The tour guide was...

The changing of the guard...

The changing of the guard at The Tomb of the unknown soldier along with the eternal flame at the grave of JFK and the tour at the Arlington House were my favorite parts of the tour..
Arlington in 30 mins

Great way to see Arlington if you only have a little bit of time or do not want to walk it! Very knowledgeable tour guide as well.
Information lacking
, Sep 2021
We didn't have a car and finding out that the promised transportation to the cemetery from the corner meet spot was not in effect. Nowhere was this communicated and we found out after having walked all the way to the meet up spot. We were too tired and weren't going to hire an Uber or use the metro, so we never went. Make sure the description is accurate
Very informative
, Aug 2021
I enjoyed listening to the guide explain The description of the various people buried there. The description of ran marker how tall and the weight was very interesting.
Loved it!!
, Aug 2021
Quick and very friendly customer service. Very nice explanation of points of interest. Teenagers learned a lot about history during the tour.
Not enough rides running
, Aug 2021
It ran every 30-35 minutes which was so stupid. I got there at 1:30 thinking I would have plenty of time to do the 2 stops I wanted to see. Only could do 1 stop cause it took so long for the next trolley to come. I was so upset.

Great tour but more trams needed
, Aug 2021
All the stops were perfect. The JFK, changing of the guard, were great. Driving around and just seeing all the markers was humbling. The one Major issue was the trams were totally full and they needed more of them. It took three hours (partly because a funeral in progress held up the tram), because of Long wait lines each stop. More trams are needed.
