Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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.

Highlight of our DC trip!

There are so many things my friends and I loved about this tour! The van was extremely comfortable. My husband and I sat in the very back and it was easy to get in out of. I was worried I wouldn't be able to hear the guide, but to my delight he used a microphone so I heard everything he said loud and clear. He also had a screen that was easy for all of us to see where he showed all kinds of interesting pictures. Most of all he was so knowledgeable! I learned so much! He was easy to understand and very personable. We were traveling with 3 other couples and everyone agreed it was our favorite part of our DC trip!

The monuments at night are beautiful and take on a new feeling of awe and respect. This tour is a great way to see many of the most famous DC landmarks in a short amount of time and learn about the history of the city and the memorials. Our tour guide Liz was great and created special “challenges” for my 9-yr-old at some of the stops! Highly recommend.

I asked for them to reschedule my tour as my fight was delayed they didn’t get back to me and charged me for the tour so I had to book for a different tour that is cheaper and more accommodating. Can’t even refund my money

Night Tour was the highlight of our trip to DC

Excellent tour, the van was a bit crowded considering covid but the driver and tour guide did a fantastic job both giving us a great tour but also doing their part in mask-wearing. We took our 90-year-old mom and they were very accomodating with her. We did a private daytime tour and this Night Tour was definitely the highlight of our trip to DC. I wish I had taken this tour first but we scheduled it for my actual birthday. If you only do one tour, do this one, it will not disappoint.

Rob was a great tour guide! I was with my 10-year-old son, and the tour was long enough to hit the major sites but not linger too long given a 10-year-old's attention span. Doing it in the evening kept it cool, and the lighting did add a little bit of a dramatic effect, especially the Lincoln Memorial. My son (and I) particularly liked the little-known facts, such as what "special items" were behind the Jefferson statue and the "mistake" at the Lincoln Memorial.
