Big Bus Tours Washington DC


In my earlier post, I used to emphasize the benefits of taking a ride on Big Bus Tours which enable you, as a tourist, to see the culture and lifestyle of the locals and learn about the historical buildings in the country closely, without concerning about the costs and trouble of getting public transportation in order to get there. I enjoyed taking the ride on Big Bus Tours with the concept of open top buses while traveling in Shanghai, China and Hong Kong. 

When I traveled to Washington DC, USA, I took the opportunity to take the ride on Big Bus Tours so that, I could see more interesting places outside the capital besides, visiting those popular Government Administration Buildings in Washington DC.

Big Bus Tours Washington DC offers day and night tours. However, the ticket prices are different for day and night tours. Day tours provide unlimited rides for all the loops within the Capital, Pentagon area and Dupont Circle but the night tour provides two hours ride daily which is always fully booked thus, it's advisable to reserve your seats upon purchasing your ticket. Even though you have booked the day tour but it's more interesting to visit the lit-up buildings in the Capital at night and learn more interesting facts from the local tour guide. 

For more information about the ticketing and tour packages in Washington DC, you can visit the official website of Big Bus Tours: http://www.bigbustours.com/eng/washington/custompage.aspx?id=washington_sightseeing_tour&gclid=
