Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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.

The tour was the highlight of our visit. Piotr was knowledgeable and funny. He added interesting tidbits about the buildings along the route. We were educated and entertained the entire two hours.
Must see in person

Although I’ve seen these buildings on TV and magazines my whole life’s, it’s NOT the same. This is a must see for every American.
Loved the tour

Kevin did a great job of sharing history and technical aspects of the various memorials we visited. We stopped to walk around the FDR Memorial, the Martin Luther King Memorial and the Lincoln Memorial (which also has the Vietnam Veterans and Korean War Memorials). We stopped to take pictures at the Washington Monument. This was a fun way to see the picturesque aspects of the city and learn something about it.

Concept of the tour was great and the tour was good. The microphone of the tour guide needs to be upgraded to hear better. I was also hoping to hear a little more history especially at the 3 stops.
Experience DC in 2 hours - awesome!
, Dec 2021
Alain was a great guide - very knowledgeable, informative, exhibited the perfect amount of gravity and levity in telling super-interesting stories from the history of the US and the nation's capitol. My family and I were only in town for a few hours and we already felt like we had experienced so much of Washington DC! We would highly recommend this experience.

Our guide was fun, knowledgeable and super nice. Easy to find the starting location, plenty of time to stretch our legs at stops, hit all the major sights. It’s a great tour for teens too. Just enough info to keep them engaged but not overloaded. Awesome especially if you have limited time in DC. Dress warm in the winter, it was windy!
Awesome tour!
