Washington DC Monuments by Moonlight Electric Cart Tour
From US$ 69.00

See Washington, D.C., monuments and landmarks on an evening tour by electric vehicle. Exploring D.C. after dark means seeing the landmarks dramatically lit, and the quiet, open-sided vehicle gives unobstructed views and great photo opportunities. From the Jefferson Memorial to the White House, and Capitol Hill, and a moving series of war memorials, you’ll see some of D.C.’s top sites with historic context from a guide.

What to Expect

Make your way to a central location in Washington, D.C., and then board an open-sided electric cart for an eco-friendly, small-group trip through the heart of the city.

Floodlights bring out the architectural details of each landmark, and you’ll see the Jefferson Memorial, Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, Tidal Basin, Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial, Washington Monument, and Lincoln Memorial at their very best.

Continue to the National World War I and National World War II memorials, the Korean War Veterans Memorial, and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on your way to the White House, which is notably photogenic after dark.

After a final stop by Capitol Hill, this tour concludes at the original departure point, which is within walking distance to other top D.C. destinations.

Super fun, even on a dangerously cold evening!

It was not an option for us. It was amusing though that we had a taxi drop us off at a designated address with no signage but more people kept arriving who were signed up for the tour. At the designated time the carts... More
