Washington DC Day Tour from New York City [ENGLISH]
Washington DC Day Tour from New York City [Spanish]

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.

Bus was terrible

Washington DC is a really great city and the weather was amazing, hence 3***. However it doesn't change the fact the bus was terrible, so inconvenient and so old it should be forbidden to offer such vehicle to customers. Our guide not impressive at all.
