We planned a trip with our exchange students family flying in from Spain. Unfortunately, our trip had to be cancelled when President Trump closed the borders to flights from Europe. My husband spent a long time negotiating trying to get a refund for our tickets. Sadly, DC

We spent our first day in Washington on this tour. So only got the single day pass. It was a great way to get our bearings and see exactly where we wanted to go. One particular guide was very cool (his name has escaped me) he was very funny and bought smile to all our faces.

Purchased a 24 hour hop on / hop off pass for 4 adults. Like others have commented, the app wasn’t useful, so ended up calling the office for information. The wait was around 40-50 minutes between buses, and we couldn’t understand what was being said, the guide spoke so fast.
