These hop on buses are the best wat to see the city, good commentary too - great value
Excellent service and friendly staff, would highly recommend. Absolutely loved Washington and no better way to get around than on the Big Bus. Really enjoyed when they had a guide speaking on the Bus
The hop on hop off bus was great! Everyone had told me how there was so much walking in DC but with the bus, it was so convenient. The bus would drop you off at the designated stops and then when you're done, you go back to the same spot the bus dropped you off at to catch the next bus. The red loop bus comes every 20 minutes and it goes to all the popular places. Also, since it's hot outside, the bottom floor of the bus was great for the air-condition. When it rained, they gave everyone panchos. If you're on the top deck, you'll probably need to come down because a pancho can only help so much when it's pouring.
I would definitely recommend this bus. It's so convenient and worth the price. I did the 48 hour tour since it was only about $10 more for the extra day and it included entrance into the wax museum, the crime and punishment museum and the riverboat on the potomac (I didn't have time to do the boat unfortunately). Great value!
If your time is limited in Washington DC, this is the tour you want! Even if your time is not limited, this is the tour you want to take. We saw more than we planned. We only had a day so we didn't get off the bus very much. Samuel, our tour guide, did a wonderful job!! We took the red line first and came back to Union Station, ate lunch, and took the blue line to Arlington Cemetery. DON'T MISS THIS - the changing of the guards was so amazing!! Looking over all the grave sites brought tears to our eyes. It was truly the best money we've ever spent on a tour. B/T/W.....we thought it would be really hot sitting on the top deck of the bus, but we were pleasantly surprised! People boarded the bus at several stops selling ice cold water which was appreciated! Everyone was so helpful and nice. Highly recommend!!
What a great way to see the sights in DC... if I had to do it again I'd go for the 48 hour pass. Next time I'll also try the night tour. If you only have a few days to see the sights try this hop on hop off tour. Everyone was super friendly and this was a great way to see the sights and stay cool and give your feet a brief rest. The kids LOVED riding on top! Just don't forget your sunscreen!
I loved the tour. All drivers and guides were great. But desiree (SP) WAS THE GREATEST. We saw her several times and she is great. Very kind and kniwledgable. Loved her.
It was wonderful. The young lady at your counter, Kaneeka R, was very helpful. Please give her my thanks. You have a extra fine organization. Thanks again. George Davis
So easy. Good locations. Everywhere u need to see. Easy pick up and drop off
We were able to see all the major sites plus got free admission to 5 attractions ...the live person commentary was great and the recorded commentary was also informative...the personnel were friendly, courteous and helpful.
It was a very pleasant day with having quick view of DC places using Hop-On Hop-Off bus. I wish I could stay longer to hop off more and see more museums and historical buildings. But, it gave me an excellent overview and also good idea for the next trip.
This was a great option for sightseeing at an affordable price. I love the idea of being able to hop on and off and different locations and routes. We will be back for the summer with the kids. WDC has a lot of history that everyone should explore.
