Great value for money. Our guide, Sooner Steve, was so knowledgeable and funny. We had a few mishaps on the tour with on of our group getting lost and one having a nasty fall but our driver took it all in his stride. Views and monuments are well worth seeing at nighttime. Highly recommended
Night monument tour.

We took the Moonlight Tour. The boarding of the tour was the worst part. It departs from the train station and is very hectic and the instructions to board are not very clear. The tour itself was good we got some good pictures and our guide "Batman" was very informative and a great guide. We had a great time!
Bad seats

The seats my family sat had horrible views of all the attractions and monuments. The guide was good but the design of the trolley style buses isn’t the best for sightseeing. We would have preferred the upper deck of a two story bus.
