This highlight tour of Capitol Hill brings the political center of Washington DC alive with stories & trivia. Our Capitol Hill & Library of Congress Tours bring you to the top of "the Hill."

Jenkins Hill, as it was called, was thought to be an ideal location to build our Congress House. As the government holdings and staff expanded, the Library of Congress' Jefferson Building, the Supreme Court Building, and Congressional office buildings were built here.

This tour enters both the Library of Congress and the Capitol Building.

You will be required to go through security twice. Please be prepared - our tickets are timed and if you are delayed going through security, the group will need to proceed without you. This tour is not refundable and cannot be rescheduled.

-Guided tour is 2 hours then the Capitol Interior Tour is an additional 50 minutes
-Each guest needs a full ticket (regardless of age)

What a once in a lifetime experience visiting the Capitol and the library of Congress with our guide Ingeborg. We were visiting from overseas and would never have been able to learn and see so much without this tour. Highly recommend and do book early because we know they have limited seats for the interiors visit.

Nous avons eu une visite guidée du Capitole avec Dan. Ce fut une superbe expérience. Nous avons adoré. Dan était à l’écoute et était très interessant. De plus, il nous a bien fait rire. Sa formation en histoire rend la visite exceptionnelle.
