Beware: There is no air conditioning. In July air conditioning is a must. Only rode to one stop because of the heat. The staff was friendly.

It is the worst experience I had with a tour bus anywhere in the world. Customer service at the ticket booths were rude, most drivers were rude. In particular, an African American woman driver for the yellow route were reluctant to carry us by stressing time after time her bus going to hotels only with no guide despite my clear response that we don't care because we were stranded in rain with no other alternative buses. She was very rough to us when asked questions. I saw her rearranging or refunding some of the customers due to rainy day, but refused to do the same for us or offer any explanations when asked. She even shouted at me and then walked away. The bus is never on time and the audio system is broken. They also decided arbitrarily to skip many stops or delaying departure for one hour in the morning. There is no service and tour guides are not enthusiastic. No help, no hospitality, no service. Extremely overpriced too and I demand a full refund.

Good basic overview of the sights. Tour guides are ok. The company needs to invest some money in the buses. We saw 2 that were broke down, at one of the stops, and the one we sat on the bottom of (to stay out of the summer sun) needed a better air conditioner. Still had a good time, and it definitely cut down on the walking. DC is a lot of walking.
