A perfect picturesque view of our Capitol and reflecting pond. It certainly makes one feel proud to be an American.

This was a great tour and you get to see so many historic sites in one place. Do not be deceived by the size of the monuments/buildings and think that they are close together. A round trip around the mall is around 3 miles, so bring your walking shoes. We did take a segway tour one day and that was much fun and a quicker way to get around. Very historical and worth the visit.

Being on the mall you get perspective for all the sites you see on TV. It is a lovely walk (about 2.5 hours around at a stroll). Sometimes there are groups meeting or exhibits which are cool to see. Sometimes there are bands playing at the Lincoln Memorial as well (that happened while we were there.)

There is some food in some of the museums no food on the mall itself.

This whole mall area is fantastic. I'm glad we had a tour. There is a lot of walking to be done, so being able to get back on a tour bus in between these stops is very helpful. Loved it. Would do a tour every time I come to DC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for everything.

Started off at the White House then down to Lincoln Memorial, across to Arlington (very touching memorial to the fallen), back to the Vietnam & Korean Memorial then WW2 Memorial then Thomas Jefferson Memorial to Washington Monument. Great photo opportunities for places I've always wanted to see. Fantastic place
