Traveller Tips

And if walking is difficult for you this is the best way to see Arlington.
Having a ride to the highlights was a must for this senior traveler!
One thing , if the tram could wait for 15 min, that would be great.

Well worth your time!
RosemaryC_M, Sept 2023
Tomb of unknown soldier change of guard was a beautiful tribute to our soldiers. Also, the knowledge of our guide on tram was appreciated and gave us a broader understanding of the history of this cemetery. Money well spent!
A Great Visit
Deborah_L, Sept 2023
Took my daughter to Arlington. She had never been there before. She found it very educational and was surprised by the education she gained.
Some confusion
Carol_G, Sept 2023
We were at Arlington House and waited quite a while for the next tram. One came but wasn't sure it was the same tour. When one came it went directly back to the visitor center
Hallelujah. God is here
Catherine_H, Sept 2023
So moving. So beautiful. This was an unforgettable, beautiful experience. Thank you America We are from U.K. never experienced anything like this before. A truly moving and inspirational memorial. Feel very privileged to have visited this place and the changing of the guard was an additional god centred experience. Thank you
Solemn visit
christine_h, Sept 2023
The grave of the unknown soldier and changing of the guards. So much respect for those that have fallen.
Meaningful Visit to Sacred Grounds
BillieSue_M, Sept 2023
Our tour of Arlington was very informative as well as comfortable. It was a little drizzly, but that didn’t interfere with the tour! Our guide was well versed in details about the people buried in the cemetery. My parents are both buried there so the tour was very meaningful too.
Trip to Arlington Cemetery.

Wonderful day! Saw my Uncle's grave. The guides were great. My sister was in a wheelchair and they were so helpful
Once in a lifetime, memorable
Sherri_P, Sept 2023
One in a lifetime event. There was a heat warning in effect, so that could have been better. The tour and tour guides were fantastic and courteous. Thank you!
We enjoyed an outstanding visit to Washington DC

Great value
Shelley_J, Aug 2023
Great way to see arlington without having to walk the entire way. In addition you get to hear the history and information from the guide.
Beautiful Day
Andrew_H, Aug 2023
I’ve been to Arlington Cemetery several times but decided to do the hop-on/off when my sister visited. I really appreciated someone else giving the tour, haha Our first tour guide had a wealth of knowledge about the cemetery and plots. There is so much to learn other than the three main stops and he taught both of us quite a bit. He could be heard clearly in the microphone as well. It was a perfect morning, in the mid 70s, which made the experience all the better.
Sobering experience. Every American should visit this monument.
Eric_F, Aug 2023
The massive number of gravestones of the heros for the defense of our nation. This reminder of how fragile peace is.
Great tour
Cheryl_S, Aug 2023
The guides on this tour are all very knowledgeable about the area and its history. They keep the tour interesting by telling stories about different people buried at Arlington. Last time I came here we walked-never again! The ride saves your legs on the hills! Well worth it!
A great way to see the entire cemetery
Amanda_A, Aug 2023
This trolly tour was excellent. The ride was smooth and the guide was engaging. Definitely consider the trolly if visiting as the cemetery is vast.
Good Tour
Kris_E, Aug 2023
There was a storm that damaged part of the cemetery so we had an abbreviated tour. The tour directors were knowledgeable. The grounds are beautiful. I wish the Iwo Jima statue was part of the tour. It’s far to walk and is a must see for everyone. It is truly breathtaking.
I had no experience...
Colleen_W, Aug 2023
I had no experience because Arlington Cemetery was closed on August 1, 2023 due to a storm the previous weekend. Please inform me how to apply for a refund.
More stop’s need
richard_b, Aug 2023
The stops were ok, I would like to have had more of the stops to see other & all parts of the cemetery. You missed the shuttle crews.
What a shame!
Joseph_K, Aug 2023
Bought tickets, showed up and was very rudely told they were closed today. Parking lot attendant or whatever they were swarmed the Uber we took and began yelling at the driver. When we got out they were saying, "you need to leave", "should of checked on line" (we bought tickets from the Arlington website the day before. What a shame these buffoons are the 1st thing you encounter when going to see such a sacred memorial.
