Capitol Hill and DC Monuments Tour by Electric Cart

Electric Cart Tour

There are walking tours and there are bus tours, but this unique eCruiser tour of the Capitol provides an entirely new perspective on the city of Washington, DC and its many famous landmark locations.

Meet the guide and the rest of the small-group at L’Enfant Metro Stop, located at the corner of 7th and C Street. Then climb aboard a nifty eCruiser vehicle — an open-air, eco-friendly electric cart that offers as much in style as it does with substance.

The tour begins at one end of the famed Smithsonian Institution, the world's largest museum and research complex. Travel along through the historic monument areas, taking in the famous Jefferson, Lincoln and Washington Monuments, each a classic Washington DC icon in its own right. 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. Along the way, hear the historic stories and facts that make the city of Washington, DC one of the most popular tourist destinations in the United States.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2017

This tour is an incredible experience, and ours was expertly run by Sofia. She is an outstanding guide, very knowledgeable about history, architecture, and the entire D.C. Area. Her sense of humor and friendly personality make her perfect for this tour, so ask for her if you can. We visited all the major sites, and were able to make a number of stops for photo ops. No worries about trying to take photos through a window! Slightly longer stops at the MLK monument including a bathroom break opportunity, and the Lincoln Memorial gave us a chance to explore a little on foot. The tour is a very efficient way to gain an overview of D.C. in two hours, and it allows you to save your energy for revisiting your favorite highlights if you wish. Even if you only have two hours to spare, take this tour for a great experience. Our twelve-year old grandson truly enjoyed the tour as much as we did. It is suitable for all ages, for those who can't walk great distances, but also for the active ones.

We did the electric cart tour this past Friday during the snow, and start of rush-hour. Our driver Chris was absolutely wonderful! We loved, loved, loved him. He was wonderful with his knowledge, and answering all our questions, and also the joking around. We had a wonderful time would highly recommend this to anybody and everybody.
