Half-Day Grand Tour of Washington DC

106 reviews
Avoid the stress of renting a car and navigating on your own on this bus tour of Washington DC. A guide provides entertaining historical context, as you pass more than 50 of the city’s iconic landmarks, including the White House, Capitol Building, Lincoln Memorial, and National Mall. Unlike most city bus tours, a small group size ensures you have the guide's full attention for questions and comments.

WATCH OUT FOR HARASSMENT/POTENTIAL HARM ON METRO!!!!!! These days due to the pandemic, Metro ridership is way down and many of those that travel on Metro aren't upstanding citizens. Unprovoked and out of the blue, I was minding my own business on a station platform when I was threatened with bodily harm by a BLM individual. It happened on a week day at 9:30 AM. It was a racial incident but fortunately nothing physically happened. I reported it to the Transit Police. There was not much they could do as the individual ran off. I was riding Metro to/from work. Avoid those Metro trains that go into North East and South East DC. I regularly use Metro and I've seen an uptick in "incidents" due to the racial unrest.

Seeing these behavioral instructions on the automated screens where literally a man is always inconveniencing a woman. I wonder who was in charge of this project....

With the weather being warm on a January Saturday ( in the 60's degree) I decided to be a tourist again in Washington, DC. The BEST and CHEAPEST way to visit tourist attractions is by Metro Subway System, complemented by buses and walking! Fares are cheaper on weekends and parking is FREE! Today, January 11, 2020, I visited 20 attractions and restaurants using Metro and DC Circulator Bus just for $6.00 plus some walking. Just needed a little planning to achieve this goal!

This was our first time in Washington DC. We stayed in Alexandria VA and after driving to the National Zoo we asked at the hotel desk how else there was to get around DC. The hotel shuttle took us to Huntington Station and dropped us off. We had no idea what we were doing. We went to the ticket counter and told the guys we were new to this and expected an eye roll and a few instructions from their side of the cage. NOPE! They were AWESOME! One of the guys came out gave us a station map and showed us how to navigate with it. Then showed us how to use the ticket vending machine and gave us options on daily and weekly passes. He was so nice! We were a bit intimidated at first but the Metros are clean and quick and easy to navigate and inexpensive we rode round trip for less than $20 from Huntington Station To Union Station for 2 people. By far the best way we found to get around the DC area! Thank You!
