This was a good way to see the city. The guides were very knowledgeable of the area. One thing to note is the Arlington stop is a shuffle and additional fee. I would recommend just skipping this while on the tour and take an Uber/taxi...More

They usually pick people up from hotel if you are staying in D/C. Also you can park by their office at 420 L'Enfant Plaza, cost per day is around $20.
I have tickets for the June 4, 2017 twilight tour and am wondering if I can get picked up near where we are staying?
