When I arrived at Union station to redeem my Groupon, I had to wait because there were FOUR different parties waiting to complain about something. This wasn't a good first impression. There were two workers and they both seemed overwhelmed and undertrained. When we got on the bus, it was packed!!!!! And, it was below freezing. We were on the... More

Staff friendly and helpful. My camera died and Brenda let me take photos on her phone and she sent them too me. Guides go out of their way to help. Schedule...spent more time waiting on busses then riding them. There is no schedule so you have no idea if you just missed the bus and have to wait 30 min... More

Purchased the 48-hour tickets and started the tour (red line) from Grand Union Station and sat on the tour bus for the whole red loop. Lovely, comical live commentaries. Purple and yellow lines run less frequently but routes are worth taking as they are picturesque and scenic. Recommend taking the night tour which is valid on the 48-hour tour. Dory... More

So picked up my tickets at 5:45pm for the Night tour of DC, informed that the bus would start loading at 6:15 and depart at 6:30. Grabbed some food then headed to the bus at 6:15, which was already almost completely full. Now it was 29 degrees outside, of course the inside was full ( seating for maybe 10 people)... More

This was the best night tour I have ever taken in DC. The tour guide got off the bus and walked you through the monuments and explained everything. No checking your watch wondering if you had enough time to use the restroom or constantly looking to see where the bus had moved to. It was all planned out and well... More

Drivers and guides very informative. Thought they could have driven slower round landmarks to enable photo taking. Some did. The only down side was the long wait for the buses. .

I recommend the night tour by far, if you get the 48 hour pass or not. Absolutely different at night, beautiful an amazing experience. The boat was okay, I'd rather taken the night time party boat tour instead, but for the price it was okay; had to stand around to long in line would be my biggest complaint about the... More
