Day 01
Washington, DC

New York - Princeton University - Philadelphia - Washington, D.C.

Hotel: Comfort Inn, MD / Days Inn, MD or similar

In the morning, we will visit Princeton University, one of the prestigious Ivy League universities in United States. A guided campus tour will give our guests the opportunity to know more about American education culture (admission not included).

Then we will head to the National Independence Historical Park in Philadelphia. While walking on the cobblestone streets, it seems that you could still hear the rings by the Liberty Bell, which has witnessed the founding history of America. Independence Hall (exterior, reverse side of $100 bill), is the birthplace of American modern democracy, where the Declaration of the Independence and the Constitution was debated and adopted. Next we will visit One Liberty Observation Deck (admission not included), which is the only observation deck in Philadelphia. Guests will stand on the shoulder of Philadelphia's 'giant', Benjamin Franklin, to see the historic city through a splendid 360-degree view.

In the afternoon, we will head to Washington D.C., and visit the Madame Tussands in Washington D.C. which is the only attraction you can get close to the “44 presidents” of US (admission not included).

Next, we will visit the White House (exterior only). We will also visit the U.S. Department of Treasury (exterior only), Lincoln Memorial, Korean War Memorial and Vietnam War Memorial. Lincoln Memorial is built in recognition of the great efforts of President Abraham Lincoln for American human rights, and the famous speech “I Have a Dream” by Martin Luther King Jr. took place right outside Lincoln Memorial.

Due the early sunset during winter time, we will visit Lincoln Memorial after dusk.

If you choose to be picked up in Philadelphia, you will miss the Princeton University tour.

    I want to know the difference between your products, Code 29-598 and Code 81-5204. Although they appear similar, the price difference would indicate significant differences between them. Thank you 07/24/2017 06:18:41

    Dear Cecil,

    Thanks for your interest at Tours4fun.

    Please note that these two tours look almost the same, because they enjoy the similar tour route.
    Actually, the two tours differ to the tour operator, the hotel accommodation and the specific itinerary of each day.

    The Product Code: 81-5204 is more economical than the Product Code: 29-598, but there are many attractions need to pay, which is not included in the total tour price:

    Admissions and optional tours (Prices may vary from season to season and is subject to the final box-office price. All optional tours that include a service fee must be paid for in cash before joining the tour.):
    Some attractions will be closed during Holidays or events(eg. Christmas, Thanksgiving), the arrangement is subject to your tour guide.
    - Princeton University : $10.00/Adult; $8.00/Child(3-12); $10.00/Senior (65+)(It will be closed on major US holidays (such as Thanksgiving, Christmas and Memorial Day). )
    - Amish Village Guided Tour: $20.00/Adult; $13.00/Child(3-12); $20.00/Senior(65+)(It will be closed on major US holidays (such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year and Memorial Day). )
    - Amish Dinner: $18.00/Adult; $18.00/Child(3-12); $18.00/Senior(65+)(Subject to guide's arrangement. It will be closed on major US holidays (such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year and Memorial Day). )
    - Washington, D.C. Cruise: $26.00/Adult; $18.00/Child(2-12); $23.00/Senior(65+)(It will be closed on major US holidays (such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year and Memorial Day). )
    - Madame Tussauds Washington, D.C.: $23.00/Adult; $17.00/Child(3-12); $23.00/Senior(65+)
    Tour guides and drivers rely upon the service fees charged on the tour to supplement their income. The wages of tour guides and drivers are determined factoring in that they will receive service fees to augment their earnings. Please pay at least the recommended service fee because the tour guides and drivers work hard to accommodate many people on the tour.

    Is there other drop-off point in Manhattan aside from the Chinatown #90 Bowery St. or closer to Port Authority.
