This was an excellent overview of what the National Mall has to offer in terms of the monuments and attractions. The information shared was insightful and can inform what you choose to explore later in more detail.

We had the most amazing, educational and moving Guided Night Bike Monuments Tour with our guide Joe. He was so kind, informative, witty, friendly and insightful. We highly recommend Joe as a tour guide.

Anna Marie was knowledgeable and interesting. The sites were absolutely beautiful. I would recommend to anyone wanting to get a great orientation of the area.

Great explanation done by the driver. Lighting around FDR and MLK Memorials is very poor so be aware of where you are walking.

Fun and educational. It was a quick way to check out all of the major monuments without the hassle of navigating and parking.
