Your VIP experience begins at the Neptune Fountain, outside the Library of Congress, where you'll meet your tour guide. You will be escorted across the street, to begin your reserved entry into the U.S. Capitol Building for a 45-minute tour of one of the most symbolically important and architecturally impressive buildings in the nation.
On your guided walking tour of the Capitol, you will see the Crypt, the Rotunda, and National Statuary Hall, and also spend time at the U.S. Capitol's Visitor Center. On your way to the next stop (the White House), you will pass the Newseum, the Canadian Embassy, and the National Gallery of Art. When arriving at the White House, you will see the Executive Residence of the President and his family, as well as the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. This stop also includes a walk past Lafayette Park, honoring the Marquis de Lafayette, leader of French revolutionary forces.
Your next stop is the National World War II Memorial. Along the way, you will see the headquarters of the American Red Cross, the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), and the Organization of American States (OAS) - representing the U.S., Canada, and 35 Latin American countries. Onward, to the Jefferson Memorial.
Once you have marveled at the Jefferson Memorial and have taken photos, we will visit the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Memorial – dedicated in 2011 – just across the Tidal Basin.
On the walking part of the tour, you will visit the Korean War Veterans Memorial, and via a nice stroll along the tree line, you will emerge in front of the Lincoln Memorial and Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
For a unique experience, this tour offers a leisurely cruise on the Potomac River (Seasonal: March 24 to October 16) with your guide, who will answer any questions you might have. Lunch will be provided onboard (cost included in the tour price). In the winter months, we forego the cruise and visit a local indoor market, for lunch.

Ralph was fantastic! He interacted with everyone in a personal way and made the tour great!
Hi Both last nights tour with Ralph & Ali and last weeks with JohnA & Cesar were excellent. We saw more than we could have done any other way and more importantly understood more of what we were looking at
First of all tour guide Nick was the best! We also enjoyed the bus, ac, waters! Overall well run. Downside was the capital tour. We waited in line more than anything else and saw very little. Also, the boat tour just seemed like you wanted to feed us off the bus and serving hot drinks with lunch was "uncool". Thank you.
We appreciated Nick's humor, enthusiasm, and knowledge. He made the daytime and the night tours very enjoyable.
Nick was a great guide. He made it a very educational and fun. We take many tours in our travels and he was one of the best we have had. We also left a good review with Expedia. If we come back to D.C. We will be requesting him.
Just wanted to let you know that I did leave a comment. I wanted to express how much my son and I enjoyed this tour. Ralph really made this special and it will be a huge memory for me!! Thank you!!!
John was a wonderful tour guide, his vast knowledge of the city (and every other topic) and booming laugh made for a great experience. The driver was safe and smooth as well, and the bus was comfortably air conditioned and in good condition.
We really enjoyed your tour and I am recommending USA Guided 2 all my friends Joey was very informative and a true delight thanks again.
Our twilight trip to see the Washington DC sights on Oct 2, 2016 was amazing. This was mostly due to our wonderful tour guide Ralph and driver Ozay. Ralph was very knowledgeable and added so much humor and personality to the tour. This made all the difference in the world to experiencing DC from his viewpoint. I will highly recommend this tour to everyone and advise them to book with Ralph! Thanks for a terrific experience!
We really enjoyed your tour and I am recommending USA Guided Tours to all my friends. Joey was very informative and a true delight thanks again.
Hi USA Guided Tours, I really want to say that I greatly enjoyed the tour in Washington, DC. I want to especially thank Sierra! Coming from Canada and not really knowing my surroundings, I arrived about 15 minutes late at the Library of Congress, therefore I called USAGT and Sierra made sure that I could join the group...Exceptional customer service and and special thanks to Sierra and Andre for helping me join the tour...I definitely recommend USAG Tours to others, the tour Guide Ralph was also very knowledgeable. Thank you for making my journey in DC a memorable one...
We toured with Christopher today and he was more than great! Very upbeat, courteous, and concerned about each individual. Give that guy raise!!!
We really enjoyed the tour, and our guide Christopher was fantastic. What a beautiful and peaceful way to see the glorious monuments. Thank you.
Thanks very much. At the last minute I was unable to go. I have a bad back and knees and decided I probably shouldn't. As it turned out my kid said that there was no way I couldn't handle it so it all turned out for the best. They loved the tour and the tour guide. My granddaughter who is 12 is the only person on the bus who could answer the questions about columns, i.e., Corinthian and Iconic. How about that? It was a perfect tour for them.
My sister & I took the tour with Nick, as guide, and Tony, as driver. My sister had a walker and could not get around very will. Nick and Tony were so nice with her, and of course with everyone. At Roosevelt's stop Nick even got a wheel chair to push my sister around. I must say the way both of the men helped her out was so nice and helpful it made the tour more fun for me. Loved all the info and jokes Nick gave us and the smooth way everything was handled. You have a great tour guide in Nick and Tony the driver was also a delight. When I get home I will tell all my friends about your company and give the info on how to set up the guide. Thank you again,
