Bought the 2 day tickets and have absolutely no regrets. The first day we took the complete orange and green line tours (without getting off) and the second day we hopped plus took the red line to Arlington Cemetery. The traffic was HORRENDOUS both days but the drivers seemed to be able to maneuver around effortlessly. There was a Lupus... More

We were in DC for a conference and only had Saturday and Sunday for touring. We decided on Old Town Trolley because the were convenient to our hotel. Both tours were excellent. We were able to do all three lines. We could have done a lot of the touring on our own using the metro and walking, but would have... More

This could have been a nice experience if there were more trolleys and it was better managed. We were in DC for spring break last week and decided to take this tour. The hop-on, hop-off aspect was what was most appealing to us, but it was unusable in that way. We were only able to hop back on twice as... More

Parked at Ballston Commons, took the metro to DC - much easier than I expected. Got to Union Station and the Trolley was there at 9 sharp. We traveled all around the city with excellent tour guides. We could get on and off as many times as we wanted and could stay as long as we wanted in any one... More

Mike your driver was "Mr. History" and he did make the history of DC come alive. My tour took just over an hour and a half to go around as there was a bit of traffic the day of my tour. I got some great photos right from my trolley. The stops were very convenient to a lot of the... More

We took this tour yesterday. We bought our tickets online and picked up our "physical" tickets in Union Station. We started out a little behind schedule as there was an ambulance and fire truck right in front of us tending to an incident. Bryan was very professional and kept apologizing for it (when it wasn't even his fault). We rode... More

Travelling in DC is a challenge when one is accustomed to parking and walking to each point of interest. The Old Town Trolley Tours gave us the opportunity to see so many more major points of interest conveniently. The driver gave very good supplementary information with a touch of humor. I would recommend starting early in the day to achieve... More
