Description

from DC at Dusk Tour
Don’t miss the chance to experience Washington at night! This three-hour night tour takes you on a light-filled journey through historic Washington, DC, and nearby Northern Virginia.

The tour begins at the U.S. Navy Memorial at 701 Pennsylvania Ave. NW - halfway between the White House and the U.S. Capitol - and will bring you a unique and breathtaking look at our nation’s capital! On your way to the U.S. Capitol Building (the first stop) you pass the National Archives, which houses historic U.S. documents - the original Declaration of Independence, The
Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. In route, you will also see the Newseum, the Canadian Embassy, and the National Gallery of Art.

Emerging in sight will be the U.S. Capitol, where you’ll take in a memorable, two-mile long, panoramic view of the Smithsonian Museums (the largest museum complex in the world), and the Washington Monument (the tallest, freestanding stone structure in the world), flooded with lights –creating an unforgettable experience.

On your way to the White House, you’ll pass the U.S. Botanic Garden, Grant’s Memorial, The U.S. Navy Memorial, the Robert F. Kennedy Department of Justice, and the J. Edgar Hoover Federal Bureau of Investigation.

When arriving at the White House, you’ll not only see the Executive Residence of the President and his family, you will also see the Dwight D. Eisenhower Executive Office Building. This stop also includes a walk past Lafayette Park, honoring the Marquis de Lafayette, leader of French forces.

Next, 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, and the Organization of American States (OAS).

Once finished at the World War II Memorial, you will visit the beautiful Jefferson Memorial – which was built from 1938 – 1943 – on the Tidal Basin, lined with cherry trees that were a gift of friendship to the People of the United States from the People of Japan.

Across the Tidal Basin, you’ll visit the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Memorial – dedicated in 2011; quite a site, at night!

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 Memorials.

On the way to the last stop at the U.S. Navy Memorial, we visit the Iwo Jima Memorial, where you can take in a twinkling, and spectacular view of the Washington, DC landscape.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Best of DC tour. Washington DC is a remarkable place. This tour was an all-day tour that was made even better because of our fantastic guide, Henry. He was knowledgeable,funny, and friendly to all. His insights that you won’t necessarily read in your average tour book were outstanding. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Ali, our fantastic driver. His navigation through the busy city was a part of the great day. My wife and I highly recommend USA Guided Tours. Make sure you ask for Henry.

Valerie was a terrific guide for the tour, a wealth of information. Wasn't to fond of the MLK memorial, the FDR Memorial would have been better. And doing the WW2 Memorial T the end would be nicer so it was darker and the lighting is phenomenal at that memorial.

Henry was our tour guide and Ali was our driver. Both were very professional and personable. Henry was very knowledgable about all things DC. I learned a lot from his tour about DC today and will recommend him and your company to all. Henry is also very patriotic and partial to the Veteran's memorials. I was truly impressed with him. Thank you very much, Doug Leininger, Chippewa Falls, WI. US Army Veteran.
