Make your way to a meeting point, then join a guide and group for reserved entry to the U.S. Capitol Building, skipping right past the admission lines.

After passing through security, watch a brief orientation film and explore the building with your guide, walking through the Crypt, Rotunda, and the National Statuary Hall. When the tour of the U.S. Capitol Building concludes, board a climate-controlled shuttle bus for a trip down the National Mall, a National Park lined with memorials and landmarks. Stop to see the White House from the North Lawn, and take in some of the most important memorials to presidents, national leaders, the military, and fallen soldiers.

Tour the National WWII Memorial and the monumental Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, then continue to the Lincoln Memorial to climb the famous steps to the President’s statue. See a moving tribute to the armed forces at the Korean War Veterans Memorial and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, then finish the day at the U.S. Navy Memorial, a centrally-located landmark that’s just off the National Mall.

Terrible, unknowledgeable tour guide

Tour guide made terrible attempt at humor. She didn’t know how to properly use a microphone in the bus and had no speaker outside. At one point we came to Lafayette Park and her only bit of information was the name of the park and that the statue was of Lafayette. I could have bought a map! I wish we could have walked away. Capitol tour was great but she wasn’t our guide.

This is a great tour. We started out with Christopher at the Capitol and were very impressed with him (ask him to name a statue from your state!). We thought we were going to be disappointed that he went with another group but we were wrong. Yanna is amazing. She came to USA in 1974 and must have spent a lot of time absorbing American history. She was extremely knowledgeable but also very entertaining. She’s just precious too. Other things that are great about the tour are the small groups and air conditioned buses. Can’t go wrong with that in the DC summer heat and humidity!
