After picking up passengers at both locations the sightseeing experience truly begins. Roll down the length of National Mall where - as well as the glowing spire of the Washington Monument - you'll be treated to the sight of a gently radiating Smithsonian Castle, the beaming dome of the Capitol Building, and the memorials of West Potomac Park.
Every step of this two hour tour is narrated, so expect to hear numerous fascinating tales and historical facts. These will help piece together the story of the city, from its earliest years to the present day, and all the famous moments in-between.
