Itinerary

This itinerary is the starting point for your tour, but it’s not set in stone. If there are days you would like to change, or specific places you’d like to go, we can work with you to create a personalized program that fits the needs of you and your students.

Day 1: Washington, DC

Welcome to the Nation’s Capital! After meeting your Tour Manager at the hotel, be ready to catch your first glimpse of some of the amazing monuments and institutions here on your illuminated tour after dinner. You’ll get to visit the memorials of some of the country’s greatest leaders like Jefferson, FDR and Martin Luther King.

Day 2: Washington, DC

Begin your day with a visit to the remarkable United States Holocaust Memorial Museum to learn about the times leading up to, during and aftermath of this time in world history. After a lunch stop, visit the Grant Memorial and pause for a group photo in front of the U.S. Capitol followed by a guided tour. Please note: ACIS will make every effort to secure your group a tour at the U.S. Capitol; if this is not possible, groups will visit the Supreme Court or Library of Congress. Following dinner, pay homage to those who served in the Korean and Vietnam Wars with a visit to the Memorials. The evening will end with a visit to the Lincoln Memorial honoring the 16th President of the United States.

Day 3: Washington, DC

Start today by visiting the International Spy Museum and access the world's largest collection of international espionage artifacts ever placed on public display. Following lunch, transfer to the South Lawn of the White House for a photo opportunity of this famous landmark, then spend the afternoon visiting your choice of Smithsonian Museums on the National Mall. Whether you're most interested in history, space or art there truly is something to appeal to everyone with the many choices of museums. Tonight, put on your dance shoes and get ready to dine and dance the evening away on a Potomac River Cruise.

Day 4: Departure

Breakfast at the hotel, followed by a visit to the hallowed ground of Arlington National Cemetery. You’ll get to witness the Changing of the Guard ceremony and watch the many intricate steps of this elaborate ritual.
