Washington DC Twilight Tour
From US$45.00
Overview

The crowds in Washington DC during the day can be unbearable. Skip the daytime sightseeing of the U.S. capital city and, instead, travel by bus during this Washington DC twilight tour. You'll see more than 15 attractions, including the Lincoln Memorial, Tidal Basin, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial. Plus, make a photo stop at the White House while it's lit up at night.

What to Expect
Meet for this 3.5-hour Washington DC tour in L'Enfant Plaza. Board a bus, equipped with bathrooms for your convenience, and head out through the U.S. capital city with a guide.

Your tour passes by many top Washington DC attractions, including the National WWII Memorial, Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, the Tidal Basin, Lincoln Memorial, Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial, National Archives, and the J. Edgar Hoover Building.

Your guide tells you about landmarks and U.S. history as you cruise through the city streets, taking in awesome views in the evening. You’ll also make a stop at the White House for a photo op of the building lit up.
