"Night Monument Visit With Vernon"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed April 20, 2019 NEW
With most museums in DC closing at 5-5:30 this is a great way to extend what you can pack into your visit. There are so many things to do and see in DC having the opportunity to see the monuments with an informative guide was great. We had Vernon as our guide who was informative as we saw WWII, Korean, Vietnam, Jefferson, Lincoln, memorials as well as some pics outside White House. Vernon was also very nice engaging my 8 year old son which my wife and I appreciated as it made the experience nice for him.

This tour cost $89.00 Wasn't worth the price. Everything included in the tour was free. Didn't include transport back to hotel which was a 14 block walk from last stop of tour. Guide didn't assist guests off bus. Basically paid for narrative and transport for 3 hours. One of sites wasn't even open.
