Swap the hustle and bustle of New York City for the pomp and glory of Washington DC on a 16-hour private tour from NYC. See some of America’s most iconic and important buildings and monuments, including the White House and Capitol.
What to Expect
Discover the heart of Federal government in America on a private full-day tour of Washington DC, with round-trip transfers by private vehicle from New York City.
As a private tour the precise schedule can be altered to suit your needs, but a typical itinerary includes a US Capitol tour, a visit to the Library of Congress and Supreme Court buildings, and a tour of Arlington National Cemetery. See the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns.
Walk by the White House, and visit monuments such as the Lincoln, Vietnam Veteran's, Korean War, Martin Luther King, World War II, and Jefferson memorials. Go to the National Mall, and Washington Monument, and see one of the world’s largest buildings at the Pentagon.
Along the way, enjoy great photo opportunities at iconic sights. You will also have the option to trade off time spent at the memorials for time in one of the Smithsonian museums of your choice. Choose from the Air and Space Museum, Natural History Museum, American Art Museum, or more.
Enjoy lunch in either the Supreme Court dining room or cafeteria of the Capitol. On your return to New York stop at Baltimore's Inner Harbor for dinner on the water. The drive to Washington from New York is approximately 4 hours, giving you about 8 hours of sightseeing, including the optional stop in Baltimore.
