When the sun sets, the monuments and memorials of Washington DC are illuminated. Experience the stunning architecture of DC as you uncover its rich political history. On your private tour of the Capital’s monuments at night, you will:
- Be accompanied by a private tour guide throughout your tour. - See the best of the monuments, when the people have largely left, and each monument is lit up to best display itself. - See the iconic Washington Monument looming over the city. - Experience the moving monuments of the Korean Veterans Memorial, Vietnam Memorial, and World War II Memorial. - Stand in awe of the immensity of The Lincoln Memorial, and stand on its steps, gazing out over the city. Washington DC is ideal to explore after sunset when crowds disperse and buildings light up. On this tour, you will explore the most important national memorials of America's capital, as you understand their place in the country's history. Not only will you uncover the monuments dedicated to historical figures such as George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, but you will also have the chance to commemorate Vietnam and Korean veterans, as well as those lost during World War II. Throughout your walking tour, your guide will tell you stories about the circumstances around how the National Mall was built over the centuries - from Dolly Madison and Eliza Hamilton's efforts to build the Washington Monument to then 21-year-old Maya Lin's design of the Vietnam Memorial.
