What to Expect
Make your way to Union Station to present your voucher for three hop-on, hop-off bus routes through Washington, D.C., Arlington, and Georgetown. You’ll see the city from a double-decker bus; the upper deck is ideal for sunny days, or duck below in case of cooler weather. As you wind through Washington, D.C., hear the stories behind the nation’s capital with pre-recorded narration and live commentary from local guides. Ride the entire circuit or jump off whenever something catches your eye, whether monuments or Georgetown boutiques. Your tickets give you access to three loops: Monuments and Landmarks, including the White House, the Washington National Cathedral & Georgetown loop, and an Arlington National Cemetery & Pentagon loop. Those who opt for the 48-hour pass get a bonus: a 3-hour night tour of D.C. and a 50-minute daytime river cruise that goes past some of the city’s top monuments.

The timing is unreliable. This could just be the heavy traffic in Washington. Doubt this is worth the $49.00 cost. Once and done!!!
Dion is a “prime time” tour guide! Enjoyed hop on hop off and DC bc of him! He is so knowledgeable and entertaining. He cared about his passengers well being as well.
