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.

This was a fast, thorough tour that gave us a chance to visit some of the outlying museums we didn’t have time to get to. It also gave us an idea of what we wanted to go back and see again. Love our guide MJ.
