Beyond Group Travel

Springtime in Washington, D.C. Trip

March 19-23, 2020

We are thrilled to once again offer this program to Washington, D.C. during the beautiful cherry blossom season! Planned especially for our Beyond Group Travel clients, we will visit the iconic landmarks in our nation’s capital with time to explore world class museums that preserve our nation’s history. We will also take a behind-the-scenes tour of the home of one of our founding fathers, George Washington.

Join us to experience The District like an insider with exclusive access generously provided by friends who live and work there. This view of our nation’s capital is not to be missed!

Meet your fellow travelers this evening for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Following the reception, board a private motor coach and be joined by a charismatic local guide who will lead the group on a twilight tour of several famous National Monuments and Federal Buildings illuminated at night. Enjoy several stops, including the World War II Memorial, honoring the 16 million who served in the armed forces of the U.S., and over 400,000 who died.


Today you will enjoy exclusive, private access on “The Hill”, with the assistance of friends who live and work there! View areas of the U.S. Capitol Building and the Library of Congress that few visitors have the opportunity to experience. Lunch will be provided in a special area of the Capitol.

Enjoy the evening at your leisure. Dinner is on your own this evening.


This morning visit President Lincoln’s Cottage. This little-known cottage, on the grounds of the Soldiers’ Home, known today as the Armed Forces Retirement Home, is the most significant historic site directly associated with Lincoln’s presidency aside from the White House. During your private tour, you will experience Lincoln’s destiny and inspiration.

This evening, enjoy a private after-hours visit at Mount Vernon reserved exclusively for our guests. Step back in time to walk in George Washington’s footsteps during this personalized candlelight tour of his Mansion, with its stunning Potomac River views. Journey through the restored house as it would have looked back in 1799, including the rarely seen third floor. A private dinner will follow at a popular restaurant.


Morning is at your leisure to visit the many sites of Washington, D.C. This afternoon, the group will have an opportunity to visit Arlington National Cemetery for a private guided tour. Pass among the burial sites of over 400,000 people who have been laid to rest since the 1860’s including Presidents, Supreme Court justices and countless military heroes. See the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the final resting place for Unknowns from World War I, World War II, and the Korean War, located at the Memorial Amphitheater.

Tonight, join your fellow travelers for cocktails and dinner at a popular local restaurant.


This morning, enjoy a private tour of the Diplomatic Reception Rooms of the U.S. Department of State. Unbeknownst to many visiting our nation’s capital, these rooms have some of the greatest mirrors of America’s remarkable cultural accomplishments in fine and decorative arts of the 18th and 19th centuries. Here, visiting dignitaries, heads of state, foreign ministers, as well as other distinguished guests have been entertained officially for over 100 years.

Travelers Are Talking....

“Never thought going to Washington D.C. would "move" me. It was powerful! So surprising.”

     -Thomas & Debra Halling

“Springtime in Washington D.C. is a trip I highly recommend. You get to visit all the highlights of the D.C. area with the ease of being dropped at the door with guides waiting to give you a private tour. This trip is well suited for the traveler that has more limited time constraints to travel. Beyond Group Travel is an awesome tour company.”
