There’s no better way to tour Washington, DC, than with USA Guided Tours’ Open-Top Convertible Bus Tour! This unparalleled, open-air sightseeing experience features our glass-top, convertible Mercedes-Benz Sprinter—the first ever seen in the nation’s capital!
Hop aboard and catch incredible panoramic views with an expert tour guide as your chauffeur and narrator. You will begin by exploring the National Mall to observe the United States Capitol, White House, Thomas Jefferson Memorial, Martin Luther King Jr., Memorial, and much more while passing by and learning about other significant landmarks. What’s more, you will pass through Embassy Row, Georgetown, and Northern Virginia along scenic routes.
This tour operates year-round, rain or shine. The glass top, when closed, is completely waterproof and air-tight, so sudden weather or temperature changes are never a problem.
For a unique experience, this tour offers a leisurely cruise on the Potomac River (seasonal: Apr 1 to Oct 15).
