Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
See Washington D.C.'s most memorable sites with knowledgeable and passionate local guides, by night! This 4-hour tour uncovers the beauty of Washington D.C. after the sun sets. We will tour Rosslyn, Georgetown, the Potomac River waterfront, the National Cathedral, Dupont Circle, Chinatown, Downtown, the National Mall, and the magnificent monuments and memorials illuminated by night.
  • Visit DC’s monuments and memorials illuminated at night
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off: Let a driver navigate the city for you
  • A guide points out fascinating landmarks easy to miss on your own
  • Small group size of 14 or fewer ensures a personalized experience
What to Expect
Your evening starts with a convenient pickup from your downtown DC hotel. Public transit and city streets can be confusing to navigate on your own at night, so settle in and let the driver handle the directions for you. The tour departs at 7pm, just after sunset. Enjoy onboard commentary as the guide points out iconic DC landmarks you may not recognize on your own in the evening light. Stop for walking tours of landmarks illuminated under the night sky, including the White House, Washington Monument, and Lincoln Memorial. The guide provides entertaining historical context for each point of interest. Questions and suggestions are welcome throughout the evening: A small group size ensures that the tour can be tailored to the preferences of the group. After approximately four hours, the bus drops you off at the doorstep of your hotel.
