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 email@example.com. When you show up for the tour, just look for the guide with the DC Walkabout logo shirt and a safari hat on!

American Scandals Tour
Which congressman held a press conference from an exotic dancing club? Who shot his wife's lover and got away with it? Who challenged the press to dig up dirt on him and lost? Lurid "tails" and excesses of human nature abound unapologetically at every turn. Washington DC is as famous for its dastardly deeds as for its architectural beauty or even the work done on Capitol Hill. Travel through time on our adults-only American Scandal walking tour, which serves as a humorous stroll through the indiscretions of our Founding Fathers all the way up to present day political high jinks. Disclaimer: Rated R (for Ridiculous) Note: Reservations Required for this one.
