Neler yapacaksınız

Join me on a fun-filled jaunt uncovering the intriguing history and controversies behind the famous landmarks along the National Mall and Tidal Basin. (The day tours and night tours cover the same ground). Highlights include visits to the Washington Monument (exterior), Lincoln, MLK, WWII, Korea, & Vietnam Memorials and views of the Jefferson Memorial, White House, Capitol Building, & Smithsonian: I'll reveal how DC's favorite pastime, politics and money, shaped our capital city as it made its dubious rise to prominence. Tour is 2-to-2.5 hours and about 2.5 miles of mostly flat terrain. Bad jokes inc. free of charge.
YOU MAY REQUEST DATES/TIMES YEAR-ROUND. Tour-times are generally scheduled as follows:
DAY: Generally 9:00am-11:30am or 10:00am-12:30am (year-round)
NIGHT: 8:00-10:30pm (MAR 1-OCT 31) and 7:00pm-9:30pm (NOV 1-FEB 28)
For *Private Tours* it is $360 flat-rate for up to 25 guests (contact for details)
Other things to note
Plan ahead to arrive on-time. Whether taking metro/uber/lyft, getting around DC can take longer than expected. I don't recommend driving: parking can be hard & garages tend to close by 11pm. However, you can reserve spaces thru "Spothero" or try street parking on Jefferson Dr, NW or Madison Dr, SW

As a licensed tour guide, airbnb superhost, historian, and amateur comedian living in DC for the past 16 years, I've gained some unique insights into the city. I've held a number of positions from my 1st job here as Presidential Management Fellow at the US State Department to being stablehand at Rock Creek Park Horse Center. Accordingly, I've researched & developed an exciting excursion to share some of the intriguing stories and hidden histories with you that not only reflect our local culture but that of our entire nation: I hope you'll find them as entertaining as they are educational.

Rob was an excellent tour guide. He is knowledgeable of the history and culture of D.C. I had such a great time exploring the monuments at dusk in a small group. Rob was accommodating to me and my two other fellow tour-goers. I have pictures that will definitely be framed from this tour. As a solo female traveler, this is an airbnb experience that is safe, and Rob made certain that my trip back to my hotel was safe as well. I would give 10 stars if I could!

This was a fantastic experience! Rob was personable, funny but not silly, full of great information, enthusiastic, and thoughtful. Our 16 y/o autistic son loved it. It's hard to engage him, but Rob did a wonderful job.

Being from Richmond, VA... I have had SO many field trips to see the same DC monuments.. but, Rob brought the historic structures to life!! The details, the "ah-ha" moments and especially the Laughs we enjoyed were worth every penny of this Airbnb experience! Use your time wisely and book with Rob! You will seriously learn more in about two hours than you learned in 4 years of high school! (Plus, you will be giggling and getting Great photos!) ps. my 10 year old loved it! (bye-bye fortnite! hello, fourscore and seven years ago!!)
