You will visit the National Mall, Lincoln Memorial, and the Iwo Jima Memorial. Visitors will also see the White House and Capitol from the outside.

You will then head to Philadelphia for your second destination of the day. After a 3h ride, you will arrive directly at the historic Old City neighborhood. You will stop at the Independence National Historical Park. You'll discover the main historical sites such as Liberty Bell, the famous symbol of America's independence, and Independence Hall, the birthplace of the United States.

  • Très bonne journée, mais peu de temps pour visiter les musées. La visite se concentre sur le capitole, la Maison Blanche et le Lincoln mémorial.

  • Tres bonne organisation... bus très confortable aussi. Le circuit nous a permi de visiter l’essentiel de Washington. Guide très professionnel... juste un peu coincé ... pas tres sympathique ! Mais ça ne change rien on a beaucoup aimé ses explications ... pas facile Je pense de gérer un aussi grand groupe !
