Mitä teet

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: 8:00-10:30pm (MAR 1-AUG 31) and 7:00pm-9:30pm (SEP 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 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.

Great experience, I've seen the monuments before during the day while hanging out with family and friends...but,this was a real treat to see them at night and hear all of the interesting historical facts about them and the famous people behind them that helped shape our country. Very insightful and enjoyable, Rob truly made learning about history fun with all of his stories and jokes. The time really flew by,would definitely recommend if you like to walk and learn.

Rob was a wonderful tour guide. He is knowledgeable and thoughtful. He gave us a lot of information, but he also have us time to digest it and explore certain areas. He engaged everyone about their lives and experiences while sharing some of his personal life. He seems to be a person that loves absorbing new information and sharing it with everyone.

Me and my extended family met up with Rob for the evening tour of the monuments and it was really great. Rob gives you some cool information about the monuments and gives you time to wander through them on your own before moving on. He shares really interesting facts that you wouldn't otherwise know and helps contextualize the monuments. My family really loved it, we were all glad we did it and everyone voted: WORTH IT:-)

We can’t say enough good! Touring with Rob was an amazing experience. He has excellent stories and facts about all of the monuments and even just fun tidbits of information about DC in general. The tour was easy to follow and a ton of fun! We highly recommend!!
