We were provided the wrong address to park the car to get to the pick up spot. Supposedly the pick was a couple minute walk but while trying to locate it, come to find out it was about 35 minutes walk from the recommended parking spot. The tour guide was very uncooperative and did not want to wait knowing it was not our fault. Had to pay extra to get a taxi to get to the late pick up point and missed the first 15-20minutes of the tour.

Terrible. Never recommend this tour to anyone
Nirajan_B
, Aug 2022
It is one of the terrible experience of my life. The cart was over crowded. We arrived at first at the cart station. They gave us back facing seats. We requested to cancel our reservation but because of 24 hours rules we couldn't do it. Backpacking seats are too risky. My wife was sick because of back facing seats. Very hot day with back facing seats is so terrible 😫. I would never recommend electric cart to anyone. Bus tour was way better than this electric cart. This experience discouraged me to book any future Viator. Don't book this painful tour.

Great way to see DC in a short amount of time. Very knowledgeable guide. The only thing would be the lack of leg room. I’m 6’ and my knees were hurting.

Helen was a fabulous tour guide that handled our fellow passenger that was a local and constantly adding her “advice.” We enjoyed the overview of the DC area and appreciated the suggestions for touring on our own.

We loved our tour guide Peter! He rocked. He was so informative and stopped at all the monuments and even took photos of us. It was an awesome tour and definitely worth the money so that we didn’t have to do so much walking on such a hot day goi g to and from the monuments. I highly recommend this tour! Worth every penny.

A fun and comfortable way to tour the major sights in DC.
Kaye_B

Our guide was Scheherazade, and she was terrific! Native of Alexandria VA, she is very knowledgeable and takes pride in DC and surrounding area. Knows her history, and shared many obscure facts with us. Great with our grandkids, ages 8 and 3. She is positive, upbeat, kind, fun, and knowledgeable. We could not have asked for more! Tour provides an overview of major sights in and around the tidal basin. We had a group of 6, so we had the cart to ourselves. It was essentially a private tour. If you are a group of 5 or 6 and want everyone in one vehicle, arrive early. Otherwise, you may be split in two vehicles. A fun way to see the highlights!
