We meet at Starbucks - 11th & H Street NW in front of the Grand Hyatt - 1000 H Street NW.

This activity will end right where it started.
Meet your guide and group at the designated meeting point for your early evening departure, then make your way to the grounds of the United States Capitol. Follow the Presidential Inauguration route down Pennsylvania Avenue to the White House, where you can take in the north side of the building and Lafayette Park, and continue to the Treasury Building, the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, and the Blair House.

Visit the World War II Memorial, then travel on foot to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, set at the edge of the Tidal Basin. This is the perfect spot to snap a photo of the Jefferson Memorial across the water. Tour the Korean War Veterans Memorial, and walk up the steps of the Lincoln Memorial for views back towards the US Capitol.

Make the final stop of the night at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial—your guide can assist in finding a name on the wall, as you hear the individual stories behind the war. This tour concludes at the Vietnam Memorial, close to public transport and National Mall sites.

Outstanding tour. It was super hot outside and having the air conditioners bud was a huge help…and cold water was given out liberally. It then rained and they gave out large umbrellas to everyone some we could stay dry and continue the tour. Very knowledgeable guides, would absolutely recommend.

Corey our guide was very nice and had great information- I’ve lived in DC for 10 years in the 90’s and still learned lots of new things! It was a good amount of time to see each place. My son really enjoyed. Good mix of dusk and dark 😊👍🏻

Great tour! Loved Judy as our tour guide. She was very informative and fun to be around. Corey was a great driver, he got us to each stop safely. The restroom breaks were nice and Judy and Corey provided water which was great due to how hot it was. Very good tour, loved visiting the monuments up close and being drove to each instead of walking. Highly recommend the 7pm-10pm tour time due to weather. Fun tour!

We know what you mean- in the evening from 7- 10 pm the DC monuments glow but it's is a whole lot cooler. We'll tell the team how much you enjoyed them.

Cassie was a knowledgeable, friendly tour guide who immediately put us at ease! This tour enabled us to see many important memorials and historical landmarks that our schedule would not have otherwise permitted. The time of day, sunset, made the tour that much more impressive. Highly recommend!

Dustin was extremely knowledgeable. He shared a load of interesting information while we were onboard, riding from site to site, and then when we stopped the doors flew open and off all we went to explore. We noticed other tour guides holding their anxious audiences captive at each site instead of letting them use their time wisely at each monument. Much appreciate our guide using the driving time to talk and having so much worthwhile things to say. We didn't make it to the Washington monument, and most of our 'night tour' was done in the light of day. I wish the 'night tours' would begin at 8:30 in the summer so that the spectacular lighting could be appreciated but I still give 5 stars.

We'll let Dustin know how much you appreciated his tour... we also wish it got dark a bit earlier but these last weeks of June we just can't make the sun stop! Many thanks for taking the time to leave us a 5 star review-

Ask for Corey- he was very knowledgeable, loves his city, and made the tour very educational. Do this tour on your first night so you are aware of places you might otherwise miss!

We're so happy you toured with us first and then enjoyed the city once you had an overview- that's perfect timing. Thanks so much for the 5 Star review- Safe travels-

Corey, our driver, and Steve, our guide, we’re both superb. With both being DC natives, not only did their familiarity serve us well but also their pride and love for their city was evident. I was especially appreciative of being picked up and dropped off at my hotel which exceeded my expectations for service and safety. Steve shared that he once considered becoming a history teacher. As a career teacher myself, I believe Steve is now certainly teaching, and he has reached master status.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
We agree- Steve teaches his lived experiences in DC on every tour! And many thanks to you for your own years devoted to teaching! We will let Corey and Steve know.
