Unfortunately tour was cancelled once I arrived in Washington DC. No alternative was suggested. Disappointed as travelling as lone female and wanted night tour with hotel pick up. Ended up on the big bus night tour which was full. Perhaps is this tour was a little cheaper more people would sign up.
Night time in Washington

Great driver and beautiful night tour. We had an issue with scheduling and the owner was so accommodating to us and letting us come a different time!
Great Tour

Our tour was very informative. It would have been nice if we could have seen more of Embassy Row. It was dark so it was more street lights than the homes. The night tour of the monuments was beautiful. We happened to be in DC while the Nationals were playing the World Series so there were a lot of Nationals displays like at the National Cathedral. The tour guide was very good and very respectful and very knowledgeable. Our pickup and drop off were perfect. We would recommend to the tour company to split the tour to some hours of daytime touring along with some night touring.
Excellent night tour

This was a wonderful way to see the monuments at night and it feels more personalized since it's a small tour bus. It was important to me to be picked up at my hotel, and I was actually picked up about 10 minutes early, so be aware that the time your given is an estimate. Johannes was a great, informative guide and was very friendly. The only downside is that his accent makes him slightly hard to understand. Lots of stops and more than enough time to get out and take photos. He provides bottled water, but it isn't cold. Overall, I highly recommend it.
Best views are after dark!

There's something about seeing these awesome places in the dark. And there are a lot of says to do it. Our tour guide was great, told us everything we needed to know while driving, then let us go on our own to explore. The amount of time he gave us was plenty for each stop. The small size of our group\bus was much better than the bigger buses that had drivers trying to guide large groups around in the dark. Highly recommend this tour.

Driver was great, knew more history than any school teacher, seen all the sites with plenty of time to walk each one out
Great first look at Washington DC

Embassies, monuments, memorials and major sites are stunning at night. Knowledgeable driver/guide. Comfortable van. Small group of twelve. Perfect!
An amazing way to view the city and the monuments

Our trip with Johannes was wonderful. We were the first group to be picked up at our hotel and it took us about an hour to grab the other participants around the city. We spent the first portion of the evening driving around to view Embassy Row while it was still light out and we actually caught VP Pence's motorcade taking him home for the evening. We also were able to stop by Georgetown Cupcakes after driving through Georgetown which was a lovely little sugar pick me up (note: this is not included in the tour, it was just a nice extra stop.) Seeing these massive stone/metal/etc structures with beautiful back lighting makes them every more profound in a way and I'm so happy we did it. My favorite was the Lincoln Memorial, and it was crazy to see how many people were still out at 10 pm wandering around the structure. Johannes was informative, kind and with a great sense of humor as a guide. I highly recommend this tour.
It was OK

I was expecting MORE from what friends said of their experience. I wish the tour guide walked us to the sights & gave us history/facts etc. Suggest you have a driver & a guide. The White House, because of construction, was a bust. You had to run (time limit) a far way to see “a wall”. You can imagine the jokes.

This was an excellent night tour. Our tour guide Leroy was fantastic with his knowledge and sense of humor and was one of the highlights of our trip. He took us past some attractions that were not even part of our tour. If you ever book this tour, I would highly recommend requesting Leroy as a guide
