Great tour But
Tim_B

We went on a Saturday night in June. Very hot night so air conditioned bus was a good choice over open air busses . Charles was our driver . He was very knowledgeable about DC. However, he tried to impart so much knowledge that he drove too slow and talked too much. What was advertised as a 3 hour tour was closer to 4. That left little time to get out and see monuments and attractions. Barely enough to get a quick picture. Sometimes only 15-20 minutes to go and come back. At Lincoln Memorial he stopped the bus at the location an talked for an additional 10 minutes before we were let off bus. We had to see like 3 monuments in 25 minutes or so. The Lincoln,WWll and the Korea . We never made it WWll. I would rather more time actually visiting and less time driving while listening. We really did the enjoy the tour but with improvements it would be so much better. Nice touch was that he had cold waters in cooler underneath that you could have when stopped. That was much appreciated on a hot night . I would do this tour again but would hope for more time at certain places.

The tour was too pricey
Moumita_P

I was excited for this tour but the overall experience was really bad. Good: 1. Tour guide and driver were friendly, professional and humble 2. They answered all questions and also tried to keep children entertained. Bad: 1. There was a heavy accent of the tour guide which was a bit difficult to understand 2. It seemed too pricey for what the tour is about. Definitely not worth $58.

Vietnam, Nuses and Marine Memorials. Also excellent driver Greg and guide Tyrone!!! We were lucky with good weather. Tyrone was very effective as a guide; he could be light hearted and funny and of course very serious and informative as the site needed.

So so

Zuma was a sweet guy, but a poor guide. Many of his narratives during the tour did not match up where the bus was. He was on auto-pilot. I get it, as he does this probably a dozen times a week. Bottom line: more schtick than substance. P.S. be ready for a twilight versus dark sky tour. They should back it up an hour in summer..

Tyrone and Lee were out tour guides for the night and did an amazing job. The tour is a great way to see all the top spots in the city. Tyrone had a lot of knowledge he shared as we stopped or passed by buildings and statues. Would recommend this tour to anyone visiting DC.

Our tour guide was amazing. She was a true storyteller and was so knowledgeable about DC and American history. My only complaint is that the tour had too many people. It would have been better to do it with about half the people, so you can ask questions.

Not the best experience
minoti_r
, Jun 2022
We had done a tour during daytime in a smaller bus with May be 25 tourists and were looking forward to a night time visit if the monuments. There were too many passengers in the bus, the air condition noise made it hard to hear our guide and getting in and out of the bus took time. Next time , I will go back to a smaller bus.

Chris was a great driver and always checked to make sure everyone had returned to the bus after stops. Sally’s narration was interesting and knowledgeable and really brought to life interesting details about the city and landmarks.

An unfortunate experience
L_K
, Jun 2022
The actual monuments at night are breathtaking. Sitting on a bus for over four hours listening to a tour guide mispronouncing many times was too much. His knowledge and stories were interesting but we sat in one spot for 30 minutes (multiple times). I/we would have loved more time exploring the monuments.
