Wonderful experience with family touring the memorials with our wonderful guide Rebecca. We started at the Washington Monument and finished at the Lincoln Memorial. Rebecca had great historical information on all of our stops. Tour lasted about 2 hours. Would recommend to everyone.

They offer many different walking tours. I went on the tour of the National Mall with Rebecca who was very informative and a lot of fun. You pay what you want at the end of the tour.
