Taking a tour bus of trolley definately beats walking. DC is very hot in the summer and monuments and attractions are not close enough to consider walking the entire downtown area. Trolly is open, so view is not obstructed and there is a breeze. If it rains hard, they can lower plastic to keep rain out. Couple of driver/guides were... More

Just recently took the hop on hop off tour around the mall and downtown Washington DC. We had 4 different tour drivers who were all wonderful, energetic and enthusiastic. They told great stories with humor and information. Our only issue was we couldn't find bus stop #2 - where we were starting our tour. It said White House Welcome center... More

Always have my guests tour the city this way. Parking is horrible in DC. They can get an overview and decide where they would like to spend more time.

Great way to see Washington and to get a range of insights from the various drivers. We bought the 2 day extended ticket and did the whole orange and green tours as well as to go to specific places- like Georgetown. We didn't have time to go to Arlington ( we had been before and it is well worth making... More

Excellent way to see the sights in Washington and Arlington, the staff were very informative and great fun. Your ticket allows you to get on and off all day so saves a lot of walking in the heat, not to be missed, don't forget your camera.

This tour picked up right in front of our hotel (the Mayflower) and took us to the National Cathedral on the green line. This was so convenient. We then switched to the orange line and toured the rest of DC and got off at the monuments. Traffic can be so bad and parking is non-existent, so this is the best... More

Awesome. Great way to see everything and catch tons of Pokémon opportunities. Just Joe was our tour guide and did a wonderful job adding historical facts and trivia questions along the way!

The tour in savannah, Georgia was excellent. So we based it on that we would have a good tour this time. The bus was late in different spots and some spots did not have a sign to say where to be picked up. Some guides were good and some sucked. Overall it was an ok experience.
