Step by Step

Get to know the history and the most important monuments of Washington DC on this tour focused on the Cold War. Throughout the tour, which lasts approximately 2 hours, you will be accompanied by a tour guide. This guide will introduce you to some of the most important monuments that have some sort of connection to the political developments from 1950 to 1980.

During the 1950s Kennedy ruled the USA, and it was at this time that the Cold War took place. These years were the opportunity for a group of women to participate and directly affect politics, which was not possible at that time. This tour will show you how their actions were decisive in the development and ending of this war.

The monuments you will visit will be related in some way to these women. From the first house where they started meeting and debating, to the place where Kennedy asked his wife to marry him. Therefore, you will get a great insight into the reasons why politics developed the way it did.

So, as well as being an experience of appreciating the American landscape and buildings, it will also be a cultural experience. You will learn about the lives of women who managed to make their way in a male-dominated environment.
