Continue to the White House, the official residence of the U.S. president. Take a walk past Lafayette Park. Visit the World War II Memorial, and the Jefferson Memorial, built on the Tidal Basin, lined with cherry trees that were a gift from the people of Japan. Across the Tidal Basin, see the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial. Take a walk to the Korean War Veterans Memorial, and on to the Lincoln and Vietnam Veterans memorials.
Overall great tour, very informative. The description says to bring headphones, but it does not specify that the headphones are only for translation from English to Spanish or Mung. We had a deaf person in our party, and there was no accommodation for her. Be aware, even though this is a bus tour, still lots of walking.

The route was a good one and the driver was professional. Overhanging branches were at times a problem. Vary the music. Add historical facts. At Washington Monument, discuss George Washington’s contribution rather than explosives that did not go off.

What people are saying about United States Capitol
Mr Maps was exceptional! His deep knowledge and love for his city were refreshing and enjoyable. He was kind, curtious, and treated his guests like they were coming into his own home. We learned a lot! He even held our 12 and 14 yr olds attention! (miraculous) We saw everything but one memorial (due to construction) and more!! Mr Maps deserves a standing ovation! Seeing the monuments at night was a really amazing experience. It gives you a completely different perspective and is moving.
What a fabulous experience! The days have been so hot so it was great to do the tour at night. The monuments looked beautiful at night and we highly recommend this tour with Tony! The driver (I’m sorry I can’t remember her name) was also great. She drove safely and got us close to all of the monuments. They also had cold water available for passengers because of the hot weather.
Deion was our guide and he was a delight. He was very insightful and energetic. My wife and myself enjoyed the tour and we plan our next visit to DC we will definitely book this touring company again.
So fun and learned lots of information about monuments. There will be walking so take comfy shoes. Get ready to take awesome pictures. Our guide Tony was very informative and nice. So worth it
Loved the views provided, excellent way to see the city
