Amazing Tour - This is by far favorite memory of the trip to DC. Chris V. was a wonderful guide with a wealth of knowledge for all ages. He was so great with my daughter who is so curious about history. Even during a thunderstorm didn’t ruin our tour. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

Beautiful and cooler way to see the monuments! - Paul was our guide in the little roadster. There were 7 passengers plus Paul, and he used a little microphone amplifier so we could all hear him. The tour started at dusk and it was cooling off so it was a great time to be out seeing the monuments. There was just enough time for each of the stops (Jefferson, Lincoln, MLK, and White House). Definitely the best way to get all of the monuments in efficiently! Thank you Paul!

Loved it! Would recommend! - We had the best time! Deejay was our guide and he was both hilarious and informative. I keep bothering my friends with tidbits I learned from him. He kindly offered to take pics of us as often as we wanted. This was totally worth it!

Do it! - Our guide was Cortland. He was amazing and really fun. He interacted with the whole group and gave us plenty of fun facts. Things that you will never know unless someone shares them with you, and that's exactly what he did. Seeing the monuments at night is quite an amazing experience.

Great night time experience! - What a great tour! We were fortunate enough to be Lorenzo’s first tour group, and he did a fantastic job. From sharing lots of great historical information along the tour to dropping us off right next to the key sites - his service was top notch! It was really interesting to see the landmarks lit up at night and it gave a much different perspective from our daytime tour. Lots of great photo opportunities! The smaller and quieter vehicles were very nice and avoided all the exhaust smells of gas powered carts. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone.
