The Capitol, National Mall and the White House with private guide


See the Most Famous Places -- the Capitol, the White House, the Lincoln/Jefferson/World War II Memorials, the Smithsonian Museums -- and the smaller monuments between them. Take those photos you need to show all your relatives back home that you really came here! We'll use a combination of walking, Metro (subway) and perhaps taxi if you become tired.

This is a shorter (or longer) version of the other Introductory Tours; six hours has proven to be a comfortable walking time for many travellers and allows us to get inside some places.

Itinerary

Typically: (most outside, some enter) US Capitol, Supreme Court, Library of Congress, National Mall and Smithsonian museums, White House, Washington Monument, World War II/Vietnam War/Korean War Memorials, Lincoln/Jefferson Memorials; if time permits, walk through The Castle (the original Smithsonian building) and visit the beautiful Peacock Room. Some sites we will visit, some see from a distance, depending on time and energy.

We will be sure that when you are done you have a good idea of the layout of the city, where the museums or other places you plan to visit later are, and how to use the DC transportation system. And I'll give you a map!

A Recent Review of this tour

Special trip for my 13 year old granddaughter. Wanted to see as many monuments as possible, the Capital, and Whitehouse. Unfortunately had rain all day. Hayden truly saved the day. He adjusted the schedule to get us as much outside time as possible given the weather. We were out in the rain a bit and then back in a museum. His ability to relate to my daughter was nothing short of outstanding. His knowledge of the District as well as history also amazing. I would most definitely recommend him.
