Great way to see the city if you are new to the city. The monuments are very dramatic when lit at night.

The lady at the counter was amazing. We were two minutes late and she was able to connect us with our tour. Totally unexpected and so appreciated. We met up with our tour.

Even though we had seen many of the memorials and landmarks in the daytime, they were even more stunning at night. This was a great chance for my mother, who has a bad knee, to get to see the city, and our driver was very knowledgeable and courteous.

ITINERARY

DC After Dark

If you’ve ever wanted to see the sights of the capital city in the twilight hours, this is the tour for you! Washington DC is fantastic by day and, at night, it really comes to life, with the monuments lit up from below.

What can you see on this Tour?

Seeing DC monuments at night is a special experience that not many visitors to the city try out. The various landmarks look brilliant while illuminated and with this tour you’ll see so many of them. Our in-depth tours is available almost every evening of the year, so we’ll take you around the city any time.

There are stops on the tour at which visitors can stop off and take a look around, such as the impassive Lincoln Memorial and the inspiring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial. The Lincoln Memorial is one of the best sights to see in the city, as it’s a humbling homage to the 16th president. The architecture of the memorial is astounding and looking upon it is sure to inspire awe in any visitor.
War memorials also take pride of place in the city, with the Iwo Jima and Korean War Memorials, both of which look especially striking in the dark. The Korean War Memorial is made up of 19 life-size soldier figures and, at night, these are illuminated by spotlights. It makes for a wonderful trip for those interested in military history or sculptures. A stop at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall is also a humbling experience and with this tour you can spend time truly appreciating it. There are almost 60,000 names on this war memorial of those who were killed or missing during the conflict.

These memorials are just a couple of the most famous in the city and they are truly breathtaking at dusk.

The White House is often pictured on television during the day, so not many realize how it looks at night. The entire structure of the iconic building is lit and ,on this tour, you’ll get the opportunity to take a picture in front of it. This is the quintessential Washington DC sight, so you wouldn’t want to leave the city without a photo opportunity.

While you’re touring the city, you’ll also get to see more of the city from the comfort of our motor coaches. Travel in comfort as you see the U.S. Capitol Building, Washington Monument, Pennsylvania Avenue and more. Our experienced and licensed driver guide will show you all of the sights and give you insider knowledge on their history.

Why should you go on this Tour?

This tour is for any visitor that wants to see another side to the city and its monuments. The history and atmosphere experienced on the trip are unlike any other, so it’s perfect for those who have been on tours before, as well as newcomers to the city. Ride around the city in luxury and enjoy yourself as we show you DC after dark!
