We meet at Starbucks - 11th & H Street NW in front of the Grand Hyatt - 1000 H Street NW.

This activity will end right where it started.
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.

Dustin was a great tour guide - very knowledgeable about historic details and related anecdotes; kept the group on schedule, even if it meant getting out of the van to get other tour busses to move out of the way. Great way to see sites and monuments from a new perspective, even for those who might already be familiar with them.

We had a fantastic time on our tour with Judy. Her lively commentary brought things to life, and the stops were all fascinating. We were fortunate that we had perfect weather, which enhanced it all the more! Taking a small group tour is definitely the way to go, we could park close to all of the monuments and had the privilege to view the capitol building as the final stop,
