We were part of a small group on an open air bus. Our guide, Mr. Map, was THE BEST. So much information, history and details from a native who loves his city. The views at night are a beautiful stark contrast to those during the day and the added narration from Mr Map gave everything such life and color. We are so pleased we booked this tour. Highly recommend!

Our tour guide, Dre, was just awesome! He was exceptionally knowledgeable, personable and engaging, especially with my grandson, Jacob. He was actually the highlight or our tour, honestly. So so hoped! And our bus driver Tori was just as great! Worst storm of our lives, but they kept us safe and informed! Great Job!

Toi (driver) and Alicia (guide) were great! It was a mother, daughter, granddaughter trip for us and my child’s first time to DC. Highly recommend the night open air tour, as it’s cooler and nice to see the monuments lit up in the dark. Get their early so you can pick the best seats. Alicia was super knowledgeable and friendly as was Toi. The cold water was nice to have too!

Mr. Map did a tremendous job of bringing the city to life. His perspective as a local was great! Our open air vehicle was perfect, as we traveled throughout the city on a warm summer night. We had just the right amount of time at each stop. Thank you!

Monuments at night

Different perspective at night. Monuments stand out and not as many people so easier to take pictures and be socially distanced. Little harder to keep track of guide in the dark. Had light drizzle but tour guide handed out ponchos

Nick was our tour guide and he made the experience come to life! Everything from his knowledge of history to the jokes he made along the way made the tour so memorable. Nick provided us with excellent background information for everything we saw and gave us adequate time to look at the monuments, sites, etc. My 8 year daughter even thought it was so nice that he / your company provided us with water for what was a very hot DC evening! 10 out of 5 stars for Nick and Viator!!

Nick the “tour God”, did a fabulous job with our night time tour. He knew all the basic info plus lots of extra interesting facts, and even threw in some corny but delightful jokes. We unfortunately had rain during the tour but that didn’t stop him from giving us a great experience by re-routing to see some other sites. Highly recommend.

Perfect time of day for photos

It was a great experience. I’m glad I did it and the family really enjoyed themselves. As the name implies “Dusk Guide Night Tour” is great to see the monuments in that lighting as the day fades away, makes for great photos. Our guide Alicia kept us entertained and Ed got us there safe, they look out for us at every stop. They give plenty of time to explore the monuments once you stop. The tour flowed really well and the next thing you know we’ve reach the end. Nothing but good things to say. I would do it again.
