Loved the tour. It was worth every penny to see DC lit up at night. Got great pictures and memories. Our tour guide Shawn was extremely knowledgeable and funny. Made it amazing.
Chris was the best... informational, relevant and entertaining. We had teenagers with us. The length of the tour was just right. Thanks Chris!
Terrific time. The best way to see the monuments at night. Our guide was very informative and made the experience come alive.
Absolutely the highlight of our trip! Allison was AWESOME!!! She was so friendly and knowledgeable! I would recommend the electric car tour to anyone!
3 adults and 3 kids took this tour and we all loved it. The open air car was fun and the small tour felt more personal. We all learned a lot from our tour guide. The kids rated it their favorite activity
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and kind. Started promptly, even a little early, since everyone was there.
This was a great tour. It was so fun zipping around the city at night. I particularly enjoyed stopping at the FDR and MLK memorials which we wouldn’t have seen on our own since they’re a bit off the mall. They are both spectacular and very worth visiting! Our guide pointed out tons of little insider info tidbits and it was great seeing everything lit up at night. My teens were initially grumpy and reluctant but midway through told me they only want to do night tours from now on!
this tour is awesome . i would highly recommend it. Chris was so great. take the time and book the tour
Best tour ever. Due to the size of the cart, the tour felt very personal. The guides are very knowledgeable. I highly recommend this tour.
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.
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.
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
Terrific tour. The lit monuments at night are wonderful. Our Tour Guide Tim was knowledgeable and fun to be with.
Guergana, our tour guide, was just great. She was animated and thorough, and it was clear she wanted it to be a good experience for us. We highly recommend this tour. It started our trip off very well! Thank you!! Tim Julia and Holly Harrison
Very enjoyable and informative tour....great tour guides and fun little vehicles
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.
We had a blast with Geurgana our tour guide. She is super knowledgeable and made the trip fun! History could be boring but not with Geurgana! Awesome guide and awesome tour!
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!
The host, Anna, was on time, very friendly and knowledgeable. There were two no shows but she still waited for 10 minutes in case they had got lost but it didn't impact on our tour as she made sure that we saw everything. It was very cold and the plastic sheets were down to keep out some of the cold. It did have an impact on taking random photos but overall it was worth it.
Lovely woollen covers to keep us warm certainly came in handy as it was bitterly cold.
The stop at the Lincoln memorial was a lot better than the one at the MLK one.
Overall, I really enjoyed it and would recommend it. Just be prepared for the weather.
