What you can expect

See the amazing monuments of the nation’s capital lit by the glorious sunset and the spotlights that come on after dark. And do it all from the back of a green and orange trolley.

Board the waiting trolley as the sun sinks in the west. As you drive past the memorials of D.C., the sunset bathes them in its red and yellow glow, and their shadows grow slowly longer. Seeing the impressive Thomas Jefferson Memorial and Vietnam Memorial at twilight adds power to their commemorative message.

When the sun is gone, the spotlights come on to illuminate the city’s famous buildings. Now you see the grand buildings of the Capitol and White House lit up and towering above the city. Their structures stand out against the night sky in all their glory.

Through everything, your guide tells you historical facts about these landmarks, as well as some amusing anecdotes and spooky ghost stories.

It's one beautiful site after another until your trolley pulls back into Union Square.
