A Full Day walking tour in Washington DC

During this tour we are going to see how United States startrd from their fundamental documents: Constitution, Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence, all preserved in the National Archives. Out of these documents the three branches of the government equal but separate, Legislative (Capitol building), Judicial (Supreme Court) and Executive (White House) are the one that protect and defend our democracy. At the National Mall we can see the history of our country during the last 200 years. And at the end, the United States is a country where we respect our soldiers, and they have their own reserved secret land at Arlington National Cemetery.

A Recent Review of this tour

Rafael was the best! He interacted with our 10 year old grandson and made it very interesting for both him and us. When back in DC we will request him for a tour. He also recommended a great restaurant for us to have dinner and a donut shop.
