Dc Rickshaw Monuments Tour
The DC Rickshaw Monuments Tour is the simplest way to enjoy DC while being out in the open air. A rickshaw is part taxi and part carriage. You are taken throughout the city to all your favorite destinations, and it is ridden by a tour guide who knows the city very well. You get to chat with the driver, and you have the wind blowing in your hair at the same time.
The rickshaw tour starts at a central location where you are given an assigned rickshaw, you get to meet your tour guide, and you set off into the city. This ride takes a couple hours as it goes past all the normal monuments, and it moves so slowly that you get to take as many pictures as you want without stopping. This tour is unique because you get to see DC from ground level without a large tour group.
Tourists love this tour because it is a much more quaint way of getting around the city. You might have the tour planned for the morning when it is cool outside, or you could go in the afternoon to get some sun.
The tour has tickets online, and these tours set off all during the day. Simply pick the time that works best for you, and you can jump on the back of a rickshaw right now.
The Rickshaw tour of DC sends you to all the monuments, and it provides you with a kind driver who knows the area well. You feel more comfortable, and it might be a romantic way to take in the city.
The tour starts at the Old Post Office on 12th and Pennsylvania Ave. NW. From here, stroll along Pennsylvania Avenue and arrive at the White House. Take a picture in front of the White House (outside the gates) and pass by the Washington Monument, the Vietnam War Memorial and stop to say 'hello' to the Great Emancipator who wrote the Gettysburg Address inside the Lincoln Memorial. Walk by the reflecting pool and stand where Martin Luther King delivered his famous "I have a dream" speech.
Finally, enjoy the fountains of the World War II Memorial as you experience the Atlantic and Pacific sides of the monument. Your guide will bring you back to the Old Post Office and bid you farewell.
