind tour of the white house, monuments, and memorials to accommodate grandma but we all enjoyed having an animated, humorous, and gracious narrator and tour guide. Tunde picked us up at our hotel and whisked us from monument to monument always parking where the walk would be the shortest and pointing out the elevators and handicapped entrances, and bathrooms, which are not always obvious! He made a point at each destination to describe the highlights of the site and even the best camera angles and photo spots. He made the entire day stress- free and enjoyable. He really seems to love the city, is a long time resident, and his commentary was thoughtful, entertaining and refreshingly not political!. Usually touring DC is exhausting but Tunde and his super comfortable van just made it 100% easy and fun even for the less physically able. I would highly recommend.
Great tour, very clean and comfortable van! It was super hot and so we finished slightly ahead of schedule. Tunde was very knowledgeable and patient throughout the trip!
As I always do when in a new city, we go on a city tour...since there is 8 of us in the family, we ARE the tour usually and therefore take the private tours. To all of you wondering, it is 100 worth your while to go the private tour route....one gets to ask questions, especially of things that is of interest to you! What an amazing tour. BUT,,,,Firstly, I have to apologise to our wonderful, wonderful guide, Dexter.....I decided tonight it is a good time to say thanks to all the Viator service providers who made our trips so much fun over the years, including Dexter. I am nearly 2 years late...sorry!! But just to make sure everybody knows just how great you were - it is never too late if something was so good! Thanks for taking our family around Washington ....and we had the privilege of having a guide with the most beautiful voice!! He even looked like Morgan Freeman...or maybe it is Mr Freeman looking like Dexter? You showed us around the highlights of DC, especially showing me where the Botanical Gardens was, was the highlight of our hours with him for me - I went back the next day to do the tour of the Botanical Gardens by and expert - we also took bicycles as per your recommendation and re-visited most of the sites you showed us in a fun way - thanks a million for the great time.
Great driver and great tour! A real private and personal experience with a lot of information.
We ended up being the only tourists on this tour and our driver Dexter did an amazing job sharing history and providing the tour we wanted. HE is amazing. Highly recommend this.
Our guide was great - gave us all the time we needed. He was very knowledgeable.
Fabulous tour. Guide very helpful and knowledgeable. Great way to see things that you choose, rather than having to go on a set trip. Warm in the car rather than on a bus. Weather was bitterly cold and guide was always waiting to pick you up at an agreed time. Would do this again.
Excellent! Driver/Guide was so knowledgeable and friendly. Would definitely recommend it and do it again.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about our tour with Dexter. He was interested in what we wanted to see and added so much information to every building and monument we saw. It felt like we were with a college professor who knew all the dates and facts about Washington D.C.. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone who loves the history of our nation.
A very wonderful time!!!! I would do it again in a second, well worth the money.
This was a great way to see DC. Dexter really knows his stuff and the details behind the details. The great part about the trip is that you can get out and walk around the items that you want and sit in the van and watch them go by for the other items. Dexter clearly communicated with us and even texted us tips on things to walk by when we were out walking around. I forgot to mention, he was always exactly where he said he would be and was easy to fine. I am going to schedule him again for my wife's girls weekend visit. Thanks Dexter!!
Dexter was awesome! He picked us up at our hotel, at the designated time as promised. He asked us what all we wanted to see in the 4 hour tour? After we gave him our list, we took off. He took us to everything we wanted to see, plus more! He had excellent knowledge and facts about all of the points of interest. This was well worth the money! We would recommend this for everyone that wants a great kick-off to see all of the attractions and high lights of DC.
Thank you Dexter!!!

I could not have asked for anyone better. Dexter had all the usual tourist spots ready but I started with a place he had not been Fort Ward. Dexter said he had not been there but would start there and we did. I picked several other places not on his regular tour and each time we immediately when there. He gave me all the time I wanted wherever we were and could not have been a better guide. I am a former History teacher and our conversations were probably deeper than most of his clients. He even asked my knowledge of the Korean War to compare with his own. I was sorry when our time was up because I not only saw everything I had wanted but made a friend in the process.
My wife and I took two of our grandchildren to Washington for a couple days. The four hour tour was perfect for us! Tour guide Dexter was fantastic! Full of historical knowledge about Washington and all the memorials. Very polite and respectful and allowed us as much time as we needed with the kids. We would highly recommend this tour, especially if you have a limited amount of time to spend in Washington. We could not have covered half the sites we were able to take in without the tour.
Brilliant, Dexter was the perfect guide/host. A trip enhanced but Dexter, his knowledge and great manner made this one of the highlights of our week in the USA . Nothing was too much bother.. would recommend him without hesitation
Our family's private four hour tour of Washington, DC was outstanding! Our guide, Dexter, who's lived in the DC area for the past 40 years, was professional and knowledgeable. We visited several monuments and memorials as well as Capitol Hill. We visited more sites during this tour than we'd seen on several previous visits to our nation's capital.
Our group consisted of 3 adults and 2 children age 10 and 9. From the moment Dexter picked us up at our hotel until he dropped us off we had a great time. It was a very rainy day but Dexter provided rain ponchos and unbrellas. He started by asking us what we wanted to see, then spent the 4 hours driving us around the city and visiting all the monuments while giving us a history of the city and stories behind each of the monuments. He walked with us on many of them and let us explore the others at our own pace. Because of the rain it was not busy so we took our time and thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Dexter was very knowledgeable and a wonderful guide. It was a great way to tour the city and very reasonably priced.
