My family has visited D.C. many times but this is the first time we decided to do a tour instead of walking around ourselves. The tour was great. It definitely offered a different take on the attractions around the city. Now the trolley isn't air...More

OK. Drivers were friendly. Information was so so. SOme things they told us were incorrect. Recommend you take a tour at the beginning of your trip. It will help you plan your visit better. Only an average tour.

Just returned from a DC trip with our grandson. We purchased the DC Trolley tour based on tripadvisor rating. Found that due to the tours not starting until 9 AM and ending at 5 PM daily, there really was not enough time to take advantage...More

We had taken an Old Town Trolley tour a few years ago in St. Augustine and really enjoyed it, so we decided to try it here in DC. We actually ended up doing a normal day tour as well as a Monuments by Moonlight tour....More

not bad for around $15. The guides are good, it's hot and a good way to learn about take a break from walking.

I had previously visited and experienced a disappointing (previously reviewed) competitor's hop on hop off bus tour - but this was much better. It was well organised, the stops were well signed and the guide (Quick) was excellent. The stops are excellently located for the...More

I'm not exactly sure. No one on my tour had a service animal but I would assume they are welcome. I didn't see any reason that would prevent it.

We purchased tickets from home on the internet which was cheaper. We used it as a stay-on ride to see all of DC. We used the Uber for the rest of our transportation. Uber was much more convenient, faster, and very safe.
