Comfortable seats, with good visibility from both sides of the motor coach. The guides were very knowledgeable. If they stood at the door as tourists departed and offered a hand, if needed,would be nice. At aged 82 I would have appreciated such an offer.

Tickets for entry to all buildings should be provided once we board the bus.

ITINERARY

Do you want to know everything there is to know about Washington, DC? Then come explore the Nation's Capital with some of the most knowledgeable and experienced tour guides in town. You will feel like a VIP as you are escorted around the city in a luxury motor coach. Our guides will enthrall you with colorful stories from the past and little known facts about all the monuments, statues, buildings and locations in and around DC, as well as answer any questions you might have.

Receive a guided tour of the U.S. Capitol Building and stop for a photo opportunity outside the White House. The White House Visitor Center will allow you to see and feel what the interior of the actual White House looks like, without interrupting President Trump's schedule. Experience the beauty and grandeur of the World War II Memorial.


During your tour with Gray Line we will also take you to George Washington's beloved plantation, Mount Vernon. Tour the mansion and the Donald W. Reynolds Museum and Education Center. You'll want to pay your respects to the soldiers, statesmen and other American heroes buried at Arlington National Cemetery. Visit the Tomb of the Unknowns and be moved as members of the U.S Third Infantry perform the Changing of the Guard ceremony. The lectured Tram ride through Arlington National Cemetery will also stop at the Kennedy Gravesite. The Grand Tour would not be complete without visits to the Reflecting Pool, the Women in Military Service for America Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial, the Vietnam Memorial, and the Korean Memorial, and MORE!

There is no other experience in the city that brings together the history, culture and people that Washington, DC represents like Gray Line's Two-Day Grand Tour. This tour is truly a unique experience.

STOPS

DC In a Day:

U.S. Capitol Building -- group gets off and walks to Visitor Center Entrance. Guided tours of the Capitol (which we can no longer consistently book in advance, so it may require getting free, same-day passes on your own) begin at one of the Capitol Visitor Center’s orientation theaters with a 13-minute film, "Out of Many, One," which will take you on a journey through the United States' struggle to establish the world's first truly representative democracy and introduce you to the magnificent building that houses Congress. Once inside the historic Capitol, visitors will see the Crypt, the Rotunda, and National Statuary Hall. All tours begin and end at the Capitol Visitor Center.
