We took both the Moonlight Tour and the hop on hop off tour the next day. Both were excellent. Washington is beautiful at night. We made stops at the Lincoln Memorial, MLK, and Iwo Jima. The tour was three hours. Our guide, Smiley, was informative and entertaining. The next day we had four other guides who were just as informative... More

Seemed like the trolley came pretty regularly, never found myself waiting. Make sure you don't accidentally take the green line that goes a bit further. Take the orange line if you want to stay where all the famous sites are. Tour guides were mediocre, didn't share too many interesting facts and seemed to stick to general things I think most...

Wow! The drivers/guides with the Old Town Trolley Tours have been amazing. We have enjoyed the information each has provided but especially enjoyed Mr. History! Very informative and a great way to get around town.

I was recently in DC for work and a group of us attended the Moonlight Monument Tour. Not only did we get to visit some amazing monuments but we also learned some pretty incredible history facts. Mr. Holiday was a wonderful tour guide!

We visited DC in mid November which l understand is not the height of the tourist season. There are not enough buses to service their customers. They advertise that a bus stops every 30 minutes. This may be the case, but you are not guaranteed to get on. We made several stops and there were many cases were customers could... More

We spent two days on the trolley and did both lines to see different parts of the city including Arlington Cemetary where we had to book a special tour. Easy to use, trolley drivers very friendly and professional. Each driver showcases his own personality while passing on all kinds of history and facts. I would give them a gold star.

Nice Hop On-OFF bus tour of key highlights of DC. The Capitol, Botanical Garden, MANY Smithsonian Museums, Washington Monument, Jefferson Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, FDR Memorial, Vietnam Wall, Korean War Memorial, White House. Pick it up at the Union Station. Combine with the Moonlight Monuments tour and it's a great overview of DC with some on-off ability. The driver/narrator that you... More
