We downloaded the app and printed off the map to do the tour ourselves. I bought tickets for the Ford Theater tour as well to tie into the end of the tour. The tour was well written, we enjoyed seeing the buildings and walking in the footsteps of history. Would definitely recommend for the $9.00.

I once took a walking tour in Bath, England that was a very blithe and humorous look at English History. I have always wondered why there was not such a tour in Washington DC. Well, the "American Scandals" Tour is the equivalent in our nations Capital – a very witty and fun tour that uses our Capital Hill's architectural monuments... More

The DC Walkabout tour has been a standard addition to my host activities as someone who lives in DC. I recently brought guests on The Big 5 and the Arlington National tours- Both were a fantastic way to spend the afternoon. The guide has always been knowledgeable and friendly - and I especially love the laid-back feeling to the experience.... More

I joined a good friend to hear stories of scandal from Lafayette Square down to Pennsylvania Avenue straight to the Capitol. I've lived in DC for four years and was surprised by the number of stories our guide, Sean, shared that were new to me. The pace was easy and Sean was sensitive to the comfort of the group. Tour...

I recently did the scandal tour with several girlfriends on a Friday night. The tour guide was awesomely knowledgable and entertaining. The walk went from Lafayette Park to the Capitol. It was a great walk at a reasonable pace. I would recommend this tour to both tourists and locals alike.

I recently brought a group of teens and 5 adults to DC for a church festival and had scheduled a night walking tour on the mall/monuments.

The above group placed a reservation for a regularly scheduled tNational Mall tour, of which it is and has always been our policy to wait for 5 minutes after the scheduled time before beginning the tour with the rest of the group.
