Low Price Guarantee
No Booking Fees
On this full-day bus tour of Washington, DC, avoid the hassle of figuring out public transit on your own and visit more landmarks than you ever could on foot. Listen to the guide’s fascinating stories and then enjoy 10 to 20 minutes of free time to walk around each landmark. A small group size ensures the experience is tailored to your preferences.
  • Explore with a guide: Hear little-known stories about each location
  • Comfortable tour van saves hours of walking
  • Two-part tour: Enjoy a midday break with the group
  • Small group ensures a personalized experience
What to Expect
Meet your tour guide at the Grand Army of the Republic Memorial, just steps away from the National Mall. From the comfort of a tour van, you are able to visit more landmarks than you ever could on foot in a single day. A local guide provides historical background and little-known anecdotes at each point of interest, including the White House, Jefferson Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, and various war memorials. Explore on your own for 10 to 20 minutes before moving on to the next location. After a midday lunch break (own expense), continue to more of DC’s top landmarks. Unlike many inflexible full-day tours, the day's itinerary is subject to change depending on the preferences of the group. Around 4pm, arrive back to downtown DC and part ways with the guide.

The tour group ended up being small because of the chilly time of year (actually, just our family!), so Brian graciously picked us up from our hotel to save us the confusion of using the Metro. From there we had the best day, despite the cooler temps and drizzles. He was a
