What an amazing experience to visit these monuments at night. Leroy our driver was wonderful in explaining so much history about the monuments and buildings along the way! Highly recommend doing this. It was the highlight of our trip!
We had a little problem getting our group together on time but the driver made an extra stop to accommodate our people. We traveled through a number of different areas of the Embassies and Georgtown. A bit difficult to make some of these out in the dark. Overall we stopped at a number of monuments and I was able to get photos during our tour.
A terrific way to get an overview of the city with the convenience of hotel pickup! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. He was flexible in the time spent at each site and willing to make minor modifications as requested. I highly recommend this DC tour. The monuments are beautiful at night.
Found many positive things about our tour, including Johanas sharing many great facts with us at points of interest. However we did not appreciate his sharing his own political views including Hiroshima and Albert Einstein. Otherwise, enjoyed the tour greatly!
Highly recommend this tour and our guide Johannes who was so knowledgeable and courteous. He offered us another night when ours turned into a rain/thunderstorm night, and in fact changed it again when the weather didn't cooperate. Before it got dark, he took us past many of the embassies, through Georgetown and to the National Cathedral at sunset. Then was patient at each stop while we visited memorials, monuments and scenes across the various waters which was spectacular because of the rising moon. Comfortable bus, offered water bottles and small group of 9 people made it very enjoyable. Definitely a highlight of our trip.
This was a very nice way to see the monuments but there were a couple of problems. The company messed up the pick up date and then called to yell at us for not being at the hotel for pick up even though we explained the date was wrong. The tour was not the advertised length (2 1/2 hours rather than 4) and I thought we could have seen more monuments with the time we had. The driver/tour guide was very good though. Overall, the tour was frustrating and it is also frustrating that the company contracts out so you don’t know what you are going to get. This should be advertised.
The tour was better than expected. The driver was on time to pick us up and was very enthusiastic throughout the tour. He gave an awesome explanation of each of the monuments and the history of the United States.
