NIGHT TOURS OF DC
Some cities are meant to be seen by day and others at night. Washington, DC is one of the rare cities that need to be seen at both times of the day.
Most museums are closed at nightfall, so there are still plenty of hours in the day to explore the city, the monuments, and memorials. Especially the darker side.
In addition to our night walking tours (see below the video), there are also bus, boat, bike, and Segway tours of the nation's capital city.
We offer many nighttime tour options - some are family-friendly and some are adults only!
As always, check our tour calendar to see which walks are taking place when you are in the city.
Regularly Scheduled Night Tours

- Lincoln Assassination Tour
