DC Walkabout is relatively new in town and I'm excited to let you know that they offer several free, tip-based walking tours of DC! Grab your comfy shoes and head on out to one of these tours this weekend! Learn more about the stories behind the monuments and buildings and engage first hand with knowledgeable tour guides who share a passion for DC!
Whether you live here or are visiting, these tours are sure to add to your DC experience. The only one that you need to RSVP for in advance is the American Scandal tour on Friday night, for the day time tours you can just show up, though advance registration is requested, it is not required. If you have any questions, you can call 202.421.4053 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. When you show up for the tour, just look for the guide with the DC Walkabout logo shirt and a safari hat on! Tours take about two hours each and are held rain or shine. You can also follow DC Walkabout on facebook and @DCWalkabout twitter. Remaining tours this weekend, and tour descriptions, listed below.
