It was amazing to see the sights at night. Many things were explained well and with enthusiasm. Disappointed that the tour guide did not take us over to Vietnam Memorial.we went over by ourselves however had some anxiety that we would not catch up with the rest of the group. The young girl was truly enthusiastic but her use of incorrect English was not flattering.

What a wonderful evening with our tour guide during the twilight tour Deon was full of interesting stories about all the places we visited! And the bus ride on the top deck was an adventure. You have to do this!

Getting to see the monuments beautifully lit at night was breathtaking. Learning the history behind each monument was amazing. Our guide kept everyone engaged during the 3 hour tour. He was extremely knowledgeable. Definitely worth it!

The Twilight tour was awesome! Dre was an excellent tour guide. Would suggest going with him if at all possible, you will not be disappointed. Very knowledgeable and gave as much information as he could. DC is beautiful at night. Well worth it.

I have to tell you, Mathew is awesome. Even when his mic wasn't working he did his best to work around it. He was funny and sooooo knowledgeable. The tour was amazing. We didn't get to see the White House since it was closed off but we had such a great time. We got to see most of the monuments and landmarks we wanted to and then some. Thank you so much for making my parents 40th Anniversary trip the best part.

Brittany and Charles were excellent. I couldn't believe all the little facts she had remembered for each location. Great time with the family. The only attraction not well lit, and probably better during the day was the FDR Memorial. Everything else was awesome at twilight/night.

Loved all the fun facts, both the DC ones and those coincidental numbers! Had us laughing on a chilly night. Made all the difference.

We went on the night tour on Monday October 29, 2018 in bus 1503. We had a great time on this tour, despite us getting lost and holding up the bus for a few minutes when we got there. The tour was so well done and our tour guide was fantastic. She was funny and super knowledgeable. The information she knew was impressive. She had the quotes on the monuments memorized and dates to a T!. We really enjoyed the trip!!! The only downside was the children other people brought where were so badly behaved, but not the fault of the tour at all!!

A big thank you to Marie who rebooked my grandson and me on a twilight tour when we couldn't find our bus in a terrible rainstorm. She was very kind, and our tour leader,Dion, was full of energy and information, and made for a great evening.

Took my daughter on this tour, it is amazing during the daytime, but doing this at night really was special. The tour guides knowledge was an added bonus

I took this tour with my 18 year old Granddaughter who had just graduated from high school. Her graduation present was a trip to Washington DC. This was definitely one of the high lights! Great tour guide and transportation. Thank you Viator!

WOW! Our tour -- and in particular our tour guide Henry -- was spectacular. It was a very cold and damp night but Henry's expert details, funny anecdotes and engaging personality made for a very warm trip around the city. I can not rave enough about how fantastic this experience was. I was a chaperone for a group of students who came to DC for a Spring Break trip. I don't know that they were all that thrilled with the idea of the tour, particularly after walking around in the snow all day but from the moment we got on the bus till the moment the tour ended they were hooked. The best part of all is that they are still quoting things they learned from Henry. It is one of the most memorable aspects of our entire trip. Don't miss out on the opportunity to take this tour!!!
