There is so much walking to do in DC that the bus was a very helpful and enjoyable way to get around. I would suggest that you stay on the bus the entire trip to see what you want to do and then take the bus back to those places.

Was a huge break from the heat. Got us different places w/out having to walk. Two things to improve on: Not an easy sign up process. had to do it 2X to get 2 tickets second ticket didn't give QR code. Driver took my work for it but made sure we were on our last ride

All aspects of the tour including an app tracking the vehicle to great narration and comfortable seating and the open air second floor and hop-on hop-off feature were really good. The route that was taken through the city allows you to experience alot if what DC has ti offer. I would highly recommend this tour.
