We did a night tour and really enjoyed seeing the sites. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about all of the sites. The bus driver was great too! I enjoyed the FDR Memorial because the tour guide actually showed us the way through the memorial and took us to Martin Luther King Jr. It was a beautiful experience to see everything at night.

Great Night Tour

Reviewed on 8/14/2016, By franny3333
Our tour was really good. Our tour guide was Leanyse and our driver was Pierre. I thought Pierre did a great job driving and Leanyse was very polite, very informative and did a great job explaining all of the sights. I would definitely recommend this tour to one of my friends.

It was hot during this time of the year (August) recommend drinking plenty of water and bringing a few with you on the road trip.

Thanks for a great night in DC!

Great Guide & Driver Awful Ticket Reps

Reviewed on 7/2/2016, By Karen
Our guide was great and had a great driver for the tour! But be aware that them taking no reservations, taking tickets online, Groupon and onsite makes for no planning on numbers. The ticket agents were so unorganized and unaware that they caused a 45 min delay to the start of the tour. They even decided not to honor Groupon which 50% of the riders had. Truly needs an improvement on the ticket experience and process.

DC Sights provides a wonderful opportunity to not only see the capitol but also learn of its geographical layout and history. Our guide, Ken, a retired Marine, was a wealth of knowledge and very engaging. The monument tour at night was beautiful. This experience is a great way to kick off a memorable DC holiday.
