    Tour Detail

    Double decker tours offer the best tourist experience in Washington DC. Riding the double decker buses, you will be able to have the most visible sights of famous places like Union Station, the US Capitol building, the White House, Jefferson Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, Roosevelt Memorial, World War II Memorial, Vietnam Memorial, Korean War Memorial, National Cathedral, Air & Space Museum (and any of 17 other amazing museums - some with free entrance from the Smithsonian Foundation).

    Your hop on hop off tickets are valid for either 24 or 48 hours - whichever you purchase - giving you a good orientation of all the city has to offer. Each of the individual tour routes takes 60 to 90 minutes if you stay on the bus...but the hop on hop off facility enables you to visit any of the attractions along each route, such as the Arlington National Cemetery - the most hallowed burial ground of America's fallen military and one of the most visited tourist sites in Washington DC. Also located at Arlington are the Tomb of the Unknown, the Memorial Amphitheater and the Eternal Flame at the John F. Kennedy burial site.

    The tours feature entertaining and informative narration. If you're new to Washington, one option to consider is to ride an entire loop to get a good feel for what you will want to go back and visit as you hop-off and hop-on at various stops on the loop. In a full day, you can make approximately 5-6 stops to visit many, but not all, of the hundreds of available attractions.

If your reservation is for a holiday period, please ask your guide or driver on the day of the tour for specific information regarding your tour.

"Hop-On-Hop-Off is the most ideal way to see Washington, DC, as it allows you to tailor your own tour based on your interests and time constraints without having to hail a cab every time you want to go from one site to the next. If time is limited, it's easy to skip lower priority attractions and focus on those attractions of higher priority." Read All Reviews ›

"The service showed us the general lay of the land and included a nice harbor boat tour, but the time to travel between sites and the crowds did not allow for easy on/off. We used the metrorail to get around to our chosen sites ie. National Cathedral, Smithsonians, Arlington the second day, although we had purchased a two day pass. " Read All Reviews ›
