Not worth the money

Tram was only running every hour. Most of the main attractions were closed to work. Tram did not offer senior discount on website.

Wasn’t allowed opportunity to enter our military discounts. Paid much more than we should have. Not their fault, but the announcers talked way too fast! They had too many things to point out!Also would have been better to be able to get off and catch the tram anywhere, rather than designated locations.

Very knowledgeable staff and very Beautiful place. Although disappointed we couldn't see the changing of the guard because of construction. People come from afar to see this. It should stay open somehow even during construction.

We arrived at Arlington at 10am. It was 1045am before we were put on a bus to begin the tour. After watching the noon changing of the guard, it was another 40 minutes before we were able to get on another bus. The whole set up seemed very disorganized. Having said that, and having walked 20 miles around DC in the previous 2 days, we decided we needed to ride and it's the only option. I overheard the tour guide and the driver wondering why ticket sales weren't stopped when things were so backed up, so I don't think our experience was unusual.

We were sold a bill of goods, we were told to meet at a certain place and paid it up or a fortune to get there, only to find out there was no car waiting for us to then go and get another Uber to another destinations, only to find out that no one ever heard of this to a company, they refused to refund her money and made us feel terrible, still waiting on a refund

There is a lot to see and learn about. Such a beautiful place and the employees are knowledgeable and friendly even in the bitter cold! Only negative in my trip was that half the stops were closed the day I visited.

When thinking of going to Washington DC, my first and foremost goal was to visit Arlington National Cemetery and the Hop-On Hop-off bus was the best way to do this. The views from out tour trolley were wonderful and those from the places we stopped were even better. The tour guide was very informative and had just the right demeanor that you would expect of the person that has the responsibility to describe this holy place. We stayed to watch the changing of the guard twice. It was amazing!

Excellent guide. However, at tour's start, no help loading walker, was told to just put it where I could fit it. A different staff came forward and helped me load it. Need better accessibility for disabled.
