New York - Washington D.C. - New York
Summary of The Day: Departing from New York in the morning, we are heading to our nation’s Capital, Washington D.C. for cherry blossom sightseeing.
We will visit the Jefferson Memorial.The 96-foot memorial is noted for its circular marble steps, portico, a circular colonnade of Ionic order columns and a shallow dome, which is an obvious nod to the Pantheon of Rome.It also mirrors the University of Virginia rotunda, a structure designed by Jefferson himself. Inside the grand memorial stands a 19-foot statue of Thomas Jefferson and excerpts he authored can be found on the interior wall: "I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man."The memorial is located by the Tidal Basin, from where you will have a stunning view of the Cherry Blossom blooming along the shore during the time.Donated by Japan as a gift of friendship and peace, the Cherry Blossom trees in DC have graced the Tidal Basin and Potomac Waterfront over 100 years.
Later you will have a chance to take the*D.C. Cherry Blossom Cruise for sightseeing along the Potomac River. With a backdrop of full blooming cherry trees on the banks of the Potomac River, you can also see most iconic landmarks in the area: the Pentagon, Washington memorial, Air Force Memorial and so on. The cruise offers a best way to view the capital city being surrounded by cherry blossom!
*The estimate drop off time will be around 11:30pm or later.
- Each year, the National Cherry Blossom Festival celebrates spring in Washington, DC. As for this year, the official schedule is March 20 – April 16, 2017. However, the view of the cherry blossom is subject to change due to weather conditions. Furthermore, reservation is not available for the Cherry Blossom Cruise based on the busy season in D.C. The cruise tour is subject to change regarding the cruise company’s schedule as well as the tourist volume. In case that cruise was not in service, we will go to the renowned Madame Tussauds’ President Gallery instead.

Thank you for your inquiry.
Any special requests to sightsee independent of the tour group will be a matter of coordination with the tour guide during the travel date. Note that any transportation required for sightseeing outside of what is included in the itinerary will be at your own expense.
