If you want to see Washington D.C. Make sure you take one of these tours. It's safe, convenient and a fun way to see D.C. It made seeing the White House worth it.

We are planning to take a train from NYC to Washington and buy our tickets for the Big Bus red line at Union Station. At the end of the tour, does the bus continue from the last stop to Union Station or do we have to hop off at the last stop and take another bus back to Union Station? Thank you for your attention to this question.

Iwo Jima, the Lincoln Memorial, and the Vietnam Wall are all there right together. You can just walk over.
