What to expect

Your day will begin with an early morning departure from Times Square in Manhattan, where you’ll be greeted by your professional tour guide for the day.

Your first destination will be the nation's current capital, Washington, DC (travel time is approximately 4-5 hours) where your tour will begin with a visit to the Iwo Jima Memorial, dedicated to honor the US Marines by depicting a famous photograph taken during World War II, the raising of the American flag at the battle of Iwo Jima, Japan . You will continue with a visit to the impressive Lincoln Memorial honoring the president who promoted the abolition of slavery in the United States.

Washington D.C. is the center for all three branches of the U.S. government. During this tour you will stop for a classic outside view of the seat of two of them: the White House, home and office of the U.S. President and the Capitol Building, home of the U.S. Congress and where the laws of this country are made. Your visit to Washington concludes with free time for lunch on your own and a possible short visit to one of the Smithsonian museums, the world famous National Air and Space Museum.

Your next destination is the first ever U.S. capital, chosen during the Revolutionary War: Philadelphia. You'll re-board your comfortable motor coach for an approximately 3 hour journey. You'll arrive directly to Philadelphia's historic Old City neighborhood. Your first stop will be at the Independence National Historical Park where your guide will lead you on a brief walking tour. You will have the opportunity to see some of the main historical sites such as the Liberty Bell, the famous symbol of America's independence, and Independence Hall, the birthplace of the United State. It was within its walls that America's founding documents - the Declaration of Independence (July 4, 1776) and Constitution - were debated and adopted. Your visit to Philadelphia concludes with a stop at the Rocky Steps, in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, where you'll have an opportunity to re-enact the famous scene from the 1976 movie by ascending to the top of the steps.

At the end of the day, relax on board your motor coach for the return to Times Square in Manhattan arriving between 10.00pm and 10.30pm.
