GREAT PLACE TO FEEL GREAT ABOUT YOUR COUNTRY!!!
Loved everything about Washington D. C. I was there many years ago, but not as a photographer. It's great to see things with photographers eyes now! Want to go back! Julian
Washington, D.C. Day Trip from New York Reviewed by Julian, 09/14/2013
Driver was very informative...made the tour all the more memorable.
At first sight, I thought we weren't going to enjoy the trip too much. We were told it would be a double decker bus but it wasn't. The cup holder in front of my seat was full of gum gook. Bathroom was not very appealing. The bus we switched to get back to the hotel after the tour was much better. I'm glad the driver had loads of knowledge to offset the appearance factor. Overall the tour was really great...just wish the bus was a little better.

You see the most important things of Washington!
I really liked the tour to Washington. It was well organised and also the Guides were very nice. The only thing I would change is the last stop at the Museum. I would rather let people more time at Madame Tussauds than rushing through it and then stop at the museum for 1h and 20 minutes (we barely had 40 min in Madame Tusauds). You can easily skip this step and return early back to New York. Because of the traffic it took us almost until 11pm until we got back. Otherwise it was very nice and you get to see all the important monuments and tourist attractions of Washington and all that in just one day!

Nice trip though we were in a hurry all time
The trip was nice! We saw all important things in DC. It was a little sad, that we have just a little time at the different places. The guide was kind- just strange that he asked for 10$ or even more tip! He said the rules say it that way! Think tip is what everyone wants to give by himself and not what he wants. But all in one nice day in DC!
