"Good but timing is everything"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed March 19, 2019 NEW
Trolleys run about thirty minutes apart but that can vary substantially. Timing is everything especially if you have small kids. Especially if you hop over to ANC. Our experience: waited about 20 minutes at Lincoln for shuttle bus. Waited about 30 minutes to catch tram into cemetery. Got lucky at Tomb of Unknown Soldier and only waited 15 minutes. Then waited 30 minutes to catch shuttle back to Lincoln and another 25 minutes to catch Trolley back to our original stop. With a six year old this was a beating. I think they may have an app to help you time things better.

"Great way to see the sites and get around!"

It is so hard to get to see everything and to make your way around the city. We found the tour guides to be very knowledgeable and the locations they stopped at were perfect for what we wanted to do. We pikced the 2 day with the Water Taxi. We were unable to get the water taxi to Georgetown, so be sure you check the schedules if that is where you want to go.

"Not worth the cost"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed March 17, 2019 NEW
Very disappointed. We chose this tour for the hop on hop off feature, but it was too inconvenient to utilize. The stops were inconveniently located and not well marked. The wait time between trolleys is over 30 minutes so it was quicker to walk. We rode from The Lincoln Memorial to one of the stops around the National Mall and still needed to walk quite a ways to our destination. After waiting over 30 minutes at the stop near the Capitol Building to continue the tour we had to disembark only a few stops later because it was too hot with all the windows closed and obnoxious with the guide yelling and stammering over his words into the microphone. Save your money or use a different tour company. The amount we paid for our family of five could have been much better spent.

Old Town Trolley exceeded our expectations!! You can stay on and ride around the sights OR you can hop off for whenever you want. They come by every half hour. And you hop back on to go to the next stop!! They are super helpful!!! You will learn about DC from these folks...enjoyed all of them...esp. Jewel and Mr. Holiday.

"What a find ......"

I found these guys on Trip Advisor as I wanted a tour of Washington DC which had to be cost effective. I booked my two day tour ticket in the UK through Trip Advisor which was seamless. When I arrived in DC I showed them my voucher and I was immediately given 2 tickets. If you want to see the sites in DC, these are the guys to use. I paid for the platinum pass which have me free entry into the Arlington Cemetery and a tour of the Cemetery itself. All the drivers are courteous, extremely knowledgeable and very helpful. I’d rebook with them if I visited DC again.
