"Partnering with CityXplora makes booking a DC Trails tour very simple and quick, and we look forward to welcoming their first eager customers."
DC Trails operate five main sightseeing tours in and around Washington DC, principle amongst which is the comprehensive Grand Tour. This 7 hour experience features a live English-speaking guide, frequent on-foot portions, and all of the US capital's most recognisable landmarks.
Popular amongst domestic travellers and foreign visitors alike is DC Trails' 5.5 hour Mount Vernon Bus Tour. Part shuttle, part time capsule, the coach bus takes a route covering various places of historical significance, from Old Town Alexandria to Robert E. Lee's boyhood home. Its terminus is George Washington's family residence and Virginia Plantation, owned and administered today by Mount Vernon Ladies' Association of the Union. DC Trails provide entry to the attraction as well as transport.
DC Trails is accredited by the US Department of Defence and Transportation for the quality of its service, both in terms of commentary and sightseeing coverage. In the past it has served organisations ranging local schools and universities to sports teams and Fortune 500 companies.
"Coach sightseeing tours are as popular as ever in the US," said Iain Coupar, managing director of CityXplora. "Our exciting new partnership with DC Trails allows us to boost our online offer for the US capital, giving more choice to the national and international traveller."
