Easy way to see many sights. Can spend as much time in areas that are if more interest to you. Arlington was amazing. All drivers were knowledgeable and helpful.

This was a great way to get around DC with knowledgeable drivers and a good variety of places to hop on/hop off.

Narrated tour helped us get our sense of direction on our first day in town. Water shuttle ride on the Potomac was relaxing. Bus into Arlington Cemetery took all the quess work out of figuring how to get across the bridge. Would recommend taking this bus tour on your first or second day in town.

From choosing the Holiday Inn, Rhode Island Avenue and being able to get transportation everywhere. The trolley picked us up at the Holiday Inn and we didn't need to move our car or ride Metro at all. The State Capitol building tour was better than the White House. You need to see the Library of Congress....amazing. Trip home via GPS was uneventful and leaving D C after noon was best time to avoid traffic

We spent 5 hours at the Smithsonian Museum of African American History and Culture. When we left we were tired but definitely wanted to see more of DC. We got on the trolley near the museum and saw even more than we had anticipated. Don't expect to get a good view of the white house from the trolley. But you can always hop off to walk closer and catch the next trolley. The trolley was clean and the tour guide was very informative with a great sense of humor. I highly recommend this trolley tour for those that wear themselves out but still want their trip to be worth it.

This tour was great! We left on a very nice charter bus and our tour guide Deon gave a lot of great information on the way to Mt. Vernon. On the way to Mt Vernon we stopped at George Washington’s church. We were given a lot of info and were able to tour the church and grounds. We even got to sit in George Washington’s booth in the church. When we reached Mt Vernon we had some time to look around before our tour of Washington’s house. It was amazing to see where our Founding Father lived and died. After the tour we had time to walk the grounds to see the beautiful views, Washington’s grave, and tour the museum of his life. We ate at the cafeteria because we wanted something simple and quick but would’ve loved to eat the restaurant. I felt the amount of time there was perfect. It’s so nice to be able to just park and get on the bus. We can enjoy the sites and get info about them without the hassle of driving through the traffic. Definitely recommend!!!
