During the last 30 years, Historic Tours of America has educated hundreds of cast members and tour guides about the history of Washington D.C.

Before, during, and after your tour, we’ll be available to answer questions and share some of the most interesting details of this national landmark.
The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is guarded 24/7/365 by volunteer Sentinels from the 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment headquartered at Fort Myer, VA. Everyday at the top of the hour, a special ceremony is conducted to honor all American service members who are “Known But to God.” During the summer months, the ceremony is conducted on the half hour. This is one of seven stops on the guided tour and is definitely a must see for anyone visiting Washington D.C.
