What to Expect
Ready to take on the busiest area in DC? Skip the crowded sidewalks and slide into an all-electric Red Roadster for a 2+ hour guided tour around the United States' capital with a local. The Red Roadster is a personal and comfortable way to tour the National Mall. It's equipped with roll-down clear siding windows that's perfect for sightseeing in the rain or wind. The vehicles are also equipped with warm blankets in the winter for your comfort.
The National Mall tour starts at the L’Enfant Plaza metro, where the guide takes you back to the city’s origins and provides you with some tips for exploring the city on your own. You'll work your way through the Smithsonian area, discussing the best exhibits in each — make sure you bring a notebook because you’ll want to take notes to remember for later!
Next, the tour breezes past the Washington Monument, Holocaust Museum, and Bureau of Engraving and Printing on your way to the beautiful Tidal Basin. Here, your guide will entertain you with the stories behind the watery oasis and the Jefferson Memorial. You also have the opportunity to hop out and explore on your own! The tour does this twice: at the FDR and MLK memorials, as well as at the Lincoln Memorial. At both locations, head out on foot with tips and insider information from your guide, and spend time inside these amazing memorials. Afterward, cruise along the scenic Potomac River with views of Arlington Cemetery before seeing the World War I and World War II memorials.
The tour continues through American history with a drive past the White House. Finally, feast your eyes on the buildings of Capitol Hill and learn the history behind them. Upon conclusion of the tour, ask your guide for an amazing spot for lunch before exploring the rest of DC on your own! From the Supreme Court to the Smithsonian, this DC tour leaves the oversized tour buses behind to deliver you straight into the heart of Washington.
This is a small group tour with a maximum of 7 persons per vehicle. Your seat is guaranteed, however, seating is on a first come first served basis, so we cannot guarantee that you will be able to sit with everyone in your party. Sometimes, the tour will use more than one vehicle, and these travel together throughout the tour.
