This walking tour with a very knowledgeable guide was well worth it or we would have roamed aimlessly. He got us to the changing of the guard with front row viewing at the Tomb of the Unknown soldier and we were honored enough to see two wreathe presentations. Thank you Gary! He then told us how to take the metro and move on to the Iwo Jima statue.

What You'll Get

A sobering reminder of the realities of war, the Arlington National Cemetery is a beautiful tribute to over 400,000 service members and their families buried there. Learn about the more famous tombs, like those of President John F. Kennedy or of military genius General William Sheridan. We’ll even explore a few surprising graves, like that of famed boxer Joe Louis. The cemetery is even home to memorials commemorating the disasters of space shuttles Columbia and Challenger.

Along with a few carefully selected residents like Audie Murphy , your engaging guide will take you to the Tomb of the Unknowns where you may even witness a Changing of the Guard ceremony. Walk these hallowed grounds to learn how the home of Robert E. Lee, whose Arlington House we’ll visit, became one of the country’s largest national cemeteries.

Highlights of the tour generally include: 

• Grave of Joe Louis
• Arlington House, home of Robert E. Lee
• Tomb of the Unknowns
• Mast of the U.S.S. Maine
• Grave of Audie Murphy
• Gravesite of John F. Kennedy
• Memorials to the Space Shuttles Columbia and Challenger
