Washington D.C. Tours
Discover DC the DEAF way!
SYNOPSIS / INTRODUCTION TEXT goes here… (maybe transcript from video above?)
(FYI, I pulled the below text out from AI CHAT to get started with… if helpful!)
With direct communication in American Sign Language and Deaf guides, we bring you a “close-up tour” in Washington, D.C. that we provide your students with a more intimate and in-depth experience of the city’s landmarks, history, and culture. Unlike larger group tours, we offer smaller groups, allowing for a more personalized and interactive experience.
These tours may involve visits to iconic landmarks, historical sites, deaf-focused sights, neighborhoods, and cultural institutions. They often include detailed explanations and stories provided by knowledgeable deaf tour guide(s) and/or deaf special guests, giving your students a deeper understanding of the significance and context of the places they visit.
Our tours may also offer unique perspectives, such as access to areas that are not typically open to the public, behind-the-scenes experiences, or opportunities for interactive activities.
