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.

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!

Rob was personable, funny, and courteous. My wife and I enjoyed our time with him - especially when he made sure to show us lesser known facts about different monuments. He also had a good balance of providing knowledge while also letting us explore on our own. I would highly recommend the evening tour!

Rob did a super job coordinating my experience! I had previously booked with him in March, when I was going to be in DC for the Cherry Blossoms, pre-Covid. He was super professional, kind and understanding and helped me get a refund. When I ended up back in DC, over the summer, I contacted him about re-booking. When Airbnn experiences were allowed again, he contacted me and I happily booked with him. The tour was great and Rob knows something very cool, unknown details about the Monuments on The National Mall! Rob’s tour is a must when coming to DC! He gave lots of tips on other areas of the city to see! Thanks Rob! And well done with the tour in this new era. Thanks MUCH!

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)
