Enjoy the fragrant, fluffy blooms of the famous Washington cherry blossom with this short springtime tour, which includes a guided walk around the Tidal Basin!
Our cheerful cherry blossom tour, Washington DC, starts at the U.S. Navy Memorial and is available between March 18 and April 31. You’ll start with a ride in one of our comfortable, climate-controlled minibuses to take in some crucial sights of the city. Meanwhile, your entertaining guide will tell fruity tales of the Washington cherry blossom trees. First planted over 100 years ago, these trees served as a special gift to unite the Empire of Japan and the USA, and they have featured regularly in the city’s storied past ever since.
After passing by the Japanese Internment Memorial and President Taft Memorial, you’ll reach the peaceful scenery of Hains Point. You’ll then take a stroll in the early spring sunshine underneath clouds of candyfloss pink, as you are guided around the Tidal Basin underneath the iconic trees themselves. Finally, you’ll reach the Japanese Lantern Shrine, where DC’s oldest and most prized blossom can be found.
