Small Group Tours of Washington, DC and vicinity
A "boutique" tour company is one that services groups of 20 or less. This offers more personalized service.
Large bus companies work on volume. Buses can be crowded and sometimes delayed to certain stops. Our semi-private day and evening tour maximum group size is six passengers. Also, the day tour driver/guide will have no more than 2 groups to manage allowing a smooth transition between stops.
A private tour is based on an hourly rate. The driver/guide has only that group and the tour can be customized. The semi-private tours leave from a centralized location. The group size is only 6 passengers and the driver/guide may have 2 groups during the day tour. The tour itinerary is set and not readily customizable.
Children under the age of 9 years old by law are required to be in booster or car seats. This therefore has them occupying a seat of a possible paying passenger. To help passengers with young children we will provide a booster seat for children 3 years and older (passengers with children under 3 must provide their own infant carrier or car seat).
Only private tours can be customized.
Since hotels in the District, Maryland, and Virginia are spread out, it is simpler to have everyone meet at a centralized location. Hotel pickup and dropoff are offered with any day trip or private tour.
As a "boutique" tour company, a four person minimum sometimes is not met. By pricing couples a little higher it guarantees a tour going out for that couple.
