While I was in DC, we used DC Trails as our tour guides and our transportation. The Busses are excellent and so are the drivers. Personally, I had Big Sarge, he was an excellent guide. He made us laugh while also giving us great information....More

You shouldn't have any issues. We had to take the Metro back to Arlington and didn't have any problems as the Metro ran until midnight. I think we got off the bus around 10:15 or so and we were back in Arlington long before... More
