Following COVID precautions, this walk is entirely outdoors with groups of 8 people or less (inc. kids): 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.

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 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!

Rob gave an awesome tour. We live in DC and we still learned a lot of new things and saw new places. Rob is an excellent storyteller and made all the sites and monuments come to life. Highly recommend taking this tour!

Fler tips

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

Vad man ska ha med sig

1. FULL BOTTLED WATER (drinking-fountains don't always work)

2. Walking-shoes, bug-spray, sunblock, rain-jacket (as needed)
