Guide was fun and knowledgeable. We got on and off and had easy access to desired historical sites; Washington monument, Jefferson monument, Lincoln monument, MLK Jr,monument, WWI and Vietnam War monuments, the white house and Ellipse Park... Still alot of walking but we didnt have to fight with parking. Well worth the money.

Went on a sunny Monday and had very few other tourists with us. the guides were all good but one of them (Adam) was special. Enjoyed the entire trip around the city and the explanations by the guides. Easy to get on and off. Switched from the NW line to the Mall line and back with no problems. Have been... More

We absolutely loved our tour guide. She could not have been more pleasant. The ticket price was fair and well worth it. We enjoyed all the stops. We thought we knew everything about our Capital city, but there was much more to the story. Thanks for sharing.

We were a group of five with three elders waiting for Big Bus at Arlington cemetery. The wait was nice because Michael, driver of Old Town Trolley galantly offered seats to the elders since his bus had to wait for about fifteen minutes. Thumbs up for Michael!!! Way to go.

48 hours notice of the need for an accessible trolley is required and the platform lift to the rear of the trolley worked well. The routes are very good and in my case I did not get off at any stop but the drivers - Michael and Ken said it was no problem if I chose to do so. Ms... More

This was a great way to get an overview of the monuments in Washington, D.C. As someone who knew little about American History it was a great introduction. The tour took us most of the day (we only hopped off a couple of times) so I would recommend planning another day for the Smithsonian Museums if you wish to go... More

After spending a couple days walking DC we wanted to see sites outside our walking range. A friend who is a frequent visitor to DC suggested OTTT - thank goodness! Aside from the hop on - hop off feature the tours a lead by well versed and educated drivers/historians. We began at 9:00am and road the trolley, off and on,... More
