Highlights
    What to Expect
    Spanning 624 acres (253 hectares), Arlington National Cemetery is the final resting place for many American heroes, including more than 400,000 military veterans and their families from every American conflict, starting from the Civil War.

    With this hop-on hop-off trolley, visit the most notable graves and memorials, and learn about the cemetery’s history from an onboard guide. Board the hop-on hop-off trolley at any of the six designated sites (see below for a list of stops).

    Hop off to explore sites by foot and pay homage to America’s fallen heroes. Visit the Eternal Flame, where President John F Kennedy is laid to rest beside his wife, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

    Your hop-on hop-off pass is valid for one full loop, letting you take in the poignancy of Arlington National Cemetery at a relaxed pace. Trolleys depart every 20 minutes throughout the day, and the whole loop takes 45 minutes (weekdays) or 1 hour (weekends).

    You may board the trolley at any of the following six stops:
    • US Marine Corps War Memorial
    • President John F Kennedy Gravesite
    • US Coast Guard Memorial
    • General John J Pershing Gravesite
    • Memorial Amphitheater
    • Robert E Lee Memorial

    This was a nice, informative tour. Very organized, and such a beautiful location. I brought my 13 year old with me, and I think she enjoyed the tour, too.

    We went on the tour August 26th. All tour guides were exceptional until the last guide called Chris. We found him to be offhand and to be honest disinterested. A disappointing end to a respectful and informative tour.

    You can purchase Hop On Hop off for Arlington on line however you need to get to Arlington first and after you enter the main gate you get on it there, It is well worth it to get around the cemetery in a shorter time frame .
