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.

Highly recommend this tour , if you want to see as much of Washington as possible within a short time this tour is excellent. Very informative and helpful guide who managed to allow enough time at each location.Even managed our visit to the White House without crowds! The coach is air conditioned with free wifi and yes it is a long trip however well worth it!

Was a really jam packed trip . Great for those who have no time to see Washington DC. We went very quickly from place to place and it was over 100 degrees !! so hot dont go in July ! Guide was very informative and kept us all in line so we got everything done! I would have like longer at the Lincoln Memorial and less at the cemetery.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

Enjoyed the tour and again the weather was the spoil sport... temp was hovering around 90F but it was sunny and humid that was making things difficult. The tour guide was good and knowledgeable.. the tour was a bit tiring but we surely enjoyed every moment of the tour and would recommend the same to other as it was best way to see both New York and DC if one is short of time.

A very well organised tour and our tour guide were very specific and very detailed of what we are going to do. She is well verse of the history and very professional it's worth every penny to give her a tip.
My husband and I enjoyed every minute we spent with her.
