I went with a group in the spring. We were only going to be in DC for one day and wanted to cover as much ground as possible. This was a fabulous alternative. We were able to see all of the major sites easily. I have been to DC many times, but was never able to make it to the... More

This is the way to go on a 90 degree day. Very efficient, no waits at all! Drivers very knowledgeable with different stories from each one. We for sure take the tour again. Wish we could of done the green line too!

We did a moonlight tour of DC. The driver/guide, Ms Harriet, was simply awesome. She definitely knows her stuff, was funny, informative and a good driver to boot! The three stops during the nearly 3 hour trip were worthwhile, especially the Lincoln Memorial and the FDR Memorial. The day trip was a hop on/hop off style. Stops at or near... More

Very good and knowledgeable guides, a tad overpriced especially for the red and green loops. Saw all major sights and stayed on for whole tour, trolley buses were comfortable even in the heat! However, if hopping on and off may have some difficulty as buses get very busy.

Wonderful time. Mr. E was our tour guide and he was outstanding. We recommend this tour and would do it again if we ever go back to DC. Wear walking shoes and be sure to take a camera.

Great way to see the city, we took a three day hop on hop off option, with a monuments by moonlight tour as well. Never had to wait too long for a trolley, and the guides/drivers were always helpful and friendly.

I was reluctant to use this trolley service because I thought it was pricey but after looking at the amount of stops it offered and after finding out that the 39.00 fare was actually for 2 days I said lets do it. The bus is clean and the drivers are very friendly and knowledgeable! But waited my 30 minutes in... More

Oh how I miss the old Tourmobile that dropped you off right at the door step to every monument and museum. The trolley drops you off at so little stops that it is literally hundreds of yards to a monument or museum. Capitol stop is on the West side, entry to capitol is on the East side, not convenient with... More
