There were no real good points to this tour. The trip was very expensive for 90 minutes and when we did stop at the Lincoln memorial for thirty minutes this was no where long enough to view the three areas. A total waste of money we recommend you do not do this trip.

when Purchasing tickets, it did not indicate the stop at Cemetry had to be on another day. So, we spent extra dollars for no reason since we were leaving on the next morning. I think this option on your website should be the 2nd option along with BIG print about the process. How much money have you made from this? Shameful

We liked the tour bus

I was confused by the part two trip to Arlington cemetery. The tour bus took us back where they picked up us. We didn’t know. We have to go to Arlington on our own. The Arlington bus tour was paid for and Arlington ticket office accepted our ticket. However, I still gave them five stars because the lady tour guide/ driver is very good and very patient. She explained to me how to get to Arlington Cemetery. We did like both park of the trips.

Everything was great. I got there early and asked if I could leave on the next tour. The representative assured me that if there was room I could. So we did. MJ our driver was knowledgeable funny and an overall superstar. My only disappointment was not being able to see more of the White House. Of course no fault to you guys. I would definitely recommend trolley tours to any and everyone. Thank You for making this a great experience for my family.

The tour guide was very informative and brought the tour to life. This is an excellent tour and I highly recommend it for anyone who is interested in a nice “drive by” of the major DC monuments. The stop at the Lincoln Memorial allotted plenty of time to View the Vietnam Memorial as well. You will enjoy this tour and it is worth every cent.
