great value. it included all the things we wanted to do that were not free
The pass is really useful. It can be picked up before the date that you wish to use it. I did the Spy Museum, Crime Museum and the Newseum in 1 day as they were close together
Used the pass and saved heaps on entry some attractions gimmicky but overall very good value
was very poor in getting are bus pass it toke 4-hour to get the pack ,plus we walked alll over washington,dc. to be bus pass,because we was sent to the wrong place to get the pass
it was realy so great, i loved it, and this card saved me a lot of money. i highly recommend it .. and the boat tripp was realy so nice..
It was easy to receive and use the pass. The fundamental concept is good but to get the most out of it you should prepare yourself concerning the costs for various attractions. Many museums are free anyway so you really should check what kind of attractions you are looking for before you buy the pass. Otherwise you may safe not that much money as you expect in advance.
the problem with these power passes are the usual:
it includes places that are free anyway eg the shopping centre at tysons corner a lame secret free gift is offered
lots of places require a car to get to them
there was considerable overlap with for example the trolley tour and the open top tour
some of the activities involve the whol,ke day for example the mount vernon cruise option leaving little time to avail yourself of other inclusions in order to make the card purchase financilally wortwhile
to activate the open top you had to make your way to a location a good walk from where you took up the open top tour
activating the whole thing had to be done at acity location but not, inexplicably at union station so this wasted time also
I enjoyed washington but cannit say i thought the powerpass was either good value OR an efficient use of time
Very worthwhile pass to have as we saved quite a lot of money and is easy to use.
I didn't get the full usage of my 3day pass because the wax Museum that was listed as one of the 2 pick up points did not have power passes and left us unable to enter other places without the power pass.We had to reschedule the other events for the next day.
You can save a LOT of money with this one! The trick is to have the stamina to do it all in a short period of time! The Crime and Punishment Museum and I Spy Museum are GREAT and well worth the 20 each. The Hop on Hop Off Trolly is also a great buy to help you get around to all the other site you will see. The Duck Tour isn't the best, but it was very informative and fun. The Newseum is also a good learning expereince. I was able to do these 5 in 2 days. Also, when I got my trolly pass on the second day, they gave me a 2 day pass from then, so that was good too.
This pass is excellent value for money! Only thing is that with the hop on hop off trolley tour you need to go to their welcome centre each day to validate your powerpass.
Need to have more information on the things that are available. I did not know that the DC Movie and TV tour only was available on Saturdays. Also need to let people know that they will be charged international charges which I did not know.

If we had gone to all the attractions that we planned, it would have been a great value. It's important to cost out what you expect to do and compare.
