Perfect for getting around at your own pace. Informative driver/guide

The Old Town Trolley makes a constant loop around the major sights in D.C. Get on or off at your own pace - excellent way to set your own schedule and have an informative, entertaining, knowledgeable driver/guide on every bus. With a map of all the stops, you can see the major "must see" places in D.C. at a very comfortable pace. The buses were clean, comfortable, safe, and enjoyable. Best experience. I have been to D.C. 19 times in my life - I took someone with me who had never been to D.C. with me this time and the Old Town Trolley was perfect for entertaining and informing a first time visitor - I will get tickets for the Trolley every time I go back.

Mt. Vernon - not enough time to enjoy the mansion/grounds

Not enough upfront information - had to call twice to find location of the boat as telephone number on the e-ticket was incorrect therefore received wrong info. Called another number night before the tour and fortunately Cassandra was most helpful giving the correct info. Luckily we were staying on The Wharf had we been staying across town things would not have worked out. Also no indication that the boat trip took 1-1/2 hrs each way not leaving enough time to fully enjoy the mansion and gardens.

Great experience and value (time & money wise)! Highly recommend!!!!!

Tour Guide Josh was AWESOME. As a second generation tour guide, he was so knowledgeable and engaging. He did a fabulous job!! Driver Thomas provided a safe and comfortable ride, even providing ice cold bottled water on a very hot August day! We would never have gotten to all these places on our own, or learned as much. An excellent experience at a very affordable price. So glad we took this tour - great way to experience DC!

My friend from Paris loved it as well as I.

Our intention was to just ride the loop around the monuments. We had very limited time to hop on and off, but I am sure it would have been very nice. It was rainy early on, but then it became very nice later. The ride hit all the places she wanted to see "just like on TV as she said! We had a lovely day in DC and even had time to shop for a souvenir or two for her to take back to France.

Washington, DC: Hop-On Hop-Off Trolley City Tour Reviewed by


Exceptional, well executed tour of the most prominent historic and modern monuments. Guide was well informed, knowledgeable and presented with clear concise diction; Information was presented on the bus prior to departure allowing an independent exploration of each of the monument visits --an ideal combination respecting the individual tourist interest. WELL DONE NICK!
