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 tour. Wanted to go on a night time walking tour and this was perfect. The meetup directions were clear and Rob had a sign so I could easily find him. He had a lot of information and made the tour fun with lots of insider tidbits. Would do this tour again.

Rob was an excellent tour guide. I wasn't sure what to expect as I've never done a guided tour before but my expectations were exceeded. Not only was his knowledge extensive pertaining the monuments, but he had many cool stories to share with the group along the way, including some funny jokes here and there. I appreciate the personable characteristics Rob provided for the tour and would definitely recommend touring with him if you ever have the chance!

Rob was an excellent guide. Full of energy! The tour/hike is a great value. Just wish we had more time towards the end (pace of the hike dragged a little in the beginning and then felt rushed at the end).
