  1. Incredible time for my son

    My son went on this tour with his school. The two teachers were amazing and the tour guide went above and beyond to make the tour interesting and informative. He enjoyed it immensely from start to finish and can't wait to go back to Washington and learn more about this wonderful city. Ironically we were hoping for him to witness a different swearing it but being believers in allowing children to make up their own minds and just enjoy the experience for what it was...a rare opportunity to be present at such an event... still made for memories that he will never forget at the actual inauguration . The tour company gets top marks for all they did and my son said their accommodation was great and the breakfast was excellent.

  2. Awesome experience

    Overall, the trip was exhilerating, fast pace, informative. Choice of restaurants was not so good. Red eye flights not recommended for children, then they have to tour the whole day after the flight.

  3. Fantastic!

    It was a lot of fun. I lliked all the different sights. I just didn't llike how much stuff they crammed into one day so we barely had time to actually stop and take pictures and look around a lot.

  6. Great Time.

    Overall, my tour to Washington, D.C. was a life changing experience. I visited three Smithsonian museums (The Natioanl Gallary of Art, The Natural History Museum, and the National Museum of the Native American) which allowed me to explore my love for the humanities as well as the sciences. My tour also visited the 57th annual Pesidential Inaugaration, another fascinating time. We visited Wlliamsburg, a historic recreation of a colonial town, during which I could be fully emerged in the cultures of that time period, and rekindling a love for it as well. This was an amazing tour, and I hope to participate in more events like it in the future.

  7. So Much Fun!

    I had so much fun on this tour! It was a lot of fun seeing the different things in DC. The only thing I would change was Sunday, EF Tours rented a bowling alley and we had to go bowling for dinner but our entire bus (41 people) only had one lane to bowl on. Other than that, the tour was amazing!!! I would definitely recommend this to any adult or student!

  10. ok

    Tour guide spent to much time talking which made us late for several events. Our bus had to move from the parking lot on Inauguration and we waited till late that evening to walk over 2 miles to get to it because all the exits were closed. Our motel rooms had numerous problems also.
