Fabulous! We were a little hesitant on taking our "spirited" 9 and 10 year old boys on a 2.5 hour nighttime trip. But they were enthralled and are still talking about "Mr. E" and all the things that they learned. Mr. E was an outstanding guide: funny, entertaining and highly knowledgeable about the D.C. area. Truly exceeded our expectations.
This tour was really great! Mr. E was entertaining and full of info. And tho I am certain he does this for all his tours, he made us feel like we were getting a special tour, with stops he doesn't normally make. My kids are 11, 10 and 7 and they enjoyed it as much as my in-laws who are in their 70s. I highly recommend this tour!
Good times! Try to board the last bus possible, you'll enjoy the darker skies. Too much sunlight leaving exactly at 7:30pm.
This was a great way to see DC at night.
Paris was great and I still learned new and interesting facts even after visiting so many times prior.
Tour guide, Jamie, was fantastic! I think that was his name. Great knowledge.
Our guide was excellent and we learned much history in an entertaining way. Nice job!
Great guide 'Mr E' took us around all the major sites a very personalised feeling tour as he added some extra favourite sites in DC of his own. Would highly recommend. Only improvement would be to improve signage and communication for the queuing system.But wouldn't let that put you off!
Highlight of out trip. Great for families as well. Was fun even in the rain!! Best way to see sights. Tour guide Jamie did a great job--highly recommended!
Da Vinci was an awesome driver and had tremendous knowledge of the D.C. area and the monuments!
The tour guide / driver was superb. Great sense of humour. The monuments at night were great.
Took the evening moonlight tour out of Union Station. The weather was not great but our tour guide "Adam" made up for it in spades! Very knowledgeable, funny and brought historic significance to all that we saw, both when we stopped and along the way.
Ask for him if you can and jump on his trolley!
We thoroughly enjoy our tour. Unfortunately it rained (and rained hard). Our guide/driver Vince was fantastic. We plan to "try again" with better weather, but will request Vince as our driver again !!!!
I have toured DC during the day, but the night tour is AMAZING!! Mike was our guide and did a great job. He told us many interesting facts that I had not heard before. He was super friendly, a great people person! I recommend this tour to adults and children age 6 and up. There were all ages of folks on our trolley, including a cute 3 year old. She became upset when she lost something and it was tough to hear Mike for a bit. The only recommendation I wish would have been made to us was regarding parking. It was Sunday and not nearly as busy as during the week days, but being from out of town, we had no clue where to park. Too bad the tour companies can't work with the senate lots to utilize those parking lots that sit empty for the weekends! I really would suggest you not leave DC without this breathtaking tour! These folks are very professional and friendly, from the phone to the trolley! I would give more than 5 stars for this, but you only gave me an option of 5. :0)
The tour was great! It was a quick way to get in seeing all the monuments. Our tour guide, Dave was pleasant and he made it a fun experience. Some of the monuments were just "drive by's" but for us that was fine since it wasn't our first trip to Washington but seeing them lit up at night was really cool. It's not a tour that you would go on if you want to spend time at each monument. If you want to go inside the Capitol, for instance, you would have to do that on another tour or on your own. There's just not enough time to spend that long at each monument. Again, for us, that was not important. Our main objective was to see the monuments at night and this tour far exceeded our expectations!
