Perfect for the exhausted, hot, tired from walking parent. We purchased the orange and green lines. Only got off the trolley to switch lines. Got to see so much in a short amount of time. Bus drivers are funny, professional and very knowledgable. They are also good at keeping boundaries and ensuring everyone's safety and enjoyment. Would do this again... More

The have very few trolleys so you have to wait forever for them at each spot. They have the worst drivers, won't use it ever again! Dont do it!

I thought the Old Town Trolley would be a great way to get to more sights. I was also glad for a chance to relax and sit back and listen as we had already been walking all day everyday for several days! It was very useful to get us from the White House area to the Archives Smithsonian and then... More

This Trolly stops at all the interesting stops you might want to go to the sides were open so there's no air conditioner but a breeze seemed to be blowing. The driver told some interesting stories as you went along. When you stop and get off too see a sight,you have to wait about 20-30 minutes for another one to... More

We took this tour on our first day in Washington. It was a great way to see all the major sites in the city. We got up and got on the first bus leaving for the day, and made it back on the last bus. In between, we got off at the White House, the Jefferson Memorial, the Martin Luther... More

I enjoyed the tour. The trolley driver/guide told interesting stories and funny jokes. My two young teenagers were bored. The heat and humidity did not help, though when the trolley was moving, the breeze cooled us a bit. The trolley is a good way to get to the Lincoln Memorial and nearby monuments. But if you are not interested in... More

We purchased the two-day "hop on hop off" package, intending to use it to get around the city to the attractions we wanted to see, while also learning some extra tidbits along the way. The first day was great (a Saturday), but the second day (a Monday) we got on the trolley once in the morning, and couldn't again for... More

Took the day tour - buses begin around 9 end around 5/6. Hop on, hop off. Took the capitol loop. Shuttle from Lincoln Memorial to Arlington National Cemetery. They offer night tours but are not hop on/hop off and leave from Union Station. Driver's very friendly and knew their stuff. Summer season is most busiest time so I would suggest... More

We took the Moonlight Monuments Tour that met at Union Station. There is a strip of sidewalk between the taxi lane and car lane where you line up to wait for your tour bus. They have more than 1 bus at a time, so don't fret at the long line! The tour itself was great. The monuments and memorials are... More

The tour was very informative seeing everything at night was beautiful. Congo ken was very knowledgable about the history and also very in depth,great story teller and also added a dash of humor here and there. He even handled an unruly party that was distracting the tour. This tour is a must when visiting Washington D.C.
