Half-Day Grand Tour of Washington DC

117 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.

*April 2019 I don’t know if it is thrill there, but the baseball exhibit was very interesting and engaging for both adults and kids. The rest of the library was also interesting, but nothing really stood out to me aside from the baseball exhibit.

The LOC is a gem. If you have time, check out one of the many free events, whether they're concerts or lectures. Gloria Gaynor even performed there for a 70s disco event! And sign up to get a library card!

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.
