Here, you'll head up to the Top of the Rock Observation Deck to take in wonderful views of the city. From here you'll see Central Park to the north, and if you look south you'll see the Empire State Building and all the way down to lower Manhattan. We're just a few blocks away from the southern section of Central Park, and a horse-and-carriage ride, also included in this optional excursion, will give you a well-deserved rest.
After you've bid your horse and driver farewell, why not join your Tour Manager and your travelling companions on a walk down Fifth Avenue, dipping into the famous stores lining it.

The 'most historic square mile in the United States' features the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, Congress Hall and Christ Church, where George Washington and Benjamin Franklin once worshipped.

Today we'll discover the highlights of Washington DC on a guided tour. Iconic sights lining the National Mall to the Capitol Building include the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument, and of course, we'll make a stop at the White House.
