The tour was really great but I was worried how excited my 7 year old would be. Turns out Just Joe took care of that. He played a fun little game that kept the kids and adults engaged. He was appropriate when the location warranted a more somber tone but lots of fun the rest of the time. He had... More

Loved using the Old Town Trolly to tour around the Mall. Took Metro to Union Station, quickly bought our ticket and off we went! Loved the GPS option to determine time of next bus! Drivers were informative and helpful. Would have like a stop by the Native American Museum. Overall...great way to see Washington, DC without the worry of traffic... More

After experiencing another amazing day tour, I expected the same or more. Our tour guide was blah and gave just enough info to fill up time. He stayed on the bus and didn't offer anything special. I'm sure they're limited and follow a certain guideline but the lack of passion for their city just left me wanting to go back... More

This is an excellent way to see the city. I recommend booking all three loops which enable you to see Washington Harbour and Georgetown, Arlington as well as all points of interest around the National Mall. The buses were frequent and reliable and the drivers were courteous, helpful and very informative. I also did the Moonlight tour with Old Town... More

We booked the 2 days option and they do not have to be taken on consecutive days. There are plenty of stops and all popular areas of the city are covered on two separate loops (Green and Orange) and a shuttle (Red Loop) from the Lincoln Memorial to the Arlington Cemetary. (This is at an additional charge). We found the... More

Just Joe was funny, interesting and informative! Enjoyed his narration. Would have not been as good without him. Thanks Joe! Best wishes to you and your young family. From Boston!

This tour bus company is definitely the best way to get an overview of the city. The drivers tell you about the sites you are passing, are very courteous, and some are really funny, You can get off the bus anytime, and you won't have long to wait until another bus comes around to get you after you have seen...

The buses are large and comfortable and they pick up at regular intervals. I suggest getting a two day pass. There is not enough time to stop at every attraction and get on the last bus going back to National Harbor. Very good value for the money.

We loved the trolleys. We used both the Green and Orange loops. The Green loop takes you to the National Cathedral and along Embassy Row before passing through old Georgetown. The Orange loop takes you Downtown and past all the sites on the National Mall. The drivers were all most helpful and knowledgeable. Their briefs produced many a laugh. I... More
