The tour is excellent except I did not note anything that said we needed a passport to go to the Arlington Cemetery. We had government issued photo ID but were not able to go to the cemetery. Otherwise, it was terrific and the drivers were very knowledgable of the city.

Trip was great! Wait time was about 25 minutes if you got off. A tip for other travelers would be to go early so that you can visit the free Smithsonian museums!
