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.

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.

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!

A wonderful FULL tour of D.C. & Arlington Cemetery

Although there were a few glitches due to the Cherry Blossom Festival, the bus drivers and all customer service staff really worked hard to make our trip enriching. If you come to D.C. during a really popular time of year, put some extra time into your day... it is not a bus drivers fault when the traffic is at a dead stop!

The cruise and tour of Mount Vernon was a highlight of our Washington,

We toured Mount Vernon and cruised with our four grandchildren and their parents. The experience was a highlight of our Washington, D.C. sojourn. The docents throughout the Mansion added much to the tour. We highly recommend this excursion.
