Drivers were nice, friendly & helpful. Also very informative. Always a seat on the trolley & they arrived fast at the stops, even on a Saturday. Would definitely recommend & would use this hop on hop off service again.

We have used this company in many cities we have visited. Their tours are excellent and having live narration is great. All of their employees seem to be very good. The tour of Washington DC is a great way to get around and see the...More

I'm glad I went on it. I had thought it would be a double decker hop on hop off bus but after being on the trolley I thought it was really good. The driver who was commentating was entertaining and informative about the places. The...More

Third time with the trolley. I would never do D.C. Sightseeing any other way especially for Arlington. Roads are confusing and parking is sparse. this ride takes all the stress out of touring all the major sites and stops in town. Discount with booking online.

This tour service only has a tour guide that gives commentaries in English. A tour orientated only for Americans! When asked if there were headphones with other language commentaries, yes but not always and not on the day we were doing it.

There are a couple of tour companies that do the downtown drop-off/hop-on circuit. I've used Old Town Trolley twice and like the drivers. They are usually knowledgeable and funny. It's a good way to see most of the monuments and get a feel for where...More

I've lived near DC all my life and have visited many times, but this was the first time I've seen it all lit up at night. It was a great way to end a day trip with friends and kids. As the sun went down,...More

After waiting for a half hour (which was expected) the bus arrived completely full (unexpected). This happened three of the four times we caught the trolley. We ended up waiting 45-60 minutes for the trolley. We were in line for 2.5 hours of the eight...More

We enjoyed our day with your company. The drivers were all funny and informative. We got off and on quite a few times and did not have to wait too long to get on a new trolley. I would recommend this company.

I'm not exactly sure. No one on my tour had a service animal but I would assume they are welcome. I didn't see any reason that would prevent it.

We purchased tickets from home on the internet which was cheaper. We used it as a stay-on ride to see all of DC. We used the Uber for the rest of our transportation. Uber was much more convenient, faster, and very safe.
