Terrific service. Hotel pick up made it easy and convenient. Monuments are beautiful at night. Very well done.

This was a very nice way to see the monuments but there were a couple of problems. The company messed up the pick up date and then called to yell at us for not being at the hotel for pick up even though we explained the date was wrong. The tour was not the advertised length (2 1/2 hours rather than 4) and I thought we could have seen more monuments with the time we had. The driver/tour guide was very good though. Overall, the tour was frustrating and it is also frustrating that the company contracts out so you don’t know what you are going to get. This should be advertised.

...starts early with a great tour of embassies and the National Cathedral then transitions into the memorials ... Lots of walking , but very inspiring !!!

The tour was better than expected. The driver was on time to pick us up and was very enthusiastic throughout the tour. He gave an awesome explanation of each of the monuments and the history of the United States.

I would definitely use Washington DC Legend Tours again, and I would recommend the tour to my friends and family. I thought that the tour was reasonably priced. Yohannes, our guide, was friendly and very knowledgeable. I also liked that the group size was small. Pick up and drop off at our hotel was definitely a plus as well.

G=ood driver/guide. He was interesting, to the point, and kept our interest. We enjoyed the time, the sites, the ambience he seemed to create. Will certainly recommend.

Very insightful. In a small group climate controlled bus. Which was very important with the heat of July!

The tour guide was courteous and full of knowledge. We got to see so many sights during the tour which would of taken us longer to see on our own. Along the way we also got a history lesson. The monuments are beautiful at night. It’s a completely different experience then seeing them during the day!

Hotel pickup went perfectly. Don, our tour host was excellent, pointing things out that we may not have seen on another tour. Don was friendly and full of information about Washington DC. I enjoyed the experience and I would recommend this tour to anyone including friends.

I took this tour on Friday, April 13, 2018. It was generally pretty good but it started off rough with our tour guide saying that climate change was a hoax and that Al Gore didn't know what he was talking about and then said we don't talk politics on this tour. It was very off putting and I did not pay to come on a tour in which someone insists on their opinion being heard but then shutting down any comments that could be in disagreement. I agree that the tour should be a-political but that should include the driver/tour guide as well as the guests. I later asked if he had a script and therefore could excuse his comments but he assured me that he had a bachelor degree and in fact all info was his. Too bad. It cost him most of his tip.
The only other thing was that the time was very short for some of the monuments. Fifteen minutes for the Lincoln Monument, the Korean Monument and the Viet Nam Monument is just not sufficient time and this occurred several times. Try doing and walking between the Roosevelt and the MLK monument in 20 minutes. You can say you were there but you really can't see much of anything.
Our guide did provide quite a bit of info and helped people with additional info and dropped them at McDonalds at their request that is why I gave it three stars.
