We went for the exercise and that's what we got. It was a nice leisurely pace. My only disapointment was that our guide was relatively new and therefore could not answer many questions.

I enjoyed the tour but would have preferred that it start an hour later so we could actually see most of the monuments by moonlight.

This event was very informative, I really enjoyed the tour and would suggest it to anyone visiting or living here in the Washington DC area.

Thanks to the tour guide.

It was really hot the evening we took the walk, but our knowledgeable guide kept the pace reasonable. I learned some things, especially about the lesser known monuments. It was certainly worth doing.

It was ok, however I took a free tour offered by the US Park Service that provided more information and was wonderful. I'd already signed up for this event had I known I would not have signed up and strongly recommend checking with the park...continued

We had a pleasant, informed guide who did a good job of reading the group in terms of time needed at the various monuments. In addtion, I learned some new anecdotes about the monuments!

We were frustrated, and annoyed, that the information provided the day before from their office staff was inaccurate. We were told that the tour would take 2 hours (it was 3 as advertised on your web site so we made dinner reservations that we...continued

I brought six (6) tickets for family members and friends and we all enjoyed the walk very much. I look forward to many more events.

It was a very small group, so we were able to easily hear everything the guide said. We were also able to interact with the guide and with the other participants, as well as get up close to everything. The guide was very knowledgeable and...continued

It was a beautiful night and this was a great slow paced walking tour. the FDR Memorial was stunning at night and the tour guide made if fun and educational to be with Company D. I would highly recommend it for families (with older kids) and adults.

Did not enjoy this tour at all, you need to get somebody who actually knows the history of the tour instead of giving us what the tour's perception was, boringggggggggggggggg Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Moonlight walking tour around the tidal basin was really good. Very steamy but extremely interesting and the views of DC at that time of the night are spectacular. Recommend this tour and will look to do similar tours when the heat eases a little

Our young guide was on-time and was friendly and pleasant. However, I felt that the tour was interesting, very light in depth - not much more than I would have gotten by reading the signs and walking along myself. This tour had a lot of long...continued

As a local, I had never really been on a formal tour, so I was eager to learn new tidbits about DC and the monuments, and I wasn't disappointed. Our tour guide was chock-full of information, easily answered our questions and kept the almost...continued

I've lived in DC for 16 years and have seen all of these monuments numerous times. I've listened to Rangers and other tour guides describe them, but this 2 hour walk was easily the most pleasant and enjoyable tour I've ever had.

Our guide was...continued
