Dynamite Day Tour: Small-Group DC Bus Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Discover the major points of interest in Washington, DC on this guided, 7-hour, sightseeing tour. This small-group bus tour visits many of the famous monuments and memorials, like the White House, the Washington Monument, the National Mall, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, and many other popular locations. A number of lunch options (own expense) is available.
  • Explore with a guide: Hear little-known stories about each location
  • Comfortable tour van saves hours of walking
  • Two-part tour: Enjoy a midday break with the group
  • Small group ensures a personalized experience
What to Expect
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.
