Washington DC Monuments by Moonlight Tour by Trolley

1,595 reviews
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.

Spent the morning at Fords Theater and saw the box where Abraham Lincoln was shot and the stage onto which John Wilkes Booth jumped afterward. Also went to the house across the street and saw the room in which he died. A little disappointed that the interior was a recreation rather than original, but it was done extremely well.

My son is a big fan of Lincoln. Just seeing the gun Booth used was a facanating experience. I recommend this to anyone who loves history.

This was definitely one of the highlights from our trip. I couldn't imagine not stopping at Fords theater while in D.C. The story that was told was very interesting and informative. I wish the tour went into a little more detail but it seems that there are other walking tours that may tell more of the story. Don't skip out on the museum across the street its very informative as well.

My husband, kids (ages 14, 12, 10) all thought this was one of the highlights of our DC trip. You learn a lot about the United States in that period, and of course, Abraham Lincoln and his assassination. The Park Ranger who did the interpretive presentation in the theater itself was great and really brought the story of that evening to life. Highly recommend!

Beautifully restored and maintained. The theatre is breathtaking and the folks who work here do so out of a sense of passion.
