On the day of your tour please present your voucher at the Gray Line ticket window on the bus level of the parking garage at Union Station. To get to the bus level, you will go to the center rear of Union Station and go up an escalator, then out the doors leading to the parking garage. Just outside those doors is a second escalator and we are located at the top on the left, inside the Greyhound Building. Please arrive approximately 30 minutes prior to your assigned departure time (7 pm). Please note that you will be riding an open-top double decker bus, unless there is inclement weather, in which case we will try to switch up and provide a closed-top motorcoach

What to remember
  • You must be present at Grayline's Union Station office by 7 pm at the latest to guarantee ridership on the tour. Once the tour departs, guests cannot join along the route. You should arrive between 6:30-6:45 pm to check in properly.
  • The drivers are licensed DC sightseeing guides, but they do not get off and accompany you to each memorial, as they are responsible for the motor coach itself.
  • On the day of your tour, please present your voucher at the Gray Line ticket window on the bus level of the parking garage at Union Station. Other closures may occur due to events in DC shutting down too many streets.
