Visit the World War II Memorial, then travel on foot to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, set at the edge of the Tidal Basin.

Felt like a personal experience. Going at night less crowds. We can’t believe how much we saw with the right amount of narration before each stop.

We appreciated the small group van. Our guide was pleasant and courteous we saw a lot of sights in a short period of time. The guide's script was somewhat superficial and sparse, not much more than pointing out landmarks - would appreciate more depth with pertinent stories.

The guide was very knowledgeable and kind. The monuments at night are breathtaking! A little disappointed we missed one of the monuments that was advertised but hands down would do this again!

Worth the time and money to see the monuments at night!!

Monuments were beautiful at night …. So different and majestic at night with the special lighting. We were very disappointed that most stops we were allowed only 5-10 min by tour guide (most of that time was spent walking to/from the site sadly).

Lots of history, not all 10, could have had a better driver.

Our guide was Marie Ann. She shared a great deal of history with us. The night experience is a must. We did not visit Iwo Jima or Korean War Memorial. We weren’t able to take in many of the drive locations as the driver was speeding past them. It’s almost as if he didn’t know the guide route. Ann had to correct the driver many times and he actually fell asleep during one of our stops. Once we were dropped off he drove off so fast.

While visiting Washington D.C. for a conference, my co-workers and I explored The National Mall during the day when we first arrived. We then decided, two days later, to take the moonlight tour through Viator and, WOW! So glad we did! Our driver and tour Guide, Lori, were over the top awesome! The knowledge Lori gave us at all the sites was very detailed and in depth. I had missed so many important, and very interesting parts of these iconic monuments when I had visited them on my own, without a tour guide, just a few days before. Being with Lori was as if seeing these places for the first time even though I had been there just two days before. The way Lori told the background stories was excellent, she kept my ear the entire time. The small details she shared at every site, were easily missed when I went on my own. Lori was the most excellent tour guide. The moonlight tour by Viator was the best experience I had while visiting Washington D.C. Highly recommend and worth every penny!!
