To ensure the best DC touring experience, dress comfortably for walking. Wear comfortable shoes, and bring a light jacket for wear in our air-conditioned shuttle buses. DC weather can change quickly, so it is best to always be prepared (especially in transition seasons like Fall and Spring).
It is best to bring water to stay hydrated throughout the day, as we cover a lot of ground on our tours, and If you’d rather not bring your own, there are plenty of opportunities to purchase water from vendors along the route.
Throughout your guided tour, you inevitably be exposed to sunlight. Be sure to wear appropriate clothing to protect yourself from overexposure to the sun: Hats, Sunglasses and most importantly – Sunblock SPF!
Don’t forget your camera (or even your camera phone!) to capture moments from your guided tour. Ensure your batteries are fully charged and ready for a day of snapping memories from the monuments, memorials, and historical landmarks.
