Return Details

There are walking tours and there are bus tours, but this unique eCruiser tour of the Capitol provides an entirely new perspective on the city of Washington, DC and its many famous landmark locations.

Meet the guide and the rest of the small-group at L’Enfant Metro Stop, located at the corner of 7th and C Street. Then climb aboard a nifty eCruiser vehicle — an open-air, eco-friendly electric cart that offers as much in style as it does with substance.

The tour begins at one end of the famed Smithsonian Institution, the world's largest museum and research complex. Travel along through the historic monument areas, taking in the famous Jefferson, Lincoln and Washington Monuments, each a classic Washington DC icon in its own right. Then see the World War I, World War II, Korean War Veterans and the Vietnam Veterans memorial sites.

Next, see the most famous DC landmark of all, the White House, followed by Capitol Hill. Along the way, hear the historic stories and facts that make the city of Washington, DC one of the most popular tourist destinations in the United States.

Our guide was knowledgeable and well-informed. We learned so many new facts and gained new insight about DC even though we both had been there many times before. The ease of riding around the mall versus walking was also a plus.

A two hour electric cart DC tour on a 90F humid day was absolutely the correct choice. Our tour guide Peter The VA History Teacher was knowledgeable and thorough with the details on the monuments and the museums. His background as a history teacher he easily engaged my 9th, 7th, and 4th graders to think through the meaning behind the monuments and provides context when challenging their thoughts. Wish I had done this when I was in high school. I’d highly recommend this!
