Old Town Trolley Tours provide sightseers with extensive, fully narrated tours of the national capital, taking tourists past both the heavy-hitting attractions and the little-known gems. This deal gets you a full-day pass (9 a.m.?5:30 p.m.) to hop on and hop off the trolley at any of its 19 stops. This means you can get on at the Washington Welcome Center, ride it until you're enticed by the hypnotic pilasters and cartouches of the Jefferson Memorial, then get on again at any other stop throughout the day. The full tour of Washington takes about three hours, and each tour is patriotically lead by a licensed tour guide, who'll tell historical anecdotes, share intriguing facts, and cast any tie-breaking votes in the Senate. Sit back and relax as your trolley smoothly takes you past Washington hotspots such as the National Mall and the Smithsonian.
