A great opportunity to see another of the world's great cities all in one trip!
If you are in New York and do not anticipate being back in this part of the world anytime in the near future, then this tour is a prime opportunity to see another of the world's great cities in the same trip. The day trip to Washington is certainly a lot easier than packing everything up, traveling to Washington from New York, checking into another hotel, unpacking, orienting yourself to the city, etc.
We drive 4 hours down to Washington; sightsee around the city for 7 hours (see itinerary section); and travel 4 hours back to New York. It is a long, but memorable day. All of the major iconic sights can be seen in this time.
The Washington DC tour includes:
-US Capitol Tour
-Visit to the Library of Congress and Supreme Court
-White House Walk-By
Visits to the following monuments:
-Martin Luther King

Absolutely amazing 17-hour tour of Washington DC from New York! Ronald was waiting at our hotel bang on time, in a clean, spacious, luxury vehicle and his driving throughout the whole day was to a very high standard. His knowledge of Washington DC and American history and politics was outstanding. He knew on-street parking locations at or very near all the major sights, and knew exactly where we needed to go to see everything and to take the best photos. Thank you Ronald!
