Here is a selection of the most recent reviews of the Washington DC Day Trip from New York submitted by actual travelers. Read what travelers liked, what they loved, and what they thought could be improved.
Wanted a day out from NYC and a taster of what Washington had to offer. This trip ticked all those boxes. Comfortable bus, stopover breaks, visits to all Washingtons main sightsees ( just pity Arlington maybe wasnt included - this could have replaced the unnecessary stop at a gift shop ) Good value for money. Highly recommended. Note at start of trip, not clear which queue to join. The meeting point is the departure point for up to 10 coaches, NONE posted with destinations, and on either side of the Park Street bridge ( so not easy to know where to join the right queue. Simple sign boards for each bus would solve this problem. Only by asking did we find the right bus eventually.Reviewed by: Peter T, United Kingdom, October 2012
Enjoyed the day very much not long enough would have lived to stay, however the day trip was well worth it.Reviewed by: Angela C, October 2012
The trip was great an we had enough time to visit the sights. Matt the tour guide did a good job and also everyone in the group followed the schedule so we didn't have to spend time waiting for someone.
The starting point at Grand Central was a bit confusing because there were several tours departing at the same time. I suggest that the tour guides should hold some kind of a sign so that it would be easier to find the right bus.
The Washington trip was amazing. It was a little like a Contiki Tour (6 countries in 6 days) but that is was the distances we had to travel. I loved everything about the trip except the Madam Trussau. I would have loved to see the Jefferson Memorial instead. The tour guide was very informative and even though we didn't have a lot of time at each stop it was enough for a fabulous photo. The lunch stop was very "boyey" but interesting. I think it was a great touch that the movie we saw on the way back to Manhattan was about American politics - very appropiate. We had an amazing time and would do other tours next time we are in the States.Reviewed by: Debra J, September 2012
It is great to see where all the important decisions that affect us all are taken. The White house, the lincoln memorial etc.... are as I imagined them. The guide on the trip was excellent with a lot of humor and information.Reviewed by: Bassam S, Lebanon, September 2012
I strongly recommend this 1-day trip..you get to see everything and more. The guides were very nice and very knowledgeable. They made the trip fun and interesting. This trip is worth every penny. I would do it again with this company.Reviewed by: PATRICIA G, August 2012
