Dave was the perfect tour guide - very engaging, knowledgeable, and appeared to enjoy his job. He had great information and did a wonderful job of explaining what we were seeing and the history behind the monuments. Alberto was a fantastic driver - couldn't have asked for better!!
UnFortunately there were so many buses at the monument / Memorial sites we had to skip a few as we were unable to get close, other than that the tour was great.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful.
Dave was an excellent tour guide
Personalized intervention, understanding of personal needs such as walking slow, elevator use, etc.
We covered a lot of sights. Dave did a good job giving the background on the events that were commemorated and the insights on the memorial construction. He gave very interesting information about the city. The photo opportunities were awesome. Make sure that you let people know that it is not just a drive by by involves a level of walking and climbing stairs.
Very comprehensive tour, the guide was informative and helpful. Very fast paced and not a lot of time at each monument.
The guide and the driver were both great! Made us feel comfortable and safe. Guide was fun and very knowledgeable. There was a traffic issue picking us up at the hotel so the booking staff quickly made arrangements to have us uber’d over to the tour start point. We could not have asked for better service or a more enjoyable tour experience. Highly recommend.
Enjoyed the tour and our tour guide. He was very personable, kept the tour on schedule and certainly seemed to possess a good bit of knowledge about the DC area, history, and current events.
Our tour guide Larry was very informative and personable.

Loved the monuments by light. Less crowded
My group absolutely loved our tour of the city. The weather was prefect and the cherry blossoms were in full bloom and looked absolutely beautiful. Our tour guide, Larry was awesome. He kept the tour fun and entertaining and informative; we learned things about DC and the monuments we had not known. He also kept our attention with comic jokes and informative facts. Our driver Abraham was wonderful too, he made city driving look easy and even dropped us off at our hotel! It was truly a wonderful experience, we will definitely do more tours with this company and request Abraham and Larry if possible. I would also recommend the the DC Lights Tour to anyone visiting the city. thank you, again!
This was the first trip to D.C. for us. Willis and Abe. were very good with the tour. I just got to tired to walk all of it at the last.
It was even greater than I expected!
Checked off all the stops you want to see and very informative!
Tour guide informative. Saw sights desired Very pleased. Did not feel rushed
The tour of DC with “Mr. Map” exceeded our expectations!
Henry was by far the best tour guide I've experienced anywhere. DC lights was great from start to finish. We saw all the important sights and learned some very interesting details. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone but I'm not sure how much of the credit belongs to Henry. Did I mention that Henry a fantastic guide?
The tour and tour guide were excellent, I was sent a text telling us of a change of meeting location prior to the tour. The tour guide Joey was upbeat and really knew her stuff! We saw lots of monuments and it was well paced with the option to stay on the bus if you wanted or needed to. I

Dillon did a great job. He was knowledgable, personable and kept the group on schedule.
I was extremely satisfied with my D.C. "The Lights" Tour on Friday, December 28, 2018. Our tour guide Dylan was exceptional, knowledgeable, humorous and attentive to the needs of the entire group. The tour was timely in meeting our departure and return times. The large couch vehicle was clean, comfortable to ride in and was easy to get into and out of on all the numerous stops made during my evening tour. Dylan gave the entire group ample time at each stop to compose photographs and selfies. The tour couch was stocked with bottled water and we where giving plenty of time during the evening for restroom breaks. The weather that night was overcast and extremely foggy which caused the interior windows to get foggy too, I highly suggest stocking the couch with paper towels to help remove the condensation. I rated my overall experience 4 **** Stars, but our tour guide Dylan because of his personality, conversational skills and being just a humble tour guide with an extra star! So, in conclusion, I will return to D.C. in the coming year, and will book another tour with Dylan. Thank You, Stuart Faber.
Edgar was amazing!!! So beyond happy that I decided to take this tour, I learned so much and it truly changed how much I appreciate our great country!
We really liked our tour guide..couldn't tell you his name, but he was an old hippie type that was very friendly and knowledgeable, which made the bus ride even better. The only part of the bus ride that disappointed my kids (15 year old twins) is that they wanted to really see the White House but the closest we got was way across the street and were only able to see it thru trees. Pretty disappointing. However, the rest of the tour was a lot of fun and we really appreciated getting dropped off at the hotel instead of the designated meeting spot!!!
We went on Thursday, November 29, 2018. What made this experience great was our tour guide, Bella. She was very personable, and extremely knowledgeable about the sights. Our driver, was fabulous as well, very safe driver!
This was a great tour. Larry our tour guide was so much fun. He paid attention to the kids as much as the adults and that made them feel special. Everyone had a great time from 5-50. In fact they said the tour was their favorite part of our DC trip!!
Larry and Alberto were great!
Larry was an excellent tour guide. He made sure that we had adequate time to walk around the monuments, and his information was thorough and fascinating. Daryl did a great job driving from place to place. He also provided bottled water for us which was well needed on a hot, humid evening.
The tour covered the most significant areas and monuments.The bus was comfortable and warm on a cold night.Our guide and narrator was excellent.He added history and color to the trip.We thoroughly enjoyed it.
Very good overall, my only suggestion would be, warm beverages and/or alcoholic beverages were available
Our plane arrived late. I was so excited to get a call asking if we were going to make it. They waited and check on us. I don't know any other tour company that would do that. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and patient answer all of our questions it was wonderful. Thank you!
Larry was a great tour guide. Great evening.
IT WAS A GREAT WAY TO VIEW THE MONUMENTS. tHE ONLY ONE I WAS DISAPPOINTED IN WAS THE VIETNAM WAR MEMORIAL; IT WAS JUST TOO DARK TOO BE ABLE TO SEE IT ADEQUATELY
The tour guide walked entirely too fast that they didn’t notice no one was behind them. The guide would give a time to be back, but would leave 2-3 minutes ahead of time.
Tour guide was great, nice to be able to get off the bus to take pictures, time spent each site - good, clean van, pick up/dropoff at hotel (Hyatt Place) convenient and appreciated
Larry was very knowledgeable and fun.
Willis our Guide was great.. Was very informative..
