It was a nice time with my family
Our guide was knowledgeable, thoughtful and entertaining.
The monuments are beautiful at night.
Easy pick up and drop off - well timed and relaxed tour. We all had great fun!
Very dangerous walking along the water in the dark on wet pavement. Almost slipped three times. Great tour otherwise.
Everything was enjoyable, but would have nice to start at the cemeteries to save driving time. We could have then stayed longer at some of the monuments.
Our guide did a great job talking about each of the different places and added some humor.
Because our tour had so many people, that was not accounted for in the time at each monument so it became very rushed. We finally got to the most important 3 monuments to me at the end and the tour guide explained that we would need to "rush" through them. Since I had already seen the Lincoln Memorial and not the Vietnam memorial, I ask the tour guide if we could go off on our own to that specific monument. He agreed and gave us a meeting location. Another couple along with my husband and I quickly walked to the Vietnam memorial and I was able to find my cousins name. We then proceeded quickly to the meeting location where NO ONE showed up. We waited about 20 min (now 11pm) and called the tour guide where we were informed that we were left.......sorry. I was thankful for Uber. Other than that we enjoyed the tour.
I talked with a representative who sd the tour goes on rain of shine and that your website of stops on the tour was current. A couple of hours before the meeting time, I received a call from your representative asking if I still planned on attending or did I want to reschedule...it was our last night in DC. About an hour before the tour, I again received a call indicating that you were cancelling your tour and booked me on USA Guided. I appreciated your rebooking me although the meeting place changed from next to the White House to the Navy Memorial. As we were to meet next to the White House we made dinner reservations there as well. Ahaving to then go back to the Navy memorial was inconvenient as we were staying at the Kimpton Monaco. The USA Guided tour did not go to the Marine Memorial as your website indicated. Additionally, you advertise yours is the highest rated/most popular and was the most expensive. In my opinion USA Guided was OK but not what I would have expected from the “highest rated/most popular at the highest price.
I learned some interesting things about the national monuments.
The tour guide was about 40 minutes late and I felt the tour was rushed due to this.
Got to hit all the main highlight with a very knowledgeable tour guide!
The sites and the experience were excellent. The guide was informative and personable, but could have been a bit more "professional" in his tone and approach.
There should have been at least two more stops on the tour; or at least some snacks, Or fewer trips with longer stops in between; we didn’t get to the White House gift shop.But tour guide was good though.
The guide Dillon was excellent, he was great with his knowledge base as well as patient with all of the customers. Great job in leading the group through the tour. I have been on three night tours this was the best of them all. The only way to make it better would have been a stop at Jefferson Memorial. Thank you
The tour was quite long and went past the stated time duration making for a very long day. Overall we did enjoy seeing the sights at DC at night.
John was very personable. Made sure he connected with all on the tour. Very interactive with everyone. Very knowledgeable about the sites visited Also Alburto our driver very good driver
Larry’s DC Lights tour was very informative and also entertaining.
Enjoyed the commentary and guide.
It was a great tour. Our guide, Larry, was very knowledgeable and funny. I would highly recommend this tour.
I truly enjoyed this night tour. This was not my first time to DC, but I still wanted to see lots of sites and this bus tour was perfect. The guide was wonderful, and the sites visited were great. Thank you for the great experience.
An excellent tour made more memorable by a well prepared guide
The tour was great and our guide was even better. He had so many fun facts to share about either the Washington DC area and or the monuments. We very much enjoyed the event. We also liked the fact that he got off at each monument with us and answered questions that we may have had. Would highly recommend this specific evening tour.
John was very informative about the various memorials. He was also a lot of fun with his jokes and sense of humor. He was very engaging and easy to talk with.
Willis was very knowledgeable and shared many facts and stories we probably would have missed had we not been on the tour. Willis was especially respectful at the war memorials giving us time and space to take in the meaning and feelings associated with each monument.
Willis & Mustaffa were both very cordial & a pleasure to be with. Willis had many interesting stories and was very knowledgeable when asked a question. I would highly recommend this night tour to my friends and family.
Dale was so great!! i'm not native English speaker but he took care of me so nicely.
Strange pick up place. Guide had a good personality but more interesting facts about the sights would have made him better. Less about him. Tour seemed to drag a little. No set plan for ending the tour. Our pick up spot (White House gift shop) is not a good return location at 10:30pm.
It was a beautiful night! The monuments were spectacular at night. It was a large group. We had to make a real effort to hear the guide talking. The guide did a pretty good job.
Great tour guide. John
