Very easy hop on/ hop off service. Trolleys run about every 30 minutes so you can visit an attraction and get back on. Tour guides are very competent, friendly, and talkative. The trolley is open air, but covered. On our very hot day, being out of the sun was a big plus. Plan to start early. The tours start at... More

MJ was our tour guide who really made the tour fun along with the sightseeing. We were picked up and returned to our hotel which made it nice after a long day of sightseeing.

We did a short sunset tour on day 2 of a visit to DC. It is a bit pricely, but it's worth it to not walk as much and to see the monuments. There were certain monuments we wanted to see and we had already spent day 1 of our trip walking over 15 miles so we were ready for... More

Great way to see the beautiful historic seaside town. Things close early, so see the museums first---the shop, eat and cruis the Potomac river

It took us ages to do a tour. The route doubles up and at times walking is faster that taking the trolley bus We waited at stops only to have the trolley drive by without stopping. Phoning the office resulted in no help as we were told to wait. I will not do this again.

Loved the hop on and off of this tour. We bought a two day ticket which was well worth the cost.We first rode it around the whole orange loop just to see where it stopped and to listen to the tour guide and then decide where we wanted to go since our time was limited on the first day. We... More

The hop on hop off bus is a must for first timers to Washington DC. You get a great tour of the city and all the highlights and can then use the bus to go back and get off and see what you want.

Purchased a two day pass with the visit to Arlington National Cemetery. We paid $160 for three of us on Friday, July 22, 2016 about 1 pm. The trolleys stop running at 5 pm so by the time we ran through the first couple of stops and hopped off at the Space/Air Museum, it was about time to head back... More

Unlike tours we took in other US and Canadian cities run by a competitor we were very impressed by the service. As we used the tour as a hop-on hop-off bus we came across several of their driver-guides, all of them were extremely knowledgeable and pleasant. They all were super careful reminding passengers to take care when boarding and alighting.... More
