First, thanks to Brian Burden to arrange a drop off place next to a bus stop. At night, that makes a big difference. Thanks for the quick return call and reserving my spot.

In April we booked the DC Hop-on Hop-off to get an overview of the monument locations. It was raining so we completed the loop another time with our second driver, Cheryl. She identified all the sites and added historical points of interests. She answered all of my questions. During both trips there were no more 2-3 other people. The next... More

Cheryl, the motor coach narrator and driver, was superb. She was a history major and you can tell that she knows everything about DC without notes. She took us through the path of the plane that hit the Pentagon. I felt like I was there. Brian was very helpful explaining the tour.
