    The union station inside is amazing. Certainly an impressive train station. There’s a taxi rank outside. A lot of tents for homeless people outside which is sad for them. We also went to see some of the trains just to see how they were different to the UK!

    Super convenient!! We arrived in Union Station on Amtrak and had planned to Uber to our hotel near the convention center but I found this via Google Maps. Great discovery. Runs every ten minutes. Currently FREE (only $1 outside COVID times). We rode on the Union Station - Georgetown line. Bus was clean and not too crowded. Also rode bus back from Georgetown U. Experience was significantly less pleasant that time around. Was very crowded including a lot of folks who appeared homeless. Bus ran on time and provided good service nonetheless. Mask required (and recommended!!).

    The Metro is one of the best ways to get around the city. The average trip is $2-$3 and can get you to within walking distance for most places. The stations and cars are generally well maintained and clean. Of course there are always exceptions to this.

    There is a lot of construction going on at various stations and points on the various lines, so plan accordingly. There is a section on the website that shows real time when trains are arriving or due to arrive/depart. Also, we had no issues with the smart trip app on our iPhones. This made things very simple and easy. There is no need to keep track of how much is left on the card, etc as the app takes care of all of that. Also, if you misjudged the amount needed, you can add money to the account instantly and be good to go.

    The major downside for many is that the silver line expansion to Dulles Airport is still under construction. A major inconvenience for those going to or from the airport or the air & space museum.

    This street car line is the first street car to open after the original line was closed in 1962. Although it is a very short distance (, this is a beginning of bringing street car back to the city to serve as one of the transportation system in Washington D.C. It is a nice attraction for tourist and a nice way to transport people to various spots in the H Street Corridor and to connect with existing services and neighborhoods. Currently it is free for the District residents and visitors. Come to enjoy good food and good bars in H Street area via Metro and connecting to the Streetcar D.C.

    Took a round tip from The Wharf to Georgetown. The ride is a great way to view some of capital’s monuments as well as some adjacent cities. It’s also a nice way to relax after visiting some museums in DC.

    We spent the day with our college kids! Pedro went out of his way to personalize the tour and added content that made it memorable. From start to finish this company is first class. You will not be disappointed. Incredibly informative and tailored to cover it all!

    We took a pedicab from the Lincoln Memorial to the Capitol. At first I felt awkward having someone else haul my rear around, but relaxed as the driver made conversation about Washington.
    One got a sense of how big the National Mall is.

    Our experience with this black car service was truly amazing! They were prompt, knowledgeable about the area and professional. From booking to pick up the service provided was fantastic and we travel all over the world and utilize similar services.

    We utilized this service for airport pick up and drop off as well as for trips to the Zoo and from there to the Air and Space Museum given the distance.

    I went into DC last minute on a business trip. I called Senate and a few others as I was entering my departing gate. Senate answered immediately and answered all of my questions. They provided excellent customer service and was able to accommodate me perfectly!! I actually flew into the Baltimore airport which was 50 minutes away from my destination. I had a small hiccup at the airport but Senate was so responsive and professional. As a woman traveling alone, I was so impressed with the measures they took to make sure I was safe that I immediately arranged my transfer back to the airport with Senate. The vehicles were clean and recent, the drivers were very pleasant without being too personal and the cost was fantastic. I will definitely use them again when I’m in the area.

    I brought a group of students to DC and needed transportation to and from Mt. Vernon. Fisseha was a great driver, was flexible with time, was very affordable, and even made an extra stop so my students could visit a tourist attraction. It was his idea!!

    Very informative!!! The guide was very passionate about the history of the Bulldogs we toured and shared very thoughtful, insightful information. Tour started on time and were were able to quickly load the van. I loved that there was limited space, especially with the Covid pandemic, so the group is small and intimate. Tour guide welcomed questions and encouraged us to stop and take pictures as we desired. Definitely will be bringing the kiddos back next trip. Thanks RSN!! Keep up the amazing work
