About The Washington DC Land & River Monuments Tour:

The splendour of DC doesn't just derive from its monument lined boulevards and beautiful public parks, but the gently ebbing waters of the Potomac River. This sightseeing tour by DC Trails combines the best of both over six captivating hours. Start by joining your coach outside the Holiday Inn Washington at 10:00, where you'll meet your professional guides and fellow travellers. From here it's onto the most recognised monuments and districts of the national capital.

Ride along the length of the National Mall and Pennsylvania Avenue, taking in classics such as the US Capitol, Library of Congress, White House and War Memorials. You'll also travel though the historic streets of Georgetown, a portion of the tour which encompasses Washington National Cathedral, Embassy Row, the Naval Observatory, and DuPont Circle.

Following on from the tour bus itinerary you'll be placed in the hands of the Potomac Riverboat Company for a sightseeing cruise by double decker catamaran. The boat, nicknamed Miss Mallory, will ferry her passengers past the shoreline of Old Town Alexandria, Fort McNair, the Kennedy Centre, and much more. Both tours feature live commentary.
