Highlights from the Washington DC private tour
If you plan a trip to the Nations Capital and want to cover all the major attractions, you will surely need to book the Washington DC private tour with SEE DC Today.
We cover the following places as a part of our tours and excursion:
World War 2 Memorial
The WWII Memorial was dedicated in 2004 at the site of the Rainbow Pool. You can see the names of battles, quotes from presidents and generals, and scenes from each front throughout the memorial. The Atlantic and Pacific arches also work like the entrances to walk into the memorial.
The memorial is divided into north and south sides with Victory Towers that represent the Atlantic and Pacific fronts in World Word II.
The U.S. Capitol Building is one of the most recognizable buildings in the world and home to the United States House of Representatives and Senate.
Presently free guided tours of the inside of the US Capitol have been suspended because of Covid restrictions but walking the grounds of the US Capitol is still one of the most popular things to do in Washington, DC, by DC locals and visitors alike. In about an hour you can walk the park-like gardens and visit the scene of past Inaugurations. On the east side, you’ll be treated to a view of the Library of Congress, the US Supreme Court, and the east front of the US Capitol- planned originally to be the front of the Capitol building. The Capitol grounds are well lit and open 24/7.
Thomas Jefferson Memorial
The Thomas Jefferson Memorial is one of the unique attractions of the Washington DC Private Tours because of its location and architecture. You can see a beautiful and shimmering image of the memorial on the water on a moonlit night. It is joined by blooming cherry blossom trees during the spring.
It is an adaptation of Neoclassical architecture favored by Thomas Jefferson himself. The structure is present on the National Mall’s Tidal Basin, a large body of water bordered by DC’s famous cherry blossom trees.
Thomas Jefferson was a man with several talents. He was a lawyer, scientist, linguist, politician, book collector, farmer, architect, and diplomat.
He is mainly known as the 3rd US President. He was also the author of the first draft of the Declaration of Independence. The open-air, white-columned structure houses a 19-foot bronze statue of Jefferson, standing to welcome the visitors. Rest assured, you’ll have a nice time here.
The grand Lincoln Memorial towers over the Reflecting Pool and anchors the western end of the National Mall. The best way to enter the memorial is from the east, passing by the Washington Monument and the World War II Memorial.
This path will put you at the edge of the Reflecting Pool, a shimmering expanse that best illuminates the grand structures. You can take a stroll toward the memorial and watch as it eventually gets larger.
Ancient Greek temples inspire this design. There are 36 columns, and each one represents one state in the U.S. at the date of President Lincoln’s death. The memorial itself is 190 feet long, 119 feet wide and almost 100 feet tall.
Washington DC is synonymous with the White House, and it needs no introduction. Unless you are living under a rock, you must have heard about it. George Washington opted for the site of the White House in 1791.
George Washington held a national competition to find an architect for the Presidents House. An Irish born architect, James Hoban won. The White House was completed in 1800. More importantly, our guide will be with you throughout the Washington DC Private Tours to answer all your questions.
