We enjoyed our tour very much the drivers were very friendly , helpful and informative. We were disappointed that we were not able to do the Arlington Cemetary tour though. This was our fault beccause we forgot to take our passports. However, could I suggest that on the tickets there is a reminder about needing passports. We booked our tour on-line months ago and although it does tell you on the web site that you need a passport for the Cemertary Tour, we had forgoten this and theer is no mention of of it on the actual ticket. Had there been we would have remembered.

Disappointing

Disappointing. They had a holding bus. We were one of the first ones on. Then the bus that was to take us around came and all the people that came after us got on and then no room for us. We’d have to wait 30-45 minutes for next one. So we took an Uber. Then busses didn’t come around often enough. Too much waiting. Ended up taken an Uber more than we used the bus. Not worth it

Narrated tour helped us get our sense of direction on our first day in town. Water shuttle ride on the Potomac was relaxing. Bus into Arlington Cemetery took all the quess work out of figuring how to get across the bridge. Would recommend taking this bus tour on your first or second day in town.
