Explore Washington DC's highlights and landmarks on a hop-on hop-off trolley tour that includes stops at the White House, Smithsonian, and Lincoln Memorial. The trolley goes through Arlington National Cemetery (if option is selected), too, which many similar tours don’t cover or enter. Move at your own pace with the ability to hop-off and explore any of the stops according to your interests and schedule.
