TOUR THE BEST OF DC + ARLINGTON

Our convenient and continuous tour loop takes you to the BEST of DC, which as the authorized tour company of Arlington National Cemetery, now includes a tour of one of our nation’s most hallowed grounds. We hold all of our tours to the highest of standards, and we’re committed to providing you with the best sightseeing experience possible.

BLUE TOUR LOOP

Our tour traverses the National Mall with stops at several Smithsonian Museum buildings. You’ll have a chance to explore the National Monuments and Memorials (Lincoln, FDR, Washington, and Jefferson), as well as the United States Capitol and the Supreme Court buildings. From the Lincoln Memorial, you’ll head over the Potomac River and through Arlington National Cemetery, where you’ll have the opportunity to honor the brave men and women who’ve given their lives defending the ideals of our great nation. Witness the Changing of the Guard, visit John F. Kennedy’s gravesite, and explore the Memorial Amphitheater and Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

RED TRANSFER (10-15 MINUTE RIDE)

Arlington National Cemetery requires that we use special tour vehicles to navigate the grounds. Therefore, a transfer of tour vehicles is required for the Arlington portion of our tour. Our red transfer shuttle will pick you up at the Lincoln Memorial (Stop #11) and drop you off at the cemetery (Stop #12) where you’ll then hop aboard our Arlington National Cemetery touring vehicles for your tour of the cemetery grounds. When you’re finished at Arlington, catch the shuttle again and we’ll take you back to the Lincoln Memorial so you can continue your tour of the city.

HOP ON & OFF ALL DAY

Your tour includes all-day on-and-off privileges on our tour loop. As you tour the nation’s capital you’ll have the opportunity to get off the trolley and visit many memorials, museums, and historical points of interest; as well as opportunities for shopping and dining throughout the city. Tour DC at your own pace, and trolleys will come by each stop at least every 30 minutes. Hold on to your Boarding Pass, though, because it’s your ticket to rejoin the tour at any designated stop.

TROLLEY SCHEDULE

Tours begin daily at 9:00 am and run until our last re-boarding at 4:45 pm. Please note that Washington DC is a city of parades, festivals, motorcades and of course, traffic. These events may cause delays in the arrival of a trolley at your stop or result in having to take an alternate route.

WE SPEAK YOUR LANGUAGE

Visiting with friends and family that don’t speak English? Our new exclusive foreign language app is here to help! Built with GPS tracking technology, you can now enjoy live narration in 7 different languages – Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Italian, Chinese, and Japanese. Once you purchase your ticket, we’ll provide you with instructions on how to download the app. Then sit back, relax, and enjoy all the sights and sounds via a fully-narrated tour through our nation’s capital.
