DC At Dusk Night Tour

1,974 reviews
See Washington DC lit up at night on this guided mini-bus tour. Drive by and stop at some of the city’s top memorials and attractions, including the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the Marine Corps War Memorial, and the Lincoln Memorial, which are usually less crowded after dark. With transportation and navigation taken care of, all you have to do is sit back, relax, and sightsee.

Ford's Theatre is one place I am so glad I decided to go to! As a historian, this is one place that has always been on my bucket list and out of the many times I've been to DC, only once have I been able to go, but I would love to go again! It has an incredible history and our tour guide was awesome!

It's amazing to get this close to history. Even with current restrictions, being able to visit this place is a great experience. The museum contains some stunning artifacts that I wasn't aware were there. Visit Ford's Theatre--you won't be disappointed!

Spent the morning at Fords Theater and saw the box where Abraham Lincoln was shot and the stage onto which John Wilkes Booth jumped afterward. Also went to the house across the street and saw the room in which he died. A little disappointed that the interior was a recreation rather than original, but it was done extremely well.

Thanks for visiting Ford's Theatre during your D.C. visit. If you'd like additional information on the building's history from its humble beginnings as a Baptist church, to what happened after Abraham Lincoln's assassination, to its current legacy as a working theatre, museum and national historical landmark, learn more on the Ford's blog: https://www.fords.org/blog/post/new-book-images-of-america-fords-theatre.

My son is a big fan of Lincoln. Just seeing the gun Booth used was a facanating experience. I recommend this to anyone who loves history.

This was definitely one of the highlights from our trip. I couldn't imagine not stopping at Fords theater while in D.C. The story that was told was very interesting and informative. I wish the tour went into a little more detail but it seems that there are other walking tours that may tell more of the story. Don't skip out on the museum across the street its very informative as well.
