My wife and I like to do a recon trip to a new city if we think there is enough there to warrant future trips to that city. With a huge number of attractions, DC fits that description very well. To try to decide what we wanted to see on future trips, we chose the trolley tour and were very glad we did.
First, the fact that they have shuttles that pick up at local hotels was a big plus. They picked up at the Hyatt around the corner from our hotel in Crystal City so that together with our own hotel's shuttles meant that we had no transportation costs for our stay.
We did all three routes, around Georgetown, the Mall, and Arlington Cemetery. We stopped at the Jefferson and Lincoln Monuments, and got to see the changing of the guard at Arlington. It made for a very full day and gave us a ton of ideas about future attractions we want to see.
I would be remiss if I did not mention the drivers. Very nice, informative, and quite entertaining is the norm and they left us with the desire to visit again soon. One tip, they roll up the plexiglass once the weather is warm enough so taking pictures off the bus is better then.
