Exploring the capital's iconic monuments is one of the main bucket-list items for any Washington, D.C. visit. Allow us to make it easy for you by combining all of the best and most sought-after sites into this fun and informative half-day tour.
Starting at our centrally located office, we will make our way along the National Mall, stopping to highlight some of the most beautiful landmarks along this famous stretch. From there, we will continue on to the Tidal Basin where you can get up close and personal with famous memorials such as the World War II Memorial, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, and the Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial among many others. This tour is the perfect way to learn about the history of these iconic sites while having fun and getting oriented with Washington, D.C.
If you're planning on visiting Arlington Cemetery during your trip to DC, this tour is a great precursor. You will learn about the events that led to the creation of these monuments and walk away with an even greater appreciation for the men and woman that served our country through the armed forces, political & social movements, and government. We hope that you'll join us!
