My family liked the fact that we could get on and off as we wanted. We could always catch the next trolley. A tour guide was on each trolley to explain what sections of the Cemetery we were looking at and telling us which way to walk to see the Changing of the Guard, or visit Kennedy's Grave, or Ruth Bader Ginsburg's grave - among others. There is no way we could have walked to everything on the very hot, humid day we visited. We were able to purchase trolley tickets when we arrived at Arlington. We also were able to purchase tickets to go inside Arlington House and also see the enslaved people's quarters. This was also worth being a trolley stop as well. All of the tour guides provide a wealth of historic information that we would have overlooked had we tried to do it on our own.

5/5.

Amazing tour guide Gary “Russel” Washington -
Both he and the driver shared they have family members also buried at this cemetery.

Highly recommend this tour -

To pay respects to thousands who have given their lives in the name of U.S. freedom and explore Arlington National Cemetery with this helpful guide!
You can cover a lot of ground in the shortest time and get great facts along the way. It’s very hilly and lots of distance between main stops - the trolley is the way to go!!!

We took the Tour they offer at Arlington National Cemetery, we do every time and that is at 4 to 5 times a year. We always enjoy our tours and we laarn more and more each time. If you any issues you talk to your tour guide or driver, they can answer questions or help make your tour better. If your new to Arlington National Cemetery I recommend the tour, it’s hop off and hop on, great way to learn.

For one you did not have a staff member at the house, people just kept passing line so we sat in the heat FOREVER!!! I thought someone was supposed to be there regulating!! For 2 one of the tour guides was incredibly rude, demeaning & scolded us in front of a whole stopped tram for absolutely no reason!!! The front seat was open we were literally the only people at the stop when we tried to board she started yelling "excuse me I'm speaking to you over & over only to say that was a handicap seat (which it wasn't) and that if we didn't get off at the next stop & it was needed we would have to move. She could have told us that without all the unnecessary humiliation and it was not a handicap seat anyway. She needs hospitality training, and you should have someone directing who gets one in what order at all stops

The only good thing about the tour is the ride to the top of the hill for the changing of the guard. After the changing of the guard, which had at least 3 tour bus loads of guests, the line to get back on was ridiculous and a bus only shows up every 15-20 minutes. Our older friends waited in line and got on the 4th bus after an hour. The rest of us walked down the hill and boarded the subway for the Museum of Natural History. An hour and 45 minutes later our older friends showed up exhausted and exasperated. If it is worth $15 per person for a ride to the top of the hill, then do it, if not, don't bother.

We paid $37 for what amounted to a ride to the JFK gravesite. They said they were going to come back in 30 minutes and it was over an hour and they still hadn’t come back. By the time we walked back down the hill they were gone and already had our money. Save your money and walk to the top yourself. It was a waste of money and left a bad taste in our mouth.

A bit of a scam. Most of the route was closed so for $18 you basically get a ride to the JKF grave site. The ticket seller didn’t know what parts of the route was closed and we didn’t find out until after buying tickets and getting on the tram. Luca and learn…

Hello, The Arlington National Cemetery is an active cemetery that conducts 30-40 funerals per day. Portions of our tour route may be closed at certain times of the day in order for the funeral services to be conducted with the respect they are due. There are usually printed schedules that include route changes, due to services, located around the box office area. We apologize for any inconvenience.

This is a very nice way to see the grounds of the cemetary at a very reasonable price. If it's information and facts you want to learn about the cemetary, however, I would choose another tour. Although they gave you information, they talk so fast, before you turn to see one point of interest they've already gone onto two more. You can hop on and off as you please which is a plus....

I loved that we didn't have to walk the entire cemetery, but the narration was not great. Hard to hear, and information was kind of all over the place. I did hear "if you look to the left, you'll see a lone tall green tree". I can't remember what the tree was supposed to represent or memorialize, but it was near tons of other tall green trees so I had no idea what I was looking at. I felt this way for most of the ride. Seemed a little overpriced for the experience we got.

Would’ve been nice to see more signs giving sections locations. Water faucets power was to strong spraying out, got folks very wet, just trying to wet washcloth for cooling off. Nice for my husband and I to see what it could be like when we’re laid to rest. It was a wonderful experience. Will be back with other family members
