That's Entourtainment!

By washingtonpost.com

If you're like me, tourist season finds you wanting to get out and be a tourist, but hating the crowds, the lines, the traffic ... well, you get the picture. I say, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em! Strap on a camera, hop on the bandwagon and get in the spirit with one of these snazzy guided tours.

For the adventurer:
Flock to a duck tour. You've seen them around town and you harbor a secret desire to ride an amphibious vehicle or at least just have a reason to freely quack. Climb aboard one of these Coast Guard-approved vessels, grab a duck whistle and be prepared to take a gander at the sights from both land and sea for 1½ hours.

For the athlete:
If you love bikes and are looking for a ticket to ride, Bike the Sites has several choices, including L'Enfant's City, a tour of French influences on Washington, or you can customize your own. Tours last from 2-3 hours.


For the romantic:
See the monuments by moonlight. Enjoy the serenity of the city's most beloved buildings and monuments at night while hearing their history (and a few ghost stories). The tour lasts 2 ½ hours and takes you around the must-sees.


For the scandal seeker:
For those who want the dish on the District, join Gross National Product's Scandal Tour. You'll travel the town for 1½ hours and learn the city's seamiest secrets, narrated by members of the GNP comedy troupe.
