Washington DC Old Town Trolley Tours

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.

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.

Visit our Union Station, the most visited destination in DC, serving as a transportation depot and retail center since 1908. See the Capitol building, Supreme Court, and Library of Congress on the East end of the mall. Visit the Smithsonian, the National Gallery, and the Museum of Natural History.

Learn about some of the country’s most significant presidents at the Jefferson Memorial, FDR Memorial, and Lincoln Memorial. Check out the International Spy Museum and the Koshland Science Museum. Don’t forget to check out that large white building at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue too.

DC Ducks

From Union Station we will waddle down to the mall where you’ll see the awe inspiring monuments and fabulous Smithsonian Museums. Then at the Potomac River you’ll splash down for a whole different look at the nation’s capital. From the land to the water, it’s ALL IN THE SAME VEHICLE!

Our “wise quacking” captains will entertain you with anecdotes, well researched historical facts and the corniest jokes you’ve ever heard!

An Adventure of a Lifetime
This isn’t just a tour…it’s an experience. Sit back and relax as our tour captains turn back the pages of history.

Land and Water in the Same Vehicle
Seeing Washington is one thing. Viewing it from the Potomac River is quite another. DC Ducks is Washington’s only thrill ride!

Something you Won’t Do on Any Other Tour
The Ducks return to land at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport under the approach pattern. Hold your ears as incoming aircraft pass over just feet from where you’re sitting …giving new meaning to sitting duck!

Guaranteed & Safe
Our Ducks are fully restored, U.S. Coast Guard approved vessels. We guarantee a safe and fun time that will delight every member of your party.
