Roschell who met us at the stop to provide us our tickets went so much further with her excellent service and more information. Her friendliness and knowledge as well with her articulation of what we needed to do was amazing.

We have done the big bus tours in multiple cities, and DC was great too. they didn’t have a live person talking to you. However, they did give you have headphones in which you plugged into the seats in front of you and you can hear everything. Great price for all the stops we were able to do and great history
Amazing experience

Calvin and India were truly the best! India made my ride very comfortable while helping others in time of need. Calvin made sure me and my family go on and off the bus safely providing us information and good communication. Thankyou big bus!

I'm accustomed to using a competitor bus and I did not feel this tour held up to the other ones in it's class. I did like that there were indoor and outdoor seating but it felt like the drop on/drop off locations were too far away to be as helpful in navigating the city. It wasn't terrible, just wasn't the best one I've been on.
Disappointed no live guide

This was good for getting around all the popular tourist attractions, the only downfall was the fact it wasn't a live guide. We just had the headphones to listen to a recording, it would have been so much better with a live guide.
