What To Expect

Meet your guide and group at the designated meeting point for your early evening departure, then make your way to the grounds of the United States Capitol. Follow the Presidential Inauguration route down Pennsylvania Avenue to the White House, where you can take in the north side of the building and Lafayette Park, and continue to the Treasury Building, the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, and the Blair House.

Visit the World War II Memorial, then travel on foot to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, set at the edge of the Tidal Basin. This is the perfect spot to snap a photo of the Jefferson Memorial across the water. Tour the Korean War Veterans Memorial, and walk up the steps of the Lincoln Memorial for views back towards the US Capitol.

Make the final stop of the night at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial—your guide can assist in finding a name on the wall, as you hear the individual stories behind the war. This tour concludes at the Vietnam Memorial, close to public transport and National Mall sites.

Isabella_S, Mar 2023
I had the most perfect evening with our guide - Corey and all the the other tourists in our group. Each individual stop was perfect timing. Lucky to be here during cherry blossom peak blooming. Corey was very knowledgeable and able to answer all my questions (I asked a lot :)). The significance of each memorial greatly enhanced with Corey's information.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Hi Isabella- you had perfect timing! The Cherry Blossom bloom date is a closely guarded secret known only by Mother Nature. Corey is a native of DC and loves to share his hometown with our guests! Thanks for choosing us!

The World war ll memorial and the names of all fallen soldiers… our heroes was solemn. The whole tour was just amazing. My family also loved Mercy, Faith and Hope at the Vietnam Memorial.
