This my 1st time in Washington DC and I wanted to see the historical sites and only had a little time. This was the best way to see most of the important sites and get some background information. Charlie was my guide and he was great!@!!

Our Tour guide Dwyane was very friendly and knowledgeable. The sites, there were many, were amazing, just enough time for an introduction to each. One additional plus, many of the bus tours advertised open top/side buses. Can’t tell you how grateful I was to get back to an air conditioned bus on a hot, muggy summer night. Thanks

Disappointing
Margaret_C

We have been on a night tour of the monuments with a different company. That one was superior in every way. This experience was second rate at best. First they tried to put me and my son on a bus where we couldn't sit together. Once that was resolved, we were on a bus with a driver/guide who was 1) friendly & polite, 2) knowledgeable but 3) hard to understand. He mispronounced most places and names so that of you didn't know of what or whom he was speaking you would be clueless. Lastly, the tour lasted much longer than scheduled and unnecessarily so. At 10:15 - the 3.25 hour mark - with 4 monuments to go, we left the tour. Traffic was not bad, the driver was just very slow and sometimes pulled over to talk. Recommend going with an operation that employs separate driver and guide.

thank you for taking the tour with us. This is the high season and the busiest week of the season. For that reason we recommend everybody come early so that they can be seated together. We're so sorry that you didn't understand our tour guide. However he's a Washingtonian born and raised in the USA. Sorry if the tour took longer but sometimes we cannot shorten the tour and not show all the monuments that are on the schedule. Zuma

Great family tour!

We decided to do a night tour because my oldest daughter really wanted to see the city at night. Our tour guide was Charles and he was nothing short of amazing. The tour, in and of itself, was fascinating, but Charles really made it memorable. His knowledge of the city, it's monuments and memorials, came through in his anecdotes and stories. You could really tell that he loves the city! If you can do this tour, it really is beautiful to be able to see everything lit up at night.

Great tour But
Tim_B
, Jun 2022
We went on a Saturday night in June. Very hot night so air conditioned bus was a good choice over open air busses . Charles was our driver . He was very knowledgeable about DC. However, he tried to impart so much knowledge that he drove too slow and talked too much. What was advertised as a 3 hour tour was closer to 4. That left little time to get out and see monuments and attractions. Barely enough to get a quick picture. Sometimes only 15-20 minutes to go and come back. At Lincoln Memorial he stopped the bus at the location an talked for an additional 10 minutes before we were let off bus. We had to see like 3 monuments in 25 minutes or so. The Lincoln,WWll and the Korea . We never made it WWll. I would rather more time actually visiting and less time driving while listening. We really did the enjoy the tour but with improvements it would be so much better. Nice touch was that he had cold waters in cooler underneath that you could have when stopped. That was much appreciated on a hot night . I would do this tour again but would hope for more time at certain places.
