Það sem verður gert

Following COVID precautions: this walk is entirely outdoors, groups are limited to 8 people, and guests are required to wear masks. 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: 8:00pm-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 15 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.

I’ve seen the monuments during the day but wanted to see them at night all lit up. Turns out my husband and I were the only people signed up and essentially had a private tour. Rob was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommend.

Weather was perfect, amount of information was perfect, so glad I booked this tour. I am not a big history buff but knew that my friend was. I enjoyed it as much if not more than him. Rob was funny, told stories that were so interesting and kept the pace up. I highly recommend this tour. I plan to book again in the spring when I am up in DC with another friend of mine who has never been there.
