Half-Day Grand Tour of Washington DC

86 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.

I have been to the Newseum about 4 times and each time they continue to amaze me with their incredible artifacts, educational resources, and incredible work they put into their museum! They have a great gift shop, incredible exhibits, and it's a place for everyone! One of the times I went, they had Lady Gaga's meat dress and that made my entire trip, lol :)

When I went to visit the Newseum, I was the news editor of my college newspaper. It was so important to learn about journalism, politics, and this country’s history. It was the best museum I have visited. It’s a shame it’s closing/closed.

My husband, kids (14, 12, 10) and I thought this was one of the best stops in DC. Their exhibit about the Berlin Wall was incredible, as well as the 9/11 World Trade Center bombings. So sorry that it has closed, and hope it will reopen in a new space soon so others can see the great exhibits!

If you stop at every exhibit, you'll never finish in a day. Also, it might be wise to go later in the day. Place was packed with school kids, who were not being supervised. However, the content is amazing! I'm very, very glad I was able to make it here during this visit.

Great architecture, but bad museum design. In radio, dead air is not good; in print, to much white space is not good; here there was too much space wasted. When I saw the previous version in Virginia, I was astounded. As a former journalist, war correspondent and crusading investigative reporter, this monument to the first amendment was an essential pilgrimage before they shuttered and relinquished the structure to Johns Hopkins. I was disappointed by the reliance on hi-tech and the limited space to display more items.
