Itinerary

Your Washington DC in a Nutshell Tour starts from the Old Post Office Building on Pennsylvania Avenue NW, between 11th and 12th Streets. The shuttle will pull up in front of the Benjamin Franklin statue. The backup location (in case Pennsylvania is closed for a parade) is at 11th & F Street NW in front of ESPN Zone.

Of all the guided Washington DC Tours this is the most comprehensive. Traveling in a comfortable motor coach, you will visit all of the major Washington DC monuments and view the best the US capital has to offer. Your English-speaking guide will hop off the coach with you at every stop.

Your tour includes the following stops:

The Old Post Office: This fine 1890s building has a dramatic granite tower and interior glass-roofed atrium.

US Capitol: These impressive 19th century neoclassical buildings house the meeting chambers of the House of Representatives and the Senate.

Washington Monument: This magnificent memorial to George Washington, first US President, took 36 years to build and was completed in 1884.

World War II Memorial: This monument honors the 16 million who served in the armed forces of the US. More than 400,000 had died and many had supported the war effort from home.

Jefferson Memorial: This neoclassical building is dedicated to Thomas Jefferson, an American Founding Father and the third President of the United States.

Franklin D Roosevelt Memorial: This is a memorial to FDR, 32nd President of the United States, who served four terms in office from 1933 to 1945.

Pentagon City Mall: Stop for lunch (cost not included) at one of the busiest malls in the US. You’ll find many tempting options to choose from.

Vietnam Memorial: This sombre memorial, dedicated to those who served in the Vietnam War, attracts around 3 million visitors each year.

Lincoln Memorial: It was built not only to honor the 16th President, Abraham Lincoln, but also the creation, in the US, of a truly free, democratic society.

Korean Memorial: Dedicated on July 27, 1995, this memorial is to US citizens who served in the Korean war (1950 -1953).

Iwo Jima Memorial: Commemorating the battle of Iwo Jima (February 23rd, 1945), this depicts bronze statues of US Marines raising the American Flag on Mount Suribachi.

White House: Home to the President of the United States, the neo-classical sandstone mansion has 6 stories (many of which are underground), and covers 55,000 square feet.

The tour will drive across the Potomac River to Pentagon City Mall for a lunch stop at their food court.

In addition, you will see many more Washington DC monuments and attractions from the windows of the coach, although you won’t be stopping at them. They include Arlington Cemetery, FBI Building, National Archives, Union Station, Taft Memorial, Capitol Office Buildings, Washington Mall, World War I Memorial, Arlington House, National Cathedral, National Gallery of Art, Natural History Museum, Bureau of Engraving & Printing, Holocaust Museum, The Pentagon, Theodore Roosevelt Island, Kennedy Center, Watergate Complex, Georgetown University, Naval Observatory Dupont Circle and D.C.
