    We thoroughly enjoyed our night tour of the Washington DC monuments. At 2.5 hours it was perfectly timed to make the most of all that we wanted to see. Jennifer, our tour guide, was an expert wealth of knowledge and gave us some great sightseeing options for the following day. Make sure you have your walking shoes on as it was a delight.

    Even before we arrived in DC, I knew this would be a good tour. The manager Tom had to get in contact to advise of an issue with the guide for the night we had booked. He was very quick in rearranging it for us and then thanked us for our flexibility! On the day of the tour, we met our guide and realised it was just the two of us, me and my sister. This worked out really well as it was completely tailored to what we wanted to see. We were doing the DC at Night tour. We had a really enjoyable time. Our guide, whose name I cannot remember (I'm sorry), was very knowledgeable and she made it really interesting. Even as a history geek, I learned so much more than I anticipated. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would definitely recommend it.
