Half-Day Grand Tour of Washington DC

106 reviews
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.

This House was one of the headquarters of the National Women's Party, which was instrumental in getting the 19th Amendment passed, securing women the right to vote. It was designated a National Monument just four years ago and the NPS is working to renovate the House and add more to the site. Currently, there are two floors of exhibits and information on the suffrage movement, including banners and placards from protests and desks and chairs owned by key leaders of the movement. You can view all the exhibits in under one hour. I did not arrive at the right time for a tour, but think it would be helpful to take one, especially if you are unfamiliar with the history.

Remarkable history. Good introductory video but I wasn’t offered a tour. Exhibits are kind of visually overwhelming.

Despite being so close to the National Mall, this site does not apparently get many visitors. I showed up a couple of minutes late for the 1st scheduled tour, but since I was the only one there, I got a one-on-one tour. Interesting history, with many signs/posters/exhibits detailing the history of women's suffrage and struggle for equal rights.

I really enjoyed my guided tour at this national monument and learned a lot about the early history of the women's rights movement. Our park ranger was clearly knowledgeable and conveyed her love of history. The house itself was larger and more impressive than I had expected. It turns out that it can also be rented for private events.

Tells the story of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote in federal elections. Takes about an hour. Definitely worth doing, and kids can earn a junior ranger badge at this NPS run site.
