Great experience for our family. Definitely recommend.
Amy_K

We did this tour our first night in DC and we were so glad we did. Seeing the monuments lit up with smaller crowds was worth every penny, especially in the summer when it was cooler at night too. Plus we got to see Lightning Bugs which we don't have at home and that added to the experience. The guide Charles gave us lots of interesting info and helped us to know what things we might want to revisit the next day. I would absolutely recommend this tour.

We had a great experience overall. One recommendation would be to have more time to spend at the Lincoln, Vietnam, and Korean Memorials. 20 minutes felt rushed and was not enough time to truly experience these Memorials.

Owner needs DEI Training
Rhonda_W
, Jul 2022
My experience began with the Owner, Zuma informing me that I needed to go to the back of a long line. So ok, I did and I got checked in via a ticket scan. I thought I was ready to board the tour bus, but then came the insult. When me and my guest got ready to board the bus, Zuma asked if we had paid. Wow! He did not ask anyone before me or after me that question. Why me? Did I look different from other patrons? Yes, I am a Black female and the others had lighter skin tones. When Zuma was asked why he did this to us he simply denied that he did. Get some DEI training!
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
We are so sorry about the misunderstanding and that you have to be on a long line because it's the high season. I don't remember seeing you before I saw you on the line when i tried to get you on board. And you told me 'why are you asking me and not asking other people. And when you told me you had the ticket already scanned, I said 'thank you, welcome aboard'. We are so sorry that you feel that way. This is America, we are all the same, no difference between black and white or any other colors.. By the way, I'm black.My mother is black from Nuba, Egypt. I feel so bad that you feel that way. Zuma

Horrible and deserve a refund!!
Kori_H

Bus is SOOO small! Had to walk sideways down the isle still bumping into people. My seat had a sharp piece of metal sticking up on side by window so had to seat sideways and killed my back. The bus driver was hard to u set stand and OMG never shut up for 3.5 hours about nonsense!!! Massive headache. Started pouring rain shortly into the trip so couldn’t take any pictures from inside the bus. Then didn’t get out at most of the places as lightning started too. They said would be back by 10:30 and was still at the Marines memorial, so called an Uber to be able to get back to eat before everything closed. So was horrible and feel we deserve a refund! It should have been cancelled with a thunderstorm warning, flood warning and massive lightning!!

Best tour experience by far!

Our experience was really terrific and helped us to create lasting memories of our trip without the hassle of driving and planning. It was all done for us! From the clean air conditioned coach to our courteous and safe driver, Chris and the engaging, funny and smart Sally, it was all too notch. We were given reasonable time to take pictures, get on and off the bus and we’re given great information about each stop before and after we disembarked from the bus. This made the experience even better to appreciate each monument. I would highly recommend this company and experience if you want to get the most out of all they key monuments. The night time made them all the more special. A million stars… five is not enough!!
