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.

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!

This is a really useful and informative way to see a lot of the place and have a local expert fill in the blanks. It was convenient to be picked up right at the door of our hotel.

We chose to use Old Town Trolley for the on/off convienence like we have in the past in Savannah and St. Augustine. This was our first trip to DC and we figured out fast this wasn't the best option. For the tour itself, it was fine to get an overall view of where things are. As always tour guides are a hit and a miss. I personally didn't care for the Moonlinght tour. The monuments were beautiful but congested traffic, honking horns at Union Station (at least 15-20 minute delay here) and monutments I had no interest in made for a very long boring tour. Many stops I just stayed on the trolley. Next time I'll take a cab and visit just the monutments I'm interested in. But, seriously you'll waste alot of time on the trolley if you use it for the on/off priviledges. At one point we waited along with another family for 45 minutes for the trolley to pick us up. Tip 1: Trolley's are only allowed to drop you off on the backside of the capitol. You will be walking UP HILL all the way around. We almost missed our Capitol tour because of the traffic and then the trip around up the hill. Tip 2: Cabs drop you off practially at the front door.
