Half-Day Grand Tour of Washington DC

88 reviews
Avoid the stress of renting a car and navigating on your own on this bus tour of Washington DC. A guide provides entertaining historical context, as you pass more than 50 of the city’s iconic landmarks, including the White House, Capitol Building, Lincoln Memorial, and National Mall. Unlike most city bus tours, a small group size ensures you have the guide's full attention for questions and comments.

Enjoyed a fabulous morning at the Library of Congress in February 2020. Beautiful building, amazing collection and the free and regular tours are so informative. Loved being able to get a laminated library card ( optional) which is valid for a few years. I treasure this. The visit was a true highlight of Washington DC. ❤️

My 2nd grader had the opportunity to meet his favorite author Dav Pilkey, it was a great evening. They also have storytime for younger children. However if you have the chance to go by yourself it is worth the visit, take the train to Union Station and walk a few blocks to Library of Congress, such a beautiful scenario in DC.

One of the most beautiful building interiors in Washington DC and is often over looked by tourists. Don't forget to get your Library of Congress Card

Not only have amazing movies been shot in our National Library, but once or twice a year, the floor of the library opens to ANY / ALL those who wish to see the true knowledge of our Great American Nation. Anyone can visit and obtain a library card, can study where great leaders thoughts were/are captured on paper, and see that knowledge and our past is TRUE POWER.

We did a 'drive by' of this amazing building on our way from visiting the U.S. Capitol to lunch. I wish we'd had a lot more time than the half hour we spent walking through. The building itself and the beautiful architecture was incredible, but there were several exhibits that my husband and I wanted to see. Unfortunately, by then, our kids were very tired and museumed-out. Will definitely go back here and make it one of our first stops of our next DC trip.
