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.

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.

Awesome tour with guide who gave the historical facts of each monument along with added information that made the tour even better. It's the way to go if you have a short time to tour or have trouble walking long distances. I was able to take pictures and on a very hot day the breeze was great.

Brian was the most enthusiastic and well informed guide! He made the tour very special!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

This 2 hour trip that covers all of the major monuments is the perfect way to see Washington. We just had a few days in DC and the weather was hitting nearly 100 degrees F/40 degrees C on the day we were touring. We would never have been able to walk and see everything that we did in that 2 hour tour. This is HIGHLY recommended for families. Worth every penny!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

Great way to get a big picture snap of the city. On a hot day, it was comfortable because of the breezes created by cart movement, better than trying to walk much of this. Miller had a great voice, fun inside stories, and was patient with my 92 year old mother.

Very good.
