DC By Foot is pleased to present an extension of our original name-you-own-price walking tour of the monuments and memorials of the National Mall in Washington DC! This highly engaging tour will take you through the heart of the National Mall and Tidal Basin, entertaining you and your family with stories, hidden secrets and historical information. Part one is the National Mall Tour, followed by the Tidal Basin Tour. If you’ve taken our National Mall Tour, you know you just don’t want it to stop – and now it doesn’t!
You are welcome to join for only the National Mall Tour portion of the tour. It begins at the same location and time, ending at Lincoln Memorial. If you only wish to attend the Tidal Basin portion of the tour, PLEASE LET US KNOW so we can tell you the best time and place to meet!
