To echo other reviewers here - this tour is well worth the money! The buses are clean and comfortable, the recorded narration is informative and interesting, and certain drivers will augment the programming with other points of interest.
A few caveats: Make sure you print out your confirmation email from Goldstar! As others have said before, there are multiple "Hop On Hop Off" double-decker bus services at Union Station. The Goldstar instructions are misleading - the ticket booth was not anywhere near the parking deck, and your tickets are not on "Will Call." We found the desk/kiosk near the front entrance and the East Wing, and although the staff knew about Goldstar, they would not accept my confirmation number, or even me showing them my confirmation email via Blackberry. I was forced to go print the confirmation email from a nearby cell phone shop (Wireless Experts, Inc) that offered wi-fi access ($1 per page plus internet usage, and a $10 minimum for credit cards), and this was used as a voucher to basically purchase free tickets.
Also, while on the upper deck, stay in your seat and duck! We watched another tourist ignore these rules and attempt to change seats multiple times while in-motion. A telephone cable knocked his hat off, and we found him again the next day with a band-aid on his forehead after he apparently caught a tree branch.
Be careful when getting off the bus! The upper level is equipped with a camera that allows the driver to see when passengers are getting up to leave. However, some drivers tend to breeze through the lesser-used stops, and one didn't notice that we were leaving. I moved quickly, but the bus started moving again abruptly and my wife slipped and fell down a couple of stairs. The driver apologized, of course, but you may run into this as well.
Please don't let these minor snags dissuade you - the tour is awesome, these are the nicest double-deckers in the city, and they're a great way to get around town!
See the sights of the nation's capital from this open-top bus. The Yellow Loop is a hop-on, hop-off tour that encompasses 24 stops throughout the nation's Capital. This is the only double-decker bus tour that serves Georgetown and the National Cathedral.
During this tour you'll enjoy the National Cathedral, the Lincoln Memorial, Union Station, Georgetown, the White House and much more.
