Today we went on a tour of Washington DC. Our guide Derek was very entertaining. He answered all of our questions and presented the facts & figures so that we all listened to every piece of information. 10 out of 10.

We bought groupons for the night monument tour. Our guide was great and she provided a lot of interesting facts and history. Our ride on top of the bus was a little chilly but it was November after all. Riding the bus saves a lot of walking and our tour went even longer than the three hours.

We purchased a 48 tour and also did the twilight tour. We rode multiple buses and had a great time visiting all the attractions. Everything was as described. But the reason we highly enjoyed ourselves and would recommend it is due to the quality and passion of the best tour guide and driver we had. Charles Smith was our driver... More

Instead of a prerecorded, out of sync commentary, this company provided a real live talking guide you could interact with. The commentary by Thelma was excellent. The company even picked us up from our Arlington motel and returned us there after the city lights tour. Good value price included 2 days hop on hop off, a lunchtime harbour cruise and... More

This tour company was awesome helping me with my walker. They explained all the different sights and were very knowledgeable about the DC area. When I come back we will be using this tour company again.

The night tour was a wonderful introduction to Washington for a first-time visitor. Our driver/ guide, Charles Smith, has a wealth of knowledge about Washington and American history, which he shared with us as we visited the various illuminated monuments. My new knowledge about the achievements of various presidents made my visits to various monuments and points of interest much... More

They offered a free cruise and night tour with the 48 hour pass. They do not tell you that the cruise only departs at one time during the day. They also don't tell you that the night tour is from one particular location and does not include all busses and all routes. They don't have as many buses as Big... More

Took advantage of the HopOn HopOff tour, to just drive round the city. We booked the Red and Purple route tour, to see all the sites before going back the next day to actually get off. Book the 48 hour ticket, and get the most out of the city. Lots can be done by walking, but you need the occasional... More
