“Having only arrived 7 hours before my "Let Yangon Take You For A Ride" tour was set to start, I was a bit nervous that my jet lag would get the best of me. But it turned out to be the perfect experience for my first day in Myanmar. Although culturally intensive, the lazy train ride through urban then suburban landscapes, villages and agricultural areas was beautiful. Thura was early and eager to get going. As the only one on the tour, I was privileged to get his full attention and get a chance to ask all my burning questions. He's passionate and proud of his country, open and honest, fluent and well-spoken. It was a real pleasure to spend the day with him - like hanging out with a local friend. This tour is the ultimate local experience. I didn't see a single tourist during the whole trip and I loved taking on local transit, being thrown into the middle of an abundant, lively vegetable market, and getting to have my first taste of delicious Burmese food. This tour really inspired the theme for my Intrepid trip, which started that evening - to paraphrase Henry Miller, "Burma is not a place, but a new way of seeing things".”

“Bob did a great job giving us the history of downtown Detroit. It was our first day on our trip, and this was exactly what we needed to learn a little more about the city and give us a sense of where Detroit currently is. Thank you for the information and experience.”
ITINERARY

Cocktails have been a major part of DC culture since the very beginning — George Washington even owned the largest distillery in the country! Join us as we explore the history of prohibition and cocktails in DC and learn how alcohol helped shape this country.

Your DC cocktail tour will start in Indiana Plaza, the site of the famous Temperance Fountain gifted to DC to show support for Prohibition. From there, we’ll take you to visit three of DC’s best cocktail bars where we’ll sample drinks, meet the people behind the bars, and observe how their craft cocktails are made.

We’ll regale you with tales of DC speakeasies, take you to bars you wouldn’t find on your own, to the penthouse for a breathtaking view of the of the city and everywhere in between.

Along the way, you’ll uncover how cocktails have played a massive part in DC’s history, learn how Prohibition shaped the city, and discover the local distilling movement that's returning. By the time you’re done, you’ll never look at cocktails in quite the same way.
