This route is perfect for a sub-60 minute introduction to Washington DC’s must-see sights along the national mall, taking guests past the monuments that you read about in history books! It is a relatively quick route, but is rich with history and amazing views.
The tour will begin in the middle of downtown Washington, DC, at one of the many roundabout circles famous to the district, Logan Circle. We will head south towards the National Mall, as we learn about L’Enfant’s city planning commissioned by the first US President, George Washington, along the way. The Washington Monument will be our first stop along the mall, where you will have a view of the Capitol building off in the distance directly east, the White House directly North, and the Lincoln Memorial directly West. We will next make our way to the Tidal Basin, home to the Thomas Jefferson Memorial, and take our next stop at one of the newest and most stunning additions to the DC monuments, the Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial. Shortly thereafter, we will reach the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, where we can walk right up to the larger-than-life Abraham Lincoln statue, and then make our way alongside the Reflecting Pool back up towards the White House, our last stop on the tour.
This tour will be a perfect introduction to Washington, DC and some of the most famous views that the capital city has to offer!
