Know More about this tour

This educational sightseeing tour promises to pack a lot into a short amount of time — a 4-hour tour that provides an introduction to the many monuments, memorials, and popular points of interest in Washington, DC.

Begin by meeting the guide and the rest of the tour group at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill. The tour will drive by a wide variety of locations, with stops for photos at the White House (outside the south front for pictures), the Thomas Jefferson Memorial, the Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial, the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, the Marine Corps War Memorial, and the Lincoln Memorial — which also includes visits to the Korean War Veterans Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and the Vietnam Women's Memorial.

Drive by over a hundred sites and memorials along the way — like the US Capitol building, the Washington Monument, and the Smithsonian Museums — learning about the history of each as they unfolded over time. Instead of simply showing the sites and announcing what each one is, the tour operator will describe the events that led up to the creation as well as the people who played key parts in the planning of construction and implementation.

  • This certainly was not a 'Grand Tour' hence the title is somewhat misleading. We arrived early for pick up however actual pick up was 20 minutes late so we were concerned something had gone wrong. The van was aged and not that clean inside ect. On a positive Ali our tour guide was very pleasant and extremely knowledgeable around Washington, great detail. The last opportunity to stop ended at 1:30pm with the option of drop off to the pick up point or Capital. The tour effectively started at 10:50 and finished by say 2pm so not really half a day. For those visiting Washington is amazing we stayed on at the three memorials and walked through to capital, fantastic walk, loads of photo opportunities.

  • Had also taken a half-night tour and both driver's provided insight and great commentary information for the various sites. Gave ample time for close-up photos. Recommend taking both a night and day tour.

  • Unfortunately it rained all day. We enjoyed the driver because she was well educated on the info of the monuments that we went by. Had the opportunity to get off and we did only on a few due to the weather. Great experience otherwise and we would do it ago!
    I give it 5 stars!

  • This was a perfect way to take in many of the sights in Washington, especially since we only had a limited time. We covered a lot of territory. We were able to disembark from the bus at various stops to take pictures, etc. My only complaint about this tour was that it was difficult to understand the guide at times so I think we missed out on a lot of information.

  • The tour was listed as 4 hours, but the driver came 20 minutes late without any notification and it ended 10 minutes earlier. The tour listed as one of its step off and visit locations the Jefferson Memorial. That did not happen. The driver stated he does not stop there, and that was one of the attractions my family was excited about seeing. We were given 30 minutes to get off and visit the Lincoln Memorial including the Vietnam and Korean Memorial and 30 minutes to visit the Franklin Roosevelt and Martin Luther King Memorial. Both should have been 40 minutes --especially if you were not quick on your feet, which could have happened if tour bus was not late and arrived early. I understand this tour was an overview, but those 2 spots needed to be 40 minutes. The rest of the tour was tour was as expected. Our driver was personal, well informed, and engaging. All in all, the tour was good, but could not rate it as excellent or above average based on my comments. JPL

  • This tour with Zohery Tours was by far, the highlight of my week in D.C!!! I went on the daytime tour, as well as the night tour and both were amazing! The owner and tour guide, Ali has an AMAZING amount of knowledge of Washington D.C., the history of the city, where to go and what to do, and literally anything else you would ever want to know about this town! He also went WAY out of his way to accommodate his guests, by arranging alternate drop-offs, asking his guests about their preferences of what to spend the most time on, etc. He even spent almost 2 hours on his personal phone between stops, trying to help me find alternate hotel accommodations because mine were falling through at the last minute! Ali made such an impression on me, not only as a tour operator in a town where tours are a dime a dozen, but as an amazing and compassionate person! Thank you for your kindness Ali and please know that I will always consider you a friend! I will be back soon, next time with my family, and we will definitely be on your bus!

  • Great tour! Everything on time, visiting great places and super good tour guide! Totally recomend this tour!

  • The tour was great however, maybe a little more enthusiasm in the commentary to keep my kids awake

  • Ali is very knowledgeable. Lots of information and history facts. He needs to speak a little slower. Saw almost everything that there was to see in DC in a few hours. Value! Thanks , Ali.

  • Our guide was very informative and nice!
