I did the Monuments by Moonlight tour with my mother (70+), my husband and our two boys, ages 9 and 12 years. We loved it. It stopped at the Iwo Jima monument, the FDR and MLK monuments and the Lincoln Memorial, Korean Memorial and the Vietnam Memorial. Vince was our driver and guide and he really made our experience worth it! He is knowledgeable and a terrific story teller. My boys were riveted by his stories of old Washington DC and presidential lore. He pointed out the perfect place to get a picture and the best views. If you can request Vince's trolley, I would do it. The only thing we didn't do was to bring water with us. You can buy water at the MLK visitor's shop but that took precious time away from the monuments and we ended up missing part of the FDR memorial. Also, my mother takes longer to get from one place to another, so that infringed a bit on our ability to see more. I highly recommend the tour. The monuments were beautiful at night and it gives tired families a chance to sit and view from a comfortable seat. It was one of our favorite things in DC.
