Great way to see DC in a short period of time. It would be difficult to see that many places , know the history and above all find parking at each place. The drivers knowledge was great , the valet service was worth it. Lots of walking so wear comfy shoes.

This was a great way to see the monuments and learn the history behind them and interesting facts. Unfortunately, there was a rain storm off and on the night we went but our guide Cassie made the most of it and did a great job. Our van driver also did a terrific job given the challenging weather conditions. I would highly recommend this tour.

Corey was right on time picking us up. We actually got started a few minutes early because everyone was ready. I loved that our family of four was able to see so many sights in such a short time. There is no way we could have done that without Corey’s driving plus all of his information was a bonus. He even helped us find a family friend’s name on the Vietnam Memorial wall. He had plenty of water and the van was super clean. Would 100% recommend.

Seeing the Lincoln Memorial at night was spectacular. I also enjoyed our guide’s stories. Dustin was a knowledgeable, friendly and funny host. This is my second time booking a night tour through Viator (the first one was in Rome) and both tours were spectacular. Something about seeing points of interest as the sun sets and into the night adds a whole new dimension to the experience. I am already researching a Viator night tour in Boston for my return trip to the East Coast in October.

We agree- Lincoln in the evening is stunning! Dustin is a one of kind- so happy to hear you enjoyed him. Many thanks for the 5 Stars!
