What You Can Expect

Washington DC Day Trip from New York

Washington DC from New York

our day trip to Washington DC from New York begins with the drive south from the city, passing through the East Coast states of Delaware, New Jersey and Maryland before arriving in the US capital.

When you arrive, start your DC sightseeing tour at Arlington Cemetery where you can visit JFK's gravesite. Then take a drive through the city center to admire landmarks like the domed Capitol building and the White House before visiting the National Air and Space Museum, part of the Smithsonian Institute. Finally, enjoy photo ops at some of DC’s most famous attractions, clustered around the National Mall—the Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument and Korean War Veterans Memorial. Then start the drive back to NYC, where your day trip ends.

Please note:
This tour is scheduled to stop in front of the White House and the Capitol building for commentary and photo ops, but please know that occasionally this is not possible due to security issues in Washington. If this occurs during your tour, the itinerary will be adjusted accordingly.

Gives you a good flavour of Washington D.C. in a day. Plenty of time at each stop and wasn't rushed around. Lovely trip down from New York to Washington D.C through all the states. Quite long day though, which is to be expected.

Although a long drive getting there and back, this tour was amazing and our guide highly knowledgeable and very polite with all the different nationalities. He was also very accommodating with all our needs. Worth every penny. A must do. Liz

It was a long day travelling but so so worth it, Washington is beautiful and a complete contrast to New York, so they complimented each other. Our tour guide, Mayan, was extremely professional and efficient but at the same time very likeable and approachable - we thought she was perfect, and very knowledgeable about the tour. Could've done with a little longer in the museum, and the half-way stop-offs were a little stressful because queues were so slow and l-o-n-g and we had to be mindful of timings, but other than those small things we thoroughly enjoyed our day trip, it was well organised and thoroughly enjoyable. Would highly recommend both the trip and this company, excellent value for money.
