Tour was good....but the heat made it difficult. Wish the bus had air conditioning. Tour guides were informative.

Our family of six enjoyed the convenience of transportation and explanation using the Big Bus for our WA DC tour. The bus stops were easy to access from the monuments and other site locations. Our night tour guide was very well researched and entertaining! We found Union Station, where you have to start your tour the first time and the night tour, to be a good spot for a lunch or coffee/pastry - also easy to access by metro or train.

The lady who did the verbal run down wasnt professional, too much about her personal life not enough history. The male driver wouldnt give us a card, he said we were good but find someone else to help us. A prerecorded run down would of been preferable. We had a two day with night tour and we skipped the rest. We have down hop on hop off Big bus in 4 other places, it was much better there.

The bus was very convenient . And we were able to see most of the sights. The narrator was very good.

The Big Bus tour is a great way to get a quick introduction to the many great sites in Washington DC. There are three major routes covering the most popular attractions in DC. Each bus has a live narrator who describes major sites along the route. There are designated stops along the route to allow passengers to disembark to investigate a site in depth, and to pick up passengers who want to continue along the bus route. My recent trip took place during Memorial Day Weekend. Tourism and traffic was so heavy that the 3 Big Bus routes were combined into a purple route and re-routed to avoid the heavy crowds at the National Mall. The Big Bus Hop-On Hop-Off Tour is a relaxing way to see DC.

the big bus was good on the day trips. The night trip was real good. With all of it was waiting in line , the worst was towards end of day we waited for three busses to finally get on.

The Night Tour was amazing especially because of the tour guide, Nur! He was energetic and so knowledgeable! He didn’t make it like a lecture. He made funny jokes and shared personal experiences. He stayed clear of any political statements. I would recommend the night tour to everyone because DC is gorgeous in the evening! And hopefully you’ll get Nur as your tour guide!

We did the day and night city tour, so much to see in Washington. The tour guides are excellent.
