Great !!! Guide was fantastic! Thanks for a very memorable experience!!Reviewed by: Suzanne H, March 2014
This was a really nice trip, but it is in a trolley and so we couldn't really see out the windows with the plastic down (because it was winter.) It would be better in vans or a small bus. However, the stops at the Lincoln, MLK were truly beautiful at night. I'm glad we went, but it should be in a regular bus.Reviewed by: Delia M, February 2014
Tour guide was awesome, but the night tour itself was not worth the money in my opinion. Plastic on bus windows made it impossible to take good pictures so several passengers chose to roll up the plastic window covering leaving their window areas open to take pictures. Only problem was it was in the 20's outside so the other passengers were so cold that the whole tour was a huge disappointment.Reviewed by: Terry B, February 2014
I wish we would have gone by the White House and more federal buildings. Also the tour guide talked so fast we couldnt understand him. He did, however, drop us off at our bus/ hotel stop.Reviewed by: jenna, February 2014
Where to start? Upon booking with Viator I called the trolley company and asked about hotel pickup. They directed me to the Mayflower, telling me to wait in front at 650 pm for the 730 pm Moonlight tour shuttle. We went to the Mayflower. No shuttle. I called the trolley company and asked where's the shuttle. Then informed the pick up on side street of hotel. Duh! So we run over to side, only to see the shuttle pulling away. We gave chase and caught up, banged on side door - were ignored. Grrr!
Then catch cab to Union Station for trolley departure. Arrive 7:20 and $15 poorer. Show our Viator e-voucher to ticket man in front of bus. Oh, that's not a ticket. You have to go inside a station and show that to agent to get paper ticket. We go inside and stand in long line moving at snail's pace. One agent at desk - must be first day on job. Other gal is taking people's e-voucher info and transferring it to form on clipboard. We are given form and told to give to agent for paper ticket. What a joke. Everyone in line was laughing about how inane this process was. What is the purpose of the e-ticketing system? And barcode on our e-voucher? Never used. System is a mess!!
Finally got paper ticket. Went on trolley, which was overbooked and had people standing. For a 2-1/2 hour tour?!? Well, actually ending up being 2 hours, as we left 30 minutes late!
Never again. Though tour was nice, aggravation wasn't worth it.Reviewed by: Daniel S, February 2014
