There are walking tours and there are bus tours, but this unique eCruiser tour provides an entirely new perspective on the city of Washington, DC and its many famous landmark locations by the light of night. 

Meet the guide and the rest of the small-group at 12th and Independence Ave. SW, the Smithsonian Metro Stop at the base of the Department of Agriculture Building. Then climb aboard a nifty eCruiser vehicle — an open-air, eco-friendly electric cart that offers as much in style as it does with substance. 

See the Washington Monument lit up for the evening; the Thomas Jefferson and Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorials, illuminated by indirect lighting from the Tidal Basin; the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial, featuring cascading waterfalls and scenic sculptures; and the National World War I and World War II Memorials, with a spectacular fountain display.

There’s also the Lincoln Memorial, the Korean War Veterans Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the White House, Capitol Hill and the world-famous dome of the United States Capitol, plus the United States Supreme Court Building and the Library of Congress. Along the way, hear the historic stories and facts that make the city of Washington, DC one of the most popular tourist destinations in the United States.

DC with Kevin
, Sep 2020
OMG our tour was incredible!!! Our guide Kevin was the best!!!! He was knowledgeable and flexible. My mother in law can not walk long distances so he took that under consideration when he took us to see the sites in DC. I will definitely be booking again and requesting Kevin as out tour guide.
Beautiful views of important DC places

Julianna was so pleasant and, as an art major, brought a special flair to her descriptions. The monuments lit at night are stunning. We had plenty of time to visit at the FDR, MLK and Lincoln Memorials. The FDR and MLK stops were wonderful. There were no crowds. We liked the idea of an open cart tour in Covid times. I highly recommend this aa an evening activity.
All of it. Worth every penny!

Too long to find site
, Aug 2020
The tour guide was very good. She knew much information about the Memorials. Would of liked to be able to stop at The World War 2 Memorial. However the directions for finding the place to meet were so poor, it took away from the tour immensely. Took me too long to find the place. I never got any supper nothing to drink , as it took 2 long hours to find it. There was no sign posted and the directions were too vague from the operator.
Would recommend!

Great tour for our family, 6 of us rode comfortably and our tour guide Juliana was great! She was very knowledgeable and made it a fun experience for us. She was also careful & thoughtful about their covid safety procedures, which we really appreciated.
Great tour guide!

Really enjoyed this tour, we covered all the monuments and had time to get off and walk around. The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Would recommend this night tour to anyone!
Totally different at night than during the day
, Mar 2020
What a great tour seeing so many of the monuments lit up at night. We had a cold but beautiful, clear night so the lighting on the monuments made them so beautiful. A much different experience than seeing them during the day. The tour guide, Peter, was excellent and so knowledgeable. The cart is comfortable and a great quiet way to enjoy the tour. Definitely worth the time and price of admission.
Walking around Lincoln memorial at night.
