Overview
Avoid the stress of renting a car and navigating on your own on this bus tour of Washington DC. A guide provides entertaining historical context, as you pass more than 50 of the city’s iconic landmarks, including the White House, Capitol Building, Lincoln Memorial, and National Mall. Unlike most city bus tours, a small group size ensures you have the guide's full attention for questions and comments.

Highlights
  • Avoid miles of walking: See more than 50 DC landmarks in a few hours
  • Learn as you go: A guide provides background on each point of interest
  • Stop for photos at iconic landmarks, including the White House
  • Small group size ensures a personalized tour and time for questions
What to Expect
Meet the tour guide in downtown Washington. Rather than walking notoriously long distances between each landmark, experience DC from the comfort of a tour bus. Enjoy live commentary and historical background, as you pass more than 50 points of interest—more than you could ever see in one day on foot. The guide points out landmarks that are easy to miss if exploring alone, including the unmarked FBI building and the President’s Guest House. Over the course of the day, stop for photos at DC’s most iconic locations, including the White House, Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial, and Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial. Your tour ends at the original point of departure.

This tour was wonderful. Ali, our trip guide, was very knowledgable and polite. He arrived on time and ended on time. My only suggestion would be to wear comfortable walking shoes. I knew we were touring but didnt realize how much walking we would be doing. I definitely got a

Worst tour i have ever taken. The tour is half an hour late without noticing. The driver picked up some random people along the way just for some extra cash. Super unorganized! The tour guide is very hard to follow

Responded Aug. 27, 2020
This tour was not private for you. I’m Dr Zohery; the owner of the company. I care about the quality of my tours for the past 33 years in business. Your statement “Super Unorganized” is a SUPER LIE. Please read other customers comments about my tour at the same time: Viator review: Half-Day Grand Tour of Washington DC “Dr Zorery was a great tour guide! His knowledge of the area was so helpful for our group. I would highly recommend the 1/2 day tour for individuals visiting the DC area.” Please be fair

I can only reiterate what others have said, Dr Ali speaks too fast and crams way too much into the presentation. He is obviously very knowledgable about Washington DC, but the machine-gun delivery of buildings, monuments and statues fails to creative a narrative. If you are a
