"Beautiful DC at night with Sooner Steve!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

We added this tour to the last night of our stay in Washington, and we are so glad we did. I had read some reviews, and knew it would be a great tour. What a treat to find out that Sooner Steve was our driver! He is top-notch! His narrative was informative and entertaining. Of course, the monuments at night are stunning. The tour stops provide a great opportunity for photos, or to simply admire the majesty of the beautiful monuments. I would highly recommend this tour.

Really enjoyed the tour with Just Joe. Lincoln Monument and MLK were my favorites but liked it all. Relaxing way to see all the famous buildings at night- they look so different than during the day.

"Excellent tour of DC at night!"

Sooner Steve was knowledgable and had a great personality. I've taken this tour before and the couple we brought with us had never been to DC. I will come back when my 5 and 6 year old boys are a little older to take them on this tour. Well worth it!

"A good way to see all the monuments in one night"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed September 27, 2020
This tour was recommended to us by the concierge at our hotel and yes it was a very good way to see the major monuments of Washington DC by night. However at a lot of the locations, we were left to our own devices and at the Iowa Jima Memorial, we were just given a direction on where we had to go to get back to the bus. The departure point was somewhat further along than where we were dropped off. While locals or even those from other destinations in America might have understood where to go, we had great difficulty in finding the bus in the dark. I think the tour guide should stay with the bulk of the group rather than just sit in the bus and wait for everyone to come back.

Sooner Steve was a good host, very knowledgeable and friendly. Schedule in advance if you have a large group, due to covid limitations on space on the bus.
