Bob took us on a 3-hour driving/walking tour of the monuments and it was the highlight of the trip for all 3 generations present. He was so knowledgeable and tailored his information to appeal to all. I can't give enough stars to this operation. We'll definitely do another tour with Bob next time we're in town.

We had a great experience with a tour guide with our teenagers. Amazing to understand the purpose and history of the monuments. Luxury to see the sacrifice paid for our freedom today.

Called at last minute and we were booked for a trip 2 hours later. Johanna was great to us. As others were being herded like cats to buses we were able to make it very customized to what we wanted to see.

This was such a great tour. I highly recommend it for anyone and everyone! Bob, our tour guide, was a wealth of knowledge. We have four children and he was right on target in keeping everyone engaged. We loved everything about it!


Arlington National Cemetery 

You will be led by one of our licensed professional guides, who will take you to well-known points of interest in the cemetery, as well as to places and people not so famous. The climax of the visit will be at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, where you will see the “Changing of the Guard” ceremony. The tour will also include stops at Arlington House (also known as the Custis-Lee Mansion) and the Kennedy grave sites. Along the way, your guide will discuss the history of Arlington, including how it was turned from a plantation into a national cemetery and how it rose to prominence over the years.  In addition, your guide will point out important graves belonging to such figures as the architect of Washington DC, Pierre L’Enfant, the heavyweight boxing champ Joe Louis, and the first African American four-star general, Daniel “Chappie” James, Jr.

Private Tours for Individuals, Couples & Families

Every tour listed on our website is a possibility for individuals, couples, and families, and we can customize any tour to better suit your needs and interests. 


People choose us not only because we offer a wide variety of tours, but also because we are able to skillfully combine elements of our various tours into one personalized itinerary just for you, or for you and your significant other, or your entire family.


Because we only offer private tours, we are flexible in our planning to arrange each itinerary around your other time commitments while in Washington such as conferences, congressional appointments or hearings, weddings, or funerals. When you consider the fact we pick up and drop off at your hotel or any location and at the time that works best for you, our tours are both cost-effective and time-efficient. The memories of your experience seeing DC on one of our private tours will last a lifetime. 


We are able to set up a short highlights tour that introduces you to DC, such as our Welcome to Washington Tour or our DC at Night tour, or something more elaborate such as full-day and multi-day tours where your options are many. 

For example, couples might like to have a bottle of wine in the vehicle to go with their night tour. Perhaps your family would like to venture out to Gettysburg and learn about Civil War history or go to Mount Vernon, the home of George Washington.


All of our professional tour guides are very knowledgeable and entertaining. While each guide has his or her own style and personality, they are all great with families of all ages, kids and seniors included. 

The minimum time that must be booked is 3 hours (with a sedan or SUV) but Sprinters and limos have a 4-hour minimum charge.
