Washington DC City Day Tour with Stops at 10 Top Attractions

174 reviews
Avoid the crowds that come with bus tours and instead explore Washington DC on a small-group van tour. With a maximum of 11 people on the tour, you don’t have to wait in line to get on and off the bus, granting you time to explore top attractions such as the National Mall and U.S. Capitol on short walking tours.

*April 2019 We didn’t have much time here, but I don’t think that much time is needed. I liked the American Museum of Natural History in New York better than this one. I know people come here to look at the Hope Diamond, but is really not that special.

One of the best in the world!!! Clean! Great line / people management. Nothing worse that not being able to enjoy yourselves because of overcrowded lines and mismanagement. That is the best part of this museum they understand this!!

There is so much to see here and I didn't finish seeing all the exhibits. You will find the famous T-Rex here and some of the films like Night at the Museum were taken in this museum too.
