"I first heard about Tours4Fun online. I looked up travel tours and they came up. It said something about being able to get off and get back on when you wanted to. And that's what we wanted to do because we had two of our grand kids with us... and we didn't know how long it would take at each place we wanted to visit. The online purchasing experience was pretty easy. We got our tickets and got the information printed out. And when we showed up in DC at the Union Station, it was where we got on. We showed our pass to the lady at the booth and we got right on. No problems. We took two grandchildren along with us to DC to see some of the sites and the museums. And the tour was just so that we could get on the bus. And what we did with the first day we were there, we got on and rode around the entire trip so that we could see where things were. And then that afternoon, we got back on and went to a couple of specific sites. Overall, my experience with them was very good." Read full review
