Licensed professional tour guides could tell you about the design plan of the U.S. Capitol, the specifics of the congressional resolution to build the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, and the quotes engraved on the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial. Or, they could show you.
Excellent Tours' four experienced guides share their knowledge of the capital during three narrated tours aboard vans, mini-buses, and coach buses. Each tour includes stops at the White House, Capitol building, Lincoln Memorial, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, which is where the similarities end. Tours run at three different times and visit several different additional sights, such as the Thomas Jefferson Memorial and the World War II Memorial. During each excursion, guides divulge facts such as how President Theodore Roosevelt gave the White House its name in 1901, and why the engineer who laid the cornerstone of the Washington Monument used the same trowel George Washington used nearly a century earlier instead of the nice one his mother bought for him.
On Big Bus Tours' signature hop-on, hop-off double decker adventures, visitors and residents alike can take in all of the sights of the capital city. The distinctive vehicles wind their way through the city, allowing guests to hop-off at landmarks including the Washington Monument, the National Archives, and the Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials. An informative and entertaining commentary enriches each eye-popping location, either from a live tour guide or a recording.
Tammy Belden, the owner and operator of Guides of DC, has lived in DC for more than 40 years, and spent a good amount of that time working on Capitol Hill. She was also the president of the Guild of Professional Tour Guides in Washington, which means she combines her deep knowledge of the area with an aptitude for turning tours into experiences as informative as they are lively and fun. Tammy and her colleagues have curated creative jaunts through DC that spotlight the iconic sites and the stories that surround them. One example is the Monuments by Moonlight tour. This four-hour tour offers a privileged view of sites like the White House, the Lincoln Memorial, and the U.S. Capitol as seen at night, alit by the moon and spotlights and framed by the evening sky and cityscape.
Also of interest is the African American-themed tour, which centers around sites like the Martin Luther King Memorial, African American Civil War Museum, and Frederick Douglass House, as well as eight-hour tours that weave through all the necessary stops—the Smithsonian and Supreme Court, to name a few.
City Segway Tours was born in Paris in 2003. Back then, Segways were still newfangled contraptions that most people hadn't even heard of much less ridden or snared with a lasso. Immediate success followed, and soon, they had their sights set on North America. Today, City Segway Tours has locations parked across the world, including San Francisco, New Orleans, Chicago, and Washington, D.C.
Besides the Segway itself, each tour includes three main components: a guide, a helmet, and an orientation. During the orientation, riders familiarize themselves with their Segways, learning the vehicle's controls and the location of the eject button. At the head of every tour, a friendly, knowledgeable guide leads the way, dishing out facts and historical tidbits while groups buzz past local landmarks. Additionally, tour group sizes are kept small, making for a more intimate experience.
