Best idea to take the hop-on, hop-off bus tour. Enjoyed it very much. Even though the night tour was a bit delayed in starting, we had a great tour guide and it was well worth it. Also enjoyed having the 2 free additional activities to choose from. Great value for the price.

Had a wonderful time. All the drivers and tour guides were very helpful. Did the night tour too. I now know more about American history then that of my own country. Always on time, and even picked us up at an unscheduled stop. One driver took us right to our hotel. Thanks so much city sights.

As a vacation/birthday trip for my mother, I booked the night tour thinking it would be a unique experience. I was thrilled with how it turned out! The tour guide was thorough and knowledgeable, and there were ample opportunities to take photos. I would definitely book a tour again if 'm back in DC!

Tour varies with guides

Reviewed on 11/2/2015, By Ginny W.
We enjoyed our hop on/off tour on the Saturday and then night tour that night. The first tour guide was pretty good, the second, a younger woman was not very good, there was no one on the 3rd bus (and this would have been helpful), and the night-time guide was great. We appreciated staff noticing my husband with a cane while we were in line for the evening tour - they got us on the almost full bus so he didn't have to stand any longer. If we choose a tour again, we will use DC City Sights.

Great experience. Really liked the fact that we were picked up at the hotel at the beginning of the day. The thing we didn't appreciate was after the night tour round 10Pm we were told that we would be dropped of at our hotel if we asked which we nées and it didn't happen.

A really educated tour

Reviewed on 8/20/2014, By mike ross
Washington DC is a beautiful city at night it’s even more spectacular seeing it from a birds eye view. The driver stopped at all the sights so we can take pictures. The guide explained in depth about the famous, historical buildings and memorials that we saw. He was even able to answer all our questions that we had regarding the White House. If you want an educated tour I really recommend City Sights DC.
