Arlington Cemetery Loop valid for two consecutive days from date of trolley use. Blue Loop inclusion has no value and cannot be sold or transferred.
We may not be as old as the monuments, but with over 30 years and 8 million guests, we’re DC’s most experienced sightseeing company. Because of that, we know the quality of your tour doesn’t depend on the mere number of tour stops, so we’ve carefully crafted our tour route, selecting the right stops at the right places to maximize your time in the city. Top that off with the best tour guides and DC’s only 100% satisfaction guarantee and you’ve got the recipe for an unforgettable vacation. Ready to go? Then hop aboard Old Town Trolley, the attraction that takes you to the attractions!
Our convenient and continuous tour loop takes you to the BEST of DC, which as the authorized tour company of Arlington National Cemetery, now includes a tour of one of our nation’s most hallowed grounds. We hold all of our tours to the highest of standards, and we’re committed to providing you with the best sightseeing experience possible.
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.
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.
Please note that Washington DC is a city of parades, festivals, motorcades and of course, traffic. These events may cause delays in the arrival of a trolley at your stop or result in having to take an alternate route.
Visiting with friends and family that don’t speak English? Our new exclusive foreign language app is here to help! Built with GPS tracking technology, you can now enjoy live narration in 7 different languages – Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Italian, Chinese, and Japanese. Once you purchase your ticket, we’ll provide you with instructions on how to download the app. Then sit back, relax, and enjoy all the sights and sounds via a fully-narrated tour through our nation’s capital.
All US guests must provide a State or Government Issued picture ID. Visitors 16 and 17 may present a valid school ID. All foreign guests must present a PASSPORT. Foreign ID Cards will not be accepted. If you ride the Shuttle over from the Lincoln Memorial without proper ID, you will be denied entry into the Cemetery and you must provide your own transportation back to the Lincoln Memorial. For security reasons, we will not be allowed to pick you back up on Memorial Drive. We apologize for any inconvenience. These changes and requirements are beyond our control.
