We have noticed that there are a lot of out-of-country attendees to the TCB Council meetings who are unfamiliar with Washington, DC, and are interested in taking a tour.  We are leading an introductory tour of Washington, DC that will originate and terminate at the Marriot Baltimore Inner Harbor hotel.

On Friday, Nov. 3, we will meet in the lobby of the hotel at 7:30 AM and proceed to walk approximately 5 minutes to the Camden stop for the MARC commuter train.  We will take the 8:05 AM train and arrive at the Washington DC Union station at approximately 9:15 AM.  At that time, assuming that we have enough interested persons, we will facilitate the two following options:

Option 1/Group 1
Walk the Capitol Mall together, starting at the Capitol, stopping in at free museums, and terminating at the Lincoln Memorial.  We will take a 30 minute lunch break approximately half-way through the tour.  We will walk back to the Union train station for the 2:34 PM train on the Penn line and arrive back in Baltimore at approximately 3:45 PM at Penn Station.  We will then take taxis back to the hotel and expect to arrive by 4:00 PM.

 

Option 2
After walking by the Supreme Court and walking to the Capitol, we will board a hop on/hop off bus tour.  Prior to our first boarding, as a group, we will decide where we will stop.  There are about 20 different stops from which to select.  There will be earphones available which will have tour information in several languages.  (Red Tour)

 This is the company that provides this service.

We will stop for lunch at an appropriate time.  We will wind up the tour in the early evening and return to the Union Station for the 7:45 PM train on the Camden Line which will arrive back near the hotel at the Camden stop at 8:55 PM.  We will then walk back to the Hotel together.

 

Costs:

Option1/Group 1: The cost of this tour will be limited to the train and taxi fare as well as any personal expenditures for lunch.  Estimated total cost is US $35.00.

Option2/Group 2: The cost of this tour will include train fare, trolley tour fair, and lunch.  Approximate costs will be $70.00.

Those taking the bus tour (Option 2) will sign up on line prior to leaving for the tour.  This cost is $39.00 US.  We will not handle any money as the balance of the costs of the tour will be for train tickets and possible taxi fare which will be paid while on the tour.

 

Please contact John Grinager or Danny Lee if you wish to come on either one of the tours.  Their emails are jgrinager@approve-it.net and dlee@approve-it.net.
