If you want to see Washington its worth the train trip 3 hours each way from New York City. For us it was well worth it.

A comprehensive and easy-to-do self-navigational tour. A long day, but would highly recommend.

A fantastic trip! What a beautiful city. The hop on hop off was a fantastic way to see all the sights. Pity there isn't an express train so there is more time to spend there.

Great tour. We wanted to see DC for a day but not spend the night, so this was the ideal way to go. Thanks.

Its worth going to Washington as there are many sights to see. the train left around 8:00 so we got their at lunchtime. The only problem we had was that the train going back to New York was at 19:30 and you can not go on a n earlier train, so this makes it a very long day.

A great trip but the day we chose happened to be extremely cold. Other than that it was a lovely and comfortable train ride and the 'hop on hop off' bus was good too. Thank you :)

The tour was great, but we saw the White House only from a distance. I wish the guides had allowed us to at least walk a little to the White House and Capitol Hill. I wonder if it was worth spending so much time on Arlington Cemetery. No disrespect meant, but surely Washington has better things to offer than glorified graves.

No problems at all - well organised from start to finish. Enjoyed the whole experience.

Tickets were not available when we went to the supplier. Returned several hours later and still no tickets. Had to return a third time to finally get them. Frustrating; however, the trip itself was good. Enjoyed DC very much.
