Full description

Your day will begin with an early morning departure from Times Square in Manhattan, where you’ll be greeted by your bilingual tour guide for the day. After 4-5 hours, your first destination will be the nation's current capital, Washington, DC. Once there, visit the Iwo Jima Memorial and the Lincoln Memorial.

During the tour, stop for a classic outside view of the White House, home and office of the U.S. President, and the Capitol Building, home of the U.S. Congress. Your visit to Washington concludes with free time for lunch on your own and a possible short visit to one of the Smithsonian museums, the world-famous National Air and Space Museum. Your next destination, after a 3-hour journey, will be the first-ever U.S. capital, Philadelphia, PA. Visit its historic Old City neighborhood and the Independence National Historical Park where your guide will lead you on a brief walking tour. Then, ascend to the top of the Rocky Steps before returning to Times Square in Manhattan.

Everything was very good, the driver, the guide guy (so friendly and helpful). The only issue was the address shown on the ticket, it says 239w 42th st, New York, NY 10036, and I've been there 4:50am and i didn't see anybody, right away a saw the ticket again and i saw another address two times square, 714 seventh av. Between 47th and 48th streets and i had to take a taxi to get there if not i coul lose the bus. Thanks to God the bus was waiting, but should be good the company fix that problem.

Interesting tour with more or less short stops. Someone who likes to look at buildings etc. should keep their hands off it. Who is enough to see the White House, the Lincoln Memorial and more in an average of 10-15 minutes will get their money's worth. Most of our tour was in Spanish as we were the only ones who didn't speak Spanish. Nevertheless, the guide took the time to repeat everything relevant in English. In advance he even asked if that was okay with us. The bus was comfortable, offers WiFi and the option of charging electronic devices via USB. In and of itself, we were very satisfied with the tour and can recommend it with a clear conscience.

Washington tour guide was excellent, a lot to cover for short time

from the meeting place-very busy but quite safe, double checked for tickets but not ID. The bus- clean and ok for comfort, got toilet but not enough support to be left clean by customer- a bit unsanitary. Excellent and safe drivers, respect everyone as adult. Bi-lingual tour guide is excellent, except some people just don't get it. So sometimes we lost time by waiting on them. Short but informative visit to the center with 10 minute video. Lots and lots of walking, sometimes very unforgiving to older generations, specially on a hot and humid day. No options to eat at chinatown, wherein, food is a little cheaper and interesting. No megaphone for everyone to hear what instruction was being given, so sometimes the older generations makes mistake by not being on time. Only a black open umbrella was used as a point or mark to head back to the bus or where the guide will be at a certain time. Bill, a veteran, our tour guide was excellent- historically more believable than the statue/building
