    What to Expect
    This unique trolley tour provides an entirely new perspective on the city of Washington DC and its many famous locations by moonlight.

    Meet your guide and the rest of the tour group by the main entrance at Union Station. Then climb aboard one of the orange and green trolleys and enjoy the view with live commentary from a local guide.

    Ride along the same streets the presidents have traveled and see the Washington Monument lit up for the evening. Pass the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, illuminated from the Tidal Basin; the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial, featuring cascading waterfalls and sculptures; and the National World War I and World War II Memorials, with a spectacular fountain display.

    There’s also the Lincoln Memorial, the Korean War Veterans Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the White House, Capitol Hill and the dome of the United States Capitol, plus the United States Supreme Court Building and the Library of Congress. Along the way, hear the historic stories, facts and anecdotes that make the city of Washington DC one of the most popular tourist destinations in the United States.

    I don't exactly remember. I believe we got in line at about 7:00 p.m. We took the tour in June, when there was maximum daylight. So the hours may adjust shorter in the winter when it is much colder and darker.
