About the DC in a Day Tour

There is no better way to get to know DC than by letting us share six hours’ worth of our most intimate knowledge of the city with you. Want to see The Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument? Some fabulous mansions? The infamous Watergate Hotel? Check, check, and check! This DC in a day walking tour ensures you visit the must-sees and includes insider information.

Here’s how it works: we begin in DC’s most vibrant neighborhood, Dupont Circle, and then we take you through Georgetown, Foggy Bottom, the National Mall, the Smithsonian, the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden, Federal Triangle, and Lafayette Park before wrapping things up at America’s most famous residence, The White House. A 30-minute break in the middle gives you time to soak in the information you’ve heard while you chow down and recharge. All along the way, you learn the fascinating history behind each neighborhood we explore, and visit every site that made you want to visit DC in the first place. We tell you all the juicy secrets, too. If something scandalous happened at a site (for example, if it used to be a brothel…) you’re the first to know.

Simply put, DC in a Day™ is the most comprehensive walking tour of Washington, D.C., and you walk away knowing more about the city than most locals.
