    What an amazing tour, the night was perfect and our guide Sooner Steve was excelente. We got to see everything, had enough time to get off at the stops and the history and information given by Sooner was priceless. I recommend this tour for anyone and even more for families with teens.

    Sooner Steve was the best tour guide I could ever imagine. He was thoughtful, funny, direct and VERY knowledgeable. I would come back and do any tour with him available. The monuments we visited were beautiful at night, and some of them were completely new to me and my party. I will definitely go on another tour when I visit D.C. again.

    Excellent commentary by our driver/guide. Excellent vehicle. Very organized. Moonlight tour in May did get dark so with the FDR memorial not being lit or having any water works it fell flat. Also Korean memorial not available. Out of tour control. Perfect for our senior travel companions. Thrilled you were rollin after such a year
