Tour Updates

Due to the March for Life event taking place, Old Town Trolley DC will not be operating day tours on Friday, January 21, 2022.  The MBM tour will operate as scheduled.

The National Park Service has announced the reopening of the Arlington House, effective at noon on June 8, 2021.  Entry to the house requires timed tickets for all guests over the age of 2, and may be reserved at Recreation.gov.  There is a processing fee for each ticket, and the limit is 6 tickets per reservation.

Space will be limited, so it is recommended that tickets be reserved in advance, but walk-up, day of tickets may be available if time slots are not sold out.  Guests taking the tram tour should allow for additional time, as the tram tour does not guarantee arrival for your scheduled Arlington House tour.

Please note that Arlington National Cemetery Tours hours are 9am – 4:30pm.

Guest who purchase the reservation-based Old Town Trolley tour, either Gold or Platinum which includes ANC, may utilize their tickets anytime during those hours.  While the OTT tour is reservation-based, ANC Tours is first come, first served. Arlington Cemetery portion of the Gold and Platinum Pass can be accessed by Metro or Rideshare.
