Historic America Tours

In a city with so many tour options, it’s easy to think they’re all the same, but Historic America takes great pride in being a little different. Don’t get stuck with a boring guide reciting facts and statistics and dates that you’ll never remember, instead hire a Professional History Nerd that approaches each tour with joy, passion, and an eagerness to connect you with the story. Whether you’re a history aficionado or a first-time history fan, Historic America is dedicated to creating personal connections and memorable experiences.

Historic America tours are multi-sensory adventures; see, hear, touch, taste, and smell history! Your guide will employ an arsenal of historically relevant objects geared toward stimulating all 5 senses: They call them Sensory Supplements. Taste space food while visiting the final resting place of an astronaut. Hear the “cricket” WWII paratroopers used to identify friendlies behind enemy lines on D-Day. Smell the streets of D.C. when it was just a dirty, backwater town (spoiler alert: not very pleasant). Guides are also equipped with a curated selection of fascinating historical video segments & audio clips loaded on touch screen tablets. These supplements enhance stellar storytelling, bringing history to life!

A full menu of small-group and private tours are available. From the National Mall to Arlington National Cemetery, the Tidal Basin to the Smithsonian museums; Historic America is your ticket to explore the District. Dive deeper into the local culture and explore neighborhoods like the U Street Corridor, Chinatown, Dupont Circle, and more! Battlefield tours are just a short drive from the city; Historic America is happy to arrange transportation.

In addition to in-person experiences, they offer at-home content that is both entertaining and educational! YouTube series Dead, White, and Blue, top-rated podcast A Place in Time, and an online journal. The rich history of the United States is just a click away; don’t delay!

After a long busy day of history learning, return to your home away from home, a Washington dc bed and breakfast to sleep the night away.
