I took the hop on hop off evening tour. It was a great experience. You get a nice introduction and history lesson of several monuments, memorials, buildings. Also you get a lot of information about D.C. You don't get to spend much time at each place and some places you don't even get to stop at. But you get to... More

Just back from Washington and did two of the Old Town Trolley Tours, the standard hop-on, hop-off and the Monuments by Moonlight. Have used this company before in other cities and they've never failed to deliver. Really helpful & friendly staff and the drivers are great - funny & informative. Special mentions to Sooner Steve (& Elijah), Aaron, Jamie and... More

So let me start by saying that I’ve been to DC 5 times and I’ve seen most of the monuments. And I can’t stand tours. But our kids wanted to go so I agreed to go as long as we did Monuments by Moonlight. And boy am I happy we did! Our tour guide was Sunny and she had so... More

While the guides were very informative when we were able to get on the trolleys, the wait to board an available trolley was frustrating. A good deal of our limited time in DC was spent waiting for a trolley to take us to the next site. The Arlington Cemetery tour (which is part of the 2 day package) return shuttle... More

If you have never been to D.C. this is the only way to truly enjoy all the sights.I suggest the two day tour because there is so much to see and you won't be able to do everything.You need to decide what things you will hop off for.

A nice way to get an introduction to many main sites in DC. Can get off, to visit a site, eat, etc. Avoids parking hassles. Very helpful drivers explain main features, buildings, monuments, memorials, etc. Some drawbacks: heavy traffic can slow the 'tour'; some waiting, but usually brief, for a 'trolley'; our first trolley driver was a terrific narrator but...

The Old Town Trolley Tours of Washington DC is a bit on the pricy side, but very informative & gives you a good overview of what there is to see on the Washington Mall and in the area. You can get off and on as often as you want, and it sure beats walking, especially if it is hot. It... More
