Really, really great. Loved all the history and was shown gardens I had not known existed--a real treat for me. I will definately take more tours. I live in the area, but there's a lot I don't know about! The trees were beautiful even though...continued

It was a great way to learn about the history of the Cherry Blossoms and to learn about some of the hidden treasures of the city. Our guide, Carolyn, was very knowledgable.

Description

Hear the stories and secrets behind the delicate blossoms during a walking tour featuring not only cherry trees, but also noteworthy arboreal cousins. Learn about the woman whose cherry tree vision lives on today, a Japanese lantern older than the United States itself, and where you can discover even more pink and white blooms. _

__Please note that this walking tour does not include a walk around the entire Tidal Basin area. (It is usually too crowded to bring a walking tour group around the Tidal Basin.) The walk concludes at the Tidal Basin, site of most of the famous Japanese cherry trees. Walk participants are welcome to walk the area on their own._ The tour lasts for approximately two hours and will take place rain or shine.
