We traveled via Amtrak to Washington DC; our Old Trolley Tour tickets were included with our vacation package. What a fun time! No car needed with the trolley tour, plus the narration made everything come to life. Our driver was personable and had much information to share along the way. Everything on the trolley was clean; the use of masks were required as was the use of hand sanitizers. The open air concept made me feel safer than riding a bus with confined space. If you want to go to see our nation's capital, I highly recommend taking an Old Town Trolley Tour. They are proof that we can travel safely during the Covid-19 outbreak.

This hop on - hop off tour was great for us! It stops at many attractions in the DC area. I thought the price was very reasonable. We rarely had to wait very long for the next trolley. Riding this trolley made it easy to see many attractions in one day. The drivers we had were bottomless pits of interesting information and trivia. They were friendly, funny and informative.

I regret that I made this purchase. I should have saved my money for Uber rides. Very long wait times for pickup and it is a cold ride inside the bus in the off season. In the past we used the same company in Savannah and it was a great experience but not in D.C. The bus drivers were knowledgeable and all were very nice. I would save my money in the off season and just use the City bus line if I could do it over again.

"Great Way to Spend the Day! "

Reviewed January 02, 2020
We loved that this trolley took us to all the top sights to visit in D.C. We did a similar one in Boston, so we knew were going to do it again! My only issue is that we were given tickets for the water taxi to Georgetown, and when we got there, we found out they were closed Jan/Feb. It did say on our tickets that information, however I never would have thought to even look because we were given the tickets in the first place. But truly that was a small detail. Overall, it was great! It saves time and your feet! Plus, some great info on the way!
