Very nice, but not quite as advertised
Jeanne_W
, Jul 2022
My visiting family enjoyed the tour and the knowledgeable tour guide Vlad and the excellent driver. They liked seeing the monuments at night, leaving more time to do other things in the daytime. However, I was disappointed that the FDR Memorial is not on the tour, since it is advertised as being on the tour under "What to expect." Not only is it advertised, but 25 minutes are allocated for it. The tour guide we couldn't see it at night because it is dark. "Monuments at Night" implies darkness. Also there was not enough time to spend at the Korean/Lincoln/Vietnam Memorials. So little time that we skipped the Vietnam Memorial, and nearly missed the bus. We had exactly 5 minutes at the Iwo Jima, to walk around to the other side to meet the bus, but no one mentioned to look toward the city to see the other monuments aligned. Too much rushing. I was hugely disappointed. Last year the four of us did the Viator tour "National Mall at Night" and it was much better. I couldn't figure out why we were rushed last year, since that tour also had a stop at the Jefferson Memorial.

Lucky to be with the smaller group
Chris_M
, Jul 2022
Really, we had a 5-star tour but it could have been a 1-star. We just so happened to be in line at the cut off for a second bud, so only had about 20 people on our tour with a great guide. But had we been earlier in line we would have been on a full coach of 50+ people and it would have been unwieldy. So beware if you are looking for a smaller group tour, this may not be it. But the monuments are beautiful at night.

Thank you for your honest review but be mindful that this is at the high season especially with the approaching holiday there's a big crowd. Normally buses are not that full. Zuma

Iwo Jima, Martin Luther King and Lincoln Memorials at night. July 4th weekend is really crowded because allot of people come in for the fireworks, so allow extra time to do anything!
