Skip the long lines and be the first to enter the Washington Monument on this Viator Exclusive that can’t be booked anywhere else. Along with the reserved entry tickets to Washington DC's centerpiece, continue your 4-hour guided tour
aboard a comfortable coach to catch highlights including the White House, US Capitol Building, Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam Memorial and Martin Luther King Jr Memorial. Your experienced guide shares detailed commentary about the capital's key monuments and memorials on this exclusive tour.
Make your way to the Washington Monument to meet your guide for your 4-hour tour. Your guide provides you with reserved entry tickets for the first time slot, allowing you to skip the long lines and go directly into the monument without the crowds.
Head to the elevator, which takes you up to the 500-foot-high (152-meter) observation deck atop the landmark obelisk. From the observation deck you get breathtaking 360-degree views of Washington DC. After enjoying this perspective on the capital city, you can walk down a short flight of stairs to visit a small museum filled with historical artifacts.
Note the commemorative stones that line the interior walls of the obelisk on the stairwell. Donated by all fifty states, as well as other organizations, the stones are also visible when the elevator slows down to permit better viewing on the descent. In the elevator, a national park ranger provides commentary about the world's tallest obelisk monument.
Next, board a comfortable, air-conditioned coach to see DC’s most famous monuments and memorials up close. View the outside of the White House and the US Capitol Building—home to the United States Congress. Stop at the Vietnam Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Korean War Memorial and the Martin Luther King Jr Memorial. Enjoy about 10-15 minutes at each stop to walk around with your knowledgeable guide, who shares informative commentary about the sites and offers tips for great photo ops.
At the end of your comprehensive 4-hour tour, your guide returns you to Pennsylvania Avenue where you can continue to explore the nation's capital on your own.
