The open air bus top was a great way to enjoy the tour of the monuments. The way the monuments are lit makes a big difference in enjoying them.

Stops were pretty convenient but tour guides were overly opinionated and pushed their liberal views instead of just giving an unbiased tour.

Hi Nsnyder, We are very sorry this happened! Gray Line DC is a separate entity of the Hop On/Hop Off tours even though we sell their tickets, so that was not our own tour guide. We suggest you leave a review with them instead.
