  • Awesome Trip!

    Our trip was so full of activities and sights! We were on the go constantly, and saw everything we wanted to see, from the White House to Capital Hill, Mt. Vernon, Arlington Cemetery, the Alexandria Ghost Tour.... it was all terrific! The education aspect was also great. Our tour director was very knowledgeable and made the experience even better!!! I can't wait to go on our next tour!

  • Overpriced and an unpleasant bus driver

    This tour was not a good value. Most of the experiences are free (as you expect with DC), yet EF Tours could not provide decent food. One of the dinners included meal vouchers at Union Station. Menu choices were very limited. One option was two Auntie Ann's pretzels. Two pretzels should never be considered dinner. Our bus driver was very cranky throughout and was incredibly rude to multiple staff members and students. Our tour guide was a smart aleck who rambled inane nonsense (mostly about food), and proceeded to get irritated when people tuned him out. He made no effort to hide his contempt for our group. His idea of conversation starters included asking people what type of gum they liked. Still, he eventually grew on me. I think he simply needs to work on being friendlier upon introductions. He told a lovely story about his college roommates near the end of the tour that I wish had come sooner. It was the only time on the tour he was remotely self deprecating, and I think that made him more endearing to many of us.

    Customer Experience

    Dear Traveler, Thank you for taking the time to submit a review of your recent tour to Washington D.C. I am sorry to hear about your experience with your bus driver and the tour director. We are surprised to hear your feedback, but we it is incredibly helpful for followup with these two individuals on their overall performance for the seasons. We will work together with them to ensure no other groups have a similar experience. In regards to your dinner at Union Station, I wanted to clarify that we do typically book your first dinner at this location in order to provide flexibility to your day in case of a late arrival to tour. The voucher provided offers additional options besides Auntie Anne's and we hope that the travelers choose those options. It's great to hear that the overall experience did improve later on in the tour and we hope to see you on another EF tour in the near future so that we can show you more of what we have to offer!

  • Awesome first tour!

  • Unforgettable Memories

    The tour director we had was amazing, and very passionate about they did. We were able to do so much, but still have a choice in everything that was done. It was an opportunity of a life time, and I have been left with memories to carry with me through life.

  • Tremendous!

    This was our first experience to Washington, D.C. and also to have a tour with everything all planned out for us! I couldn't have asked for more. Our tour guide was amazing and had lots of knowledge of our tours, the bus driver was awesome, and we got in everything with a nice amount of time for each place we visited. I have already recommended EF to everyone I have talked with about our trip! Great Job!!

  • amazing experience! :)

    The tour guide was very nice and was glad to show us around Washington D.C. Although there was quite a bit of walking, overall, I would do it again.

  • I Would Do It Again

    The trip was good over all. Really the only issue was the tour guide showing up at the wrong airport, but no big deal.
