Did the Pentagon tour today and thoroughly enjoyed it. This is a must. The tour guides all serving members of the US forces were fantastic. Very informative, do yourselves a favor and book a tour!

The Pentagon is an impressive place but since its a military installation there are a ton of rules including no pictures. This is definitely something to see but no photos. Watch the commuters as they pour in and pour out.

I was fortunate to be able to visit the Pentagon as part of a military event for survivors of those who died in service. This was an awe inspiring visit.

Very informative tour!!! The quirky highlight for me is that the tour guide walks backward the entire time!!! This does take some pre planning before your trip. You have to request a tour and be cleared through security 2-3 weeks prior to your visit. You...More

We were very pleased with our tour guide. It was well worth the trip. Be aware that you have to schedule a tour well in advance and pass rigorous security clearance (as it should be).
