Private Sightseeing Tour of Washington DC
The capital of the United States is a unique city, primarily because it was designed, planned and built specifically as the capital of our nation. The first thing that catches your eye is that Washington is different from New York, there are no high skyscrapers and "stone jungles", crowds of thousands and conspicuous bright advertising. But there are wide avenues, lots of trees and parks, monumental life-affirming architecture, scores of free museums and monuments, embassies, offices and memorials.
Complete private 6-hour sightseeing tour of Washington with professional licensed guide will help you get to know the US capital in comfort of our car as well as while walking around the streets of DC. It will start in the lobby of your hotel, and after the tour we’ll drop you off at the place of your request, either in one of the restaurants, or back in your hotel.
Here is what we will see and discuss:
— Library of Congress, the largest library in the world - we will get inside and enjoy one of the most beautiful building interiors in Washington;
— the building of the US Congress - the one on the $50 bill;
