Washington DC

Half-Day Grand Tour of Washington DC

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
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.
  • Avoid miles of walking: See more than 50 DC landmarks in four easy hours
  • Learn as you go: A guide provides background on each point of interest
  • Stop for photos at six iconic landmarks, including the White House
  • Small group size ensures a personalized tour and time for questions
What to Expect
Meet the tour guide at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Downtown Washington. Rather than walking notoriously long distances between each landmark, experience DC from the comfort of a tour bus. Enjoy live commentary and historical background, as you pass more than 50 points of interest—more than you could ever see in one day on foot. The guide points out landmarks that are easy to miss if exploring alone, including the Watergate Hotel, the unmarked FBI building, and the President’s Guest House. Over the course of the day, stop for photos at six of DC’s most iconic locations, including the White House, Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial, and Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial. Your tour ends at the original point of departure.

Dr. Ali was friendly, knowledgeable, and very energetic during our 4 hour long tour. We enjoyed hearing him speak about the city and I learned new things despite having lived there when I was younger. We will suggest this tour company to friends and family. We will visit Ali

My friend and I were so looking forward to learning more about the history of DC with all of its monuments and museums. We were very disappointed that Ali talked so fast and was so hard to understand that we were unable to understand most of what he was saying. Also, it is the

Ali was 15 minutes late picking us up at the Hyatt, that’s how the tour started. I think for the price you should get admittance to at least the Capitol or an attraction—you basically get to sit in an air conditioned bus while the driver tries to talk about everything you are
