    What a day is all I can say..... A long one but it goes with a flash, From the staff to the coach and places visited it was great... The coach we traveled on had Wi-Fi on board and the drivers were great as was the tour guide ... I'd do this trip again in a heart beat if I've the time when next I visit NYC, Stood on the steps of Capital Hill and at the railings outside the White House and visited Arlington Cemetery but to name a few, If your in NYC and have the time do this trip, it was 5 star,,,, Taken on the 28th Sep.

    We travelled from NYC to Washington DC. It was a great experience. Our tour guide was very funny, and had great knowledge. We saw almost every highlight in Washington DC in just one day. We can really recommend this tour.
