Private Washington DC & Philadelphia Day Trip from NYC

Quick Details

Private Tour Price / person

Your tour begins in Washington D.C, with a visit to the Iwo Jima Memorial. This place honors the U.S. Marines by depicting a famous photograph taken during World War II, the raising of the American flag at the battle of Iwo Jima, Japan. You´ll continue with a visit to the impressive Lincoln Memorial, honoring the president who promoted the abolition of slavery in the United States.

Washington D.C. is home to all three branches of the U.S. government. During this tour, you stop for a classic outside view of the seat of two of them: the White House, home and office of the U.S. President, and the Capitol Building, home of the U.S. Congress and where the laws of this country are made. Your visit to Washington concludes with free time for lunch on your own and a possible short visit to one of the Smithsonian museums, the world-famous National Air and Space Museum.

Your next destination is the first-ever U.S. capital, chosen during the Revolutionary War: Philadelphia, PA. You arrive directly at Philadelphia’s historic Old City neighborhood. Your first stop is at the Independence National Historical Park, where your guide leads you on a brief walking tour.

You´ll have the opportunity to see some of the main historical sites such as the Liberty Bell, the famous symbol of America’s independence, and Independence Hall, the birthplace of the United State. It was within its walls that America’s founding documents — the Declaration of Independence (July 4, 1776) and Constitution — were debated and adopted.

Your visit to Philadelphia concludes with a stop at the Rocky Steps, in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, where you have an opportunity to re-enact the famous scene from the 1976 movie by ascending to the top of the steps. Definitely, an experience that you can not miss!
