There is no way we could have experienced this many sites on our own. Our tour guide was simply wonderful! Our students really enjoyed his vast knowledge of history!! While our feet ached, there is NOTHING I would change about this tour!! We thought we were going to see a few buildings- what we actually experienced was MUCH more! Mount Vernon turned out to be one of our favorite stops, along with the walking tour/Ghost stories in Alexandria. The story teller realized the kids were a bit younger than her usual crowd- and was very appropriate to their level. I was so moved by the monuments, tears flowed when I least expected. The zoo was a joy to behold. The food along the way was much pricier than we are used to in Texas- but our tour guide gave us an idea or two to try to keep the kids within their budgets. Our hotel accommodation were excellent, as was the breakfast they provided. Our Charter bus was clean, and the driver was very kind, timely and patient.
If you are considering touring Washington DC, please do so!! Our students thoroughly enjoyed it!!

Great Leaning Experience!
The Science in DC tour was a wonderful experience for my son and I. We both learned tons and found new areas of interest. I will be back next year with my daughter for her 5th grade trip!

This was our first trip and I was blown away by the whole experience. The tour guides knowledge was amazing and brought the entire trip to life for the students. The amount of money paid for the trip is nowhere close to the value of the student's experience. The parents that went on the trip were so impressed that we have already scheduled an adult trip to NYC!! I can't wait to travel there and to Washington DC again next year. By far one of the more rewarding experiences I have had as a teacher.

I was extremely impressed with the experience! Everything was great.. from the bus driver, to the places selected, to the tour guide. I honestly do not know what I would have wanted to change about it. LOVED it all!

Great Value, Great Experience!
The overall experience of our group can't be described in words! We had so much fun, experience so many firsts, and would recommend this trip to anyone willing to listen! Our students experienced their first airplane flights, first trip without parents, and first subway rides just to name a few experiences on our trip. Along with seeing so much historically and scientifically important sites and experiencing the life of a scientist along the way. We would recommend this trip to anyone who wants a once in a lifetime experience!
