SHIRTours offers a variety of tours in English, Spanish, and Turkish:
Black History through narrative and song in cooperation with Alexander Tours LLC,
“Monuments and More!” song-filled Tours of Washington, DC's monuments,
Customized tours of DC area tailored to fit your needs and interests.
Tour Guiding should be about synthesizing the histories of inter-related communities, not just recounting facts about places and celebrities. SHIRshows you, through narrative and song, how communities lived together. Come on a walk through time, sing together if you like, or simply ponder and ask as we trace footsteps that led to where we are now.
