You haven't seen Washington DC until you've seen it at night! On this narrated evening tour, you'll enjoy the sights and sounds of Washington DC, and see first-hand how Washington turns into a different city when the sun goes down!


  • Fully narrated tour
  • All taxes, fuel surcharges and service fees included
  • See the sights illuminated at night

Onboard your trolley, you'll see 100 of Washington DC's most popular monuments and points of interest, including the Capitol Building, the White House, the Jefferson Memorial and the Washington Monument.

The trolley also makes night-time stops at the FDR Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the Korean War Veteran's Memorial and the Iwo Jima Memorial, allowing you to see these impressive monuments floodlit by night.

While you tour, your guide provides entertaining anecdotes and historical information about the sights, along with a sprinkling of bewitching ghost stories about the spirits who haunt the nation's capital.

This was a great tour. Our tour guide, Just Joe, was very knowledgeable, found a way to make personal connections to many of the sites, and could turn anything into a joke. We had a blast learning from him! I would definitely recommend this tour as the first thing you do in DC, because it helps you get the lay-of-the-land, and you can see all the major monuments and sites right away!

Some things that I think should go in the Viator Information section, though: 1 You can check in at the desk inside Union Station, but you don't have to, and they don't take electronic tickets there. But, the easier thing to do is just get in line at the front of Union Station they take paper or electronic vouchers there. 2 There will be a LONG line at the front of Union Station, but don't worry, there are multiple trolleys for each time slot. 3 If you don't want to get off the trolley at each of the stops, you don't have to! That helps to know if you are traveling with elderly or disabled friends. 4 Bring cash to tip your driver/tour guide. You'll want to!

The tour took us by the major monuments in Washington, DC, It was just last week, so it was not dark enough to really appreciate the monuments at night. However, we still enjoyed it and the trolley was comfortable. Jewel was our driver/guide and she was fantastic! She had quite a personality and interacted with her tourist riders personally. Her name says it all! She is truly a jewel for the Viator company! We had a great time!
