"Best of Washington day trip"

Guided Tour to most of all highlights in Washington DC. I can recommend the tour absolutely. Our guide Jorge was very knowledgeable and he organized the trip very professional. The lunch break is sufficient and we stopped at the L’Enfant Plaza. We could choose one of the different places. The boat tour was nice, but there is really not very much to see, DC from the waterfront. Al in all, very good and the best way to get an overview and good information.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our nighttime tour of DC with USA GuidedTours. Curtis did an excellent job navigating and knew the best routes when street closures were in place. Josh was our guide and he was energetic and a wealth of knowledge. We were able to visit all of the sights as advertised in our itinerary. I would not hesitate to book with this company again.

"Best Tour !"

We were in the DC area for a family wedding. I contacted US Guided tours to arrange a private tour of DC for 15 family members. The booking process could not have gone any better. Tiffany handled making all of our arrangements and insured that everything went exactly as we had planned. She was such a delight throughout the entire planning /booking process! Our driver Tracy (don't forget to ask her to sing) and our tour guide, Jamal were by far the best guides I have ever had on a tour. Jamal's knowledge of DC and warm personality made our tour so enjoyable! I highly recommed using USA Guided tours! I will never tour DC or any other areas they service any other way than using USA Guided tours.
