Randall was great and so was Daniel, the driver.
However, a lot happened at the end of the tour to dampen the experience. My friends and I were picked up at the Hyatt by shuttle
and brought to the bus. There was a shortage of buses; we waited on the sidewalk for one. Eventually, the tour began . Randall knows his history. He and Daniel deserve five stars.
However , after Randall left, Daniel was left with occupants on the bus who needed to be dropped off at the hotels. Where were the shuttles that had picked us up? GONE! Daniel passed the Hyatt. He did not know that we came from it. He was in Georgetown dropping people off. He wanted to go home, but had to drive the big bus through traffic back to the Hyatt.
So, does this happen each evening? If so, I would advise against being tempted by the hotel pickup. Have the tour company clarify that you will
be dropped off at the hotel. “NO” is not an option.
The company needs to get their act together. Edna M.

Xander was great. He was funny and very informative. I had done a similar tour last summer and I learn something new each time. DC at night is a whole different experience with the lights of the city and seeing the monuments lit up. The Korean Memorial at night is downright spooky. You can't see the Vietnam Memorial very well in the dark so save it for during the day and spend those few extra minutes at the Lincoln Memorial stop to see the Korean Memorial. I wish the stop at the WWII Memorial had been a little longer. The FDR Memorial was great as was the MLK.

This was one of the highlights for our family. Perfect weather and Mike the driver/ guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. Our two kids under 12 both enjoyed the tour. Seeing the monuments and capitol at night is the way to go.

After a little chaos in the line, we boarded a comfy trolley and headed on our tour with Jamie our driver. We had 2 adults and 3 kids (ages 9, 11 and 14) and we all enjoyed the tour. Jamie was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of information. We made 3 one half hour stops at the Jefferson, FDR/MLK and Lincoln memorials. Make the most of your time as a half hour goes quickly. Monuments looked awesome at night. Plenty of photo ops but not as good in Trolley as plastic windows fog up. Overall, a nice way to see alot in 2.5+ hours.
