This is a really good way to get around the city. We were there the weekend before the Cherry Blossom festival and the city was very crowded. The tour guides are very friendly and knowledgeable. Remember to bring tip money.

My daughter and I booked the Monuments at Night Tour on our last night in Washington, DC. It was raining and we were looking for something to do to get us out of the hotel room. I called a few hours ahead of departure time to reserve our space. We were driven around to various sites. There were stops all... More

We just got back from visiting our daughter in DC. My husband and I have some health problems and cannot do a lot of walking. We did the red, green and orange tours. The drivers were kind and shared their knowledge and love of the area. We ended up stuck in traffic with the Cherry Blossom Fest. The drivers kept... More

Wonderful tour guides with interesting facts, all of them were fantastic (especially Diamond Jim). We unfortunately ended up being in DC on the day of the cherry blossom parade which caused some stops to be skipped and quite a bit of traffic. But even with those delays and problems, it was still definitely worth our time and money to be... More

My parents are 80 and were quite happy to get a chance to see a lot without having to walk for miles. The drivers provided great information and most of the trolleys were comfortable - more bus-like than trolley-like. The suggestions we have are more trolleys to cut down wait time, or at least a schedule that is accurate. Again,... More

We bought Moonlight Tour and Day Pass Tour. Day Pass valid from earlier morning around 9am till 5pm and there are two loops (green and orange) a day pass holder can take. As we only have one and half day in DC, this is the best way for us to see everything(from outside) with a tour guide around(the trolley driver).... More

We had a 1 day orange and green loop pass for Old Town Trolley tours in DC and very much enjoyed it. A great way to get an overview of DC. In particular, our driver for the green loop was "Congo Ken" and he was awesome! Very funny and informative! The only suggestion for improvement would be more trolleys. We... More

Well worth the purchase. The drivers were very informative. Make sure to get the map - it's the best - especially for the Nat'l Mall Museums. We did a full day on/off and the moonlight tours - both were excellent!!!!!

My family of 4 (2 boys - 15 & 12) really enjoyed our Monuments by Moonlight tour. Our guide was Sooner Steve and he was fantastic. Steve was very knowledgable about DC and all of it's wonderful monuments and history. He spoke clearly, kept it interesting and you could tell that he really wanted everyone to enjoy their time on...
