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.
Our adventure takes us on a circular loop starting at the Washington Monument exploring the landmarks along the National Mall & Tidal Basin inc. WWII, Lincoln, Vietnam, Korean, MLK memorials with views/commentary of Jefferson Memorial, White House, Capital, Smithsonian & other sites on the way! Closest metro: Smithsonian (orange, blue, silver lines).

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
