5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2017

This was a last minute decision for us to take a trolley tour of DC. We only had the one day and wanted to definitely see some sites around the US Capital city. It was a great experience from beginning to end. The instructions are concise and simple to follow. We parked at the Arlington Cemetery and made our way to the orange line. We got out at the Lincoln Memorial, White House and Capital Hill. We toured the Capital Building which takes about 1-1.5 hours. We did not have time to tour the Library of Congress nor the other landmarks as we were pressed for time. This is a tour that you could easily spread over 2-5 full days depending on what you were going to want to visit and tour on the route. At the very least take the tour to take amazing pictures of each attraction and then plan a wonderful tour and vacation for the next time. We will be coming to DC again and using the Trolley Tour company as the employees are friendly, knowledgeable, humorous and take pride in what they do.

My daughter and 2 grandkids ages 10 and 12 really enjoyed the luxury of being able to get on and off the trolley. We found all of the drivers we had were very knowledgable and friendly.

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.

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.
