Welcome to Washington DC

Hello, I'm Eric Holmes, General Manager of Old Town Trolley of Washington DC.

As seat of the government and an icon for the nation, Washington, DC is a place to learn about history and watch it in the making. For over 30 years, Old Town Trolley Tours has provided Washington DC sightseeing tours highlighting the best of the city. Hop aboard one of our trolleys and you’ll experience Transportainment, a delightful combination of transportation and entertainment. Our friendly conductors narrate the tour with a fascinating and fun mix of trivia and humorous stories. It will be our pleasure to guide you through the nation’s capital on one of our orange and green trolleys.

As a DC resident, I assure you that Old Town Trolley Tours is the best way to see the city. Because we cover the entire city, you can avoid costly parking and city driving. The tour is also designed so that you can hop on and off and explore on your own at any time. With frequent pickups at all our stops, this helps you avoid walking long distances.


Here are just a few reasons why Old Town Trolley is the best sightseeing tour in town:

  Tour of Arlington National Cemetery
  Frequent pickup service

  Hop on and off ALL DAY
  More than 100 Points of Interest
