Highlight of our trip, a real treat to see the monuments and neighborhood from atop the bus, with less people around, and seeing the monuments by night. Driver was very safe and entertaining and informative friendly guide.

This tour was exactly what we were looking for. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and we were able to see all of DC's famous monuments and attractions in only a few hours. We got excellent pictures! Our tour was just about 3 hours even though it was advertised as 2 - 2.5 hours long.
