    What to Expect
    Redeem your 48-hour bus voucher at Union Station, where your sightseeing tour begins around Washington DC by double-decker bus. You'll have access to two loops. 

    Hop on and off at the numerous stops to explore at your own pace, and choose one to five attractions and activities including Newseum, the International Spy Museum, Madame Tussauds DC, the National Ferry, a Myths and Misconceptions Walking Tour, National Geographic Museum or a daylong bike rental to further explore the city. There's no need to select which of these sights and activities you'd like to do in advance — allowing you maximum flexibility.

    Listen to live commentary on board as you pass DC landmarks such as the White House, US Capitol, Jefferson Memorial, Ford's Theatre and Arlington National Cemetery. You can see the Washington Monument and more lit up after dusk on a narrated night bus tour.

    No complaints. Definitely the best way to get around and see everything! Wish the buses came more frequently but waiting wasn't too bad.

    Look at other options. CitySights utilizes Big Bus DC. It wasn't awful but wasn't great either. The CitySights kiosk didn't explain a thing to us. Gave us the wrong tickets and couldn't get it corrected without a lot of hassle. Never did fix it but...More
