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.

Fantastic Night Tour

Really Worth It

Without a tour, you can miss all the nuances and hidden meaning to the monuments. A tour guide can greatly increase the meaning and impact the monuments have on you. EDGAR was a great guide. So knowledgeable, passionate, and humorous. Make sure you ask him...More

Beautiful, but fast, evening tour

Great evening activity and if the weather cooperates it's a fantastic way to see the monuments and the District. Overall, it's a great experience. The only challenge we had was at the Lincoln Memorial. We had 25 mins or so to cover three major monuments....More
