  • Zohery Tours
    There are plenty of famous landmarks to see in Washington D.C.: the White House. The Lincoln Memorial. Jefferson's vault of pudding. However, more obscure (but just as interesting) sites lie off the beaten path, and Zohery Tours whisks its patrons to many of them. In between stops at the U.S. Capitol Reflecting Pool and the American Red Cross Headquarters, Dr. Zohery introduces visitors to the spots where dignitaries go jogging and politicians take their morning coffee breaks. He also opens their eyes to the cultural aspects of the city, which include seven universities, the National Gallery of Art, and the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts. Regardless of the locale, the guide taps into 25 years of experience hosting D.C. tours, regaling visitors with historical facts and answering questions about the political process.

    For the team at Royal Trolley Tours, the story of our nation's capital never ends. Each day, the trolley bus rumbles out onto the city's streets for fully narrated trips to the US Capitol, the White House, and memorials across D.C. These journeys can take place during three-hour tours in the morning and evening, when the moonlight shimmers in the Mall's reflecting pool and sprouts werewolf hairs on the Lincoln Memorial. Royal Trolley Tours marries comfort and visibility during these tours. While its roof guards against the elements, the window covers easily flip up to let passengers soak in a cool breeze, take photos through the roof, or reach out a hand to catch politicians' falling approval ratings.
