Wat je gaat doen

We'll begin our tour in the heart of historic Washington, and imagine a time when the beautiful old buildings here were new. We'll hear the curious story of the architect of America's capital, then stroll to the National Mall, where more than 200 years of history unfolds right in front of us... truly an awesome place (especially around sunset)!

To expedite things a little, and save some wear and tear on our feet, we may take a short bus hop for part of the tour. Endless photo opps lead us along the National Mall's tree-lined pathways past all the great memorials and monuments, each with their own unique stories, from quirky to serious.

We go at an easy pace and linger where time allows, before ending the tour near Lincoln Memorial or Washington Monument. You can hail a taxi or rideshare there, or if you prefer, I can walk you to a Metro station or back to the Navy Memorial and Old Downtown, where many great restaurants and coffee shops await.
Other things to note
Watch the forecast and dress accordingly. There are coffee shops close to the Navy Memorial in case you arrive early. Expect lots of easy walking, with short rest breaks at each major memorial.

Kenneth was an excellent guide. This truly is the best way to see the monuments and memorials in DC! If you tour with Kenneth, you will hit the majority of them in one swoop! Kenneth was incredibly kind and even let us "take the long way" around so that we could get a few more memorials in. The memorials are simply exquisite at night. The perks of Kenneth's tour is that they are small in number so you have ample time to ask all the questions you'd like and they can be tailored to your groups interest.

Book this tour! This tour is really special thanks to Kenneth. He provides a lot of special background about the many many monuments that are part of this tour. I wouldn’t have appreciated it as much without knowing why special things were included with a monument, or why things were done in a specific way. Everything is well organized and I appreciated his insight and knowledge.
