Nobody Liked The White House Tours That Much Anyway

The tours have a thoroughly average 3.5 stars on Yelp. "Worst club in DC. And I got caught planking on secret service car," wrote one reviewer.

6th grade students in Waverly, Iowa, pose for a photo on March 6, 2013. The class had their upcoming visit canceled as the White House suspended all tours.

With this week's announcement that the White House would suspend tours indefinitely because of spending cuts, would-be tourists can take solace in the fact that the tours are apparently not that great.

In fact, they average only 3.5 Yelp stars, with reviews detailing long lines, a too-short tour that's difficult to schedule, and security guards who won't even let you plank on secret service cars.

Here are some of the complaints:

The lines are too long.

It's creepy.

The tour is too short.

We need some clarity.

It's all politics.

One reviewer wanted it to be more European, less "Chuck. E Cheese."

"Worst club in DC. And I got caught planking on secret service car."

"I can't ride my skateboard or bike past."

Final thought: Just watch the TV special instead.
