The three-hour evening tour focuses on destinations that are beautifully lit at night, including the Lincoln Memorial and Pentagon Memorial. The five-hour, full-day tour covers more ground, stopping at Arlington Cemetery, the White House, U.S. Capitol, and the memorials of FDR and Martin Luther King, Jr. A tour guide chauffeurs groups to each destination in a 6-person minivan or SUV, so depending on the size of the group, the tour may be private or semi-private. The daytime tours are from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and the evening tours are from 7–10 p.m.
ELD Touring Enterprises
Touring Washington D.C. can get tiring very quickly, whether because of trying to cover its expansive acreage on foot or in a bus crowded with an exorbitant amount of passengers. ELD Touring Enterprises opts for a less weary mode of transportation, as guides chauffeur groups of six people around the city in minivans and SUVs. This makes each tour private or semi-private, giving sightseers more intimate access to the destinations they're exploring. Longer daytime tours hit many of the major destinations, including Arlington Cemetery and the White House, while evening tours are reserved for those landmarks that are dramatically lit at night, such as the Lincoln Memorial or Teddy Roosevelt's hot tub. Groups can also opt for themed tours, such as an African-American history tour, or work with ELD guides to come up with a custom route.
