5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2016

The driver was knowledgeable, kind and gave enough time in the stops or even stops for a couple of minutes so we could take nice pictures from the bus.

It was 95 while we were in Washington so the open windows and breeze helped with the heat. The narrative was well done and informative. In the future I'll check train stops to coincide with tour stops ahead of time.

It was a great tour. I got to see all the major sites in DC. I only wish I had more time to actually get off and see more things. I have taken the Hop-on Hop-off tours before in other cities and I highly recommend them.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

Great way to get around, we enjoyed our trips with Magic Mike, Godiva, Ms Kennedy had us in fits of laughter that we didn't want to get off.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

We loved this tour. The drivers were great...very informative and funny and kept our boys really engaged. It was a great way to see the city and get a lay of the land before and while exploring. Would highly recommend to families with kids, or anyone really.

Would recommend this mode of transportation to anyone interested in seeing all areas of the city and getting to outlying areas. Great bus drivers who knew so much history and the different areas to see.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

Great day! Brought back old memories when I visited the Wall and the tomb of the unknown soldier!
The drivers were exceptionally well versed and extremely humorous!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

Really great overview of DC - I actually wish I'd done the 2 day tour as then we could have hopped on and off. Narration was great and all sites were fully explained. I wish the Green Loop could have been slower, all the embassies and houses were so much to absorb!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

Our green line tour with Duke exceeded expectations and was absolutely terrific. The size of the trolley, pace, and engaging tour made this a great value and we left appreciative, entertained, and informed!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

I planned on using it more, but I ended up using it only one day, and only the green line. We walked the rest of the time. But...it was worth it. The driver was VERY NICE and we had an enjoyable time.
