The twilight tour was the best way to see DC and get a wealth of knowledge. Charles picked us up from the hotel and gave us tons of info about locations on the way to l'enfants plaza. Once Jalisa came on board the fun really began. She is very smart and entertaining. Her description of the FDR's memorial was incredibly... More

Henry was a great guide and is very funny! We were on another bus that was too politically slanted for our taste but Henry made good jokes and engaged the riders! Thank you for an eventful guide during my staycation (Arlington resident). Keep up the good vibe in showing off the Nation's capital!!

We did this through Groupon and saved some money. We will definitely do this the next time we're in DC. The guides were friendly and funny (and told me they love their job). We learned a lot of random info that we didn't know and they got my tween daughter to smile and laugh. We loved being able to take... More

Everyone we encountered was so friendly and the tour guides were very knowledgeable and well spoken. The night tour was wonderful but sadly it was so cold out ... Being outside wasn't fun but the views and information from our super fun guide was great. The only reason I gave a 4 not 5 ... I wish they had other... More

Wow! I have to honestly say that this is the best city tour that I have been on! Our tour guide, Vern, was so informative, enthusiastic, and funny! He held my attention with some very interesting facts about D.C. Our driver was also great. I felt very safe with his control of the road. I would highly recommend this tour!

One of the best tours I've been on in any city. Vern is extremely knowledgeable and witty and clearly loves what he does. Jerry transported us like a stork carries babies. Great time!

Our tour guide, Charles was great. The only complaint I have with DC Trails was that there were no tickets to the Mansion available within the tour time frame available for us. Some people were able to exchange the available tickets which were for after our day was over with strangers for an earlier time frame (I have no idea... More

My boyfriend's father set he and I up on a grand tour through DC Trails while we were visiting Washington DC, so we weren't quite sure what to expect. Our expectations were definitely exceeded. Our tour guide, Robert, was very friendly. He was very knowledgeable about the area. If he could not answer a question presented by one of the... More

We took the Grand Tour on 2/16/17 with DeeDee and it was the highlight of our trip. DeeDee is an amazing tour guide, a DC history educator extraordinaire!! We did so much in one day, checked-off all the items on our list. I would recommend this to everyone because you get to see so much of Washington DC from the... More
