“The tour with Steve was very enjoyable and informative. He definatly knows his history! They were even kind enough to hand out bottles of water on a hot day. The tour hit a lot of the major monuments in DC and the 4 hours flew by. Definatly recommend this company to anyone looking for a DC tour!”

“I took the four hour day tour.
I was in a group of three people touring, so when you see the words “small groups,” believe it. I saw more in the short time I was in DC by taking this tour than my children saw in a week, and I felt like the tour was highly personalized, mostly because our tour guide, Dean, was really nice and made sure all of us were happy with what we had seen when he picked us up and if there was anything not on his itinerary that we would like to see. He made sure to keep our time to what was advertised, and we didn’t take advantage of him by asking to go somewhere he hadn’t planned, but I have a very strong feeling that if we had asked to go somewhere that would have taken us over time, not only would he have taken us, but he would have known the history of the place we wanted to go. He’s that good. If you have four hours to kill in DC during the daytime, I cannot recommend this tour highly enough!”

“The Day tour exceeded my expectations! Dustin was my tour guide today and he did a great job! He’s very knowledgeable, great sense of humor and down to earth. I highly recommend See DC Today as your tour guide!”

“We loved our tour yesterday with See DC Today. Ari was our tour guide and Dean was our driver. Both were excellent! Dean knew his way around DC and was always at the right spot at the right time to pick us up (no waiting!). Ari was super knowledgeable about DC and history and was very friendly. She knew just the right amount of facts and information for our group and the right amount of time at each stop. Also, our group varied in ages and the tour was thoroughly enjoyed by all! We felt this tour was 100% worth it. We were touring DC for the day and wanted to see all the major monuments and historical sites. We were able to do this on a four hour private tour! I rarely write reviews but this company was A+! Highly recommend.”



“HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!! My wife and I went On the NYE and wow it was great. First and foremost Steve ( our guide) kept the van nice and toasty on the cold day and whenever we went out for photos made sure the can was secured and helped everyone off the van. EXTREMELY KNOWLEDGEABLE and fun gives you a good history brief and talk throughout the tour Awnsers all questions with ease and ensured everyone maintained social distance.”
