This is a great way to see the sites. We bought the two day pass. Our 1st hop on we did the full two hour loop so we could see the city and take it all in. We then hopped on/off to see the sites and did some walking between monuments. We used the bus as our “ride home” at the end of the day once we learned the stop closest to our hotel. We never waited long for the bus to arrive at a stop, they were clean, and the narration easy to listen to. Most of the drivers and staff were great (we had one grumpy guy.) Our flight got delayed in Chicago and with a few hours to kill we immediately went online to find a big bus tour. Unfortunately the timeline didn’t work for our layover. Definitely a great way to take in the city, and cheaper than Lyft for getting around town!

Pick up drop off points where in good locations it made it easy to see all of the great points of interest in one day it was nice not having to drive the traffic is very heavy in the DC area.we had multiple drivers through out the day and every one was kind and professional.

Buses were a great way to see the city. Will do it again when we go back. They were back every 20 minutes just as they said. Hop on hop off was a great experience

I really appreciated the timeliness of arrivals and departures. Commentary was fascinating. Would highly recommend.

But I would do it without the bus. Too expensive in relation
