Went 10 years ago and loved it, so went back, and still loved it. Just Joe was an awesome driver as was Dave on the green line, but really all the trolley operators know their stuff, are gracious, have a sense of humor and are worth the extra tips. Just Joe played Cash Trolley, really gave out some of his... More

"Speaker" was a terrific guide and driver for our evening tour of DC. When a fellow passenger failed to return to the bus as requested, he handled the situation as I would hope someone would for me. Folks, if you take a tour by yourself, be sure the person next to you at least knows your name and let the... More

Last night we had a wonderful tour of Washington with the help of Old Town Trolley's tour guide, William "Smokey" Jackson. Believe me, you will go a long way to get a guide any better. He was entertaining, knowledgeable, amusing, and even sang for us! He had clips like the one from Martin Luther King's I Have a Dream speech,... More

Did Orange Line which is for National Mall loop. Go early morning and stay on trolley for entire loop. After first pass hop on/off to explore. Note that the Capitol and Lincoln Memorial are big draws, you may have to wait for another trolley. You'll be pleasantly surprised by less famous memorials/monuments that aren't so famous - they are non... More

Trolley drivers are very informative, no automated system on this tour. Be sure to spend the extra $6 dollars for the green line tour, it was worth it.

I'm so happy we chose them for our trip to DC. They cover so many attractions, very informative, friendly, courteous, & funny. We did the extended tour green, orange, & red line for Washington, DC. It was wonderful; the best way to cover so much ground in a day. We highly recommend Old Town Trolley!

The hop on and off option is fabulous and you can always count on having a great tour guide. Mr.History and Just... More

Our family of four, including teens 14 and 16 enjoyed this tour on our first night in DC. Information provided by the sales booth at the entrance of Union Station was not accurate as to price and discount. In looking back it is possible that he was selling daytime “hop on, hop off” tickets and did not understand that we... More

This is a great value, and a fantastic history lesson. Drew our driver was first rate, and his love of the city, plus it's history was outstanding. He made a good evening great!
