Half-Day Grand Tour of Washington DC

104 reviews
Avoid the stress of renting a car and navigating on your own on this bus tour of Washington DC. A guide provides entertaining historical context, as you pass more than 50 of the city’s iconic landmarks, including the White House, Capitol Building, Lincoln Memorial, and National Mall. Unlike most city bus tours, a small group size ensures you have the guide's full attention for questions and comments.

Beautiful interior. Not very handicapped friendly. Many stairs to climb if you are on the mezzanine level where we were seated. Bring your credit card or money if you choose to purchase drinks or snacks. Friends with us each purchased a glass of champagne and paid $19 each. Seats are quite close with little wiggle room.

This is a great place to catch a show, no matter where you sit you have a great view. Lots of steps if you're in the upper balcony.

First of all, this is a magnificant theatre--closest to Broadway that DC has. I've been coming here for >50 years--intimate and beautiful. We came for the "S & G Story"--great songs, but it was a glorified tribute band show. Very little story. Pales in comparison to "Jersey Boys", "Beautiful", & "Ain't Too Proud". Recommend the theatre, but not the show.

Each year when vacationing in DC my wife and I make sure we take in a show at the National Theater. This is a wonderful place to see theater. Great sight lines and acoustic. It has the sense of a Broadway Theater and the shows are National Tours of Broadway Plays. If you have the time they run a in person lottery for a limited amount of discounted tickets 2 hours before show time.

Love going to The National Theatre during their Broadway Series. They offer a lottery for most shoes in the Broadway Series. We have gotten lucky and received orchestra seats for $25 each (cash) during the lottery! Great way to see more shows without breaking the bank. The theatre is intimate and sound for our shoes this year was fantastic! We also learned tonight that they offer The Morning Show throughout the year on Saturday and kids are free. Performances are at 9:30am and 11am. Reservations are required. I can’t wait to bring my friends’ kids!
