Washington DC After Dark
There's a certain magic to Washington DC that can only be experienced at night. It's a time when the powerful Lincoln Memorial is bathed in a soft white light, and the Washington Monument, Capitol, and White House appear even more grandiose. Along with a knowledgeable local guide, take a tour of Washington DC well after the sun has gone down, and feel the buzz, magic, and pulse of America's capital by night.
What to Expect
On this tour you’ll get a rare peek at the heart of the city with its lofty memorials revealing their mysteries with the play of the moonlight on their faces. If you crave amazing sights with breathtaking beauty, this tour of DC at night is not one to miss. This fascinating bus ride through thicket and glitter shows familiar landmarks like the Capitol Building, the Washington Monument, the White House, to name a few.

Imagine seeing the Lincoln Memorial or the Jefferson Memorial in their full magnificence casting pearlescent reflections in the ultramarine blue expanse of the lake, which mirrors their splendor. This night tour lasts about 3 to 4 hours and lets you discover the moonlight side of DC. It lets you glide through mesmerizing lull punctuated only by the structural grandeur of the monuments sculpting the nightscape with streaks of light crisscrossing the skies. You will be riveted by your tour guide’s live narration that adds life to this unforgettable fresco.

You’ve got a pass to a front seat to see in your very eyes history unfold its mysteries and reveal Washington DC main attractions.
