Overview
Washington DC looks spectacular when lit up at night, so make the most of your time in the city by going on an evening tour on an open-air trolley. Going on an organized tour saves time working out local public transport, and means you can learn along the way through guide commentary. Tick off lots of top landmarks such as the Lincoln Memorial, the White House, the Washington Memorial, and more.

Had a great time with family to visit the monuments at night. Our tour guide Buckeye was entertaining and knew a lot of history about these monuments. They blocked off some of the seats to keep the social distance.
