Jude the tour guide and Chris the bus driver made the evening a pleasure! Seeing the memorials at night have them a while new perspective. the Korean war memorial was so spooky and the statues seemed to come alive. it does get real dark out so watch your step. would recommend this adventure to everyone!

Our guide, Tyrone was entertaining and very knowledgeable. He knew so many facts about all of the monuments and memorials we were shown and visited. We were able to get out and walk up to all of the Memorials if we wanted and although it was a lot of walking we’re glad we got out at each stop. The night tour was nice because it was cooler outside and all of the Memorials were so stunning lit up.

The tour was good and we saw a lot of sites. Time at the sites we’re limited so it felt a bit rushed but there were a lot to see. Tour guide was funny and had a lot to say. It went fairly late into the night and it got a bit dark to see everything from the bus. It was a bit confusing at the meeting site as several people were on the same tour but by a different name.
