Know More about this tour


During this tour you will be able to see the infamous White House, the official residence and workplace of the president of the United States. It has been the residence of every U.S president since John Adams in 1800.
You will also see the grand Lincoln Memorial, a monument which was constructed to honor President Abraham Lincoln, the 16th United States president. The monument towers over the Reflecting Pool, in the western end of the National Mall.
You will pass by the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, a 2-acre national memorial which pays tribute to the members of the U.S Armed Forces who fought in the Vietnam War and were killed or missing in action. The memorial is made up of three separate parts: the Three Soldiers statue, the Vietnam Women’s Memorial and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial War, considered the most popular feature.
Another memorial you will come across is the Korean War Veterans Memorial. Dedicated on July 27, 1995, the memorial honors the 5.8 million Americans who served in the U.S armed services during the three-year period of the Korean War.
You will also see the National World War II Memorial, a memorial of national significance which commemorates the Americans who served in the U.S armed forces during WW2 and all who supported the war effort from home, The Second World War is the only 20th Century event commemorated on the National Mall’s central axis.
During your tour you will also see what is known as the Washington Monument, an obelisk built to commemorate George Washington, the first President of the United States.
After a break for lunch, visit some of the most important places in DC, including the stunning exteriors of the Supreme Court, the Library of Congress, and Capitol Hill.
