A fantastic tour we can’t wait to do again! - My apologies for being so late with this review! My wife and I went on this tour back in March while our daughter and her boyfriend were at a basketball game. We have been to D.C. many times in the past, but have never taken an official tour, especially at night. This tour was absolutely fantastic!! Wes, our guide, was very knowledgeable, personable, and hilarious! Seeing everything at night provides a very different perspective than the daylight, and Wes' added commentary added a lot to the enjoyment. At many places, you are afforded the opportunity to get out and do some brief exploration/photo ops. The van we rode in was very comfortable, too. Being able to see everything we saw without having to navigate D.C. traffic was a great combination! This tour was well worth the price paid, and we will definitely be doing it again, with our daughter next time!!

I would do it again! - Steve is a good tour guide. I'm a 78 year old Vietnam Vet, walking with a cane now. They gave us ample time to get out of the van and see the memorials. And I learned a bit too.

Best way to get to know DC. - We loved finding out where actual historical events happened. Examples: where Lincoln was shot and where the 1st church was built. Our guide, Kyven, was awesome and very knowledgeable about DC.
