So useful for the short time visitor. We took 3 tours, including the Monuments by Night tour. All excellent. Great fun and informative guides, clean trolleys. Would return, would recommend

Such a fun and great way to get around DC! We only had 5 hours to spend visiting and though we hurried around because of our own personal time restriction (we had to catch a flight at BWI) we still got to see everything we wanted! Plus the driver Smokey was awesome! He was energetic and very knowledgeable. I would... More

Toured Washington DC with this company on a wet day and were pleased with our decision over the other tour operators. The Old Town Trolley vehicles are covered but have high windows that allow full views and roll down clear blinds that can be used when needed. The trolley drivers provide informative and humorous commentary throughout and were all good,... More

Took an evening tour with my 94 year old, wheelchair bound father who is a WWII vet. Hoya Hank was a great driver and tour guide and made it fun and interesting for all. He went out of his way to make sure my dad was taken care of getting on and off the bus and went the extra mile... More

The bus tour was interesting. Bus looked pretty decent and was a great way to see the city. The narration was very difficult to hear. The one driver seemed to have a very heavy foot. The online live GPS tracker was terrible. The one bus went from 20mins - 3 mins in no time and so we missed that bus.... More

Great open window trolley that helps fight the heat with an amazing breeze and allows unlimited photo opportunities without window glare. The monuments are a lot further apart than the movies show. The trolley is frequent every 30 minutes so you can see a lot in one day. however I highly recommend the 2 day tour as you can take... More

This is the third city we have used oldtimetrolley and it is always a pleasure. The drivers/tour guides were superb. All the ones we had (7) were great but Smokey stood out from the seven as the best seen to date by us.

This is our second experience with Old Town Trolley Tours. The first was in Savannah Georgia and we really enjoyed it. There is a lot of walking to see the sights of DC and the Old Town Trolley is the perfect way to get around. I like to hear the stories of the trolley drivers because they provide information you...
