Stained glass windows, ornately carved stone and pointed arches make this landmark a national treasure.

Your tour continues on to Georgetown, a historic and picturesque neighborhood home to one of America’s finest universities.

Visit the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, which is guarded 24 hours a day, 365 days a year by Tomb Guard Sentinels and witness the ceremonial Changing of the Guards.

On your way to and from Arlington National Cemetery, you’ll cross the majestic Arlington Memorial Bridge and see the Pentagon. The Pentagon, the headquarters of the Department of Defense, is a city in itself with 23,000 employees.

My kids get bored sitting on a bus for a few minutes but that never happened on this tour. Their eyes were wide opened as we pasted the Lincoln Memorial and The White House. The guide was very kids friendly and made our kids have a blast, they couldn’t wait to go back on the tour the next day.

Reviewed on 8/20/2014, By lisa25
I lived in DC for most of my life and I’ve been on many tours before, but none were as informative as City Sights DC. The tour guides where all so intellectual and knowledgeable in the subjects at hand. We discussed topics such as the history of the white house and the legacy of the supreme court.
