Our guide was very knowledgeable, but more importantly, very entertaining. The tour was a wonderful opportunity to see all of the D.C. monuments lit up at night. I would do this again.

Highlight of our 4 days in DC! Our tour guide, MJ (bus #348), was awesome...informative and hilarious! Don’t know how he drives and talks so much, at the same time...effortlessly. Thank you for making our trip!

We took the VIp tour, it was great tour money well spent. Chris the guide did a fantastic job I was amazed by his knowledge. Would definitely recommend this tour. We also took the Trolly tour at night, MJ also did a fantastic job narrating, he was very funny and entertaining. But this was on our last night and we were too tired to get off the bus just enjoyed the sights from the bus.
