Are you staying in New York for the first time and have a few extra days? Or perhaps this is your 2nd, or 3rd, time in the Big Apple and would like to visit something new?

One of the most requested activity is our Daily Excursion to the Capital Washington DC. Many NYC Visitors take advantage of the close proximity between these two cities to go explore the stately monuments and memorials found in the Capital. After all, as the Capital of the US, Washington has so much History and Anecdotes to share with us all. Plus, it's a great way to learn more about living in the US today, and other day-to-day facts such as politics, reforms, challenges and more.

Additional Description


With the Private Excursion to DC, you will be able to fully customize the Itinerary to better match your request. Typically, we will leave Manhattan at around 7 am in the morning heading South towards Washington DC. The trip will last from 4 hours and 20 minutes to 4 hours and 40 minutes depending on traffic, and we will stop halfway in Delaware for a Breakfast and bathroom break.

Once we arrive in DC, we will start our private tour of the city. There are many Attractions, Monuments, and Memorials we can visit, including:

  • MLK Memorial
  • FDR Memorial
  • Lincoln Memorial
  • Jefferson Memorial
  • The Mall and The Smithsonian Museums
  • Capitol Hill (exterior only)
  • The White House (exterior only)
  • Arlington National Cemetery with the JFK Gravesite
  • Downtown Washington DC
  • Georgetown
We will have around 4.5 hours in DC at our disposal, so we will have the time to really do a nice orientation tour of the city. After you book your Private Excursion, one of our dedicated Tour Guide will create an exclusive itinerary based on her / his experience, and then you can further tailor and customize it to your likes.

The Private Excursion to DC is a perfect gateway for families, friends, and groups traveling together to New York.

Irene was a FANTASTIC tour guide! She was so knowledgeable about the area and was so patient with all our questions. We stopped to use the bathroom and we got coffee halfway through, she was so kind! It was a pleasure learning about Brooklyn from you!

I’m the biggest fan of Fall activities, but haven’t had a chance to do anything beyond Apple Picking in NJ. I decided to take a last minute 2 day trip with a friend in Hudson Valley, but didn’t know where to start [...] Thankfully I was able to use New York Welcome to do the hard work for us [...]
