Experience a Fully Guided Tour of Two of the Nation’s Capitals

Your day begins with an early morning departure from Times Square in Manhattan, where you’re greeted by your professional, bilingual tour guide for the day.

Your first destination is the nation’s current capital, Washington, DC. Here we will visit the Iwo Jima Memorial, which 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 will 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, the home and office of the U.S. President, and the Capitol Building, the 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.

From Iwo Jima Memorial to the Rocky Steps via the White House, Capitol Building, Liberty Bell and Independence Hall

Your next destination is the first-ever U.S. capital, chosen during the Revolutionary War: Philadelphia, PA. You will 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 will 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 States. 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 a unique experience you cannot miss!
