The Capitol and The White House

Before leaving you will get to visit the Capitol, where the U.S. Congress meets, and of course, you’ll see the White House, the residence and workplace of the President of the United States.

The bus will embark on a last tour of the city, so have your cameras ready to snap the panoramic views. You’ll be back in New York in the early evening, usually around 08:00 p.m. but it can be later as well due to traffic so don’t plan anything for that evening.

Eric’s Tip: “This day trip is jam-packed so there is not a lot of time to really stroll around Washington and certainly not to shop. It’s a good way to see a lot of the city in a short amount of time and to learn about the history of the United States. If you have a few more hours to spare, you can also add Philadelphia sightseeing to your day. Do the two capitals in one day by choosing this day trip to Washington D.C. and Philadelphia.
