    What to Expect
    Redeem your 48-hour bus voucher at Union Station, where your sightseeing tour begins around Washington DC by double-decker bus. You'll have access to two loops. 

    Hop on and off at the numerous stops to explore at your own pace, and choose one to five attractions and activities including Newseum, the International Spy Museum, Madame Tussauds DC, the National Ferry, a Myths and Misconceptions Walking Tour, National Geographic Museum or a daylong bike rental to further explore the city. There's no need to select which of these sights and activities you'd like to do in advance — allowing you maximum flexibility.

    Listen to live commentary on board as you pass DC landmarks such as the White House, US Capitol, Jefferson Memorial, Ford's Theatre and Arlington National Cemetery. You can see the Washington Monument and more lit up after dusk on a narrated night bus tour.
