3 adults and 3 kids took this tour and we all loved it. The open air car was fun and the small tour felt more personal. We all learned a lot from our tour guide. The kids rated it their favorite activity

This was a great tour. It was so fun zipping around the city at night. I particularly enjoyed stopping at the FDR and MLK memorials which we wouldn’t have seen on our own since they’re a bit off the mall. They are both spectacular and very worth visiting! Our guide pointed out tons of little insider info tidbits and it was great seeing everything lit up at night. My teens were initially grumpy and reluctant but midway through told me they only want to do night tours from now on!

Our tour guide Rachel was very pleasant and informative. We had a beautiful night and after a long day of being on your feet, this was a great way to see the Mounuments in the Moolight. Would recommend, this tour is small and you don’t have to wait on bus size crowds.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2018

Our tour guide, Nima, was great. It was only his second tour by himself and he was knowledgeable, friendly, flexible, and customer service oriented. I am from DC but took people new to DC on trip. It was a nice express tour. It gave my party a tour where they could get their bearings of the city. I like the open cart so you can get a breeze, hop on and off easily, and have a small group. I say it is a good overview but would recommend another/longer tour if you would like to dig in at the sites. There is not enough time to stop for lengthy periods at sites. You would probably need one of the 3.5/4 hour tours. I liked getting an overview and then deciding what my party wanted to see more of the next day.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2018

Washington’s monuments are amazing. Add moonlight and smaller crowds and it makes for a magical night. The small group, open air, and fabulous tour guide add up to a perfect experience. We went on the tour with a group of 6 and it was really memorable. I won’t miss the chance to recommend it to anyone visiting DC.

Wonderful tour! Our guide, Chris Anderson, was very entertaining and knowlegable about all the site and history surrounding them. Chris is a DC local and prided himself on that even providing a list of recommended places to eat. It was a cold night and the carts had plastic sides zipped during the tour. My only suggestion would be on cold nights to make slightly longer stops to get more photo ops, since the plastic windows hindered that a little. Chris dropped me off at one of his recommended restaurants and suggested the chili. It was on point and possibly best chili I've had
