Half-Day Grand Tour of Washington DC

86 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.

My daughter and I enjoyed a trip to Georgetown today. We went to go to a specific store, and ended up walking up and down M street, then down to the canal. The canal was dry, but still fun to explore the area. It was very crowded, even in January and during COVID, I can’t imagine how crowded it gets during better times. Parking was a bit of a challenge, but eventually found a place for $5 a day, cheap for DC!

Although I travel to DC each year this is only the second time to visit Georgetown. It is the kind of place you would want to live and thrive in - full of energy yet dotted with beautiful trees, flowers and postcard front porches. The numerous cafes and restaurants are not as frequent now due to COVID but we still found wonderful spots to stop and people watch.

A Lovely Neighborhood in Washington I love Georgetown, and mostly due to its architecture, though its history is an important aspect too. On a gloomy March day, I strolled parts of Georgetown, and not for the first time. On previous trips, usually in the Autumn, I have walked the streets extensively, studying the architecture - some famous, but some just attractive. It seems that at least a quarter of the buildings are on the National Historical Register. With restaurants and shopping, plus several hotels, and then Georgetown University, there is much more to draw one to this neighborhood, but for me, on this Spring day, it was just the architecture, and a nice stroll. Normally, I will walk along the Georgetown Canal (an historical site, in its own right), but I stayed a little north. I only had about an hour for this part of my stroll, as I had to meet my wife back at our hotel, near the White House, so had quite a few blocks for my return trip. I would allow at least 4 hours to explore Georgetown, with all that it has to offer, and include lunch in one of the myriad restaurants, as well.

Lovely place to take a stroll, and plenty of shops, cafes, restaurants, etc., to grab a bite, have a drink, etc. Historic, beautiful, relaxing.
