Capitol Hill and DC Monuments Tour by Electric Cart

Electric Cart Tour

There are walking tours and there are bus tours, but this unique eCruiser tour of the Capitol provides an entirely new perspective on the city of Washington, DC and its many famous landmark locations.

Meet the guide and the rest of the small-group at L’Enfant Metro Stop, located at the corner of 7th and C Street. Then climb aboard a nifty eCruiser vehicle — an open-air, eco-friendly electric cart that offers as much in style as it does with substance.

The tour begins at one end of the famed Smithsonian Institution, the world's largest museum and research complex. Travel along through the historic monument areas, taking in the famous Jefferson, Lincoln and Washington Monuments, each a classic Washington DC icon in its own right. Then see the World War I, World War II, Korean War Veterans and the Vietnam Veterans memorial sites.

Next, see the most famous DC landmark of all, the White House, followed by Capitol Hill, the US Supreme Court and finally, the Library of Congress, the nation's oldest federal cultural institution and research arm of Congress.

Along the way, hear the historic stories and facts that make the city of Washington, DC one of the most popular tourist destinations in the United States.

If you are short on time and can't walk long distances to monuments this is a fun tour. It doesn't cover everything or give you long stops, but it worked for us on this trip.

It was a great tour! Brian new so many little details about Washington, DC. It is only two hours long if you don't have much time to see all that DC has to offer. I was pressed for time and this fit in my schedule perfectly! Make sure to bring appropriate attire to keep warm during cooler temperatures and Brian was so kind in offering a blanket to keep warm.
