The guide, Jamal, was incredible. He made the tour so interesting. I learned facts about the monuments that I hadn’t know despite having visited DC countless times.

This was an excellent way to get a taste for many of the memorials and monuments in DC. It’s simply impossible to dive into all of them enough, but my husband and I didn’t feel the need to return because we had such great views and just enough time to get a feel for each one!

Terry was an excellent tour guide, we had the plenty of time to take in the monuments that we hopped off on. A bit more walking than expected but not anything beyond what was mentioned when booking.

Amazing Tour Smokey Rocked It!
Valerie_W
, Jun 2022
This was our first time viewing the monuments at night. Absolutely GLORIOUS! We traveled in an open air, small Mercedes bus. Our tour guide, Smokey, was the BEST! He sang during our tour and has an amazing voice. Super knowledgeable. We had 2 teenagers with us, and they were fully engaged the entire time. Would definitely do this tour again. 10/10!!

An Evening Ride in the City

It was very hard to hear over the noise of the very squeaky shocks at the back of the bus. Alicia, our guide was WONDERFUL and so full of knowledge. Our bus driver Alex did a great job navigating around. Out of 10 stars they’d each get 10!!! Oddly enough, the picture depicted on the site for the tickets was actually by the Korean War Memorial, which we had walked by earlier in the day as they were recognizing Ambassador Cho Tae Yong and the tour never brings you there.

Beware….van with tinted windows
Mark_L
, Jun 2022
Beware that you could be placed in the covered section of the vehicle where the windows are tinted and you can’t see anything. We booked an open top vehicle but unfortunately that didn’t happen and we even arrived 20 minutes early as asked. I was hoping the driver would ask folks to rotate and let us sit in the open area at least one time during our trip but that didn’t happen either. The driver was very knowledgeable and gave great information about the sites we visited but you don’t get much time at each site. Next time I come I’m going to book with a different company, 395.00 was a lot money to pay for a tour that doesn’t disclose that you might be seated inside the van with tinted windows and not the open roof section that you paid for. I feel like I need to be reimbursed something for false advertising.

Our tour guide Alisha was great! She was extremely knowledgeable about DC and shared it in a fun way. Even when a large portion of the group didn’t listen to directions and got lost at the last stop, she and Tinesha the tour operator tracked them down and we were on our way.
