We recently went on a Gray Line tour from D.C. to Gettysburg. Wayne was our driver and he did an excellent job of both driving and providing information along the way. It was so nice not to have to worry about driving through D.C. Traffic!!!...More

We booked with Gray Line because we had great experiences with them in the past. This time was disappointing. Day one was a big let down. The 'luxury' bus was similar to a hop-on-hop-off bus - enclosed lower level and open air second level. It...More

We booked the Gettysburg and monuments-after-dark tours and am I glad we did. Both tours were outstanding but Gettysburg, OH MY GOSH. What a day! The Gray Line tour includes a stop in town at a civilian house-turned-museum, and then on to the Visitor Center...More

Excellent tour. In the 2nd day going to Arli gton and Mount Vernon, Mr. Bob, the your driver, was more than instructive with all the history facts. I spent such a good time. The day in Gettysburg was excellent as well, so sad it spent...More

The open air bus top was a great way to enjoy the tour of the monuments. The way the monuments are lit makes a big difference in enjoying them.

The Good: The tour itself was good. Driver was knowledgeable, although hard to understand. Beautiful night, caught the sun going down on the first few stops. We sat upstairs in the open air and the view was unobstructed. Enough time at each stop to hurry...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
I sent a email to Gray Line Tour with my question and l am extremely disappointed that to date no reply to my query. My Husband and I will be in Washington and Toronto in October 2016. I plan to spend apx £460 on 3 tours. The tour I have a query on is what the 2 day Grand Tour of Washington covers as we plan to start on Tuesday and end the next day on Wednesday in comparison to their 1 day tour. I need to know what each day covers as would hate to see a the same sights for 2. days. This question is very important to me that I have booked a hotel near Union Station to .be near the Gray Line pick up point. Hence if Gray Line can not be bothered to reply to me could someone out there answer my question. Thank You

Regret I'm unable to do so as I was time limited and the all inclusive trip was fine for my needs.
We will be staying at Cherry Hill Park and were told you send shuttles there to pick up/drop off twice a day. Will this actually be GrayLine or will it be the Big Bus Tours? Can you give me prices and itineraries for both day and night tours, please. We'll be there the first week of April. Is it necessary to make a reservation before we arrive? Thx
