We did the DC at Dusk evening tour. Ali picked is up from our hotel (The Mayflower) and Brittney was our guide. We appreciated the as close to door-to-door service as possible at the major monuments and the great commentary/insights they provided. We have six and eight year old daughters and this was a great way to see the memorials. Brittney was great with them, keeping them engaged while still keeping the facts and other information also very appropriate for adults. When back in DC, we will repeat this tour.

Our tour guide was named D.J and he was the absolute best. He made jokes and made history interesting. He was also really good with interacting with teens and kept their attention.

I took the USA Guided Tour, Washington DC at Dusk. Our guide, Edgar, made the trip memorable with his knowledgeable narration and passion for his tours. He made sure that everyone had a great time and that we had the background information to understand and appreciate what we were seeing. I was able to take some beautiful photos of DC at night. Edgar was helpful in suggesting the best shots. At the end, he even waited until my ride arrived to make sure I was safe. I highly recommend this tour and Edgar as one of the best tour guides ever. Thanks, Edgar from Marsha! The bus was new and comfortable too.
