Select Option


This tour is the ultimate All-American story told through the Smithsonian Museums, in the US capital city of Washington DC, taking you on private tours to both the National Museum of American History and the Museum of Natural History.

Your private tour will start at the National Museum of American History, where you’ll learn the vast sweep of American history. Enjoy a guided meander through the museum whilst learning about America’s socio-political and cultural history, from medical advancement to wars, from slavery to segregation, from tragedies to triumphs, and the breakthroughs made for ‘herstory’ by female mathematicians, artists, and artisans.

Next, you’ll take a short break before heading to the Museum of Natural History, where your private guide will show you the highlights of the museum and any new must-see temporary exhibits. If there are any particular exhibits you're curious about, please let your guide know, as they'll happily tailor the tour for you.

Truly awful experience with our guide Rick. Kept saying "well there's some stuff over here and some stuff over there" while bringing up his past personal life of how things use to be 60 years ago when he was a kid. Spent 30 minutes each at Julia Child exhibit and First Lady dress exhibit even though we had 12 year boys with us. Was so old and out of shape that we thought he was not going to be to finish...which would have been fine as we were ready to leave him after 20 minutes. It seemed as though he had been to museums maybe twice in his life and decided he could make money giving tours. Trip advisor and Viator should be ashamed they have this giving tours. Our morning guide for Library of Congress and US Capitol was excellent but our afternoon was complete waste of over $350. I guess it's a complete crap shoot as to what guide you get regardless of the actual place you are touring.
