Description

Break out of the Big Apple and spend a day cruising around Washington, D.C. on this full-day tour with transportation from Manhattan. Check out memorials dedicated to early presidents, visit Arlington National Cemetery, and get the chance to explore aviation legends at the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum.

Head to Times Square to hop aboard a comfortable shuttle and start the drive toward Washington, D.C., cruising through New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland on your way down. Spend the morning looking for politicians crisscrossing Capitol Hill, snapping photos of the Library of Congress, and catching up-close looks at the white columns around the White House.

Continue on for a march through the capital's marbled memorials, listening to fascinating commentary as you pass by presidential monuments dedicated to Jefferson and Lincoln, and spend some quiet time reflecting on the sacrifices of soldiers at the Iwo Jima and Vietnam Memorials and at Arlington Cemetery.

Wrap up your day with some free time to investigate the thrilling exhibits at the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum, home to Charles Lindbergh's Spirit of St. Louis, the command module used in the Apollo 11 NASA mission, and thousands of other airborne artifacts. When you're ready to head back, grab a comfortable return ride to NYC, parting ways with your guide beneath the neon lights of Times Square.

Super day. Very rushed but that is to be expected considering the distance that needs to be travelled and the many sites to be seen. When holiday schedule time is limited, it is well worth the journey and the short time at each place. The bus was spotless and the driver and guide friendly and informative. My only negative comment is that the online website does not mention that visitors to Arlington Cemetry need to have either US ID or Overseas passports to enter. Luckily we found out from a random conversation with a hotel guest before we left our hotel - otherwise we would have been bitterly disappointed.

We had a great time in Washington DC. Saw so much in the one day! The travel there and back was in a comfortable coach. We slept most of the time there and half the way back. So the travel went faster. Driver was an interesting character. And the tour guide very friendly and informative. Would recommend this trip to get out of New York for the day. You see so many famous sights!
