What You Can Expect

2-Day Grand Tour of Washington DC


Both days of this 2-day tour begin at Union Station in Washington, DC. Climb on board a luxury motor coach for the historical sightseeing adventure of a lifetime, exploring the most famous landmark locations in and around our nation’s capital, Washington, DC. Please note that tours operate Tuesday through Saturday only.  Tours do not need to be taken on consecutive days.

One day, drive by the Washington Monument, the Tidal Basin and the J. Edgar Hoover Building from the coach. Make stops at the National World War II Memorial, Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial and the White House Visitor Center, and receive a guided tour of the US Capitol Building (Mondays through Saturdays only).

Then proceed to the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery for the Changing of the Guard ritual by members of the U.S Third Infantry. Stop to see the John F. Kennedy Eternal Flame, then continue on to a number of important memorials — the Lincoln Memorial and the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool, the Women in Military Service for America Memorial Foundation, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and the Korean War Veterans Memorial.

The first day of the tour ends with a return trip to Union Station.

On the second of two days in Washington, DC, travel from Union Station to Mount Vernon, George Washington's beloved plantation in Virginia. Tour the mansion and the Donald W. Reynolds Museum and Education Center, featuring 23 galleries and theaters where visitors learn about Washington through interactive displays, an action adventure movie, short films produced by the History Channel and more.

This tour is well worth every dollar spent. The Washington DC tour was complete overview of the main sites in the area. The Arlington and Mount Vernon part of the tour was spectacular. Our driver on the Arlington/Mount Vernon tour was fabulous and I would highly recommend this trip to anyone interested in a terrific overview of Washington DC and the surrounding areas.

My husband and I really enjoyed our 2-day tour experience with Grayline Tours. They were professional, courteous, and very knowledgeable about D.C.! I would highly recommend this company to others. Touring Mount Vernon was more then I expected. There was so much to see!

Excellent tour guide. My third time to tour Washington DC and learned more out the history of the United States. Very interesting. However, the heavy rain did not allow us to see the home of George Washington because my traveling companion was unable to walk the distance to the home in the heavy rain. Otherwise, everything was ok.

Especially enjoyed the second day tour and had an excellent tour guide who was very knowledgeable of the sites, plus his presentation and personality really made this tour very enjoyable.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

We took the two day DC tour and enjoyed an excellent overall city tour with two knowledgeable and personal drivers, Wayne and Bob! Thanks for a favorable first trip to DC.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

Excellent tours on both days. Drivers were very informative and clearly had a lot of experience. One driver even varied the route to show us things that were not necessarily part of the tour which was greatly appreciated. Lots of walking on both days and it's rain or shine so bring rain gear if it's looking grey.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

Bob, the driver on the DC in a day portion was so hilarious and considerate, I didn't think we could get a better driver. The second day proved to be equally awesome, and David was excellent, especially in the horrendous traffic.
