We took a 2 day ticket plus the Arlington Cemetery add on. A great decision as it enabled us to get the most out of our short visit to Washington DC. The drivers / guides were fabulous with a great sense of humour. This is a good way to see all of the popular sights and then visit museums etc... More

We highly recommend the night tour of the National Monuments. Seeing them in the evening light and the commentary from the knowledgable drivers help enhance a visit to DC. Be aware of the festivals and parades that can interfere with normal scheduled stops, which are beyond the control of Old Town Trolley.

Glad we chose this trolley. The drivers were wonderful and riding the trolley definitely made it possible to see as much of D.C. as we could in the short one day we had to sight see.

Our group booked a moonlight tour of the monuments in Washington DC, so we had the whole bus to ourselves. Because of this, we were able to ask for specific stops during our tour. This was a great way to see the monuments and historic sites. Our tour guide, Jason, was very knowledgeable about DC and guided us through the... More

Old Town Trolley Tours is the best way to see the city, highlighting the best of Washington DC, with 20 stops and more than 100 points of interest. My trip included three drivers/guides, and all were unique and good. There are two separate trips, and two tickets, but generally they allow both trips on one ticket. The highlight of one... More

This is a hop-on, hop-off trolley or bus that takes you on a set route around all the tourist attractions of Washington DC. There are two main lines and a spur line that takes you out to Arlington Cemetery (in our opinion you just have to do that trip!). The drivers and tour guides are extremely pleasant and knowledgable. Each... More

My son and I tagged along on a business trip with my husband. We saw an OTT driver outside of our hotel so we stopped to ask. He was very nice. On concierge, Kendall (Mariott Wardman), booked our tickets and the next day we were off. We started with Mr. Ordinary and over the next 2 days we encountered MJ,... More
