Washington DC: Hop-On, Hop-Off Open-Top Bus Landmarks Tour
- Valid: 1 - 2 days
- Optional audio guide
We really enjoyed the tour. Everyone at Union Station was extremely helpful. Things can get confusing between catching the blue line, but all you have to do is talk to the staff on the bus. They do their best to make it easy for everyone. The only suggestions for improvement. The web site says hours are until 4 but the last busses run until 5. I would also include an on line map with the on line vouchers and make it clear where you need to pick up the bus. You have to show your on line voucher in order for them to print out your tickets. You would think your on line voucher would be your ticket to show each time you get on and off, but that is not the case. You have to have an actual physical ticket they print out for you.
This was a great experience, both the online booking & the tour. We were unable to visit on the ticketed day, however, the manager was gracious enough to accept the reservation for the following day. The tour guide was helpful in providing expectations & the digital checkpoints along the day were fun. The only criticism was that a male giftshop cashier was grossly unpleasant in appearance. His hair was dirty, beard & mustache were matted & had food particles in them.
good experience booking through this site, if only because it opened up the possibilities of activities to me. But it was frustrating that once I got there I still had to wait in line and then still got a much later time slot--I'm not sure it was worth it to save a dollar or two. But I did enjoy the museum, and not sure I would have found my way here were it not for the get your guide app
Overall it was a good experience. I liked seeing the staffers at some of the stops. However, it was unorganized at Union Station. I was left at Union Station because the driver said we would leave at 4:10. I arrived from back to the bus from the restroom at 4:08 only to see the bus driving away.
It has an announcement and tells you where you at ( landmark) history about the area and landmarks. They give individual earphones to listen better.I also like the get off and get back on at any of their bus stops , so that was great and.at easy. Mr. James J. Was an excellent tour bus driver .
