Full description
Begin your day with early morning pickup at a location of your choice between Lower Manhattan and 125th St. Be greeted by your professional, bilingual tour guide, then travel for around 4–5 hours to Washington, DC, the current capital of the United States. Upon arrival, visit the Iwo Jima Memorial, which honors the US Marines raising the American flag in a famous photograph at the battle of Iwo Jima, Japan. Continue to the impressive Lincoln Memorial dedicated to the president who promoted the abolition of slavery in the United States. Washington D.C. is the center for all 3 branches of the U.S. government. During this tour, stop for a classic outside view of the seat of two of them: the White House and the Capitol Building. Conclude the Washington leg of your tour with free time for lunch on your own and a possible short visit to a museum. Your next destination is the first-ever U.S. capital: Philadelphia, PA. Re-board your comfortable motorcoach for an approximate 3-hour journey. Arrive directly in Philadelphia's historic Old City neighborhood. Make your first stop at the Independence National Historical Park where your guide will lead you on a brief walking tour. Enjoy 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 States. Your visit to Philadelphia concludes with a stop at the Rocky Steps, in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. 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 motorcoach for the return to New York.
