A tour is a great way to see the sights, and I’m not just saying that because I’m a tour guide. When I travel to a new city I always seek out guided tours, sometimes multiple tours in the same place so that I can get a few different local perspectives. When you’re planning your trip to Washington DC you will quickly discover that we have no shortage of tour options. Trip Hacks DC tours are different from some of the other tours in town because we specialize in private small group tours. Of course a lot of people have asked me what does that actually mean? and how much does it cost? Here’s how it works: Trip Hacks DC tours cost one price per group – NOT per person. So if you’re a family of four and you sign up for my Monuments at Twilight tour, the cost is $250, if you’re a group of six it costs $250. And any group up to ten people is the same flat price. The reason that it’s priced like this is because when you sign up for a Trip Hacks DC tour it’s a private tour, which means it’s just your group and the tour guide. You won’t get placed into a group with anybody else. Compare this, for example, to some of the other two options in town. On another tour you might pay something like forty dollars per person. So if it’s a couple they pay eighty dollars. A family of four one hundred and sixty dollars; but since it’s not a private group it means that you’ll be going out with some other tourists. During peak season in the summer, this could mean up to a dozen or more other people. Now this option isn’t all bad. The most obvious advantage is that it could be more cost effective, and hey you might make some new friends on your tour! The big downside is that with a big group like this it can be harder to hear your tour guide and you won’t be able to interact with them as much because they have to entertain all the other people. For first-time visitors I always recommend my Monuments at Twilight tour. It’s a three-hour tour where I’ll take you to all of the major and some lesser-known monuments and memorials on the National Mall. Of course I say this a lot but the best trip hack you’ll receive on any trip to Washington DC is to see the monuments and memorials lit up at night. My tour is designed to give you a great experience with that. So that’s it, thank you for watching this video.
