Co będziecie robić

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.

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)

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.

Wow. Really great tour! Rob was wonderful, perfect amount of facts, humor, and interesting stories you won’t find in history books. We loved the night tour, really cool to see everything lit up and crowds were much lighter than the day. I absolutely suggest this tour!

In my opinion, the best time to see the monuments are at night! The way they are lighten up, makes them stand out even more and you don’t have to fight the crowds for the perfect photo op! Rob made the tour interesting with his stories and his passion on DC and US history. He was very knowledgeable about the area and shared lots of fun facts and jokes along the way. Growing up in the DMV, I was pleasantly surprise on how much I learned. Rob work with us on the pace of the tour, so we didn’t feel rushed or hurried along. He also came prepared with rain ponchos, which we fortunately didn’t have to use. The walk was very manageable, and didn’t seem overwhelming even after a full day of exploring the near by museums. I would definitely recommend doing the walking tour instead of the bus tours, it gives you a better sense of where you are in the city and the scale of it.

Rob was amazing! He was incredibly knowledgeable about D.C., and its long history and his dad jokes were hilarious. I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a great way to explore the city and its history behind.

A wonderful tour with a great guide! If you haven't been to DC before, this is a great starting point before you start discovering the region around the National Mall on your own. Highly recommended!

On our visit to DC we wanted to check out the sites along the Mall and didn’t want to do a tour bus, so we booked Rob’s tour. We had a really small group so it was a really engaging experience almost as if it was a private tour. The pace of the tour was nice and easy and we had plenty of time to explore a few of the key monuments. Overall it was a great experience and would highly recommend it for anyone’s future visit to the city.
