Then at the Potomac River you'll splash down for a whole different look at the nation's capital. From the land to the water, it's ALL IN THE SAME VEHICLE!

    We took the daytime trolley tour, and had a great time. Everybody we encountered was nice, while some exceeded expectations. Diamond Jim, for example. We went to Arlington and wanted to see the Changing of the Guard. That started at 4:00, and the trolley would leave at 4:30. We ended up missing the trolley, but he knew there were still two groups that he took out that didn't get back on, and he came back for us. Then he even showed us a few of the monuments at night, even though that was technically a different tour. Smokey was also very spirited...Read More

    I have been in the DC area for 20 years and it was about time I got a proper tour of Washington DC and Eric absolutely rocked the bus - figuratively speaking. He was professional, interesting, knowledgeable, articulate and entertaining. The bus was very comfortable and you stopped just enough to keep it interesting. I will highly recommend your tours in the future. Thanks - can't wait to see what other services you provide.

    After years of seeing the many tour busses around Washington, DC I finally got a chance to try one out for myself.

    I took the "Monuments at Night" tour and it was great! Our tour guide, Eric, was knowledgable and, more importantly, very entertaining. The entire tour lasted around two hours and included a few stops to take some pictures (or use the restroom if necessary).

    I've walked all over the Washington, DC area and seeing it from an Old Town Trolley was a completely different experience for me. If you're new to the area (or on vacation and...Read More

    My boyfriend and I took the Monuments by Moonlight tour and we both had a great time. The two of us had walked to some of the monuments late at night once, but this trolley tour was a lot of fun mostly due to to our driver and guide, Eric. Eric really knew his history of Washington. Because this was a private free group offer we received, we didn't have to deal with any tickets/vouchers/payments that might have affect other people's opinions of the process.

    We started around Union Station and of course went around the Capitol and the various congressional...Read More

My boyfriend and I took the Monuments by Moonlight tour and we both had a great time. The two of us had walked to some of the monuments late at night once, but this trolley tour was a lot of fun mostly due to to our driver and guide, Eric. Eric really knew his history of Washington. Because this was a private free group offer we received, we didn't have to deal with any tickets/vouchers/payments that might have affect other people's opinions of the process.

We started around Union Station and of course went around the Capitol and the various congressional buildings. We also passed by the Smithsonian museums, the National Mall including the Washington Monument, and the Jefferson Memorial. Our first stop was at the FDR Memorial with a great view of the Tidal Basin and Washington Monument from across the Basin. Afterwards, we headed towards the Marine Corps War Memorial (aka Iwo Jima Memorial) and Arlington Cemetery. Eric then drove towards the Arlington Memorial Bridge and stopped briefly (no getting off the trolley) at the roundabout to get a view of Washington on one side and the Arlington House on the other. Finally, our last stop was at the Lincoln Memorial/Vietnam Veterans Memorial/Korean War Memorial. On our way back to Union Station, Eric was kind enough to offer to stop at the Metro Center and L'Enfant metro stations. He even offered to stop at one couple's car when they spotted it on our way back.

Not knowing what to expect, I really enjoyed this trolley tour. I thought Eric was a fantastic guide. He was very knowledgeable, was a great driver (loved his joke when a hasty DC driver honked at him that by honking, said driver can now teleport in front of the trolley), and was very enthusiastic and animated. If there was any possible way of reserving guides, I'd go with Eric again.
