FAQ – New York To Washington DC Tour

How many days do you need to tour Washington DC?

The amount of days you might need to explore Washington DC can vary based on your personal interests and available free time. If you wish to explore the city in a single day, be prepared only to scratch the surface. Washington, DC, is quite extensive, so you'll need to allocate more time to fully explore its iconic sites and attractions. However, even a one-day visit can be meaningful if you book a guided tour and prioritize the sites that matter most to you.

What are the most popular sites in Washington DC?

The capital of the United States is brimming with notable landmarks and attractions. But here are some of the most popular and unmissable sites. The U.S. Capitol, an essential stop for those interested in American government and history. The White House, the official residence of the United States President and a well-known symbol of American democracy. Then we have the Lincoln Memorial, a majestic monument that honors Abraham Lincoln and features his famous statue. And let's not forget Smithsonian Museums, a world-class museum institution that includes the National Air and Space Museum, the National Museum of American History, the National Museum of Natural History, and many more.

What is the cheapest month to visit Washington DC?

Washington DC is a destination that attracts tourists throughout the year. Therefore, the prices are usually the same, no matter the season. Choose winter if you feel more comfortable exploring the city without high crowd accumulation. To make sure the weather conditions are suitable for sightseeing, visiting during summer will more likely be fitted for you. Our strongest recommendation is to travel during the shoulder season, March through April or late August through September are the best!

Highly recommended tour!

We had a great day spent on a tour with my family. The driver and tour guide were both very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. They both made the tour to our liking and showed us as many sites as possible. We booked a tour with a 1.5-year-old child and luckily, she has not experienced any problems. One day was sufficient for us to see the most important parts of Washington. Overall, it was a fantastic experience and a well-organized tour!


Top service and tour!

We truly had a great day trip from NYC to Washington DC. Our tour guide was fantastic, and he provided us with just the right amount of information and time to take it all in. This was a really educational day outside New York City and a great way to spend a day. A big shout-out to the driver today. He did a great job getting us around on a very busy traffic day and always made us feel safe. Well done to the team!
