Royal Trolley Tours has been showing visitors the sights of DC for over 13 years and we can't wait to show you too! We offer morning, evening , and all day tours. Our all day tours include an hour long boat cruise down the Potomac River and every tour provides unlimited bottled water! The fresh air is a wonderful compliment on a hot day in DC and the open windows provide an unobstructed view of the sights! If the open aired trolley is not for you please visit our sister company "Signature Tours DC" to look at our climate controlled, brand new coach buses.
