Overall rating

(132 reviews)

I’ve done a lot of city bus tours and this for me was the best one I’ve done. I was underwhelmed by the day tour but the sunset tour more than made up for it. We got to see a lot and stopped next to Lincoln’s memorial so we could go up and see him. Don’t know the driver’s name but he was great and enthusiastic. I wanted to tip him but didn’t have any cash left.

Unfortunately, a bus didn't come every 15 minutes... That's probably because of the traffic in DC. We didn't have a guide like we're used to, but listened to an audio file with headphones. But it was very informative and interesting!! I can only recommend it!

It was possible to get off at any time at the most popular sights. You can get back on every 20 minutes. Before each stop you get tips from the guide. The best way to see as much of Washington as possible in one day.

They couldn’t do all stops because of protests and road closure but was still a good way to see everything. I’m not sure it was worth the price though. The Boat cruise was brilliant

Perfect if you are only in Washington for one day and want to see all the highlights at once. We would never have managed to see everything in one day on foot
