Exploring Washington DC's monuments and memorials in an open-sided, electric cart means you can enjoy unobstructed views from beginning to end. Traveling with a small group and guide, you'll cover popular destinations in the heart of DC, and hear stories throughout the tour. Stop to visit a series of highlights including the Lincoln Memorial, the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, the White House, and the city's war memorials.
What to Expect
Make your way to L'Enfant Metro Stop, an easy-to-reach location in central Washington DC. Board an open-air, eco-friendly eCruiser vehicle, and then zip toward the Smithsonian Museum, the first stop on the tour.

Weave through a cluster of historic monuments, taking in the Jefferson and Lincoln Memorials. Also see the Washington Monument, whose blinking light is among one of DC's most recognizable sights. Next, head to the National World War II Memorial, the Korean War Veterans Memorial, and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

Finish with two of the top destinations in DC, the White House and Capitol Hill, home of the United States Congress. Your guided tour concludes at the original departure point.

This is the Tour to Book!

Cruising around the Mall in nifty little red electric 8-passenger vehicles (with excellent visability) was the unique level of 'non-bus' excitement we were seeking, but when we added in the articulate knowledge of our driver/guide, Montie Martin, we hit the 5-Star level of review! Montie...More
