Washington D.C., District of Columbia
So worthwhile! Don't know if ours was a lucky exception, but the Moonlight tour exceeded our (mine and my three teenaged kids) expectations in every respect:
the clarity and quality of information/anecdotes, our driver's non-jaded(!) personality and grasp of his material, the scope and duration of the tour, as well as the time(!) and patience afforded us at each stop. It was an unexpected surprise to realize that the tour also encompassed driving over to the Arlington cemetery area to visit the Iwo Jima monument and take in that particularly dramatic view of Washington below, as well as a variety of other points of interest in that historic corner of Virginia. As mentioned, we greatly appreciated the fact that - unlike most tour companies - we were never made to feel rushed or "on a meter"; in fact, our driver generously made up the extra time we lost with our half-hour late departure. We lucked out with the clear weather as well, which obviously provided ideal conditions for photography, so good to keep the forecast in mind as it's not just a 'sit on the bus' sort of tour. In short, worth every penny and every minute. Washington is clearly as gloriously photogenic at night as it is in the light of day.
