This tour is a MUST for anyone, like ourselves, who go to DC for the first time. Or the second or third time. It's a great way to get an overview of the city, what's where, and visits monuments, Arlington, etc. The tour map was easy to understand and helped us get our bearings. But the best part was our driver/storyteller - Adam Johnson. He was so entertaining and well informed. We learned things about people and events in history we would probably never have known on a typical tour of places. Adam was so good we stayed on his trolley for 2 1/2 loops so we didn't "loose him". Our other trolley drivers were good (we'd gotten off twice before getting on his trolley), but they were not as entertaining and knowledgeable as Adam. The price, the places the trolley goes, the ease to book and get on and off all made this one of the highlights of our week in DC.
Friendly, courteous and very well informed staff made for a great introduction to the delights of DC.
Very knowledgeable staff. I would recommend for someone taking this tour to stay on the trolley the whole way around to where you first started getting all the information before hand and then you will have a better idea of what you really want to see and can take the trolley to those specific stops. Great tour..
This is a great way to cover a big area. Loved going to Georgetown and Arlington.
Great experience. They should include approximate times when to expect the next trolley. It wasn't clear that we had arrived at the Lincoln Memorial, it seemed that the driver was being nice by letting some people off near where they wanted to go. It wasn't till we turned around that was where I should have gotten off. No matter the National Cathedral was fair compensation though. The drivers were very courteous, entertaining and knowledgeable. Be sure to have gratuity handy, the on off is so quick I missed some.
Wonderful time. Sorry that the government was on shutdown at the time, but enjoyed seeing what we saw. Great guides, especially the one we started and ended with.
The trolly Bus Tours over the three days we were in Washington were great always helpful considering we were caught up in the Govt Shutdown. Teacher Fran was outstanding as a driver she really knows her city, but in saying that all the drivers were really informative and very helpful. You have great staff on board which really makes a difference to our overall stay as a tourist. We did post of the rating form which is on the back of the receipt from Dallas. Hopefully you have received it. If we ever return to Washington and I hope we do one day we will be using your tour one more time. Again many thanks for making our stay in Washington DC so wonderful.

Excellent tour guides, Gary and Sooner Steve, really enjoyed trip
The buses were in great condition the tour guides were excellent I would only suggest that you start out early we didn't or able to get on three different buses each driver had a great personality and knew the city well
The DC Hop on Hop off Trolley Tour saved our trip. Unfortunately our government was shut down while we were there so a traditional trip wasn't an option. So we expanded our trip to include more than museums and found that it was the best trip ever. We saw way more than we would have otherwise seen, used public transportation and walking more and got a real insiders view thanks to delightful and knowledgeable tour guides. Everyone from our first bus driver to the kids in the gift shop were helpful, full of enthusiasm for the city and very welcoming. I would highly suggest this as a way to start any trip to DC. They told me things I didn't know and I went to school there a million years ago. Great trip. Awesome tour and well worth the money.
GREAT WAY TO SEE THE AREA. DRIVERS KNOW WHEN BEST PHOTO ANGLES ARE COMING
Excellent tour experience. Drivers very knowledgeable. Their commentry was mingled with some welcome humour.
The Hop-on-Hop-off Trolley was one of the best decisions we made on our trip to DC. We absolutely loved the drivers! They were so knowledgeable and informative. They treated us with courtesy and respect. Some of the drivers were so funny we talked about them on our way home. I have walking problems and the without the trolley we would not have been able to see everything we had on our list. It is totally worth every penny we spent.
