Take a trip to the twilight zone with this mesmerizing dusk city highlights tour. As night falls in the capital, all the most famous monuments are lit up, casting a glimmering glow over the city and offering countless photo opportunities. You’ll begin the tour at the U.S. Navy Memorial, before heading through the half-light to major attractions such as the White House, the Korean War Memorial, and the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial.

You’ll find each one features special illuminations at night, with regular opportunities to hop off and see the spectacular sculpture work up close. The full shimmering skyline can be seen at the start and endpoint of your tour, which also includes views of the twinkling Tidal Basin and Thomas Jefferson Memorial. Washington, DC, night tours don’t get much more magical than this!

My family of 4(me, my husband, my 14yr old daughter & 10 yr old son) had a fantastic time on our night tour. Our tour guide Alicia was wonderful- friendly, enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. John, our driver, was great as well. We loved visiting all the monuments and memorials but also hearing about the various buildings scattered throughout DC as we travelled from destination to destination. Alicia encouraged us to ask questions and gave various tidbits at each stop and we all learned something new. It was definitely a highlight of our trip to DC and an extra bonus of going right after Christmas was all the decorations throughout the city. I would definitely recommend!

My family and I really enjoyed being able to see our Nation's Capital and its many monuments at night in a safe and comfortable environment. Seeing the monuments in a glowing moonlight definitely gives them an enchanted perspective. Our tour guide Thomas was full of knowledge and had many stories to add as well. Would recommend this tour to others visiting the city!

I highly, highly recommend this tour. Christopher was our guide. He was friendly, well-versed in DC knowledge, funny and all-around awesome.. DC at night is one of the best ways to see the monuments and tour the city. No crowds and the monuments are almost more striking at night. Small tour group size was perfect.

I was particularly impressed by the knowledge and warm personality of the driver. He engaged me and my fellow passengers so the experience was truly personal and Interactive. The tour hit every spot and more that I expected to see. It was well worth the money , and it will be my first booking the next time I am out here. Thank you so much for the chance to review. What an excellent adventure!

Great tour - tour guide was very informative and personable. Seeing the monuments at night definitely showcases them on another level - quieter and more introspective.
