My family and I so enjoyed our 2 day tour package and would highly recommend it. We had a great tour guide, Alex from Russia, who did the whole tour without a working microphone and had a great deal of knowledge about the day tour around the Capital. We did all the tour lines and the night tour but did not have a guide for any of the other tours. It was a shame to see that this company did not provide guides to share information about the sites. Overall with was really fun.

We had a 48 hour and a night tour. All the drivers and tour guides were not only very knowledgeable and humorous to make our journey more enjoyable they were very courteous and very polite. Because of the bus tour we saw everything. We highly recommend them to everyone. Thank you hop-on-hop off.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2016

Perfect way to see all the sights, we had the 48 hour pass so managed a night time view of the monuments - well worth the extra.

Friendly drivers. Love that we were able to hop on and off. Visited Georgetown. Drive told us he would be back at a designated time - showed up a few minutes early and we continued on our journey. Would be nice if there was a recorded English voice for all the landmarks.
