This was so much easier than having to find parking and navigate the memorials on our own. We had plenty of time to leave the bus and explore the memorials up close.

Awesome tour. Our tour guide Al was very friendly and knowledgeable and made sure that were able to really enjoy the memorials. There are so many tour bus options, I'm happy that I chose Gray Line Tours!

My daughter and I went on the memorial/monument tour. Big Al was our tour guide and did an awesome job! We went to DC for a week and this was our favorite tour! We got to see so much in such a short amount of time! Would recommend and would do it again!

Tour was cancelled. Given vouchers to Big Bus Tour. Their bus broke down and we walked most of the tour. Not what I was expecting.
