Avoid the stress of renting a car and navigating on your own on this bus tour of Washington DC. A guide provides entertaining historical context, as you pass more than 50 of the city’s iconic landmarks, including the White House, Capitol Building, Lincoln Memorial, and National Mall. Unlike most city bus tours, a small group size ensures you have the guide's full attention for questions and comments.

I was quite disappointed when I saw that the Fountain did not have water during my visit. There were also many homeless men occupying the benches surrounding this Fountain. I quickly took some pictures and hurriedly left!

In winter the fountain is drained - so essentially it is a 'nothing special foundation without water'. If you happen to be passing Du Post Circle look up, otherwise you're not missing much at all!

DC is full of amazing statues and memorials and the like. If this fountain were in a small town it would be the focal point. In DC it is the decoration in the center of a very nice green space tucked into an urban area. Sure it's nice, but it isn't something that I recommend you seek out. Three stars for being average.

My wife and I walked past this enormous fountain in the middle of Dupont Circle. It was extremely ornate and was a nice monument. This area makes a nice place to visit as it is quieter than other areas of Washington and has some great restaurants.

It is one of many fountain in D.C. that is operating and working during summer time. A nice structure in the middle of the circle. The fountain's formal name is the Rear Admiral Samuel Francis DuPont Memorial Fountain has 3 carved with allegorical sculptures round the base. According to the information, it is one of the 18 fountains registered as historic places in the country. During summer, visitors can come and enjoy the fountain and watch chess games.
