Meet your guide and group at the designated meeting point for your early evening departure, then make your way to the grounds of the United States Capitol. Follow the Presidential Inauguration route down Pennsylvania Avenue to the White House, where you can take in the north side of the building and Lafayette Park, and continue to the Treasury Building, the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, and the Blair House.

Visit the World War II Memorial, then travel on foot to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, set at the edge of the Tidal Basin. This is the perfect spot to snap a photo of the Jefferson Memorial across the water. Tour the Korean War Veterans Memorial, and walk up the steps of the Lincoln Memorial for views back towards the US Capitol.

Make the final stop of the night at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial—your guide can assist in finding a name on the wall, as you hear the individual stories behind the war. This tour concludes at the Vietnam Memorial, close to public transport and National Mall sites.

NightTime Tour of DC Monuments
Marilla
, Sep 2020
Dean has a wealth of knowledge on the sites and history in DC and takes his job seriously per serving his customers. He pays attention to the special interests of the group as well and goes the extra yard to get the interesting information before you on a cool video screen in the van. Gayle was energetic and engaging in sharing information and making it entertaining for the small children in the group.

Great experience! Seeing the monuments and highlights at night was a completely different and amazing experience! There were no crowds to fight through and things were so peaceful. Dean was extremely knowledgeable about the area. He provided plenty of historical facts and tidbits of knowledge to really enhance the trip. Loved that this was a small group tour-there were only 5 of us which allowed for a better experience all around. Highly recommend!

Dean was a fantastic guide and very accommodating. We have seen the sites in DC during the day but with everything lit it was a different perspective. Plus we saw all in 3 hours and on our own would have been a full day. I highly recommend!!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! We had a great time with our tour guide, Steve, and driver, Dean. We were able to see all of the important sites DC has to offer without having to walk miles to do it! Steve was very knowledgeable of each memorial we visited and he was able to identify all of the buildings we passed when driving to our next location. Unbelievable the knowledge this man has. Would definitely go again and highly recommend "See DC Today" as your first choice!
