Stops were pretty convenient but tour guides were overly opinionated and pushed their liberal views instead of just giving an unbiased tour.

Janelle M, Public Relations Manager at Gray Line DC, responded to this review

Hi Nsnyder, We are very sorry this happened! Gray Line DC is a separate entity of the Hop On/Hop Off tours even though we sell their tickets, so that was not our own tour guide. We suggest you leave a review with them instead. More

I could not recommend this tour enough, the tour guides were very knowledgeable and were happy to answer and questions. They made recommendations on what we should visit and where to go. We did the night tour as well and it really is worth it. I would go on this tour again tomorrow if possible. Tom our tour guide for... More

We took the Mount Vernon & Arlington tour. We went off season in December and only two couples booked the tour! We were told that normally they would reschedule our tour since less than 10 people booked, but the other couple was leaving the next day so it was just the four of us and our tour guide.

DC After Dark is a fabulous way to see the best parts of Washington, D.C. at night! The tour guide we had, Wayne, was wonderful and provided many additional historical facts that made it so much more fun! Mount Vernon & Arlington was a great combination to end our trip! Definitely recommend both!!

Took the DC after Dark tour and it was a great way to see some of the important monuments in DC. It helped us to get a feel for the city and how far/close things are. We also were able to get off the bus and walk around some of the monuments if we wanted to. Our driver, Herbert, was... More

DC After Dark is well worth taking the time to do. The tour is three hours, but the time just flies by. This tour stops at the White House, Jefferson Memorial, Martin Luther King Junior Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam Veterans Memorial and US Marine Corps War Memorial. It also goes by many other sights in DC that the tour guide... More

So glad we decided to see Mt. Vernon. What a beautiful sight! Our driver/tour guide, Herbert, was great! He talked throughout the drive and was very knowledgeable of the history of the area. A beautiful drive and a fantastic mansion and grounds.

Loved the tours-Gettysburg, Mt. Vernon, and DC at Dark. Guides were very knowledgeable and drivers very good. Needed a bit more time at Roosevelt/MLK memorials on the DC at Dark tour. We were running and still did not have time to see both. Others on the tour agreed 10 more minutes at that stop would have been great. Gettysburg bus... More
