The hop on hop off tours are a great way to see the many attractions D.C. has to offer. You can get on and off as often as you like. Buses stop every 30 minutes. The drivers we encountered were entertaining and informative.

It is What It Is. self directed. They drop you off - you go visit. Suppose two day is good if you know where you want to go and know what you want to do. Guide/drivers Cam and JR were good.
