The busses only book enough so everyone has a seat on the top, they passed out new headphones to listen to the informational tour guide, and we got to stop and get off the bus at the Lincoln Memorial for 20 minutes (and a bathroom break). The staff was friendly and the night tour was a beautiful way to experience the monuments. Highly recommended!

Ada was a fabulous driver for our trip. The pre - recorded commentary was interesting. Ada provided a stop at the MLK memorial after we were unable to see the Iwo Jima site- police blocked it. She also provided rain ponchos that came in handy for the last 10 min of the trip! The nite open air bus ride was great! ** Ada escorted us to the Korean War memorial so we could find it and get back in time for departure! We were using crutches to walk! We were afraid to miss the bus! She was so kind and thoughtful.

We took this tour the evening we landed in DC. It gave us a very nice feel of the city, in 2 hours. You only get to see these places from far, sitting on the bus. Only Lincoln Memorial - there is a stop. Later, next day evening we walked around and visited them on foot, after visiting the Smithsonian museums, in the morning. Also recommend the hop on - off bus in the morning - to see things up close.
