Washington, D.C. Monuments and Memorials Walking Tour

Join us for a casual stroll through our National Mall's most treasured sites. You and your expert guide will visit the best of the memorials and monuments on the Nation's Front Lawn. Get inspired at the Lincoln, Jefferson, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorials and honor the sacrifice of our country's heroes at the Vietnam Veteran's, Korean War, and World War II Memorials.

Along the way, your guide will tell you all about the great history, anecdotes, and urban legends that each site has to tell. During the warmer months, this tour is a can't-miss as we walk the National Mall at sunset. You'll see the sites come alive in a whole new way as they illuminate over the course of the tour. During the Cherry Blossom Festival, this is a perfect way to take in all the can't-miss memorials along the National Mall, while visiting Washington's famous Cherry Trees.

NOTE: During the Cherry Blossom season, we can't guarantee when the blossoms will make their appearance every year, but we schedule the tour around Peak Bloom in late-March, early April. Tours outside these dates will not encounter any Cherry Blossoms.
