We found the trips tour guides to be in formative and friendly! Did find one to be a bit pushy about receiving a tip to the point where she passed around a bag for tips!! The journey is designed to show as many of the major sites possible and the route was spot on!! Could find at the most popular sites to re-board may incur a long wait if the bus fills up!

Our family of six enjoyed the convenience of transportation and explanation using the Big Bus for our WA DC tour. The bus stops were easy to access from the monuments and other site locations. Our night tour guide was very well researched and entertaining! We found Union Station, where you have to start your tour the first time and the night tour, to be a good spot for a lunch or coffee/pastry - also easy to access by metro or train.

The Night Tour was amazing especially because of the tour guide, Nur! He was energetic and so knowledgeable! He didn’t make it like a lecture. He made funny jokes and shared personal experiences. He stayed clear of any political statements. I would recommend the night tour to everyone because DC is gorgeous in the evening! And hopefully you’ll get Nur as your tour guide!

Two visitors from Kyoto, Japan took the premium tour. They seemed very happy at the end of the tour.
The Japanese translations were a boon.
The staff was welcoming and treated the visitors with much kindness.
Thank you.

This is the best way to see DC. It stops at all the highlights and you can walk to others from the stops and then get back on to the next. Lots of great information.
