Washington DC is so replete with history that it can be hard to experience it all. Tours are a wonderful place to start, but you only get to see what the tour covers. However, if you add a ‘hop on and hop off’ element to the tour, you can see the things you want to see and skip the ones you don’t. The ‘hop on and hop off’ feature allows you to spend extra time at the attractions that interest you and then rejoin the tour on the next bus! Check out a few of the tours available in DC.
