They never showed up. No cancellation call no cancellation email. We were in the right location for the pick up, checked with police who said this was the right spot but they were not there.

Terrible information provided when you purchase tickets. Both the ticket and website provided 2 bus stops for the night tour of DC. My family and 2 other families showed up at the Willard Hotel stop before 6:30 pm, as written out on our tickets. The bus never showed up!! When another family called the number, an automated service told them the pick up location was at Union Station at 7:00. I got on the app and chatted with customer service I was told the pick up was Union Station at 6:30. Terrible instruction and customer interface for this company! The suggestion from customer service was that I should go again another night and show up at the correct location. Do Not sign up for Big Bus Tours!!

Too expensive

The tour was OK, not more than that. The guide was nice and friendly but for what we've got alltogether - it should have cost much less than USD45.

Excellent tour of the highlights. Good way to orient yourself to the city. We could have had a better guide, he was very mumbly and a fast talker. Our crew was George and Trina

The night tour on July 26 with Sam was amazing. He had so much knowledge and history of our tour. The night to or was so relaxing and I enjoyed sitting on the top deck. Worth every penny! The 30 minute stop at Lincoln memorial was a nice surprise as well. Thanks Big Bus!

Needed a different day, night and bus!!

There were 5 of us, 2 Grandparents over 65, mother and 2 grandchildren 4 & 6. We loaded at Willard Hotel, July 20, around 7:00pm. On 3rd bus. Got to Union Station and found out ours was not included in the tour and would have to get on another bus. There were probably 5-6 other already loaded buses with a line of people on sidewalk. Decided to just include the bus. They were pulling out and we were telling tour guide on bus next to us that we had no guide. Bus stopped and we got a guide, sat there trying to get intercom working. Decided to go on still working on it. Stopped when never got it working and they were getting another bus. Stood waiting over 30 minutes. Bus came (partial cover, front) older and of course blowing air didn't worth _hit! It was the 50 th anniversary of the moon landing. Therefore we pretty much saw buildings and traffic! Saw Washington, Jefferson and White House. Got off at Lincoln for around 15-20 minutes. That was it! After11:30 and being taken back to where we started. Very disappointed that they schedule tours when they know special things are happening and NO lanes are designated for buses so you're sitting in traffic FOREVER.! Little children don't care about the buildings you're sitting in front of. Personally neither do adults after awhile. I felt so sorry for the bus driver and tour guide. Terrible timing!

Guide was knowledgeable and had a good sense of humor---however, since it was spring time, natural light was predominant, and the beauty of the monuments lit up was not possible. My suggestion would be to visit the administrative sights before going to visit the monuments--better chance of seeing what you paid for.

Tremendous Fun (Even in the Rain!)

We had a terrific time on the tour through Washington. About 15 minutes into the trip it started pouring down rain. Of course we were sitting on the top deck with no cover! Our guide got us all rain ponchos, and we honestly could not have had more fun. I will always remember my trip to DC! Tom Thompson was a fantastic guide.
