Itinerary

Your evening starts with a convenient pickup from your downtown DC hotel. Public transit and city streets can be confusing to navigate on your own at night, so settle in and let the driver handle the directions for you.

The tour departs at 7pm, just after sunset. Enjoy onboard commentary as the guide points out iconic DC landmarks you may not recognize on your own in the evening light.

Stop for walking tours of landmarks illuminated under the night sky, including the White House, Washington Monument, and Lincoln Memorial. The guide provides entertaining historical context for each point of interest.

Questions and suggestions are welcome throughout the evening: A small group size ensures that the tour can be tailored to the preferences of the group. After approximately four hours, the bus drops you off at the doorstep of your hotel.

I don’t think so. We had to get to one of the pick up locations inside DC. You could always call and ask!

They pick up in downtown hotel area. If you are outside this they will arrange a pick up point with you. Just give them a call and they work it out with you.
