Awesome experience
, Jun 2021
Changing of the guard was the highlight experience for my wife and me. She had never experienced DC at all.
Vague instructions but a very good tour once you get there
, Jun 2021
It was such a great experience. The instructions for the tour were very vague about where to catch it, but once we got there, it's just the tram tour. Very informative and cool. You can go back through if you miss anything at no cost.
You need this!!!

Best $15 spent on my entire trip! There is quite a bit of walking uphill! The tram was a lifesaver! Won’t ever go without it again!
, Jun 2021
Did not receive QR code. Had to pay a second time. Filed claim with my bank for $30. Arlington was great, good weather
Where do I catch the tour? No one knows.
, Jun 2021
It was not clear where to go to start the tour so we canceled. No information given when we booked and no one at Arlington knew, but they shouldn’t since it’s not their job to help an outside vendor’s customers. Disappointing.
