Full description

Capitalize on your time in the capital with this whistle-stop city tour of Washington DC. Board one of our luxury buses at the U.S. Navy Memorial before cruising past the National Archives to the U.S. Capitol Building.

Let your guide give you the lowdown, from the original Declaration of Independence to the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Take in incredible views of the two-mile-long Smithsonian Museum and imposing Washington Monument, which is the tallest freestanding stone structure in the world.

You’ll have the chance to stretch your legs with stops at the White House and Lincoln Memorial, where you can climb the stairs to see the famous statue of America’s 16th President. Then, take an informative guided walk around the beautiful WW2 Memorial. The tour takes a loop from the United States Navy Memorial, stopping at memorable sites, such as the Vietnam Memorial, US Capitol Building and Lincoln Memorial. An experienced guide will explain every significant detail of each monument and memorial, and give you the most comprehensive and intimate tour experience DC has to offer. Marvel at the many Smithsonian museums, National Mall, Freedom Plaza, and much more from on board the bus. Then, learn the history of the White House, Capitol Building, FDR Memorial, and Martin Luther King Memorial during short guided walks.

    We had an amazing experience with Terry the guide and Tony the driver. the guide informed us that they also work out of New York and will be implementing convertible vehicles. we'll be gladly booking one of those once the chance arises. We would definitely recommend this. Great experience and also affordable

    My husband and I loved our tour! Joey was an excellent tour guide who shared numerous fascinating stories about the history of the area, people, and events. She even took photos of us with our camera. Tony was a wonderful driver who made us feel safe as we travelled through the city. We are so glad we chose this tour. Well worth the price!!

    Enjoyed every highlight on the tour but was not the guide as much.

    The guide was knowledgeable but had an annoying habit of addressing the group as “my friends” repetitively and it was so frequent it became annoying. After about the 20th time in 15 minutes I was irritated with it and actually wanted to say something but didn’t. Just my personal opinion but I would have appreciated a bit more professionalism.
