Amazing monuments at night

There are walking tours and there are bus tours, but this unique eCruiser tour provides an entirely new perspective on the city of Washington, DC and its many famous landmark locations by the light of night. 

Meet the guide and the rest of the small-group at 12th and Independence Ave. SW, the Smithsonian Metro Stop at the base of the Department of Agriculture Building. Then climb aboard a nifty eCruiser vehicle — an open-air, eco-friendly electric cart that offers as much in style as it does with substance. 

See the Washington Monument lit up for the evening; the Thomas Jefferson and Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorials, illuminated by indirect lighting from the Tidal Basin; the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial, featuring cascading waterfalls and scenic sculptures; and the National World War I and World War II Memorials, with a spectacular fountain display.

There’s also the Lincoln Memorial, the Korean War Veterans Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the White House, Capitol Hill and the world-famous dome of the United States Capitol, plus the United States Supreme Court Building and the Library of Congress. Along the way, hear the historic stories and facts that make the city of Washington, DC one of the most popular tourist destinations in the United States.

Our tour guide Rachel was very pleasant and informative. We had a beautiful night and after a long day of being on your feet, this was a great way to see the Mounuments in the Moolight. Would recommend, this tour is small and you don’t have to wait on bus size crowds.

Our tour guide, Nima, was great. It was only his second tour by himself and he was knowledgeable, friendly, flexible, and customer service oriented. I am from DC but took people new to DC on trip. It was a nice express tour. It gave my party a tour where they could get their bearings of the city. I like the open cart so you can get a breeze, hop on and off easily, and have a small group. I say it is a good overview but would recommend another/longer tour if you would like to dig in at the sites. There is not enough time to stop for lengthy periods at sites. You would probably need one of the 3.5/4 hour tours. I liked getting an overview and then deciding what my party wanted to see more of the next day.

Washington’s monuments are amazing. Add moonlight and smaller crowds and it makes for a magical night. The small group, open air, and fabulous tour guide add up to a perfect experience. We went on the tour with a group of 6 and it was really memorable. I won’t miss the chance to recommend it to anyone visiting DC.

Wonderful tour! Our guide, Chris Anderson, was very entertaining and knowlegable about all the site and history surrounding them. Chris is a DC local and prided himself on that even providing a list of recommended places to eat. It was a cold night and the carts had plastic sides zipped during the tour. My only suggestion would be on cold nights to make slightly longer stops to get more photo ops, since the plastic windows hindered that a little. Chris dropped me off at one of his recommended restaurants and suggested the chili. It was on point and possibly best chili I've had

This is such a beautiful way to see the monuments. I've lived in the area in the past so have seen them multiple times, but never like this. Being in the electric car made the trip slower, so it was easier to see more. Seeing everything lit up at night was a unique view, especially as we were able to get some gorgeous sunlight photos as the evening changed to night. The tour guide doubled as our driver. She had lots of interesting historical information to share. All in all, a great opportunity to see the city in a different way.

A lot of fun! Chris, the guide, was very knowledgeable and friendly. He took us to all of the main monuments and imparted other DC lore along the way. Make sure you ask about bathroom breaks up front and dress warmly on cold nights. Highly recommend!
