very informative and friendly tour guide! DC is beautiful at night! so happy we took this tour, our tweens loved it too!
Great option for a company team building event! Many of our team members work remotely, so it was nice to get the team together and see the monuments decorated for the holidays and take group photos. Our driver was very knowledgeable and flexible with the amount of time we spent at each monument. Great value too!
Took the tour our first night here. Beautiful perspective of our national monuments. Good weather helpful.
Seeing the monuments and places of interest in the moonlight were spectacular! I would recommend it !!
The tour guide was knowledgeable and very helpful.
Loved the small van !!!
Bobbie is an absolutely wonderful tour guide. He entertains, enlightens and educates while making everyone feel as welcome as possible. I would suggest this tour for anyone who only had a short time to visit the memorials as this is one stop shopping, so to speak. A delightful experience!
The tour was awesome! Our guide was Bobby, who is very knowledgeable and funny!
My family really enjoyed the tour though it was a little long after walking and touring all day. The monuments are beautiful at night and the tour guide was very informative.
If you have a short time and want to see a lot, this is the tour to take.
This tour has everything!! Perfect size group about 10. Most comfortable and roomy vehicle over sized van. We saw all the sights like the Capital, White House, Navy Memorial, Jefferson Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, MLK Memorial, Vietnam and Koren Memorial and other historic buildings and sites. We were given time to get out at most of the sites to take pictures and to enjoy the sites. I have been on many tours over my traveling years and the best part of this tour was our guide. He was not just a guide, he was a historian and entertainer of a perfect balance. We heard a lot of history mixed with a lot of humor. He could not have been any better. If you have the time this is the tour you should not miss!!!
The tour was great. I have done tours before on a large bus, I enjoyed traveling on the van and talking with the other tourists.
My guide was fantastic and managed to connect with all of us.
Our tour guide Don, was not only professional and knowledgeable, he was friendly and super passionate! He knows all about DC. BEST thing was he gave us a tip on how to go the next day to the African American Museum of History and Culture - we got in! Thanks to Don. Our two sons, ages 13 and 15 even loved it. Teenagers! That is saying a lot! Thank you DON!!
Comfortable van, great tour guide, and the right amount of stops and time to take pictures and see the sights! Great tour for the money!
This trip was really enjoyable. Our driver was very informative and the stops were breathtaking. Definitely need to spend more time in D.C. to take in all that area has to offer. Additionally, we need to thank Viator who were very helpful in overcoming a scheduling issue we encountered. Great customer service!!
Very nice tour. We were on a minibus. Our driver was well versed. make sure to bring comfortable shoes. Great tour for those with limited time.
Really enjoyed this trip and again the guide was fantastic. Lovely to see these monuments both in the day and the evening tour. Really special.
Our tour guide was awesome. He had great facts about the city but also good humor mixed in. It was a small group. We loved getting out at the different monuments to walk around and get pictures. It was beautiful at night. I would highly recommend.
I would give this tour more than 5 stars, if that were an option! WOW!! This night time tour of the monuments was AMAZING and so much more than we were expecting. We thought we would be in a standard 15 passenger van. This beautiful, new luxury van pulled up and our jaws dropped. It had giant windows, reclining leather seats extremely comfy and ice cold A/C. very important in July with 90 degree heat! Our driver was friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable of the area and monuments that we saw on the tour. He also provided a large cooler full of iced down bottled water. No charge - no limit! This is by far the best way to see the main sights and monuments/memorials in DC. I highly recommend this tour!!! If we ever go back to DC, we will do it again! Thanks for an awesome time!! :
