The best way to learn about Capitol Hill. Was able to see more since it was off season. The tour guide takes so much pride!

Decent a MUST see when visiting Washington D.C. Fantastic building with lots and lots of our history.

The tour is something else. The statues that states can send are surreal as they can choose who they think. All the likenesses look like they were forged in Hollywood not like European Statues.

Do yourself a favor, if your a us citizen contact your Senator or Representative for a private tour, skip the lines, you get a tour guide and it’s FREE!

Tour was done with our Senator's summer intern and he did a great job! Absolutely love the tour which was different from the public tour....

We visited on a weekend in January and were struck by the dramatic views from every angle. In Spring or Fall it must be spectacular.

This was my second visit to Capitol Hill, and I was still in awe. The architecture, the beauty of it all, I cannot put it into words. Make sure you schedule a tour of Capitol Hill through your Representative 3 months ahead of your visit.

We have rebooked an 11am reservation. Due to size of queue and security checks we got to the desk at 11.04am. Allow at least half hour for queuing and back check. We only allowed 20. You can't take any food or drinks in with you....More

This was one of many hotspots we visited in Washington. We really enjoyed the audio tour and talk by the guide. Worth a visit, impressive building and very interesting.

It is worth the tour even if the scaffolding is still up.
