Overview
See Washington, D.C., monuments and landmarks on an evening tour by electric vehicle. Exploring D.C. after dark means seeing the landmarks dramatically lit, and the quiet, open-sided vehicle gives unobstructed views and great photo opportunities. From the Jefferson Memorial to the White House, and Capitol Hill, and a moving series of war memorials, you’ll see some of D.C.’s top sites with historic context from a guide.

This tour was great as the monuments are lit up at night. It was also a small private group since you are in an electric car. Our guide, Steve, was very nice and extremely knowledgable about everything on the tour. Highly Recommend.
