Take Wedding Guests Out on the Town With DC Insider Tours

Entertain visiting family and friends with these customizable city tours.

Your aunts, uncles, cousins, and your cousins’ kids are in town for the weekend for your wedding, and you have three options:

  1. Wear yourself out walking them through all the memorials and museums you’ve seen a million times.
  2. Send them out on their own, risking the chance they’ll get lost or be bored and show up at your big event irritated that you weren’t a better host.
  3. Book them a DC Insider’s Tour while you spend the day sipping mimosas and getting your nails done, resting up for the main event.

DC Insider Tours offer guided experiences of the nation’s capital, and they take the “insider” part seriously. Rather than roaming the Mall and snapping an over-done photo in front of the Capitol, your guests will get the juicy, behind-the-scenes details that only a local could provide. From the DC in a Day walking tour that covers the city’s notable neighborhoods and concludes at the White House to the Ghosts, Scandals, and Murder tour that drags more than a few of the city’s skeletons to light throughout Federal Triangle and Lafayette Square, each tour offers a special take on one of the world’s biggest tourist towns.

But DC Insider Tours work for more than just a weekend distraction—they’re also a great way to give your guests a backstory for your nuptials. At your request, the tour can take your guests to the landmarks from your relationship—where you went on your first date, where he popped the question—with the accompanying narrative to share your Washington love story with your friends and family.
