We had the most fantastic day trip to Washington DC with Scott. Right from pick up at our hotel at 7am through to drop off back at the hotel late into the night we enjoyed every second of it. Scott was really lovely and knowledgable and really went above and beyond to make sure I was taken care of (in my wheelchair) and that my Grandson had a memorable 18th Birthday present. The stop off in Baltimore on the way back for dinner just added to the whole day. I can’t praise the trip and Scott enough.
The tour was amazing and we covered a lot of awesome sights. Scott was an amazing guide and really went out of his way to accomodate us
No regrets in getting this tour. Our car was comfortable and very clean. Scott is such a nice person and very helpful with everything. my 4 year old daughter had a great time the whole trip. We all had a wonderful time in Washington.
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
I would highly recommend this trip. Scott was brillant. We where a family of 5 from age 11 to 49 he kept all of us very interested in both his knowledge and what we visited. We visited on voting day excellent day.
We had a wonderful experience. Our driver, Scott was totally fantastic- very knowledgable, very friendly and an excellent driver. We were a family of 6 mostly adult children. I highly recommend this trip- so much better than being in a generic big bus group. Thankyou so much Scott and Viator
I took this tour with my parents, aunt and 4 yr old son . Scott the guide was very informative, willing, accommodating and pleasant
We couldn't have asked for a better driver and guide.
The vehicle was comfortable and he drove very safe. He was also patient with my 3 yr old son who hot restless 3/4 way on the trip.
The tour to Washington was also very nice
I highly recommend this tour and guide
What an amazing day! Being picked up from our hotel and driven to all the best spots was fantastic but, when it was clear my daughter was interested in American politics, Scott went out of his way to personalise the trip and make it extra special! Scott was a perfect guide, so full of knowledge but also, so personable with adult and child alike. He made the trip, even taking the time to drop off my daughter's sunglasses she had left, at our hotel the next day. The history and architecture of Washington was astounding, and despite it being hot, we were able to see and do so much in only one day! Getting to watch the Senate debate and then vote meant we felt we got to see not only the past but also, the present and happening face of Washington. Dinner at a great Italian in Baltimore rounded off the trip and then the sleepy ride home to our hotel. Washington was amazing, Scott was an asset on this trip, I doubt any other guide could have come half as close. Go on this trip with Scott!
A great way to go about Washington DC in a day's trip, albeit a tiring long day, from 7 in the morning till midnight upon return. A good trip to see everything in DC. The seafood place at Baltimore on the return trip was a pleasant bonus. Overall an excellent trip conducted by a most professional and friendly tour guide.
What a wonderful day in DC. Scott was extremely patient with my 80 year old parents for this day trip from New York. Since my parents had never been to DC, I wanted them to see it all. Somehow we did, in just one day!
