Smithsonian National Museum of Air & Space: Guided Tour
- Small group
- Duration options: 1.5 - 2 hours
Jonathan was our tour guide and he is one of the best guide I encountered so far. During the trip he continued to feed us with all relevant info and kept us engaged all along. He stopped at regular interval and let everybody know his full-day programme including breaks and repeated the same time to time so that you remain relaxed always. He took us to all the important tourist spots and sometimes accompanied us and sometimes let us enjoy alone. He remembered everybody's name!!! On top of all, if you have one spare day the day trip from NYC to Washington DC is a must as you would see many things that you knew life long. Just one point for improvement - the glass holders attached in front of seats should be cleaned properly and the seat covers looked old and should be replaced at some regular interval. In summary, EXCELLENT tour - content-wise, experience-wise and money-wise.
The tour itself was fantastic and our guide, Cassie, was very knowledgeable. We were very disappointed that we were not picked up at our hotel as promised. We had to Uber at the last minute which was stressful and costly. Sadly, Sally at the office did not pass along the message to the driver to pick us up, nor did anyone pick up the phone when we called to inquire about it.
The tour was perfect. The torture guide, Tyrone, was amazing. He was so knowledgeable and had many unique facts to share. He was funny. My three children (ages 5, 13, and 15)and I were all very impressed. He even captured wonderful family pictures at multiple landmarks. 10 out of 10 would recommend! Being offered bottled water was a plus!
It was great, specifically as a crash introduction trip to DC, some stops are a bit rushed, however, a lot can be done on them. Bus ride is smooth and comfortable. Guides are extremely wary as well.
Brilliant day. Lots to see including Arlington memorial, Lincoln memorial capital building, Whitehouse to name a few. Thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Comfortable bus very well timed the day flew over.
