Step by Step

The tour is a full day tour, so the departure time is early in the morning, the exact time will be confirmed once the booking is made. You will therefore enjoy approximately 17 hours out of New York, visiting Philadelphia and Washington DC.

Philadelphia was the first capital of the United States, while Washington DC is the current capital. As such, both cities have a lot of history that you will absorb perfectly when your tour guide explains it to you in a very entertaining way.

Moreover, this history is also represented in the buildings and monuments found in both cities. You will visit historical monuments starting with the most famous house in the world, the White House, where the President resides. You will be able to stop and enjoy the view outside this historic building. Continuing with politics you will visit the Capitol, home of the US Congress, and also the Lincoln Memorial dedicated to one of the most remembered presidents of the country, among many other monuments.

On the other hand, the tour throughout Philadelphia is brimming with the history of the country's beginnings. Your tour guide will walk you through Independence National Historical Park, the birthplace of the United States.

In total you will spend about 17 hours of your day learning, enjoying, photographing and admiring all the monuments and sights that these two cities have to offer. This tour allows you to optimise your time as much as possible without missing anything of these cities. Just hop on the bus and have fun doing something different than usual.

    I thought it was a great option to go on an excursion with my children and I, being in New York I didn't really know where we could go but in one day visiting Washington and Philadelphia by bus seemed interesting and they and I ended up loving the trip, of course it was the best thing to do.
