Visit Washington, D.C., from New York City on a full-day trip exploring iconic landmarks and memorials, including the White House and Arlington National Cemetery, with free time to explore the National Air and Space Museum. With included transport to D.C. and a guided coach tour, just sit back and enjoy the ride as your guide brings each destination to life. Book early; this tour often sells out.

What to Expect

Make your way to Times Square for an early morning departure from New York City to Washington, D.C. Take a nap on the bus or just enjoy the view.

Once you arrive in D.C., see the top highlights on the National Mall, including the Washington Monument, Capitol Hill, and the Lincoln Memorial. You will experience the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial, White House and other major sights.

Visit President John F. Kennedy’s grave site at Arlington National Cemetery, and continue to the National Air and Space Museum, with free time to explore exhibits on the history of flight.

After a full day of sightseeing, board the bus for a return trip to New York City, where this tour concludes at the original departure point.

A good trip, somehow incomplete though

An interesting tour into DC key sites - Lincoln Memorial, White House, Arlington Cemetery, Veterans Memorials, etc. As it was my second trip, I was a bit disappointed on how briefly everything was covered (absolutely aware of time constraints!), I just felt other tour groups...More

It’s a small bus that we were on so may not have room for the bigger suitcase. You could ask the company direct to see if that can help. There may be other companies that use bigger bus.
