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.

Howard University was established in 1868, specifically to offer opportunities for African American citizens. Today Howard is a major research institution, known for its fine medical school and hospital. This urban campus has an interesting mixture of 19th and early 20th century brick and limestone architecture, and contemporary buildings of steel and glass.

Howard is with out doubt one of the jewels of Washington DC. Howard is a historcal university that has educated some of the most successful Black Americans in the country. The campus is wonderful and do stop by the bookstore and by yourself or a family member some swag! Howard University is an excellent option for deep learning and fellowship with the future of America!

Such a pleasure and honor visiting this grand, historic HBCU. Beautiful architecture. I visited the area around the school over 10 years and the change is phenomenal - well done to those that have assisted in redeveloping the area around this historic school! I was able to walk through the campus and visit some of the historic sites (DST proud!) and also visited the bookstore, which is plentiful with souvenir items. Would definitely visit again!
