Good if short on time

Arlington is big and would be challenging to see without the trolley. We wanted a quick overview and wanted to see the changing of the guard. The tour itself is very fast and at times we weren’t able to see what the tour guide was pointing out because it moves so fast. It worked well for us but if you want a more in-depth tour you would have to venture off the trolley.

The tour was fine, but very difficult to purchase tickets. I paid for tickets, but could not retrive them. I may have lost my money and had to buy at gate. Cost less because of senior rate and military rate.

This is an amazing cemetery to visit. The history, beauty, and sadness all combine for a lasting impression. The hop on hop off trolley was so helpful now that we are older and can’t walk like we did in our younger days. One day visiting doesn’t give it the justice it deserves.

Inaccurate information

Information on where to "hop-on" the tour was inaccurate. We waited at a "stop" for 30 minutes, trying to figure out what to do.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2021
I am confused, were you inside the Cemetery? Did you hop off at one of the stops and have to wait? Please me more information so I can assist you. I can be reached at guestrelations@historictours.com
