Meet your tour guide at 9am at the Grand Army of the Republic Memorial, just steps away from the National Mall. From the comfort of a tour van, you are able to visit more landmarks than you ever could on foot in a single day.

A local guide provides historical background and little-known anecdotes at each point of interest, including the White House, Jefferson Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, and various war memorials. Explore on your own for 10 to 20 minutes before moving on to the next location.

After a midday lunch break (own expense), continue to more of DC’s top landmarks. Unlike many inflexible full-day tours, the day's itinerary is subject to change depending on the preferences of the group. Around 4pm, arrive back to downtown DC and part ways with the guide.

A week in DC

We spent a full day touring the major monuments in and around the National Mall with Brian. Great guy and very knowledgeable about the city and monuments. Well worth the cost and probably the easiest way to see the monuments and memorials.

I do not know the location of the hotel or where the bus will or will not go. If you send them an email, I am sure they can answer your question best.
