Full description

Journey from NYC to Washington on a full-day trip to see the sights of the nation’s capital with a Spanish-speaking guide. Visit the most important monuments, memorials and buildings like the White House and the Washington Monument.

Head down South from NYC in a comfortable air-conditioned bus, passing through New Jersey and Delaware, with a stop in Delaware to stretch your legs and use the restrooms. Continue on past Maryland until Arlington, Virginia. The tour starts properly at Arlington National Ceremony, where the tour guide will take you to Kennedy’s grave and explore with you the lush grounds. Then, head to the Iwo Jima memorial, with time to take photos. During the whole journey, your guide will tell you interesting facts about the city.   Next, head to Washington DC across the Potomac River. Pass along Constitution Avenue where you’ll see the State Department, the Institute of Peace, and the Albert Einstein Memorial. Go to the National Mall and walk with your guide to places that have been featured in movies and TV series.

See the Korean War Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial, and the Vietnam War Memorial. You’ll recognize the Reflecting Pool from Forrest Gump. You’ll also see the most-visited monument in the city, the World War II Memorial.   Back on the bus, you’ll continue to view offices of important organizations such as the Organization of American States, the American Red Cross, and the Treasury Department until you finally reach the White House.

Take some time to take pictures in the gardens before continuing on to see the FBI buildings, the National Archives, and more. Your final stop will be the Air and Space Museum, where you’ll have some free time to visit the exhibits, have lunch, and take photos of the Capitol Building. On the way back to NYC, you’ll be treated to a night-time panoramic view of NYC from New Jersey.

Departed in a very clean 14-seater van. Our driver-guide, Ever, made sure everything ran smoothly. He entertained us with his knowledge all along the way. During the day we were able to see, even stopping for a while, what are practically the main points of interest of the capital. Highly recommended for those who spend 7 to 10 days in NY but don't want to miss other nearby cities without staying overnight. Friendly, helpful guide and excellent and punctual driver like a Swiss watch. At 8:00 pm we returned to Manhattan, after enjoying a privileged view of the skyline from New Jersey.

The activity is totally recommended. The most important sites in Washington are visited and they leave you time to see them quietly, take your photos... They make technical stops to have breakfast and go to the bathroom. The driver is very helpful and the guide, Fernando, is very professional. All the information you provide is interesting and relevant. Is very nice. I would repeat without a doubt

Perfect excursion thanks to our guide Fernando, it's nice to book activities and be lucky enough to find such a nice and professional guide. At all times he has informed us of the smallest details from the departure in New York, the journey by road and the stay in Washington. We have ended up amazed with the capital, without any doubt highly recommended. To finish, Fernando has taken us to an area in New Jersey where there was an unbeatable Skyline of the city. TOP
