Nowhere else in the United States has such an incredible concentration of historical monuments and high-profile government buildings. As your students tour the city, they will take in the immensity of our country’s national treasures. School trips to Washington DC are thoroughly educational and invigorating for young minds.
Washington DC tours feature excursions to the White House, the Capitol Buiding, the Smithsonian and Arlington National Cemetery. Most visitors spend several days in the Distric of Columbia, as the city offers countless incredible sights and excursions for students. The city is host to almost 180 foreign embassies, creating the perfect opportunity for school groups to learn about the United States in a global context.
