Begin your combo tour of Washington DC by boarding your comfortable, air-conditioned coach at Union Station. As you travel the city on this 7 hour portion of this combo tour, listen to your knowledgeable driver share information and anecdotes about the US capital and its many famous sights.
Disembark your coach to visit certain landmarks independently. Join a guided tour (reserved for you in advance) of the US Capitol, where the Congress meets, and make the most of your photo stop at the White House South Lawn. At the White House Visitor Center, get a sense of what the White House looks like inside and learn about US presidents. Have lunch (at your own expense) at your choice of several locations; your guide will let you know when to return to the coach.
Pay your respects to the heroes of World War II at the stately World War II Memorial with its lovely fountains. Spend time exploring the vast collections at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum and the Smithsonian National Museum of American History.
In the course of your tour, you'll also see the Washington Monument, FBI headquarters (J Edgar Hoover Building), Federal Triangle, Ellipse, Tidal Basin, National Archives, House and Senate Office Building, US Botanical Gardens, National Gallery of Art, US Navy Memorial and Grant Memorial so keep your camera handy!
Enjoy dinner at the restaurant of your choice at Union Station (not included in fare) before taking your 3 hour evening tour of the national monuments flooded in lights. What a sight!
Step off the coach to visit the Jefferson, Lincoln, Vietnam, Korean and FDR memorials, and experience breathtaking views from the roof of the Kennedy Center (if available).
