We took our 12 year old grandson to Washington, DC for his birthday spending most of the time in the museums of Smithsonian. Since we needed a break occasionally we bought a 2 day pass on the Old Town Trolley Tours and are so very glad we did. These folks made our trip happier and we learned so much about... More

The drivers we had were very knowledgeable and informative. The main problems that I experienced were the frequency of the pickups and the lack of available seats. Although the drivers would radio in for more trollies, it definitely affected one's plans for the day.

On June 28, 2014, we had the pleasure of meeting two of your employees - Capt. Kent and Linda. I had had a terrible experience with another tour company and Capt. Kent came to our rescue. He was very friendly and extremely helpful. As a result of our interaction with him we decided to take your trolley tour of DC.... More

My husband and I are retired Air Force so we stayed on base and took the rail to downtown many days. It was wonderful. When we discovered the trolly we were so glad. It drops you and picks you up just anywhere you would want to go. We ended up having to go past a place that we had already... More

The Old Town Trolley in DC is a fabulous way to see the city and to get around to all the different museums and attractions. The buses/trolleys are clean, the drivers are knowledgeable and the buses are timely. This company even has their own Iphone or Android app that lets you know where the buses are in relationship to your... More

The stops were convenient, and the extended routes allowed us to get away from the National Mall sites. Really enjoyed the loop through Georgetown. Very convenient to our hotel.

We bought the tour for all 3 lines - Orange, Green, and Red. It was a great time and we learned alot about Washington DC from the drivers - Ellie, Mr. History, and M&M. I would recommend this to anyone and I would also do it again. We took the Green line to the National Cathedral. It is an amazing... More

The trolley is clean and the drivers are personable. That being said, each time we needed to pick the trolley up at any given stop, we found ourselves running like crazy people to different corners for the pickup. The stops seem to change based on the traffic and tour busses. We were very frustrated and ended up missing some of... More
