First, the night tour was awesome. Henry, our guide, was wonderful. He knew a ton and was funny too. Not all monuments listed under the night tour will be visited, only what the bus can get to and from in 3-4 hours. Plenty of time to get off at some of the major monuments and see them up close and... More

Purchased a Groupon 48 hour pass with night tour. We love to do Hop/On Hop/Off in every new city we visit, and this one did not disappoint. The drivers and tour guides were all helpful and knowledgeable. Only one day/stop did we have to wait a little longer than 30 minutes for a bus, all other stops were within 20... More

We did the monument by moonlight tour on April 28th and LOVED it! The children we brought with us are ages 8-12 years old and they had a great time too. It is not a hop on hop off tour in the sense that you hop off the bus and go out on your own and then catch the next... More

Henry and Nick took us and the most beautiful educational and swift tour ever. They did a very good job with the commentating and the drive. We could not have picked a better tour A++

Henry is a FANTASTIC tour guide and Nick was an excellent driver. We learned so much about Washington DC, the history and meaning of the memorials we visited and kept us laughing the whole time. Highly recommend!

She knew everything you need to know about the city. She was very nice and very professional. She even brought bubbles. The first buss was very nice and the driver was good but the 2nd buss was trash.

I found a Groupon deal last minute and decided to go for it after reading good reviews. I got the 48 hour pass which includes a free Twilight tour. Henry and Anthony were the best combination ever!. They gave us insight and background information that none of the other tour drivers gave us during the day. Highly recommend finding a... More

Went on the twilight tour with Henry as guide and Nick as driver. Henry was super entertaining - he was funny and he knew his stuff! The entire trip was spent with everyone on the top deck cackling to Henry's jokes! Henry and Nick worked together really well to get us all the best photos and we had the most... More

Our driver, Tammy, was wonderful. However, we got stuck in front of the capitol because of mechanical issues. So, we waited and waited for another bus that was almost completely packed. Then, our original bus took on different passengers and left before we did. No explanation was given for why this happened. Between getting stuck and having to wait for... More

This was a great tour! Our guide Henry was the best! Very informative and entertaining! We stopped for pictures at the Whitehouse and Henry kept everyone entertained while we waited to get a good shot. We walked around at FDR and the Lincoln Memorial. Many stops with great narrative from Henry! You can tell he loves his job! Bathroom on... More
