    I like the open cart so you can get a breeze, hop on and off easily, and have a small group.
    Night time was the time to do this..great stops, Highly recommend,
    Being in a smaller group is the best way to see the monuments.

    We were here for a conference. This tour gave us a chance to having an amazing tour on the little free time we had. Highly recommend.
    Don't miss it!

    Meg_M, Sept 2023
    Incredible tour!! I’d give it 10 stars and recommend this to anybody who wants to learn more and see more of DC. Peter was extraordinarily knowledgeable about the history of the city and all the signature sites. Our guide was fantastic!
    Incredible DC night!!
    Rebecca_B, Sept 2023
    Hans was incredible! We had a big group of people and he remembered everyone’s names, gave us so many recommendations, and was so informative. The group was skeptical going into this, but after the experience we had with Hans we would definitely recommend him and this tour going forward! 10/10!
    Beautiful at night!
    Karen_L, Sept 2023
    Joel provides a great tour, very informative and interesting facts and perspectives about our nations capital. Nice electric vehicle The monuments are so beautifully lit at night.
    Elizabeth_D, Sept 2023
    Out tour guide, Peter (from Massachusetts), was the absolute BEST!!! He was full of knowledge about all of the monuments and sights we were seeing. His information about Washington DC and America history, in general, was enlightening and much appreciated. REQUEST PETER AS YOUR GUIDE!! Seeing the monuments and the city of DC lit up at night was beautiful!! Our family thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The small group tour on the cute little red cart was the PERFECT way to get around the city and hit all the highlights. Excellent experience!!!! Awesome way to tour our Capitol city and the DC monuments!! 10/10 RECOMMEND! To note: we met right at the entrance to the Judiciary Square Metro station Entrance off of F street (At National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial - Across the street from the F St entrance to the National Building Museum), 450 F St. NW, Washington, DC 20001. Peter kindly dropped us off back at our hotel, he was the BEST.
    Magic by Moonlight
    Gina_F, Sept 2023
    Don’t miss out on booking this tour! The Moonlight Electric Cart Tour is more intimate than some of the larger options out there as there is only a maximum of 7 passengers. Our guide Teddy was fantastic. He delivered the facts of the tour with a local perspective, a great sense of humor AND a largely DC based musician playlist. The sites are magical and awe inspiring at night and the tour provides a whole different perspective of the city. You won’t regret the experience!
    Buyer beware!
    Carla_K, Sept 2023
    We booked this tour in July for our September visit to the area. The night of our tour, a thunderstorm with a ton of rain and lightening hit the area. This is an open air experience. We immediately called Viator. Due to the weather, and my limited mobility (wheelchair) I can’t walk much less run to shelter. We called 3 hours before the tour asking for a refund or to rebook for the next day. Viator said it was up to the vendor, the vendor said we had to go through Viator since we didn’t book directly with them. We were disappointed with the run around. Disappointed that both companies care more about profits than safety or customer service. In the end, our request for both a refund or rebook was denied. We are out $171. Dangerous weather should be a reason for a refund especially considering my mobility
    Yoha (sp?) was the BEST...
    elizabeth_S, Sept 2023
    Yoha (sp?) was the BEST guide and made the tour exceptional! We thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend him highly to anyone considering this tour.

    tonjencooke, Sept 2023
    We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Carl our tour guide and driver was most informative and made the stops very easy as we knew what we were looking for. The weather was beautiful too as there was no wind so photos captured the reflection pool so well. I would recommend this tour.
    So much fun!
    Shelley_M, Sept 2023
    Amazing way to see the monuments and our guide was the best! We learned so much. Thanks so much for the experience.
    Worth it!
    Janet_B, Sept 2023
    Hans, our tour guide, was friendly, well spoken and took pictures of each group on his tour. It was restful after a day of walking, walking, and more walking. Thank you.
    Do It!!!
    Leah_L, Sept 2023
    What a great way to view the beautiful monuments! I was in awe of every one of them. Our tour guide was kind and knowledgeable. He gave us plenty of time for pictures while telling us all about each one. 10/10 would recommend!
    Night Tour
    Kathy_G, Sept 2023
    Teddy was a fabulous guide and very knowledgeable in Washington DC history. Perfect way to the National Mall at night!
    This electric cart tour is the best way to tour the monuments!
    Patty_R, Sept 2023
    Our guide, Bill, was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. He knew exactly where to stop and gave us plenty of time to ask questions and take pictures. He also offered to take everyone’s pictures in front of the different monuments.
    Enjoyable with a knowledgeable guide
    Brenda_C, Sept 2023
    It was a unique way to see several monuments. They look so different all lit up at night. The electric roadster is a fun way to get around and made it easy to get in and out to see the sights. Great guide.
    Good Tour but don’t get the rumble seat
    Louis_L, Sept 2023
    I have taken this tour before and found last night to be average. Two things stood out. We were a party of three and joined a group of very Vice people who were a party of 4. Two of us were seated in the rumble seats a of the vehicle, this is not the guide’s fault but they need to eliminate those seats. When facing backwards and getting told to “look ahead” to either left or right it’s impossible to look ahead! Also the guide was a very nice man who treated my elderly father VERY well, but he needs some polish. There is no “secretary of the Justice Department” but there is an Attorney General. James Smithson was never in the US…he was pretty big on a conspiracy theory regarding Lincoln/Booth but doesn’t mention the other assassination attempts that night.
    Maybe we were just unlucky in our guide
    Deborah_S, Sept 2023
    Took this tour last week. Honestly, the absolute worst tour we've ever had and we travel and tour frequently. Granted, the tour guide said he was new...but besides the just awful narration (a person in the tour asked 'what is the building on the left'...a huge government building...he replied 'I don't know') The tour guide's driving was terrifying. We were never so glad for the end of this 'tour' Would have been more informative if a 5th grader had taken us around instead...and probably safer.
    Response from Host, Sept 2023

    Perfect Small Group Tour
