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.

Book this tour! My boyfriend and I kicked off our trip to DC with Rob’s evening tour and it was the perfect way to start our trip. The monuments’ beauty speaks for itself in the moonlight but Rob fills in all the knowledge, history, and secret quirks that you would never be able to learn about if you were exploring them on your own. This tour is an absolute steal for the price and Rob does everything to make sure you’re comfortable and taken care of along the way. He informs you about each monument and then allots you some time to take it in on your own. I loved every second and would recommend this tour to first time DC visitors and seasoned veterans of the city alike.

Rob was the best. Very entertaining and informative tour of the monuments. We had younger kids and Rob was excellent at including them and customizing the tour for kids and adults so everybody was learning and having fun. Great value, plus you see and learn things that you'd never notice or learn just exploring on your own.

Rob’s tour was great. Rob certainly knows his history and his enthusiasm is contagious! I learned a lot in the 2.5 hours. The other highlight was the wonderful family from Ohio that was part of the group!

Rob was fantastic! He was passionate about his roll as our guide and provided an engaging, entertaining and informative tour. We loved the extras he threw in, such as “Kilroy” at the WW2 Memorial. Great job of giving us time to enjoy the monuments. Would HIGHLY recommend!

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)
