This was a birthday present for my husband whilst we were in New York and it did not disappoint. I was concerned that we would not have much time around the sites but I should not have been worried. Alicia and Hose were amazing. Alicia was so knowledgeable and gave us lots of information. We went to Arlington, Lincoln memorial which was amazing, the White House which was amazing, Capitol Hill, Liberty bell, then The museum where Rocky ran up the steps which of course my husband and I did in 40 seconds lol. It was a really good day and highly recommend.
Great, efficient trip
