There are walking tours and there are bus tours, but this unique eCruiser tour provides an entirely new perspective on the city of Washington, DC and its many famous landmark locations by the light of night. 

Meet the guide and the rest of the small-group at 12th and Independence Ave. SW, the Smithsonian Metro Stop at the base of the Department of Agriculture Building. Then climb aboard a nifty eCruiser vehicle — an open-air, eco-friendly electric cart that offers as much in style as it does with substance. 

See the Washington Monument lit up for the evening; the Thomas Jefferson and Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorials, illuminated by indirect lighting from the Tidal Basin; the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial, featuring cascading waterfalls and scenic sculptures; and the National World War I and World War II Memorials, with a spectacular fountain display.

There’s also the Lincoln Memorial, the Korean War Veterans Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the White House, Capitol Hill and the world-famous dome of the United States Capitol, plus the United States Supreme Court Building and the Library of Congress. Along the way, hear the historic stories and facts that make the city of Washington, DC one of the most popular tourist destinations in the United States.

Two thumbs DOWN
, Oct 2021
Didn’t have any photo opportunities at the White House, tour guide doesn’t get off and go with you to the sites. Overall the experience was underwhelming. Even the family who accompanied us asked if the Whitehouse was accesible? Really!?!? How can you do a guided tour in DC and not take us to get a close up picture at White House? Don’t hold a night tour and take your people to places that you can NOT see in the dark. Then blame it on a 13 billion dollar Maintenance deficit the city has…

First when I booked the evening tour I was told we would be on the tour just with my family. That wasn’t what happened. Second we were not told the correct information on our reservation where to meet the car. The address written was not clear. Also no clear message was given to us for 2 tours. Name of group, clear information was not properly provided for us. When you book with another tour group make sure to include clear information
Fact-packed night!

Loved the experience, it was a chilly night yet super fun. We were told a lot of fun facts about museums and landmarks. Definitely would recommend!
A bit pricey
, Sep 2021
1. Cameron was very personable. Enjoyed his friendliness 2. Liked the small size of the group 3. Would have liked to go a bit slower by places like the air & space museum. We were told to look between construction but there wasn't much time. 4. Phrases like: 'I don't know about that,' I don't like him very much,' 'I don't know why' were said too much. Enjoyed when Cameron said, "I'm from Massachusetts so I really like..." 5. Wish there had been more spots to stop and take photos 6. We drove by all the white Covid flags without any mention of them. Slowing down and pointing them out would be great. 7. Water and bathroom breaks would be appreciated 8. Would have liked map of the route 9. Wish the Korean War and Iwo Jima memorials were on the tour We did enjoy the tour but it was a bit pricey. And it felt more like a tour of Cameron's personal likes and dislikes. We would suggest sticking with facts and interesting information.
