    I would recommend this night tour to people visiting the city for conferences. It is about 2.5 hrs long, very thorough and informative. However, make sure that you give yourself at least an hr to find their location as the instructions were not clear and we missed the first tour. Luckily , we were able to reschedule for the next day.

    Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the city and incredibly enthusiastic. He kept our attention the entire night with chilling ghost stories. The nicest part was that the walk was not very far so we were not exhausted at the night?s end.

    The hardest part was finding the departure point for the tour in the bus/train station. There were no signs and other tourist tours depart from the front not back of the building.\nThe tour itself was excellent though in one or two stops it could be shortened by 10 minutes.

    This was for a group of people mixed ages who had never been to DC before and it was a great introduction to the city

  • 2 / 5
    The driver narration was so garbled that neither could understand most of what was being said. The time allowed at most sites was not nearly long enough due to the distance bus parked from actual site. We understand that security is extremely tight so tour should allow more time to reach actual monument, take pictures and enjoy bring there. I would not reccommend this tour.

    We had extreme difficulty finding the boarding location. You need to give better directions to finding the bus loading area. We had left ample time to get to the mall and get some dinner prior to the tour. However, because we could not find the loading area, we ran around the mall in a frantic panic afraid that we would miss the tour. You need better directions; a sign in the mall would have helped immensely. \nBecause of the difficulty, we didn't get to eat prior to the tour, so didn't get dinner until after the tour. That part was not so enjoyable, especially running through the entire mall trying to find the bus loading area. No one in the mall seemed to know where to direct us either.\nThe driver/tour guide was very friendly and cordial. It was nice not having to drive or walk to the major sites. The evening hours also made it cooler.
