Overview
Save time and avoid hassles with this full-day Washington DC tour that provides priority access to landmarks such as the United States Capitol and the National Archives Building. Focus on the sights and your guide's commentary instead of traffic and directions as you shuttle in a luxury bus between Lincoln Memorial, the White House, and other important destinations. Seasonally, a Potomac River cruise and lunch are included.
What to Expect
Exploring Washington DC can be overwhelming. This guided tour, which includes priority access to two popular sights, allows you to get a comprehensive overview of the nation's capital in a single day.
Meet your group at the US Capitol Visitor Center, where you'll enjoy a skip-the-line walking tour of the Senate and House of Representatives. See the Crypt, Rotunda, and National Statuary Hall, as well as a film about the history of US government.
Back on the shuttle, pass the White House on the way to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, United States Navy Memorial, Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, and Korean War Veterans Memorial. At each stop, hop out to have a look around, take photos, and listen to informative commentary from your guide.
Midday, head over to the Potomac River for an hour-long lunch cruise (seasonal, mid-March to mid-October). Alternatively, stop at the Pentagon City's Fashion Centre for free time and lunch at own expense.
The day's last stop is the National Archives Building, where you'll have priority access to see the Declaration of Independence, United States Constitution, the original Bill of Rights, and Public Vaults.
