About the Tour

Join us for this fascinating exploration of Washington, DC and the neighboring mid-Atlantic crossroads. You’ll visit the landmark areas, monuments and museums of Washington, DC, then head out to explore the charming DelMarVA Peninsula, where Delaware, Maryland and Virginia intersect. Meet hardworking Chesapeake crab and clam fishermen, see the famous wild ponies of Assateague and Chincoteague, visit major military institutions, and relive the days of our country’s founding from George Washington’s Mt. Vernon home to Lewes, DE, “the first city in the first state”. Visit one of America’s top boardwalks at Rehoboth Beach, a top mushroom farm, a Quaker Meeting House, a formal High Tea at the elegant Hotel Du Pont, a master boat-building school, and more!
