Have you ever wished you could learn more about Hill history, but clicking on links at The Hill is Home is just too much work? Have you ever wondered what has gone on behind those many straight-laced looking row houses on the Hill in past times? Have you ever thought that a walk through your neighborhood would be infinitely improved by having someone tell you local stories, live, during your walk?
Well, this Cyber Monday, local author and tour guide Robert Pohl (that’s him, above) has a deal for you: a 2-3 hour tour of the Capitol Hill neighborhood for you and five of your friends for the low, low price of $120. That’s 20% off his usual rate of $150, so this is your chance to save while you learn more about Capitol Hill.
Or, for the same price, you can send up to six members of your family off on a tour while you stay home and enjoy some blessed peace and quiet. The options are endless, the decision is yours.
Best of all, the tour is handcrafted and artisanal, which means you get a say as to where you go and what you get to hear about. Just send a list of topics that you are interested in, and the tour will be tailored to your specifications. It is truly the gift for the person who already has everything.
Possible topics include scandals, legends, Civil War, ghosts, military, architecture, African American history, alleys and LGBTQ+ history. But that’s just the beginning. If there is something else Hill-related, it can probably be included.
Also, for the students in your life who are stuck in endless Zoom classrooms, and need to get out, there is the option of a tour of the National Mall, its buildings and memorials. This adventure will support their studies and get them outside for a change. And they will get to hear stories that will make them see US history in a whole new way. Send them out, and be prepared to hear a lot of “my history teacher never told me that” from your offspring thereafter.
So, for an experience that can’t be beat, contact Robert at email@example.com to set up your tour, or buy a certificate good for one tour, and bask in the warm glow of knowing you have at least one thing knocked off of your Christmas list.
This deal won’t last forever, so send that email now, and we can work out a time, a place, and an itinerary!
