We booked this tour based on great reviews and the fact our small daughter loves travelling on open topped buses. We arrived at L’Enfant plaza to start the tour and were really disappointed to see that of the three buses that were lined up waiting, two of them were closed top buses. All the advertising shows open topped buses so I was under the impression that this is what we would be getting. We opted to wait half an hour until the open top bus would be in service. The route is good and includes all the main attractions DC has to offer. However, the sound on our bus was really poor, resulting in the tour guide sounding really muffled so we couldn’t hear a lot of what she was saying. What we did hear was very factual and informative, but the guide lacked the charisma and anectodal stories we’ve experienced on bus tours in other cities. It was fine, but I wouldn’t rave about it.

Me, my sister, and my dad sat in the front of the bus and had a wonderful time because Charles Smith is a magnificent driver and tour guide!!! He made things very informative and educational while still keeping it interesting. Very professional and polite as well. My family lucked out with Charles Smith!

Khaled Ismael (Carl) was the absolute best driver ever! We had him all week for an 8th grade school trip to DC and he went above and beyond! Several people lost things and he found them. He became a counselor to our kids. Our trip would not have been the same without him. He was a true blessing!

Carl is an amazing driver for DC Trails. Made the Washington DC trip a positive experience for the group travel. A positive traveling atmosphere was created at all times. The needs of the passengers were attended at all times.

Love that they don’t sugarcoat Washington as a slave owner. Be sure to see the museum afterwards for more on that part of his history.
