Of course our tour guides varied as we got on and off our business thus prompting our experience to very greatly. One guide we had was a personable woman who appeared to know very little about what we were seeing and another gentleman spoke well and told us a lot about each a very building. Overall the tour was pretty... More

I did the D.C. Trails hop on hop off during the day and night (Saturday March 25). The night tour was incredible and our guide, Henry, was phenomenal. He was so passionate about everything and made me tear up a couple times because what he was telling us was so beautiful. Definitely recommend Henry! It was his birthday and he... More

Stuck in traffic, is more like it. Rent a bike or any thing else. Not good directions at all wandered around for half hour looking for stop. Way over priced

We really enjoyed our hop on hop off tour. Both our tour guide, Henry, and driver Sanchez were excellent. We took the daytime tour the first day and went on the twilight tour the second day and they were both fantastic! Henry did an excellent job describing what we were seeing and made it interesting, especially with his jokes! We... More

Took the DC twilight tour. Loved it. Best part of our trip. Would recommend this, especially if Henry is your guide. He was freindly, fun, entertaining and very knowledgeable. Will take the trip again when we go back.

My girlfriend and I bought a 48 hour pass and discovered a night tour came with it. Little did we know the greatest of all tour guides was waiting. Henry was the most knowledgeable and passionate guide imaginable, he knew his facts and his delivery was comical, the entire bus laughed at his jokes and made us feel not like... More

I booked with DC Trails based on their reviews and as they were the one company who had a singular loop that included Arlington. Unfortunately this was not the case and we needed to get off to wait for a shuttle to Arlington. This wasted a LOT of time (on an extremely cold day) going there, getting back and getting... More

We found a Groupon coupon and decided to try this tour instead of walking around DC, since it was so cold. Our guide was very informative and funny. A great way to get more information about the buildings and monuments before you get off the bus and explore. We did have to wait a little longer than we thought for... More

We had limited time in DC so we needed a way to take it all in within a 2 day time period. We found DC Trails on Groupon and the deal was perfect for us. It included the Twilight tour as well. So we did the 2 hour day tour which included all of the important sites. We got off... More

The good and the bad. We waited well over 45 minutes for the bus at several different stops in rainy, cold 39 degree weather. Meanwhile, the competition, Big Red Bus and Old Town Trolley came by at a rate of 2 to one. We were only able to ride it 3 times and stopped at 5 of the advertised 22... More
