Smiley, our driver, was a highlight of the tour. Wear comfy shoes and bring a sweater; you will be hopping off and on the trolley at many stops. This is a great way to get pictures during less crowded times.

This was a great tour and the monuments were beautiful at night. The cart tour allowed us to save our feet and still enjoy the beautiful monuments. The tour guide also pointed out other important landmarks and buildings around the National Mall.

The above is correct. You are able to get off the trolley to see these monuments whereas some of the other tours just drive by them. This was well worth it and if you’re going to be there all day, I suggest the combo package... More
