  • See the memorials and monuments of Washington DC bathed in light

Overview

Washington, DC comes alive under the cover of night in this sightseeing tour of the nation's Capital. The White House is radiantly lit at this hour and the illuminated dome of the US Capitol rises out of the darkness. The austere pillars of the Supreme Court are appareled in golden light and the John F. Kennedy Center sits peacefully on the glittering waters of the Potomac.

Step off the coach and honor America's war heroes at the Vietnam and Korean Memorials. Walk through the Jefferson and Lincoln Memorials, where two of the country's greatest leaders are immortalized in stone. The shop-lined streets of Georgetown are electric at night, and some of the city's most stately government buildings converge at the Federal Triangle.

Itinerary

Your English-speaking guide and driver for the day will pick you up from the Gray Line Terminal at Union Station in an air-conditioned coach and take you for a tour of Washington after dark.

You drive past America's most treasured monuments and memorials, illumined to magnificent effect, as nighttime transforms the nation's Capital into a city of lights.

Look out at the most enduring symbols of American democracy as your coach drives by the White House, US Capitol, The Kennedy Center, Supreme Court, House and Senate Office Buildings, Pennsylvania Avenue, Capitol Reflecting Pool, Georgetown, Marine Corps (Iwo Jima) Memorial and Library of Congress.

Leave the coach to pay your respects to the country's fallen soldiers at the FDR and Vietnam and Korean memorials.

Walk up the steps of history and stand beneath the moving sculpture of Abraham Lincoln, who sits deep in thought on a throne of limestone at the memorial built in his honor. Walk through the neoclassical triumph of the Jefferson Memorial, peering through its ionic columns to see the Washington Monument pierce the darkness beyond.

Watch the august buildings of the Federal Triangle stand silent and austere, waiting for morning.

Your coach will drop you at Union Station's Gray Line Terminal at tour's end.
