This exclusive Viator tour begins at the United States Navy Memorial on Pennsylvania Avenue NW between 7th Street NW and 9th Street NW in Washington, DC. Climb on board a comfortable, air-conditioned coach for a 4-hour sightseeing adventure that highlights some of the most popular landmarks in the area.
Begin with a drive by the White House, the official residence and principal workplace of the President of the United States of America, and the United States Capitol, often called Capitol Hill, the seat of the United States Congress.
The first stop is at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, a national memorial honoring those US service members of the armed forces who fought, died or went missing in the Vietnam War. Then see the Lincoln Memorial, honoring Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States; the Korean War Veterans Memorial, commemorating those who served in the Korean War; the Thomas Jefferson Memorial, dedicated to one of the nation’s founding fathers and author of the Declaration of Independence and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, honoring the icon of the civil rights movement.
Finally, visit the popular Washington Monument on the National Mall. A reserved entry ticket will be provided, granting quicker access with no waiting in line. Once inside and after a brief security screening, proceed to the ground floor lobby for an elevator ride to the observation deck 500 feet off the ground. Enjoy a stellar view of the entire region from this unique vantage point atop the world's tallest obelisk monument. Also, visit the 490-foot level museum and exhibits before concluding the tour with an elevator descent to the lobby.
