Það sem verður gert

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.

DAY: Generally 9:00am-11:30am or 10:00am-12:30am (year-round)
NIGHT: 8:00-10:30pm (MAR 1-AUG 31) and 7:00pm-9:30pm (SEP 1-FEB 28)

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 a great tour guide! We had originally planned to do a night Monumental History Hike. Rob was kind enough to give us options when a family wanted to expand their guest list. He asked if it was okay to add more or we could switch to Sunday morning. We decided to switch our time to Sunday and I'm so glad we did. Rob sent us a list of ideas for parking and I appreciate the photo for our meet up place. We showed up an hour early to find parking but still messed that up and we were 10 minutes late. Rob was kind enough to hang around the area so we could join the hike. It was funny to see the other 5 guests waving at us to join them on the hill. We were afraid of the pace of a 2.5hr tour but Rob make it a fun a leisurely walk. The pauses at each spot to allow us time to explore was so nice, too. Fun, engaging and informative! We highly recommend this hike and well worth the $$.

We had a great tour with Rob - learned a lot & laughed a lot. It was a great way to familiarize ourselves with the monuments at the beginning of our trip. Rob is extremely knowledgeable and engaging.

We really enjoyed our tour. Rob was knowledgable, easy to talk to and shared amazing lesser known stories about the city and monuments. We came out with a bigger love for the city because of all those gold nuggets Rob shared with us!!!

Rob is funny and natural. He kept the excursion very manageable after our long day of sightseeing. It was a most helpful and interesting South mall tour around the Washington memorial, WWII, Vietnam vet, Lincoln, Korean, MLK, & cherry blossom-Jefferson tidal basin. Rob was on time throughout and looked out for our safety. If I should return with my history loving husband we will book again. Rob was great!!!

The night tour with Rob was a pleasure! He was full of unique insights & stories that kept the group engaged throughout the whole hike. This was my first trip to DC, so I was looking for a more guided approach to visiting the monuments. I would highly recommend the night tour because the monuments were less crowded, & many of the monuments felt more impactful in the dark. Without all the distractions of the daytime, I felt I could better connect with each location. Thanks again Rob for the incredible experience!
