Come one, come all for the best tours featuring everything about our fine nation! In the amazing city of Washington D.C., touring our nation's capital has never been easier or more convenient!
Want to tour the city on a Segway? Well here is your chance. Enjoy the District of Columbia while having the flexibility of traveling comfortably on two wheels. If you’d like something a little more traditional, try a bike tour. There are many bike tours that show off the beauty of D.C. It's a great workout and a wonderful memory all rolled into one. Both Segway and bike tours will take you through luxurious parks and the historic downtown of the District of Columbia.
If Segways and bikes are not quite your style, then enjoy the capital by way of a double decker bus. Double decker buses are family friendly and provide an enjoyable and comfortable experience. These tours will take visitors by the White House, Capitol Hill, the Jefferson Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial and even Ford's theatre.
Want to plan your vacation on foot? That is not a problem. There are many walking and self-guided tours offered throughout D.C. Honor our country’s veterans by walking the grounds of the Arlington National Cemetery.
If you are feeling especially patriotic or nostalgic you will enjoy touring the Smithsonian Museums. The Air and Space Museum features famous aircrafts from many different eras. The Natural History Museum has a large diamond collection and many fossils that tourists enjoy on a daily basis. Don’t forget the American History Museum, which houses Judy Garland's famous ruby red slippers from the “Wizard of Oz” film.
Interested in historical and political tours? Touring historic buildings and homes might be the perfect option for you. The Old Stone House has daily guided tours and is the oldest privately owned home currently in D.C. Interested in the Capitol Building? Step inside and enjoy this famous historical landmark. There are other historical tours offered to the public at the White House, Dumbarton House, Sewall-Belmont House and many other locations.
