This was an excellent tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and clearly very passionate about D.C. history. A night tour is an excellent way to see the monuments from a totally different perspective. A "must-do" for anyone visiting Washington D.C.
The trip was great. Beautiful scenic view of DC at night. Nice driver.. Bob...
Knew a lot about history, DC.
Take the trip. You will be glad u did.
Amazing tour. Seeing the monuments from daylight to dark, they transformed before your eyes. Our guide was bundle of knowledge with a fun approach. Never boring, always in awe of the sites, as well as the narration.
A great tour, and a nice way to start out the trip. The driver was friendly, and very accommodating.
We loved this tour !!! This is a must see !!! We hit all the main monuments by twilight and got a great history lesson to boot. Sooner Steve, our guide was fantastic !!!!!
The tour guide/driver was extremely knowledgeable about the area and gave us ample time to get off the bus and explore areas around the monuments. It is a great introduction to the city if you are visiting for the first time.

Our driver, Eric, was absolutely terrific. Very knowledgeable, and funny, too. It was a wonderful experience for our first visit to Washington, D. C. I recommend this tour to everyone. The monuments at night are spectacular.
Exceptional trolly driver / guide. Very good routing, was able to see memorials and lit buildings from various views, distant and close-up.
We booked tour for evening monument tour. If u look at your records u will find the muti cancelations, due to your reservation system not being kept up to date. Once we got our tour set the driver Dave was exceptional.
Mike should be awarded the tour guide historian extraordinaire award, he made the tour one of the most enchanting and historically enriched experiences I have ever had. I highly recommend this tour. Absolutely Amazing!!!!
Wonderful tour...well worth the money. My kids loved it (no walking for 2hrs) The tour director really went above and beyond with his narration. John was an excellent guide and is an asset to the company!
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.
We had a terrific time on this tour. A beautiful spring evening certainly helped a lot too! Gil was a great tour guide. We learned tons of fun facts about Washington. The stops for photos and leg-stretching were just the right length of time. I have been on 2 other night-time monument/memorial tours in Washington by other vendors and this was by far the best. Lots of value for the money.
Wow, our tour guide was awesome! I think his name was Paul, he was full of very interesting historical information and quirky jokes that kept everyone interactive. I'm not terribly into history but he made it enjoyable for everyone. Seeing the momuments at night was truly a sight to see, so beautiful! We also were allowed to go closer to the Capital building than other vehicals which allowed for great pictures. I would highly recommend this tour to all parties.
