Our family totally enjoyed the moonlight night tour by trolley. Our guide/driver was very informative. We covered many areas and had a chance to walk some of the sites. The highlight was the Roosevelt Memorial. We wish they had more lighting at the Vietnam Memorial. Tip: at the end of the tour if you are near your hotel asked to be let off instead of returning to Union Station. Oh, lots of restaurants in the station to eat before the tour. We did also see the White House bathed in pink for breast cancer awareness. Great tour.
Excellent tour. Reasonably priced. We needed a thorough tour that would work for my grandparents. They cannot walk long distances at all and so this was a terrific and safe and enjoyable way for them to see the city comfortably. Our guide was excellent. Super informative and friendly! Would most definitely go again. Only frustrating part was there was an event going on at the monuments so we could not see Lincoln, Vietnam, WW II, or Korean...certainly not the tour's fault though! Would highly recommend for those that may have some limitations or accessibility issues!
We were amazed at the number of people in line for this trip - they had to call in an extra trolley! Lucky for us, we were on that last trolley, so there was a little room to spread out. This is a great tour and I would do it again. Some of the places we stopped for a quick tour (Korean War Memorial and Vietnam Memorial) were not very well-lit, but we were inspired to visit again during daylight. All in all, it was a beautiful trip through the city and we couldn't have asked for a more informative, entertaining, and accommodating guide.
Adam was a fantastic tour guide - armed with interesting and often funny facts about the sights we were seeing. Wish we could have a longer stop at Lincoln/Vietnam/Korea especially given the crowds. I was disappointed that we didn't stop at the Jefferson Memorial given that it is one of the prettiest memorials in the city.
I believe it would be better if when we stopped at the Lincoln we had more time to see all 3 memorials Korea, Vietnam and Lincoln. I also believe it would be better to stop at WWII instead of the Iwa Jima Memorial. Several years ago we took Tour mobile. They are out of business now but I liked there tour alot better. Maybe you should look at what they did.
It was an experience to travel on a bike thru Washington...You have to bike on the sidewalk.
But everything we saw was very impressief...the war site especially the Korean Memorilal with
the supporting Wall...those grey soldiers...no expressions on thier faces.
Also the Vietnam monument and that from World War II everything broyght you back in
memory.....Washington Monument is under construction due to a earthquake.
Doing what: Washington DC Sites at Night Bike Tour
The photo on this page is not of the Vietnam Memorial - that is the Korean War Memorial.
The tour and guide were excellent. Only disappointing thing was the lack of lighting in certain areas (korean monument, Vietnam..) as it was too dark to take photos. Fortunately I had seen the Vietnam memorial in the daytime, but for the stops, the tour needs to stop where there are lights.
Guide did a fair job. The WW II Memorial is not on the tour. This is insane. It is one of the most important sites and newest. Not sure whose fault this is, but the Vietnam Memorial Wall was not lighted. Could not see the names.
I enjoyed seeing the monuments by night but we had trolley trouble so it extended our evening quite a bit past it's scheduled time. I wouldn't recomment this because while the monuments are beautiful,I really couldn't see any of the sights. I really wanted to see the Vietnam Memorial and it wasn't visible. What a disappointment.
Recommend the tour. The driver was informative and entertaining. It was a beautiful moonlit night (great luck/timing with that!) Rushed for time at the Lincoln/Korean War/Vietnam Memorials; only got to see two of three with time alotted. On the negative side, Viator did not notify the trolley co. of our reservation (discovered the day of the tour when we confirmed), but the trolley co. fit us in.
Note from Viator: Thank you for your comment. In case it isn't clear, Viator does not individually notify the tour operator of each individual who books the tour through our web site. As it says in the information section for this tour listing, "You must present a paper voucher for this tour. We will email a link to access and print your voucher at the Lead Travelers email address." That is all you should have to do to take this tour.
It is a must to call the local tour company the day before to confirm your reservation. The driver picked us up at a near by hotel & drop us off at our hotel. it was very nice of him. It was very dark at the Vietnam & Korean Memorial, not good to view at night. Overall, it's good value.
The stops at Lincoln, Vietnam and the Korean Monuments were too short to even see all three. Since the Iwo Jima monument was not well lit, it would have been better early in the tour!
I was disappointed in the Vietnam war memorial, it was very difficult to see in the dark. Our tour guide was very well informed, and kept the bus entertained.
I would have liked the stops to be longer. 20 minutes at the Vietnam War, Korean War, and Lincoln Memorials was very short. I also would have liked a stop at the WWII Memorial, which is most impressive at night.
