This hop-on hop-off bus tour of Washington, D.C., lets you experience the city on your own terms with three curated routes. With so much to see in DC, just finding your way can be overwhelming, but not so on this tour. Plan a succinct day by prebooking a 24-hour pass, or upgrade to a 48-hour pass, which includes a narrated moonlight tour of the city and a river cruise.
  • Visit key D.C. destinations and beyond with ease
  • Explore the places that interest you at your own pace
  • No need to arrange for public transit, parking, or taxis
  • Option to upgrade for a river cruise and night tour
  • Bus tour offers a great way to get your bearings in Washington, D.C.
What to Expect
Make your way to Union Station to present your voucher for three hop-on, hop-off bus routes through Washington, D.C., Arlington, and Georgetown. You’ll see the city from a double-decker bus; the upper deck is ideal for sunny days, or duck below in case of cooler weather. As you wind through Washington, D.C., hear the stories behind the nation’s capital with pre-recorded narration and live commentary from local guides. Ride the entire circuit or jump off whenever something catches your eye, whether monuments or Georgetown boutiques. Your tickets give you access to three loops: Monuments and Landmarks, including the White House, the Washington National Cathedral & Georgetown loop, and an Arlington National Cemetery & Pentagon loop. Those who opt for the 48-hour pass get a bonus: a 3-hour night tour of D.C. and a 50-minute daytime river cruise that goes past some of the city’s top monuments.

I liked the open bus (open second deck) and the attendant giving out all the sights and history of the buildings. Had a great time.

The timing is unreliable. This could just be the heavy traffic in Washington. Doubt this is worth the $49.00 cost. Once and done!!!
