Washington DC Night Tour is not hop on hop off; this is an escorted tour.
Big Bus Tours is not crossing Arlington Memorial Bridge due to recent repair work that has restricted access and prohibited vehicles over 10 tons from accessing the bridge. It is being re-routed so you can still visit Arlington National Cemetery, stop 12 and the Pentagon and Pentagon City, stop 13.
Due to the re-routing, some stops are out of sequence and are visited in the following order:
Red Loop: … 10, 11, 14, 15, 12, 16, 17…
Blue Loop: … 10, 11, 14, 15, 13, 16, 17…
