Good tour once the bus fiasco was figured out

Our tour guide was amazing. Very knowledgeable. Loading the bus was a bit of a fiasco. We met at the meeting point, boarded the coach bus with nice plush seats, and phone chargers. Only to be told at 7:05pm (when your was supposed to begin at 7) that we were switching to an open top bus tour with a limited number of seats that are covered below. The tour advertised “glass rooftop” tour. Not open bus. It was a chilly night. Although dry, we hit bushes that were soaked with rain and slapped is in the face. Also, the experience promised a 3.5 hr tour and it was just shy of 3. I would take it again, but should be noted if it’s an open top Bus as several people were unprepared for the wet and cold open top Bus.

Knowledgeable live guides and punctual pick up times

Was going to use Circulator, but found out BigBus stopped outside our hotel. It was so hot (90 degrees) so we opted for tickets. We were well pleased with the pick up punctuality compared to our experience in Philly. We used the tracking app and it was pretty accurate. Stop info was enough to give us an idea of what each attraction offered. Particularly we enjoyed the live tour guide (can't remember her name) but she was super knowledgeable and had many close ties to the area. My 14 year old grandson was so impressed with her knowledge he was thinking he would like to be a guide. He loves history and geography.

Mr. History was our tour guide - he and whole tour were amazing!

Our tour was incredible and Mr. History our guide was so engaging! He made what we were seeing come alive and we learned so many facts and background information that we did not know. He also gave our son a chance to say the Gettysburg Address to everyone - what a great impression on an 11 year old boy! Thanks for a great opportunity!

One of the best ways to explore Washington

Our tour guide was very knowledgable, told us funny facts and the bike tour was on a good pace. We highly recommend this tour.

Bus schedule is somewhat of a constraint.

We found ourselves having to make some decisions around what we did and when based on the last pickups and where we were.
