Your VIP experience begins outside of the Library of Congress, where you’ll meet your guide for a 45-minute reserved entry and tour of the US Capitol Building. With your VIP experience comes no chance of the Capitol tour being sold out, so save time and gain immediate entrance to one of the most symbolically important and architecturally impressive buildings in the nation.

On your guided walking tour of this historic building -- home to the Senate and the House of Representatives -- watch a film about the history of government in the US and then peruse the building to learn about the country’s legislature. You’ll see the Crypt, the Rotunda and National Statuary Hall, and your tour begins and ends at the Capitol Visitor Center.

Next, you will join up with our fantastic city sightseeing tour on a comfortable, air conditioned coach. See all of DC’s major monuments and memorials up-close; take about 10 to 15-minutes at each stop to hop off the coach for walks with your guide. Highlights include the outside of the White House, Washington Monument, the World War II, Vietnam Veterans, Lincoln, Jefferson, Korean War Veterans and US Navy Memorials, and Iwo Jima Statue.

Next, it’s time for a leisurely cruise down the Potomac River (mid-March to mid-October only). Lunch is available on the boat (included). Sit back, relax and enjoy a cruise along the Potomac River with your guide, who’ll answer any questions you have. Off-season, visit the Fashion Centre at Pentagon City for shopping and lunch (price of lunch included).

After the sightseeing tour, you’ll gain reserved entrance to the National Archives Building. Your guide will lead you past long lines that often wrap around the building and allow you to enjoy immediate entrance for a unique chance to view the original Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution at your own pace. These historic documents are housed in the Rotunda for the Charters of Freedom. You’ll also have access to the Public Vault permanent exhibit gallery, the Lawrence F O'Brien temporary exhibit gallery, the Boeing Learning Center and the William G McGowan Theater.

Your tour concludes at the National Archives Building.
