    Several stops/great guide/lots of interesting info. It turned out to be a rainy night, but the driver and onboard guide made the very best of the situation.

    Our tour guide and driver were excellent. I believe our driver was Toi and our tour guide was Bridget. (Or something close. sorry.) Both of them were helpful, funny and friendly. Bridget was very knowledgeable. We loved hearing about the history behind each monument we visited. Our tour team was very patient with us. Even when a young woman failed to return on time they did not lose their cool but, they did make sure she had assistance the next time so that she would not get lost. Whenever we wanted pictures Bridget was right there to help out. Thanks again for a great tour.

    The tour was all we could have hoped for and more.
    The glass top bus is ABSOLITELY worth it because on a beautiful night like we had it is a convertible and the bus becomes open air.
    The tour hit every major monument/memorial we wanted to see and provided adequate time at them all.
    Our driver, Smokey, was excellent on all counts. A safe driver, a knowledgeable guide, a very nice man, and a great singer as well.
    This was a fantastic experience all around and I would recommend it for anyone - whether it be your first time in DC or if you have only visited the sites in the daytime this is a must.

    Sally our tour guide and Chris our driver were fabulous. Sally was a pleasure. I definitely learned a lot about nation’s Capitol and the memorials. I also got some remarkable photos - the light was extraordinary.

    Highly recommend this tour. The private aspect is great for having some extra time at the popular memorials. Mark was our guide and our family enjoyed his tour. He was very knowledgeable, professional and friendly! Our family had an excellent experience.

    Mr. History was a great guide. He gave great recommendations on what to do while in DC. I only had 1/2 a day and this trip was worth it! I wrote down so much for a future trip to with my family.

    This was such a wonderful experience. Larry was a knowledgeable and thoughtful tour guide. I have to say this was probably the best tour we’ve ever been on and in addition to that Brian was a great navigator around the city. I would highly recommend this tour and specifically the tour guide Larry as he made his experience memorable and enjoyable. Thank you!!

    This was a great way to see the National Mall sites. The monuments take on a new light at night right? Sorry…

    …anyway, it was a wonderful night and our guide (I didn’t get her name) was super knowledgeable about the history of the city and the monuments.

    Great driver but his microphone and speaker system didn’t work well so it was hard to hear him. Also one of the front seats was broken forcing elderly passengers to sit further back

    This tour was well organized and the check-in process was smooth.
    Our tour guide, Deon was so entertaining and full of historical information. He made the trip fun and we learned so much.
    Our driver Carl was professional and friendly, he offered free water and panchos.
    This tour covered all the key monuments and memorials around the National mall. We really enjoyed this tour, this was our 1st trip to DC and we loved it!

    Joel was so informative. Learned so much, stopped at all the right spots and was well organized. We loved that we could sit back and just enjoy and all the hard work was done for us.

    Perhaps the greatest museum in Washington DC today. Unbelievable experience - a must-see for every American to learn about and confront our past. Very proud the the truth can be told and we can learn from it. Our guide was exceptionally knowledgable, I learned things about Lincoln I had never heard before, and the very conflicted truth about Jefferson, who shackled as slaves his own six children he fathered with slave Sally Hemming. Very eye-opening. Lots to think about. Fabulous excursion!
