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

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!

Washington DC is a beautiful city at night it’s even more spectacular seeing it from a birds eye view. The driver stopped at all the sights so we can take pictures. The guide explained in depth about the famous, historical buildings and memorials that we saw. He was even able to answer all our questions that we had regarding the White House. If you want an educated tour I really recommend City Sights DC.

Washington DC is beautiful at night

We did the day tour and had a decent time.
It was too hot and my 4 year old daughter was not a very happy camper.
We did the night tour the next night and we all really loved it.
Seeing the capitol lit up at night was magnificent.
It was also much cooler which made the trip even better.
