Great night! - It was a perfect night for a tour. Our guide, Reggie, went above and beyond! He shared so much information as we drove around. I liked that he shared a ton with us about buildings in between the main monuments, as we drove from place to place. I was amazed by how much he knew! Having the provided blankets was a nice touch too.

Great tour of DC, and the photo ops are wonderful. - Great company. Fun tour. Chris was awesome. We were really pleased with how quickly we were able to get checked in and going. Very easy meeting instructions. The tour itself was lovely, and you really get a lot of information. The only con was the weather (which was NOT the fault of the tour). So if you are going to take this tour, check the weather first. If it is chilly and windy DRESS FOR IT.

Knowledgeable and friendly guide - Our tour guide, Alex, was amazing! He was well versed in the history of the district, including lesser known facts and stories. He clearly enjoys his job, and loved answering questions, which made our tour even more enjoyable. The monuments are so beautiful at night!

Good - Overall good experience. Last week in March was a little too cold for a night tour in an open vehicle. Tour guide was very knowledgeable. Allowed ample time to take pictures
