We had limited time in DC which as a shame because it is a beautiful city with wonderful architecture. We took the trolleybus tour from Georgetown and had the extended tour. although it was raining on the day of our tour it was an excellent tour. 2 out of 3 or our driver/guides were very good with the 3rd one...

We used the Old Town Trolley service our last day in Washington. It was a great way in getting around to all the monuments and memorials. We got to do and see so much more than if we had to walk or use some other transportation. I cannot even imagine having to walk to all the memorials with 2 kids.... More

If it is your first time in Washington, I strongly recommend this tour....and buy a two day ticket. On the first day use the tour to see all the sights in Washington, and hear about the place from the guides/drivers who give a live commentary on each trip. It is a relaxing way to find your way about this great... More

Our tour began and ended at Union Station and our driver, Mike, was also the narrator. He was very, very good. This tour started at 7:00 PM and ended around 10:00 PM and we covered the monuments from both sides of the Potomac. It was especially nice that the flaps on the trolly were all rolled up and the breeze... More

I love the Trolley Tours with the on off option. DC has so much to see and it would take many trips to see it all. I have taken the Trolley Tours many times. If I am with a first time visitor I like to take the trolley around the entire route then make plans on which site to spend... More

The absolute best tour I've ever had!!!! Our tour guide/driver was so interestingly informative and engaging with our group. I am so not a history person but he was very enlightning all while being fun and funny. We had our organizations founder with us who actually marched with Martin Luther King Jr. and Just Joe was so amazed and just... More

We did both tours and we were glad we did. Both drivers were excellent and you learned so much. It also made us know where we wanted to go back and see in more detail. This is great when you only have 3 full days to see as much as you can.

If you want an easy way to see the main sights of DC this is a great option. The drivers were very informative and the whole tour took 1.5 hours. You can get off and on at 13 different locations. Downfall is it can be crowded and we found the pick up times inconsistent. Some sights can not be seen... More

These tours are really very good, 2 separate tours one of the city and monuments etc and the other of the outer areas each of which is entertaining and very convenient. Departure point is in a central location, the staff polite and helpful and the drivers/tour guides personable and entertaining. A great way to see around the city in a... More
