It was worth the money!
Has lots of stops, one of which was conveniently near our hotel.
I just wish they extend their hours at least till 7PM. This way tourists can maximize time even more. And also I wish there was an actual stop at the Pentagon memorial, so we can visit it next time.
Nevertheless, we plan to get the same tour next time we go to Washington. At least we don't have to worry about getting a ride to our next destination.
Got on this on a Holiday weekend and on the first day of the season so traffic was horrendous-good tour and probably great service at other times but when I went it took almost five hours to complete the whole loop. However, you will probably see many spots that you would not venture to as a tourist.
It was a great experience and best way to explore DC. Hop on and hop off is the best way to see the places of your choice.One suggestion is to extend the tour time beyond 5 PM so you can take the full advantage of your 48 hrs pass.
