Great tour - Sally was a knowledgeable and enthusiastic tour guide. We loved visiting so many monuments and learned a lot. The tour was about 3.5 hours so plan ahead to be out until about 11 pm.

Unique and worth it! - This was an exceptional tour. James was very knowledgeable and provided commentary at every stop. Our driver Chris was also excellent. Great opportunity to see the sites in the cooler evening and lit up. Perfect start to a DC trip to get an idea of what to go back to in the daytime!

Must do! - The tour guide was phenomenal and definitely has a knack for keeping people engaged. Tyrone is amazing and deserves recognition for his work. He was very knowledgeable and very open to answering any questions the group might have had. The tour itself is awesome and would benefit only if maybe somehow the Jefferson and FDR Memorials were included but not a dealbreaker. Would take this tour over again multiple times!

The Best Evening Tour - The full moon came during our tour and followed us to every site. It was special. Because it was a very hot day, the night was so much better. Both our guide, Sally, and driver, Gotfreid, were excellent.

Worth seeing at night! - Seeing the monuments in the evening light. It made them even more beautiful. I’m so glad I did this tour. The only thing I would have liked would have been more history about the monuments. The stops were very rushed and it seemed like essential details were left out.

Meh - The tour was informative. However, the guide was way too long winded. She talked too much on the bus about peripheral details, hardly got off the bus at the stops, the tour went an hour past time which put out parking in jeopardy. She could have talked a lot less between stops and budgeted time better per monument. Some of the stuff was not visible at all at night which was a let down. Overall a bit overpriced for the experience.

Don’t recommend - I liked our guide but the tour itself was not worth it. We did not stop 10 times. When we did stop it was rushed. The bus was very very packed and even though I was there early I had a bad seat. The windows are tinted so the stuff you pass is not really sight seeing. Some times only one side of the bus gets to see certain things.
