Bought a 2 day pass, got the Night Tour for free with it. Sana was guide for night tour, excellent guide. Has great knowledge of sites, very entertaining. Most guides were good (not all), employees courteous and friendly.

I really enjoyed these tours. On the red and blue lines there are individual posts that guide the tour. Mr. Lee was terrific very knowledgeable it and well educated.I also enjoyed Marcel, he had a lot of his own opinions that some people may not agree with, but I really enjoyed the personal touch.

Donita our tour guide was really great, giving lots of information and a few gems along the way - she was also on our night tour which really was amazing. Vern was also fab and we were sad we'd chosen that part of the trip to hop off and visit the museums. The deluxe tour is well worth it for... More

We had a blast and one of our tour guides was awesome! The open top bus was nice and we were given ponchos when it rained! Word to the wise sit on the left side. You'll have to duck still but not as often!

The stops and routes are placed to help you see the most sites for your money, but for $49 per person it's almost better to Uber to the sites you're interested in seeing. Good experience overall.

Our guide, Chris, and our driver, Tony, were excellent! Chris had a great sense of humor which he injected into the historical content. He taught us a lot of history and was easily understood. He was clear and concise with his directions and the bus was always exactly where he said it would be when he said it would be.... More

Convenient and fun - Saves the headaches of trying to park and knowing where to go - it was also informative - when you get off near the monuments there is some walking but it is an easy walk

We purchased a 2 day tour which also included all 3 loops and the night tour. It was a good way to learn about many of the sights in a short period of time. We bought our tickets online to save a bit of money. The weather was very warm when we were there, but we still enjoyed sitting on... More
