Meet the guide and the rest of the small-group at 12th and Independence Ave. SW, the Smithsonian Metro Stop at the base of the Department of Agriculture Building.

See the Washington Monument lit up for the evening; the Thomas Jefferson and Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorials, illuminated by indirect lighting from the Tidal Basin; the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial, featuring cascading waterfalls and scenic sculptures; and the National World War I and World War II Memorials, with a spectacular fountain display.

There’s also the Lincoln Memorial, the Korean War Veterans Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the White House, Capitol Hill and the world-famous dome of the United States Capitol, plus the United States Supreme Court Building and the Library of Congress. Along the way, hear the historic stories and facts that make the city of Washington, DC one of the most popular tourist destinations in the United States.

Horrible - save your money

I don’t know whether the tour guides are the most disorganized people I’ve ever met, or whether they’re just dishonest, but I would not recommend. We showed up to find someone who told us that the tour had been canceled because of weather - fine, but we’d never been notified and had actually had called and emailed to confirm. It would have been nice to know that the tour wasn’t happening before I travels with a child across DC. Then I was told that I hadn’t been notified that the tour was cancelled because of weather because they’d actually bumped me from the tour the day before “because of space” (?!?). They hadn’t notified me of that, either. Now they’re refusing to offer a refund, because they say we’re signed up for another tour. We didn’t sign up for it. Save your money, save your sanity.

Great Value! Memorable Experience!!

Our guide Nick was knowledgeable and friendly! We enjoyed the tour immensely. I'm sure other tours have their perks, too- but a small group (in our case it was just our family of three) makes the experience more relaxed, intimate, and personal. Everyone I talked to on the phone and in person was nice, helpful, and ready to accommodate! I would recommend this tour and day it was completely worth the price!

It was great and fun but very wet I do not suggest for you to sit on the seat at the very back if it is going to rain. You will get drenched.

The electric cart provided limited protection against sudden downpour. Unavoidable but everyone and everything got wet. Passing motorists advised the driver that the carts lights were not adequate to see it in traffic which is disconcerting. Otherwise fun and informative tour.
