What You Can Expect

Hop on the comfortable coach for the drive to Washington, DC, for this daylong trip to the nation’s capital. On the drive there, learn from your knowledgeable guide about the history of the city, about how it was designed to perfectly straddle the south and the north, thus being in neutral geographical territory. 

Once in the capital, stroll around the Mall, taking in the Vietnam War Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial and gawking at Capital Hill where the United States Congress meets. Stop by 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, home to POTUS, better known as the President of the United States. 

See Arlington National Cemetery where over 200,000 soldiers have been buried since the Civil War. And spend some time at the Smithsonian’s Air and Space Museum where history and technology blend together to make for a fascinating afternoon. 

And then enjoy the leisurely ride back to New York City having enjoyed the day in the capital.

Although really looking forward to this tour I was a little concerned with the 15hr duration. I didn't need to be as the day went quite quickly and very smoothly. The bus trip was fine and we had a nice little stop for food around half way. Our guide was a lovely lady who was very entertaining. We had the perfect weather although in Winter and Washington did not disappoint. Arlington cemetery was very moving and it was great to see the White House etc. We went to the Indian museum which was OK but the food was terrible so try and avoid eating here. The space museum was very interesting and worth a visit. Entry was free which was very nice. If you intend to stay in New York this tour is a must as you have Times Square etc. then the luxury of seeing the capital.

Enjoyed the tour and saw the sights of Washington- Laura was an excellent guide and very helpful. Was rather nervous about being late and missing the bus ! But no-one was late as we were reminded at every stop but timing given was clear and the trip well organised. George the driver did a great job considering the drive back was torrential rain.
You can charge your phone on the coach but need an American adapter to plug in. WiFi was available on the coach also.

very punctual and well organized. The departing point in NYC was central 46th St which was easy to find instead of Chinatown
The tour touched the points that I really wanted to see.

Such an amazing day! Book it you wont regret it! Sadly I have forgotten the lovely lady's name but she was an Italian lady who spoke very good English and Spanish. This was our highlight to New York and highly recommend it. You get so much out of the day and get to visit all of the main highlights of Washington in a very relaxed way. It was the day before we left to return to the UK and as we were approaching NY from New Jersery she told us to get our cameras ready to capture the amazing skyline of New York and as we did she played Frank Sinatras New York, New York song. So thoughtful and I will remember that moment for the rest of my life. Also on the last leg of our journey she put on Night of the Museum in the coach which just made the time fly by. Really do book this and hopefully you'll be lucky enough to get the same lady as us!

The bus ride was 4 hrs long each way. However, if you would like to see DC's key sites this is the tour for you. Our guide kept the banter flowing and we enjoyed his commentary. Definitely a day well spent!
