Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Just finished our tour with Christopher. What a great experience. He was knowledgeable about all the locations, mixed in some fun humor, and gave us time at the stops to make sure we were able to visit and get pictures. This tour was highly recommended to me by a friend, and I’m so glad we went. Paying it forward by highly recommending this tour (and Christopher) myself.

    Tip: get the open top tour. Totally worth it.

    We went on the Monuments by Moonlight tour last weekend, with Bruce as our guide. The tour was awesome! There was an excellent overview of each place we stopped as well as commentary as we drove from stop to stop. The electric cars are neat. Bruce was extremely knowledgeable and great at answering questions. It seems like he really enjoys his job. I highly recommend this tour!

    This tour with Jim was incredible. He was extremely knowledgeable and helped make our visit to Arlington more meaningful. We were extremely moved by the whole experience and it was an important reminder to our family that freedom is not free. We felt honored to be amongst heroes at this special place.

    The tour guide was a blast! He was very interactive and shared his own experiences which really made the tour more enjoyable. Also, he was very knowledgable and was able to answer any and all questions. My advice to travelers is to answer and interact with your tour guide instead of ignoring him. Also, there is a total of two breaks around 15 to 20 minutes long at the US Capitol tour to use the bathroom and look at stuff so if you rush you can run down to the downstairs food court and buy yourself a pretty dessert or a quick snack. Happy travels!

    Overall it was a good trip. Didn’t start out great, as the tour bus was over 30 minutes late which left us and everyone else standing in the heat. Once the bus showed up we were all greeted by nice cold waters and an air conditioned bus. The rest of the tour was lovely, it was a hot humid day in DC so being able to come back to a nice cool bus after visiting the sites was wonderful. Our tour guide was Zuma who was very knowledgeable and funny.

    The whole trip was awesome. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave information that I was unaware of, having lived through some of the events. The tour also took us off the beaten path to sites specific to African American History.

    During the main, bus, tour, Sally was a great tour guide. She really knows the history and deep background of the people and places on the tour. Chris was a careful driver who thankfully kept the ice chest loaded with water for a hot and humid day.

    The morning tour guide, Brenda, gave us a highlight walking tour of Arlington Cemetery with a changing of the guard ceremony. She made sure we got in position for the best views and photos. It was not intended to be a comprehensive tour, but it gave us enough to start so we know what to look for when we go back.

    The boat tour was OK, but I would rather have heard Sally narrate the boat ride rather than listen to the very basic information from the recording. I'm honestly not sure the boat tour added anything special to the DC experience.

    We had a wonderful tour with Brenda! She was very knowledgeable and fun to have as a guide. We had our siz-year-old with us and she was very relatable for him in her insight. Thanks, Brenda!

    What a great and interesting tour! Our guide Richard was extremely knowledgeable and had amazing stories to share with us. My favorite part was Richard discussing some of the more current things going on in the museum system, what’s being renovated, what has been newly restored etc. If you want some fascinating history in a storytelling setting, Richard is the guide for you! Great for all ages, our youngest (7 years old) found everything interesting and retained a lot of the stuff we learned. He tailors the experience to make it relevant to the group, and it makes such a unique experience. The highest of recommendations for this tour!
