DC at sunset and night is one of the most beautiful cities in the world! Experience the beauty yourself during this luxurious city highlights tour at dusk. As night falls in the capital, all of the 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 then board the luxury bus to iconic attractions including the White House, the Korean War Memorial, and the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial.

Each building and monument features a special illumination at night. Hop off the bus and explore the memorials with your guide, taking advantage of multiple photo opportunities.

We had a great time with this tour. Our tour guide, Brittney, was fantastic. She knew everything there was to know about the city and the monuments we were seeing and was very funny. Overall, the tour was well worth the time and money to go.

Would highly recommend to anyone.
Not as good as you would expect.

This tour included a lot more walking than we anticipated. We went back the next day to see everything in the light because the lighting at night left you wanting more.
