Know More about this tour

This is the classic Washington walk. Youll get up close to a selection of the citys famous memorials located on the National Mall. Theres something for everyoneneoclassical architecture, modern sculpture, haunting remembrances of war, historical insights, and even funny tales. Along the way, your guide sets the scene for the Federal Citys original plans to memorialize its national heroes and how theyve evolved with time. At one time the triumphant general on horseback was the preferred prototype. As the 20th century came to a close, however, new kinds of memorials had begun to appear that honored ordinary soldiers and depicted less glorious aspects of battle. As we approach each site, youll hear its particular story, revealing how fraught the memorial-making process can be.
