Narrated tour helped us get our sense of direction on our first day in town. Water shuttle ride on the Potomac was relaxing. Bus into Arlington Cemetery took all the quess work out of figuring how to get across the bridge. Would recommend taking this bus tour on your first or second day in town.

From choosing the Holiday Inn, Rhode Island Avenue and being able to get transportation everywhere. The trolley picked us up at the Holiday Inn and we didn't need to move our car or ride Metro at all. The State Capitol building tour was better than the White House. You need to see the Library of Congress....amazing. Trip home via GPS was uneventful and leaving D C after noon was best time to avoid traffic

I highly recommend the hop on hop off trolly. We did it for two days to get around the city. The drivers/tour guides are highly knowledgeable about DC and it’s history. Arlington Cemetery was a somber tour, but it was our honor to visit and pay our respects. The changing of the guard ceremony was very nice. And I recommend the water taxi trip. It was a very nice relaxing time after the hustle and bustle of the city.

This tour was great! We left on a very nice charter bus and our tour guide Deon gave a lot of great information on the way to Mt. Vernon. On the way to Mt Vernon we stopped at George Washington’s church. We were given a lot of info and were able to tour the church and grounds. We even got to sit in George Washington’s booth in the church. When we reached Mt Vernon we had some time to look around before our tour of Washington’s house. It was amazing to see where our Founding Father lived and died. After the tour we had time to walk the grounds to see the beautiful views, Washington’s grave, and tour the museum of his life. We ate at the cafeteria because we wanted something simple and quick but would’ve loved to eat the restaurant. I felt the amount of time there was perfect. It’s so nice to be able to just park and get on the bus. We can enjoy the sites and get info about them without the hassle of driving through the traffic. Definitely recommend!!!

Fantastic way to travel around and taking in all the sites. Trolley drivers were friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. No issues getting a seat at any time. Took the shuttle bus to Arlington, again, driver very informative, you could spend a lot of hours here so using the trolley service is ideal to cover the vast area in a shorter time. Guided tour gave insightful facts that you would never have known by just walking around by yourself. The major sites such as Washington Monument, Capitol Hill and Lincoln Memorial,etc, are further apart than you think! also with the heat! The trolley gets you around effortlessly and lets you find your bearings!

This was a great experience. We used the hop-on hop-off for multiple days and ended up purchasing the night trolley tour as well. Each driver was friendly, kind, funny and full of knowledge. I will definitely be using Viator again!

We loved our day of hopping-on and off so much we signed up for an amazing evening tour! With the same guide, Adam. During the cool damp days it was nice to be able to be warm and dry and not have to sit in an open upper deck. On the evening tour there was a bit of a mix up in information called and spoke to at least 3 people about time and place to meet but we finally figured it out.

Our Trolley tour was amazing. We loved the drivers and how knowledgeable and funny they were. We learned so much! We have been to the city many times and we saw places we hadn't seen. We loved being able to get off where we wanted or stay on the bus. It was definitely worth every penny. We are from PA and we met our family that traveled from IL. They too loved the trolley tour and we would all happily do it again next time we come to the city. Thank you!

The driver/narrators were great. Both knowledgeable and entertaining. Good coverage of all the major memorials and other sites. Excellent commentary on the buildings and other sites as we drove along the streets. Easy to get off and back on- not a very long wait.

We had a wonderful experience with two tours.....the night tour and a two day tour. Unfortunately we weren't able to see all the 25 exhibits. Next time. The tour guides were all fantastic and incredibly full of knowledge. Bella, on our night tour, was on her first ever tour and she was excellent. Jorge, also, was on a maiden voyage. He too was expert. Please feel free to take these tours you will totally enjoy yourselves.

The buses were great - we used them over 2 days repeatedly to see everything on the National Mall. Well worth the money as far as we were concerned.

Excellent tour. Guides were very knowledgeable and lighthearted. Was so handy for getting an overview of the city and being hop on/hop off visiting the sights. Arlington cemetery tour was a bonus and my favorite.
