Was in Washington for three nights with my wife. Although we had seen most of the monuments in the day we booked the three hour mini bus tour in a group of about 20 people. Would say this is a must do activity for any visitor to the city. The group guide Dion was outstanding, well informed and a great communicator. Brilliant !!!!

Our trip on the trolley for the night tour was absolutely amazing. Mike our driver was so informative and kept u interested the whole time. He gave sufficient time to see the sights and filled u in on all sorts of information about everything. It had rained allday and we were worried it would ruin the tour but it didnt at all and mike made sure of that. It's one of the best experiences ever and I cant wait to come to dc again with friends and have them do the trolley night tour also!!! Great job to this company and great job to our gracious driver mike!!!!! Wish I could remember his trolley number. To whom it may concern with this company u have an amazing employee and are blessed to have him with your company. He is a great asset for these tours!!!!

Take this tour for a unique experience. You get closer to some of the monuments than the daytime tours from the same company. Great photo opportunities. Guides are knowledgeable and friendly.
