See Washington DC lit up at night on this guided bus tour. You’ll drive by and stop at some of the city’s top memorials and attractions, including the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the Marine Corps War Memorial, and the Lincoln Memorial, which are usually less crowded after dark. With transportation and navigation taken care of, all you have to do is sit back, relax, and sightsee.

What to Expect

Your Washington DC tour starts when you meet at the US Navy Memorial at least 15 minutes before your departure time. After you’ve checked in with your guide, hop aboard a comfortable coach bus for your guided tour.

As you tour DC at night, you’ll pass by landmarks in the US capital and take in sights of monuments and buildings brilliantly lit up. Some of the main attractions visited during this tour include the Jefferson Memorial, Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and Tidal Basin.

Your bus stops at some of the attractions where your guide leads the way and tells you about the history associated with each. These usually popular points of interest tend to be less busy at night, allowing you time and space to contemplate in peace.

This tour ends with a drop-off at the departure point.

The best way to see the sights

To start I must state our guide was Sunny, if your able to request her tour do so! She is very informative, friendly and has a wonderful sense of humor. Seeing the monuments at night is amazing and well worth it

Expensive for what it is

It was really warm so the air con was fabulous on the bus. And the free cold water was great. The tour guide was lovely. I'm not sure if they read from a script but this tour was very sparse on detail. It's good for...More

Time flew by!

I'm not sure how it's possible but this 3-hour tour somehow flew by! I had already seen all of the monuments covered during past visits but it was still quite an informative experience. Our night tour was rainy but our guide provided us with ponchos...More
