Description

from Washington DC Unveiled
Ready to take on the busiest area in DC? Skip the crowded sidewalks and slide into our all-electric Red Roadsters to be guided around our nation’s capital by a local.

Our National Mall tour will start at the L’Enfant Plaza metro, where our guides will take you back to the city’s origins and give you some tips for exploring the city on your own. You’ll work your way through the Smithsonian area, discussing the best exhibits in each. Make sure you bring a notebook because you’ll want to take notes for later!

Next, breeze past the Washington Monument, Holocaust Museum, and Bureau of Engraving and Printing on your way to our beautiful Tidal Basin, where you’ll be entertained with the stories behind the watery oasis and the Jefferson Memorial.

You’ll also have the opportunity to hop out and explore on your own! We’ll do that at two stops: the FDR and MLK memorials, as well as at the Lincoln memorial. At both locations you’ll head out on foot with tips and insider information from our guide, and you’ll be able to spend some time inside these amazing memorials. Afterwards, you’ll cruise along the scenic Potomac River with views of Arlington Cemetery before seeing the World War I and World War II memorials.

Continue your journey through American history with a drive past the White House. Finally, feast your eyes on the buildings of Capitol Hill and learn the history behind the Capitol Building, Supreme Court, and Library of Congress. End your tour on a high note by asking your guide for an amazing spot for lunch before exploring the rest of DC on your own.

My wife organised this tour through our travel company and they had recommended it. We had Julia as our guide. Collection was simple and timely from the pre-arranged meet point. Julia was great, super knowledgeable about the history and with additional fun facts relating to movies and tv shows shot in and around the DC area which kept us amused. Well worth doing, especially if you don’t have a lot of time in the area.

"DC Craft Cocktail Tour"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed February 20, 2019 NEW
First of all, my bad I guess for not noticing the fine print about the 2 1/2 hour tour only including the first cocktail. However, if you’re charging $94 per person that should include a drink in each bar! The tour is basically a circle around the Verizon center into 3 bars and did NOT go into any hip speak easys where cocktails are $20+ Our tour guide was a sweet young lady but after the first 5 minutes she didn’t say much about DC and prohibition or anything historically interesting about bars or cocktails in the area. The first bar, sort of a sports bar, we got a cocktail making demonstration and the one cocktail. Then to a crowded bar, with no reservation and had to wait 1/2 hour to order a drink. The last bar was in a hotel where we may have had a reserved section and they treated us to a glass of homemade bubbly because I complained about the value of the tour. This could have been an historically really interesting tour if planned out better and with a knowledgeable guide. So, don’t waste your money! Read reviews on bars in DC and make your own reservations. The owners of Urban Adventures should go on tours with companies that do it right to learn how to organize a good city tour. I recommend Paris or London City Walks. Urban Adventures got enough money out of the 6 of us to pay for the airfare over there!

I was the only guest for my experience in Adams Morgan. Nima, my guide, has very well adapted the tour to my diet. We had a great time and he also gave me good directions for the rest of my trip. To mix food and history made the tour very interesting. Thank you for this moment !
