    Had an excellent day on this tour. Started at the Navy Memorial, then loads of epic sites through the day. We were in a small coach, approx 18 of us. Guided by Josh Keanu Reeves and driven by sounds like Rohell. Loads of sites and memorials visited. Josh was really funny with loads of awful jokes and pop quiz questions through the day. This is a bit of a hop on hop off with being driven to an area then walking between the sites with Josh talking about the history and symbolism of the memorials. Total walking distance was approx 3 miles spread throughout the day. Nice gentle pace with Josh always waiting for everyone. The river boat ride around lunchtime was a nice interlude for a bite and a drink. This is the same tour as the more expensive Capitol Building and Archives Tour saves about 50 without express entry. Both are free but may have a queue. We visited the Archives straight after and the queue was 15 mins to get in and another 15 inside. Definitely recommend this tour.

    First, our tour guide, Nick, was the best! He was very knowledgable and funny. The bus was in no way a deluxe motorcoach as described, but it was fine.Being described as a deluxe motorcoach, I thought it would have a bathroom. It did not. They had free bottled water, which was a nice touch to the trip. The cruise was only nice because we got a break from walking. Otherwise, didn't add anything to the experience. You could not hear the prerecorded message, nothing great to look at, and they crammed as many people as they could on the boat. Nick made up for the cruise.

    Josh was our tour guide and he was awesome. My dad and I found that this was a great way to start our vacation and to see all the monuments. It was great to hear all the stories of the places people went and to be able to talk to Josh about places to visit, it helped us lay out the rest of our trip around Washington DC including adding in the US Capital Tour and the Library of Congress. Josh was great about answering any questions we had, and he had great games and facts to pass the time between stops. Would definitely do the tour again.
