This was a very good experience and way to see all the sites you’ve come to DC to see. We rode the bus on two consecutive days and got off and on with no trouble. The earbuds and commentary pointed out all the buildings so you knew when to get off.

Very well. The course was very interesting. It's great to be able to get off and on the bus wherever you want. Better to do the activity over 2 days to do everything, it all depends on what you want to see. I recommend for a condensed visit to Washington.

U have to go to L’infant Plaza to start the route & exchange your online voucher for a ticket. I didn’t know that until after I took an Uber to the closest spot to my hotel and then realized I had to take another Uber to the plaza. Also there is only 1 day route red & blue r combined.Website needs to b updated!!
