Include the pit stop. Guests will appreciate the opportunity to freshen up and grab anything they might want to have with them for the reception that they didn’t need during the ceremony. The last time I went to a wedding with a gap, I actually changed into a different dress for the evening reception. Obviously that required time at the hotel. I wouldn’t worry about your guests missing the bus to the reception; ten minutes is not a long walk, and if you include maps in your Out of Town bags then most adults can be trusted to be competent enough to navigate that short a distance on foot.

I think your guests will enjoy the tour around DC if so many of them are from out of town, so that is a nice gesture. But I might actually have the bus stop by the hotel before the tour, too, in case some guests would prefer to take a nap rather than participate in the tour. This would be especially relevant for older guests and/or those who have just had a long journey to the area.
