Half-Day Grand Tour of Washington DC

88 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.

Wish we had several days to explore this museum. My 17 year old son and I loved it. It is first class! My son said he enjoyed it much more than the American History Smithsonian. Don't miss it.

There is so much to see here and it was very crowded. I think we spent more time waiting in line than we did seeing the exhibits. I have waited for years since this opened and was so disappointed that because of the crowd that I missed two floors of exhibits. I would have given a 5 had I been given access to see it all. Over an hour waiting to get in....over an hour to ride a tour of DV ride...30+ minutes to get into each section.

As with any DC area museum, it can become overwhelming spending so much time in a museum. That was the case with the Museum of the Bible. How much information can anyone take in? There becomes a saturation point at which everything starts to “bounce off”. And with the fact that this is dedicated to one specific theme, which is the Bible, maybe this saturation point comes quicker. Having said that, this museum is well worth a visit. The various dimensions of the Bible are covered more than imaginable. How could one book in history be represented by such a large museum? There was no stone unturned in considering the displays and presentations throughout each floor which, by the way, were excellent. So, a strong recommendation is to do your research before you go. Consider a priority list for what looks most interesting. Then as the day goes on and the museum’d out effect takes place, your “best of” list will be completed. Then consider a second visit. Recommended.

We were there for 6 hours and just barely saw everything! Overall I was very impressed, especially since I was expecting fundamentalism that I would have to take with a grain of salt (I'm a Presbyterian, we're pretty progressive!), but instead I found it to be largely academic in nature. My main disappointment was that there just isn't much Jesus in it! It was very heavily Old Testament, I think Jewish visitors would get nearly as much out of it as Christian ones. Please, can't they add just a few more things about Christ?? Nevertheless, the level of interactivity was astounding, especially what they were able to offer still during thanks to souvenir styluses. The artifacts there are also breathtaking.

Beautiful museum with so much to see! We really enjoyed visiting during the pandemic because it wasn’t crowded at all. Felt very safe there. Arrive early because it will take you all day. We only purchased the admission ticket. Nothing else extra. Felt like we definitely received our money’s worth. Restaurants are located here as well so you can spend the whole day in one spot. Visit on a Sunday. DC is a ghost town and you can find free or almost free parking!
