Chris was our guide and Ali was our driver. They were great! Friendly and extremely knowledgable. Happy to take photos, answer questions, let us have good amount of time at each site and were happy to accommodate people staying in the bus as it was a very cold night. As an international visitor the information from Chris about the architecture, sights and history of Washington DC and America was great!
The sights we were able to see are definitely worth seeing at night. An amazing way to see the city.

We loved the night tour, and our guide John A. and driver Osei were fabulous. We had intended to use the night tour as an overview of the area at the beginning of our trip and then revisit the monuments during the day, but honestly, they look so wonderful and dramatic all lit up at night, and the crowds were much lighter, that we didn't bother going back to some of them during the day at all. Along with our purchase we also received a tour of Arlington Cemetery which we had just planned to see on our own, but the tour was so much better than what we would have seen/done on our own...highly recommended.

Our tourguide was fabulous. So glad we went at night because the Korean Memorial is one that definitely should be seen then!

We were in Washington DC for only a short time and this tour gave us a nice taste of some of the great things the city has to offer. I plan to return and take a more lengthy tour of the historic monuments and sites!
