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.

Driver mike was great and very informative


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

We took this tour the weekend of September 24. Our driver, Mike, was wonderful! Many of the streets were blocked off due to the opening of the Smithsonian African-American Museum, but Mike knew the area and was able to get us around to see the things we wanted to see. He was quite knowledgeable and informative and very entertaining. It is somewhat forbidding to be in what is essentially a large golf cart in the midst of Washington DC traffic. On the other hand, its small size and maneuverability allowed us into places that a bus would not. THe tour went nicely and I would highly recommend it!

This is the way to go to get a 2 hour tour of the DC monuments. I've lived in the DC area almost my whole life but had friends in town who had never been here. They loved it and so did I. Mike our tour guide was informative and entertaining.

Rob our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. A really great tour! Definitely the way to go if you have a limited time in DC. Concise, but very informational. And the carts make it feel like a walking tour, but covering much more ground.
