"I would highly recommend this way to tour the sites!"
My husband and i were in dc for a wedding, and we only had one day to do tourist type sightseeing. This was the perfect way to get an overview of a lot of great sites. Our tour guide (who said to call him mr. Ordinary) was funny, personable, and had great information to share. It was a pretty hot day, but with the windows rolled up (kind of like jeep windows), there was a great breeze as we drove, so even on a hot day that made it comfortable. It also allowed us to get great pictures because we didn't have to deal with any reflections off window glass. We only chose to get off at one stop (the national archives), and when it was time to board again there weren't enough seats for the people waiting to get back on the trolley, so some had to stay behind to wait for the next trolley to come around. This tour was well worth the money, and we will definitely use this way to see the sites again when we come back to dc. You get to see a lot without the nightmare of trying to drive through dc traffic. I would highly recommend this way to tour the sites!

"Very good value."
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.

"All in all, a terrific value for money!"
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!

"This is the way for those without cars to see D.C. "
This is the way for those without Cars to see d.C. All of the drivers are very knowledgeable and friendly. 4 stars instead of 5 because several times we had to get off the bus because it was going out of service and wait 30 minutes for a new bus to arrive.

"saved us money"
An excellent service and the drivers were always pleasant and provided great information on the various locations as we passed by. And, although we didn't make frequent use of the service over the two day we were there, it probably still saved us money by not having to use a taxi several times.

Great tour. Convenient accessibility. One thing: need to mention the welcome station near the metro center train station and not just the union station option to catch the trolley.

"The hop on hop off trolley was nice"
The hop on hop off trolley was nice, however, they were sometimes full and we had to wait 10-15 minutes in the hot sun for the next one to arrive. There were no stops with shade covering and the other sight seeing buses seemed to come more often.

"used both the day and night tours"
Used both the day and night tours night tour was great driver named jewel was wonderful . Day tour was fine the first day. But it took almost two hours to go from stop 7 to stop 13 on sat due to traffic. We wasted too much time, leaving little time at the museum, we had really wanted to see. While i realize you cannot control the traffic, maybe a different route? I would probably not use the trolley during the day again getting a cab was much quicker

"A great way to get around at an affordable price. Jerry Willliams"
Drivers were very friendly and gave an interesting piece of information on most of the sights. A lot of the info was on monument size or height. I realize we are driving past and there isn't a lot of time to talk about them but i would've loved one or two sentences on the meaning of the monument or something other than it's size. Still, definitely worth the money. A great way to get around at an affordable price.

"Enjoyed the trolly tours."
Enjoyed the trolly tours. Due to a trolly breakdown had to wait almost an hour for another. Of course, one of the worst cold days in washington dc. Really great that tour provided shuttle to and from my hotel to the tour center. Saved me both time and cab fare. Tour guides furnished lots of information as they drove their routes. Great idea to hop off and on. Would recommend hop on/hop off tour to anyone going to washington dc.

We kept missing the trolley and had to wait alot for the next trolley, often a half hour or more meaning we didn't get to do as much. The guides on each of them were very good and we learned alot. Took the trolley in boston as well and had more success in catching the trolley in time. Guess we learned how to better plan our time. In washington, the trolleys weren't allowed to stop close to the monuments which meant long walks. Found it was easier to drive to the monuments as they had parking closer. (i have handicap parking which got us closer)

"Kudos"
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.

"very courteous & informational."
I thought the drivers were very courteous & informational. However, we had my father & mother w/us who can't walk very far & we thought they dropped us off way too far from the jefferson memorial. Also, some of the stops were blocked by larger buses which made it very hard for us to see the trolley coming.
