Make your way to a centrally-located point in Washington, DC, where you’ll meet a guide for a private walking tour of key city sites. Hear stories about presidents, soldiers, and Americans of the past as you take in monuments and explore the landmarks surrounding the National Mall.

Climb the steps of the Lincoln Memorial for evening views across the reflecting pool, and read some of the 58,195 names that line the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial. Learn the history of the Washington Monument—evening is a dramatic time to photograph the towering obelisk—then continue to the Korean War Veterans Memorial, just south of the reflecting pool.

Pay your respects at the National World War II Memorial, where each of 4,048 stars represents 100 fallen soldiers, then walk to the White House to see the President's home illuminated after sunset. Your tour concludes in central Washington, DC, close to sights, attractions, and public transit.
