This was a great way to see DC and the surrounding area. We had a choice of four tour loops since we were already staying in Georgetown, we opted for the red and blue loops, which took us to all of the must-see places including a trip past the Pentagon and over to Arlington National Cemetery. The buses come every 20 to 30 minutes and it was so easy to move from site to site at our own pace. The Big Bus is highly visible so you could see it approaching at each stop and staff were at every stop to answer questions and help us out.
Great tour, it was better than expected great views from the upper level of the tour bus. The people were very courteous and helpful.
The flexibility for different routes and experiencing the many different sites was incredible. The schedule even among heavy traffic was very close to right on. Would recommend to everyone visiting D.C. area.
Brilliant way to see around Washington, we booked for 48 hours and still didnt quite get to see everything. We also did night tour also. Live commentary was definitely better than the audio. Loads of bus stops to get on and off and we were fortunate there was a stop right outside our hotel.
It was a great way to see DC. The stops were well spaced. We definitely got our money's worth!
Really wonderful tour. We loved all the tour guides. The hop on hop off feature was wonderful. We never had to wait long for another bus to come by, and there was always room on the bus. I would definitely recommend this for anyone interested in touring Washington D.C.
knowledgeable tour guide transfers was great night tour was great some bus trouble day 2 but overall it was great
Great tour and great service provided by drivers and occasional tour guides. Very convenient hop on and hop off locations. Highly recommend this tour if you want to see the sights in DC and on a limited timeframe. Purchased the 48 hour tour and enjoyed it thoroughly. Buses run on schedule unless special event in city causes traffic backups.
Excellent trip! The Big Bus really helped us get around the city. Everything worked great.
Excellent deal - 2 days hop -on hop-off, bus stops at central locations, 4 different bus lines, you can get everywhere, additional bonuses: Free night tour, Free museum entrance, Free 1 Hr rent-a-bike and free coffee.
Bus tour was very good. drivers and guides were courteous, informative and helpful. It's a wonderful way to get to the different museums, gardens, historic statues and sites.
Wait times minimal. Easy to use and get access to points of interest.
We used the Big Bus for 3 days and really enjoy the experiences. The tour guides Vern Adams and Tom Thompson were excellent. The information shared was very informative and you can tell they have a strong passion for history and their job. I would strongly recommend using this method to see a lot of the great sights in DC.
We Loved the Tour. The Tour guides were very informative and had great personalities. It was very hot the two days of our tour but all went well.
Plenty of places to hop on and off. Every 20 minutes or so as they state. The guides were entertaining and very informative. We had a good experience. Nice of them to offer rain ponchos for when it rained... just wish I would have taken them up on it!!
Excellent tour.Very good value.guides were all very good.We were able to see all of Washington and the bus stopped very close to our hotel and it was very easy to do all the routes.
Enjoyed the tour. Traffic was very heavy on Memorial weekend not allowing access to certain areas. We will be back on a less crowded weekend.
This is a must. The guides, through free ear buds, give you the great history of Washington
DC. There is no need to fight the traffic and find parking.
We were even furnished rain ponchos during a storm. Only way to visit a big city. Am looking for more Big Bus tours when we travel
