Frequently Asked Questions
What makes Attucks Adams different?
There are dozens of tour companies in Washington, DC. Some are great at what they do, but many offer the same experience: rushing you through the sites, using scripted deliveries, and taking on too many guests to give everyone personal attention.
Attucks Adams is a small company and serves smaller, private groups. Our tours are personalized to you. We're guide you through each step of the law making progress on Capitol Hill, or each era of American history at the memorials. You'll have time to observe closely, use those observations to form questions, and even then, ask follow up questions. We start on time, move at a comfortable space, and end on time so you're able to make your next appointment, meal, or flight.
What we won't do:
Overbook. Your private tour is yours. No one else will be on the tour. Our public tours are capped at 10 participants.
Give bad info. We won't willingly give incorrect information or false anecdotes. If we don't know a fact or answer, we'll say "I don't know." If it's really important we'll find out and get back to you. Whatever it takes.
Rush you. There's a lot to see on Capitol HIll and at the monuments. I think we've picked the best, most important parts to show you regarding how government works, and how history shapes our monuments and memorials.
