It would have been much better to have a live guide. The audio didn't identify many of the buildings and it was difficult to understand at times. Our bus broke down but our driver was very nice and helpful.

Easy process checking in. Everyone was friendly and courteous. The Red Loop covered all of the monuments and important buildings tourist want to see, and the price was reasonable.

My wife and I have enjoyed using Hop On/Hop Off buses in a lot of our travels, but this was our worst experience. Nothing to do with HeadOut but with Big Bus. We stopped at the Washington Monument and walked to the WWII memorial, then walked to the closest stop. We waited more than 80 minutes for the bus to arrive.... there was heavy traffic but in the same time we saw 6 local buses drive by from the same general area. When we tried to use it today, we were told the buses couldn't get to the tidal basin, therefore, they couldn't make a normal loop or stop where we wanted to get. Probably should have rated even lower than I did but again, the problem was with Big Bus and not HeadIut.

Everyone was extraordinarily pleasant and upbeat. The guys on the street that were helping people navigate into getting tickets and all of that were lovely. It's always nice to see that in this these days. Truly, I saw a few of them take an extra measure to make sure that customers were able to navigate their way through things. Good job all.

It was great getting to see all the attractions of the city without the hassle of transportation to each seperately. I could not have done it on my own. The mobile application is a great addition as well, getting to know each stop with the attraction nearby to check.
