    Meet the guide and the rest of the tour group at the National Archives Building to begin this comprehensive half- or full-day tour around and through the nation’s capital, Washington DC. Travel aboard an air-conditioned motorcoach with an expert local guide who knows the city inside and out.

Also, drop-offs at the National Museum of Natural History or the Fashion Centre at Pentagon City are offered.

    The evening tour covers the same itinerary as the morning tour, except each of the landmark locations is illuminated for the evening.

    On the full-day tour, see all of the city’s popular monuments and attractions. Drive by 30 of Washington, DC’s top sites with stops at 12 of them, including the United States Capitol, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, the Korean War Veterans Memorial, the Marine Corps War Memorial (aka the Iwo Jima Memorial), the World War II Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial, the White House, the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the Vietnam Women’s Memorial and the United States Air Force Memorial.
