We arrived in DC to 3 inches a snow and had a prepurchased Trolley ticket, and it was great. We spent the day on and off the trolley visiting museums and seeing the Declaration of Independence and Constitution!

We researched and found this company to be the most highly rated in reviews, so we picked them. A 5 minute walk from our hotel (and they also have shuttles from many hotels) and very easy to get tickets and get going. We were very...More
