This Washington, D.C., bus tour is an affordable way to plan a day or two of sightseeing in the US capital. Instead of figuring out routes between main attractions, such as the White House and Arlington National Cemetery, book a bus tour with three routes. Move through D.C. at your own pace and stop at the sights that interest you. Tour includes admission to Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum.

What to Expect

Begin your adventure at any of the Big Bus stops on any of its three routes. Show your voucher as you board, and you’re ready to go.

Between the three routes, there are more than 40 stops at popular D.C. sights and neighborhoods. Pick your preferred stops and use the Big Bus as worry-free transportation to and from attractions. Wait time for a bus varies depending on the route and time of year and ranges from 15 to 45 minutes.

Along your journey, listen to both live and recorded audio commentary for information about the city. Upgrade to a Deluxe Ticket for access to a special night tour of the city. Both ticket options come with an admission ticket to Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum.

Book the hop-on hop-off bus tour ahead of time for seamless transportation to D.C.’s most popular attractions.

Great content - poor circumstances

The bus was a great way to get around the main sights of Washington without having to do a ton of walking. The headphones were uncomfortable, and there was quite a lot of overlap between the red tour and the night tour in terms of...More

Disappointed beyond belief. Do NOT waste your money on this

No airconditioning in 91 degree weather. The recording was delivered among crackling sounds to the point that you couldn't understand a word and when we called attention to this the recording was turned off! The responses the driver and conductor gave to our questions ended...More

The buses dont have the minimum conditions

We did the 2 day package, including the blue, red, yellow and night tour on the 25th and 26th July 2018. Unfortunately we got a mix of warm weather and tropical rain. Although the personnel was very nice and welcoming, the buses really don´t have...More
