ORANGE TOUR LOOP – HOP ON & OFF ALL DAY

Our tour traverses the National Mall with stops at several Smithsonian Museum buildings. You’ll have a chance to explore the National Monuments and Memorials (Lincoln, FDR, Washington, and Jefferson), as well as the United States Capitol, the Supreme Court buildings and much more.

RED TRANSFER (10-15 MINUTE RIDE)

Arlington National Cemetery requires that we use special tour vehicles to navigate the grounds. Therefore, a transfer of tour vehicles is required for the Arlington portion of our tour. Our red transfer shuttle will pick you up at the Lincoln Memorial (Stop #13) and drop you off at the cemetery where you’ll then hop aboard our Arlington National Cemetery touring vehicles for your tour of the cemetery grounds. You’ll have the opportunity to honor the brave men and women who’ve given their lives defending the ideals of our great nation. Witness the Changing of the Guard, visit John F. Kennedy’s gravesite, and explore the Memorial Amphitheater and Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. When you’re finished at Arlington, catch the shuttle again and we’ll take you back to the Lincoln Memorial so you can continue your tour of the city.

WATER TAXI

Your ticket includes round-trip water taxi to Georgetown, Alexandria Marina or National Harbor** with scenic views of D.C.!

Monuments by Moonlight Tour

When the sun goes down, Washington turns into a different city, and Old Town Trolley Tours knows just the right way to show off the Capitol City at night! Experience top-rated Washington DC Night Tours with experienced tour guides.

Our professional tour guides will take you right to some of the city’s most popular monuments and let you see the city in a different light.

Along the way, you’ll be transported back in time as you ride along the same streets the presidents have traveled, and hear historical tales and anecdotes about the city’s fascinating history, such as The Curse of the Hope Diamond and its legacy of death and despair and the Medal of Honor winner who donated his amputated leg to a museum and often visited it!
