Additional Information

This isn’t the typical school field trip experience. Immerse yourself in the famed D.C. bar scene, presented to you by a knowledgeable local guide. You’ll be exposed to the less-taught aspects of history, while sharing laughter with fellow globe-trotters. It’s history time for adults!

On this 2 hour and 15 minute historical bar hop, you will unravel unheard stories of D.C. Learn the impact that alcohol had on the formation of our nation’s capital, from George Washington’s pursuits as a master distiller, through the grim era of Prohibition, and even the revelries held in the White House.

D.C. Crawling provides two pricing options: The Happy Hour Package completes your experience with four beers or ciders of your preference, while the Dry Run Ticket lets you enjoy the tour without any pre-purchased drinks. With either of these options, you reserve the right to buy your drinks straight from the bars.

So, slide onto one of the bar stools, order a cold one, and explore the Premier Pub Crawl of D.C! Bottoms up!

General Andrew Jackson Statue
The History Tour Pub Crawl meets at the Andrew Jackson Statue in Lafayette Square located at Pennsylvania Ave NW & 16th Street Northwest, Washington, DC, 20001. Your guide will be in front of the statue holding a DC Crawling sign with our crawling baby logo.

Nice views, beer okay - Nice venues we went and a good amount of information given. Just a little loud at a couple of them and the beer selection wasn’t the best. Our guide was great thought!
