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.

My grandson and I both agree that Rob's tour was the absolutley best part of our week in DC. Rob connected so well with the group, was so knowledgeable, and made the tour relatable to all ages in the group. We did the evening tour which was magical. Don't hesitate! We saw and learned so much but didn't feel rushed. Be prepared to walk. You'll be so glad you chose Rob as your guide!

This was a really interesting tour - we got much more from visiting the monuments with Rob than we would have done on our own. Rob is really friendly, funny and engaging. Highly recommend!

Rob was knowledgeable, welcoming and very funny. We really enjoyed the tour of the monuments at night and we couldn't have planned a more perfect evening weather-wise. We even were treated with a giant full moon. Amazing evening!! Thank you Rob!!!

This was perfect as it made viewing the many memorials and monuments super efficient. We felt like we were in good, knowledgeable hands and appreciated all the added information that we would not have gotten had we toured them on our own. I appreciated the smaller Group size with Rob, as opposed to others we saw on our tour, which had at least double the amount of people. Rob was funny and personable; we could tell That he definitely enjoys what he does. Not overbearing or goofy...just fun, relaxes, and knowledgeable! Great value!

Great way to tour the monuments at night! Rob provided a lot of insight & information at each stop while allowing for personal exploration time. He was extremely personable and offered many great recommendations on what to do with our time in DC. The entire tour was stroller accessible which was a big plus for us! We would definitely recommend to any friends visiting the area.

Fleiri ábendingar

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

Hvað þarf að taka með

1. FULL BOTTLED WATER (drinking-fountains don't always work)

2. Walking-shoes, bug-spray, sunblock, rain-jacket (as needed)
