They usually pick people up from hotel if you are staying in D/C. Also you can park by their office at 420 L'Enfant Plaza, cost per day is around $20.
I have tickets for the June 4, 2017 twilight tour and am wondering if I can get picked up near where we are staying?

We have booked for a tour from L'enfant Plaza at 12:00 on June 22nd but our hotel is in Arlington and we arrive that morning and as pensioners we would like to know if we can pick up the shuttle at Arlington Cemetery to Lincoln Memorial so we can get to start our tour on time and if so what time do the shuttles run.
