    We all had a wonderful time on the moonlight tour!! The monument/memorials were even more beautiful at night and this was such an efficient way to see them all! Catherine was a fantastic tour guide - she shared interesting details and history on each monument/memorial we visited and gave us a good amount of time at each to walk around, take pictures, etc. She regularly checked in to make sure we were all comfortable and could hear her well. Highly recommend! Highlight of our trip!

    Totally Brilliant!! I expected the tour to be canceled due to bad weather and was even more surprised when I found I was the only guest - but guess what? They still ran the tour - My guide Kevin was brilliant and very knowledgable and my tour was even more special - despite the rain! The monuments at night is definitely worth seeing and I'm very glad I did this first! Thank you
