I recommend this tour! Just am back from this tour. I gave 5 stars for the itinerary as I loved the way they planned the trip from Day 1 to Day 4. It appeared to be hectic but was worth spending. It was more than 6 years time that I had been on some tour and this tour was awesome giving me the much desired break, though I did not expect so much. The memorials, the museums and monuments were actually fading from memory, but this time I had a full visit and know the entire history that I will not forget.

the time at Woodbury Common Premium Outlets was incredibly boring and lazy. There was just outlet shopping, what about the other people to whom the outlet shopping doesn’t interest? the whole family of mine took a memorable photo with backdrops of White House. Funny fact, that they don’t cost for that. Air & Space Center, Inner-Harbor, and the DC Cherry Blossoms were wonderful!! Our lodging was luxurious and well appointed. Thank You!

Not going to say that the tour came right at our demands, nonetheless it is appreciable that they did what they say. Washington DC was the right choice to spend a vacation at, I am happy that we saw the best of the city, from that river boating for sightseeing to the memorials. All of them were lovely!

I was not disappointed with the tour. The tour was good, so were the driver and the guide. They took good care of us in the entire site seeing places and ensured all the passengers visited each place and came back to the bus perfectly. They did not ignore any of the passengers and did not also pay more attention to any of the few couples or group. They stayed professional. The reason for 3 stars is that our hotel that was given for accommodation was clean, nice and new. But we never had a microwave in our room as suggested.
