The driver was very nice. He was informative and easy to understand. The staff at the welcome center was not very nice people. They were rude. We paid 119.00 for our trip for 2. They let 5 people go with us without paying a dime.

Buckeye was a fantastic guide; very knowledgeable, courteous, and fun. We got to see all the major sights in DC in a convenient, comfortable way. When the tour was over, my teen said he loved it and my 7 year old wanted to go again. Lol.

Overall it was a good tour. We saw a lot in a short amount of time which worked for us since we only had a few hours in D.C. before having to get to the airport. The guide was very knowledgeable and had a good sense of humor.
