What You Can Expect

Deluxe Half Day Tour of DC with Reserved US Capitol Entry

The Lincoln Memorial

Make your way to a meeting point outside the Library of Congress, then join a guide and group for reserved entry to the US Capitol Building, skipping right past the admission lines.

After passing through security, you’ll watch a 15-minute orientation film and explore the building with your guide, walking through the Crypt, Rotunda, and the National Statuary Hall. When the tour of the US Capitol Building concludes, board a climate-controlled shuttle bus for a trip down the National Mall, a National Park lined with memorials and landmarks. You’ll stop to see the White House from the North Lawn, and take in some of the most important memorials to presidents, national leaders, the military, and fallen soldiers.

Tour the National WWII Memorial and the monumental Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, then continue to the Lincoln Memorial to climb the famous steps to the President’s statue. See a moving tribute to the armed forces at the Korean War Veterans Memorial and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, then finish the day at the US Navy Memorial, a centrally-located landmark that’s just off the National Mall.

Guides were most helpful, personable an informed. Trip itinerary was very comprehensive and comfortable. Transportation by tour bus was very good. Only problem was our dates for visiting were during the January 2018 East coast deep freeze! Much of the tour is outside.

3 star rating: Worth doing December 2017

Could have been organised better as mixed in with those taking the river cruise so we lost a lot of time taking them and until asked what was going got a new bus for the group of us to continue on instead of having to wait around
We booked half day for a reason due to time constraints
