Excellent Tour Company

We took the hop-on hop-off tour for two days. This is an excellent way to see downtown DC. We also used it for night time tour that was excellent as well.

Being in Canada, I called for information regarding their tours...Hop-on/off and Arlington, Major Kudos to Leanne who was so patient and understanding of all the questions I had..I could've chosen from a few companies but because of her wonderful customer service I chose them. I can't wait to get there now and take advantage of all her tips and advice... More

I spent the day utilizing the Trolley Tours -- I rode the whole loop, getting off when I wanted to see things and then hopping back on. I had several drivers who all had different styles, but each one was knowledgeable, and helpful to anyone with questions. I was disappointed there wasn't a stop closer to the FDR/MLK memorials, but... More

We took the 2 days trolley tour, very historical and convenient if you don't have many days on town. Every half hour a trolley comes to a stop. The drivers are very knowledgeable and funny.

This is the 2nd time I have taken this tour. The sad part is that it no longer went over to Georgetown and I hated that my hubby had to miss that. The tour was priced well and the hop on and off worked well for most folks. We rode the entire tour on one trolley and the driver had... More

If they picked us up or got us there this review would have been a 4-5 star review. We were excited to see DC and this company was recommended to us from the hotel. We waited at stop #2 only to watch the bus driver drive right by. Then we took the red loop to Arlington.  We were told, when... More

The driver/guides raised the rating from 3 to 4 all we encountered were great. One that sticks out in my mind "the professor" outstanding. A couple things that would help mark all the stops at least 2 not marked and if you don't get off there don't know where to wait almost missed after waiting awhile because of this so... More

TIP!!!- make sure to check online prices before going to the starting place. I paid about half the price online as the lady in the booth wanted to charge us. I was pleasantly surprised how efficient and easy to use these trolleys were.... not to mention they took me to almost all the places I wanted to see. I recommend... More

This was by far the best way to get around and find out about the ins and outs of D.C. Trolls drivers were fantastic and I learned quite a bit. My only issue would be if they had a gps tracker or something on your phone to find out if trolley is delayed to traffic, or other issues
