We thoroughly enjoyed our Best of DC tour. Washington DC is a remarkable place. This tour was an all-day tour that was made even better because of our fantastic guide, Henry. He was knowledgeable,funny, and friendly to all. His insights that you won’t necessarily read in your average tour book were outstanding. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Ali, our fantastic driver. His navigation through the busy city was a part of the great day. My wife and I highly recommend USA Guided Tours. Make sure you ask for Henry.

Valerie was a terrific guide for the tour, a wealth of information. Wasn't to fond of the MLK memorial, the FDR Memorial would have been better. And doing the WW2 Memorial T the end would be nicer so it was darker and the lighting is phenomenal at that memorial.

Henry was our tour guide and Ali was our driver. Both were very professional and personable. Henry was very knowledgable about all things DC. I learned a lot from his tour about DC today and will recommend him and your company to all. Henry is also very patriotic and partial to the Veteran's memorials. I was truly impressed with him. Thank you very much, Doug Leininger, Chippewa Falls, WI. US Army Veteran.

This is a great tour company! I believe it is a fairly young company. Our guide Nick was very, very knowledgeable and passionate about American history. He was able to answer all the questions we had. His attention to detailed information made our trip fly by as we toured a full day and visited a great many memorials, the capitol and a Potomac River trip! He was very entertaining and personable as well.He spoke clearly and loud enough for all to hear. The smaller size of the buses made the DC traffic manageable and our driver, Tony was able to get us trough traffic efficiently. The smaller bus size also controlled the number of people in our group so it wasn't too large.
