Great Night Tour
, Jan 2020
We had a great tour with Tamara and Charles! It was a chilly night and had a beautiful bus with only 7 people on our tour. Tamara took care of my dead phone battery as well as provided a fun and informative tour! The pick up spot was difficult to find in the dark. Look for the bike swap area and wait there.
Great time!

Awesome tour guide, he knew so much history about all the monuments. The only reason I did not give it a five star review was because it was hard to hear him I wish he had some sort of microphone or voice projection type of device.
Excellent driver. Stoned guide?
, Dec 2019
Our driver Mr. Charles Smith, was fantastic, going the extra mile to share the Iwo Jima memorial with guests who had missed that part of Arlington earlier in the day. At night, that was amazing to behold! Our guide on the other hand, did not react well to any changes. He grew increasingly irritable as the evening progressed, both with the driver and guests. He repeated himself multiple times, giving the same spiel each time we passed a monument. His knowledge appeared limited, rather than any true interest in the area. He was rather glib and nonchalant. The guide's commentary got to a point where multiple guests in the group commented that he may have been stoned. I would recommend a twilight tour, but while December twilight made the Korean Conflict Memorial amazing, the FDR memorial was hard to see and take in.
Monuments at Night with Dion
, Dec 2019
Great experience. Dion brought history alive. I would have like to drive by Truman and Eisenhower also but provided great overview.
Tour was great... Service was bad.
, Nov 2019
The actual tour was great. We saw a lot of venues in a short time. The tour guide was great. Directions to the pickup location and parking proved very challenging. The fact that they chose an open top bus for a cold night made the tour less than desirable. The bus was old and dirty. I don’t understand how this company is so well rated.
Washington DC Twilight Tour
, Nov 2019
It was amazing to see the sights at night. Many things were explained well and with enthusiasm. Disappointed that the tour guide did not take us over to Vietnam Memorial.we went over by ourselves however had some anxiety that we would not catch up with the rest of the group. The young girl was truly enthusiastic but her use of incorrect English was not flattering.
Fun tour in D.C.
, Nov 2019
We had a great time on this tour. Our tour guide was funny, knowledgeable and friendly. We loved how we got to go off the bus to visit some monuments. We learned a lot from his unique perspective. Would definitely recommend.
