We just took this tour today. I have lived in the washington area in the past and i was showing around a young friend from paris. We really enjoyed the trolley tour. The guides knew more than i could have told my friend myself, and i learned some new things about the city. Very good tour. Very good value.

I based my decision to take the narrated trolley tour reading the review and the description of the tour. I am thrilled to say that the old town trolley narrated tour is probably the best guided tour to take in a place like washington dc. What is great about this tour is that you can set the pace for the tour and at the same time ensure continuity. My mom could not walk a lot and so we got off where we wanted to and stayed on in the bus when we didn't feel like hopping out. The wait time when you hop out is about 20-25 minutes. We were lucky to always find a seat when we wanted to get back in. The best part is when you get back in the tour continues...Much like picking up a book and continuing with the story where you left off. The tour guides have a good sense of humor and they do a great job. All in all, a terrific value for money!

I appreciated the knowledgeable tour guides who did a good job with their narrations, historical and background information, kudos. I was least impressed with one who was more interested in telling jokes and not much of information, education. Tour guides in dc need to realize that learnining is at the top of the priorities for dc tourists. But for that one tour guide, we think we really did enjoy it, it was fun, we'll do it again.
