Why Travelers Choose This Tour

A balance of driving and site visits keeps the pace varied, and the commentary engages even the older kid and tween set. If you've explored D.C. during the day, choose the night tour to see the monuments illuminated in the darkness.
Meet the guide and the rest of the tour group at the National Archives Building to begin this comprehensive half- or full-day tour around and through the nation’s capital, Washington DC. Travel aboard an air-conditioned motorcoach with an expert local guide who knows the city inside and out.

On the morning tour, visit the most popular monuments, memorials, and museums in DC. Stops include the United States Capitol, the White House, the Lincoln Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the Vietnam Women’s Memorial, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial and the World War II Memorial. Also, drop-offs at the National Museum of Natural History or the Fashion Centre at Pentagon City are offered.

The evening tour covers the same itinerary as the morning tour, except each of the landmark locations is illuminated for the evening.

On the full-day tour, see all of the city’s popular monuments and attractions. Drive by 30 of Washington, DC’s top sites with stops at 12 of them, including the United States Capitol, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, the Korean War Veterans Memorial, the Marine Corps War Memorial (aka the Iwo Jima Memorial), the World War II Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial, the White House, the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the Vietnam Women’s Memorial and the United States Air Force Memorial.

Along the way, hear the historic stories and facts that make the city of Washington, DC one of the most popular tourist destinations in the United States. There is a lunch break at approximately the halfway point of the day.

A MUST at the start of your visit to DC

We weren't sure how this tour would work, since it has so many stops and it was perfect! Our tour guide was SO knowledgeable about both the history, the city, our country and so much fun, i can't imagine how much we would have missed and left without knowing. Great pace. This is a great starting spot to see what landmarks you want to come back to with more time, so i would suggest doing this as soon as you get into the city. We based where we were wanting to spend more time at on this tour- great plan maker! I will be back in the fall and plan on taking the tour again. thanks for the bonus ticket to go inside the Washington Monument!! What a cherry on top of this delightful cake!

Tyrone was very knowledgable and funny. They had to adjust the tour to accomodate an unexpected parade. They did a very good job of changing but still making the tour an excellent one.

A Great Washington DC Tour by Cassie

Cassie was brilliant! (I hope I spelt your name correctly) Her knowledgeable and her delivery throughout the whole tour was exceptional. What was very noticeable to my wife & I was Cassie clearly loved being a tour guide and it was projected as such when telling us the history of Washington DC. As British tourists from London we had a real understanding of American history throughout the tour. If we were forced to choose favourite locations it would be the Lincoln Memorial & The Martin Luther King Memorial but in all honesty every location was memorable. I have forgotten the driver's name but he was equally brilliant, turning up at the right time at each meeting point. Giving out free water on the minibus is a really nice touch. The whole day was well planned out well and my husband and I had a really good time I would recommend this tour 100% and if you have Cassie she will be a hard act to follow
