AMAZING tour guide and night tour!
Dr_Y
, Aug 2022
I was able to book this tour after a flight cancellation causing me to spend an extra day in DC. I am SO glad that I did. I've toured many of the places before in the past during the day, but this tour was by far the best experience. Dewayne was AMAZING! He was extremely knowledgeable, funny, and made the tour all the more special. I've already told many on my social media that the night tour is the way to go, and to be sure to get Dewayne as a tour guide!

The tour guide was great The bus driver was horrible- unreliable, vanished, did not get back on time to the bus despite timings given to the passengers. The tour ended at 1130 instead of 1030 Not because we say more places but because we were waiting for him Tour guide was fantastic- knowledgeable, humorous and trying to make up for the bus driver

It was not what I thought!
Vernon_B
, Aug 2022
It was not what I thought! This was my sister’s first time in DC and I booked this tour based on the wonderful experience I had several years ago on a similar night tour. In looking for tours I purposely avoided any tour that stated “hop on, hop off”. I wanted a “guided” tour because I wanted my sister to get all those nuggets of information that only a knowledgeable, history loving, guide could give. I did not get that! What I got was essentially the thing that I was trying to avoid — a self guided, hop on, hop off tour. Our “guide” pretty much stayed on the bus and told us what time to be back. If that is what you are seeking then you would probably enjoy this tour; for the “guide” seemed nice and had a sense of humor, the driver was very kind and always stood outside the bus to welcome us back aboard which was very helpful when trying to find your particular bus as it got dark. I however was disappointed and found myself longing to be with other groups that had a guide walking with them to the monuments and giving narratives about each one. It just wasn’t what I thought. sigh:(

Beautiful, interesting… Vernon was exuberant and fun. He kept us all together, even in torrential rains! Jenny was there for us and flexible to keep us safe and comfortable. We’ll done! Only tip I could give to the most excellent team would be that sometimes the interior lights were on making it difficult to see out in the dark.

Short changed by lackadaisical guide
Stefanie_V
, Aug 2022
We definitely drove and hit many key tourist spots but our tour guide was incomprehensible even with English as his main language. He didn’t get off to guide us at the stops - he sat on the bus and played on his phone. He almost left with ppl still at sites. I can’t recommend this as you could get this bad apple but the other guides seemed decent. Our group just got unlucky.
