Overview

The open-top deck of a Big Bus tour is the best way to see Washington DC. Sit back and relax as you are transported passed the iconic landmarks that make America's Capital so recognizable and special. Our sightseeing tours are designed to provide a flexible approach to city discovery. Your hop-on, hop-off ticket provides you the freedom to get off the bus to explore and visit attractions. Buses run regularly so re-joining the tour is easy.

Thoroughly enjoyed the bus tour. Our guide Alicia was fantastic and extremely knowledgeable and courteous . Our bus driver Misty did a great job of coordinating her stops with Alicia. Would definitely do the tour again if able to have both ladies accompany the tour.
