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.

Really enjoyed the enthusiasm of our tour director! Being in a small group setting made the tour more intimate and our questions were answered thoroughly. I will definitely schedule another trip on my next visit to DC!
Highlight of our DC trip!

We had a group of four adults and three kids. The tram was running 30 minutes late but it was not their fault as our original tour guide was sick. We appreciated their commitment to keeping their customers safe. The replacement guide was wonderful and informative and we still got the full tour. Our guide even dropped us off at the White House at the end of the tour because it was closer to our hotel. The tram worked perfectly and was more comfortable than we thought it would be. The individual headsets were great because we could all hear the guide perfectly. Awesome sites lit up at night with plenty of time to stop and explore the FDR monument, MLK monument and the Lincoln monument. This tour was the highlight of our trip. Our 13, 12 and 10 year olds loved it too. Highly recommend!!
Night time view is great

Olivia was a great tour guide and gave us lots of fun facts about DC. The tour went by fast and was a great way to see all the highlights of DC and get the lay of the land. Family friendly for teens and tweens and was fun despite inclement weather.
Fun, lots of amazing culture spots and knowledge.

I had an amazing time in this tour, the guide I had was extremely fun and knowledgeable. I wish I had his name but I know he is Cuban… I can’t wait to visit next time with my full family and do it all over again. We visited more spots that I thought it would cover. If I can request him I totally would! Please someone tell me his name!
