My family is going to DC this October. We're two adults, and 2 kids (12 and 9).
I would like to spend one night doing a nighttime monuments tour. There seem to be a lot of them available. Has anyone done one of these? Any recommendations (or tour companies to avoid)?
I've also seen a couple that offer a hop-on/hop-off bus tour during the day, and kick in a set nighttime tour. Anybody have experience with that?
I'm interested in the monuments on the mall and nearby (Lincoln, Jefferson, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, MLK, FDR, Korean War), as well as the Iwo Jima memorial. I would like to be able to spend a little time at each, without feeling rushed to get back on the bus, or whatever.
I also don't want to spend a fortune. Is this an impossible dream?
