Tour guide was great! He was extremely knowledgeable and fun! He points out many details that we would otherwise miss. We had flexibility to choose what was most important to us. He also takes great photos.

This tour was great! It was a beautiful chilly evening to see the monuments at night. We did the later tour, so we could see things with not near as much of a crowd and full moonlight - highly recommend it! The negative about our experience was that our tour guide (Steve) was quite pushy about gratuity. He made multiple comments about tipping and got upset when one couple did not leave him a tip. It made for a VERY awkward ending to our tour. Otherwise, he was very knowledgeable throughout the tour.

This tour is worth every penny that it cost! Our guide, Shana was so much fun and very knowledgeable. The places she took us were wonderful. I really really enjoyed this tour. It’s a must to see the sights at night!

Wonderful views. Can hear your car mates and the guide easily. Easy in and out. Much better than a bus. William was funny and had useful tips on the museums. If you can choose your guide, pick him!!!

This was a great tour! Natalia was so sweet and knowledgeable. She told us so many interesting facts and gave us some really great recommendations for things to see and do in DC. I also loved the small vehicle. Everyone could sit by a window and have a good view. It was a small group - just 4 of us - so it felt like our own private tour of the city. I highly recommend this tour!

We wanted to be sure to see all the major monuments and top sights in DC and this was a fun and informative way to do it. Our guide was knowledgeable, interesting and fun. Also, the sights were stunning at night. And they even waited a few minutes for us when we were delayed on the Metro. We highly recommend this tour!

Our tour could not have gone better. The weather was perfect and our guide Montie was very knowledgeable. I grew up in the suburbs here but moved to the West Coast 30 years ago and Montie was still able to show me things I hadn't known. Highly recommend!

The city is simply stunning at night and Natalia, our guide, ensured we saw the best of it. She was extremely knowledgeable, as well as being excellent company, and I don't think we could have learnt as much, or seen as much in a short time, any other way. As well as taking us to the main attractions, and giving us time there to explore on our own, Natalie kept up a continuous commentary as we drove around, pointing out so many features we would otherwise have missed. The electric cart was comfortable and afforded us great views. An unexpected cloudburst at the end of our trip led Natalia to offer to take us directly back to our hotel so we wouldn't get soaked waiting for a taxi. Beyond the call of duty and much appreciated. We highly recommend this tour.

Being in a smaller group is the best way to see the monuments. It enables you to interact with your tour guide more easily. The monuments at night are more impactful than seeing them during the day. This is a must tour!

Our tour guide was Natalia who was absolutely wonderful. We rode to the highlights of DC, at each historical stop as well as along the way, Natalia gave us a detailed synopsis of the history as it related to each building. We especially enjoyed learning about the various architects who shaped and built the beautiful buildings in Washington. Thanks again Natalia, we will refer you to anyone visiting Washington.

Highly recommend this tour and tour company. Our guide Sam was so much fun and very knowledgeable. The sites at night were amazing. I accidentally left my sunglasses. I contacted the tour company and they promptly contacted me, located my sunglasses and drop them off to me at our hotel. I’m very grateful to them. Thanks for an awesome evening!!

It was raining beyond belief and I never thought they would be able to take us on this tour, but they did! They put down the plastic sides....for all the sides of the vehicle but not the back. Guess who was sitting in the back, facing the back of the car....me and my husband. It was a truly fun experience! We had the ponchos on that our driver, Nema, gave to us. We had the best views of DC and got exceptional photos. The rain let up and we went on to all the sites in comfort. Nema is super knowledgeable about DC, history, current events, world events. We enjoyed every minute of our trip thanks to Nema! Super fun trip. Don't miss it.
