Washington D.C., District of Columbia
First of all, forget the Capitol tour reserved for you in advance , the bus driver dropped you off on one side and you walk around to the other to stand in a giant line to get into the visitors center to stand in another line to get a tour - nothing is reserved And that was the selling point for us in taking the tour. It took over 40 minutes to even start the tour of the Capitol. We scheduled this tour on Day 2 of our visit as it wasn't offered on Sunday. We scheduled what we were going to see on Day 1 based on the tour description. Imagine our surprise when some of sights listed on this tour were skipped and we stopped at places that we had already seen the day before. What a waste of the little time we had in DC. Even at the start the location was so badly described that when arriving 20 minutes early at Union Station, we barely made it to the counter by 8. The bus didn't leave until after 8:30 so we spent another half hour in a bus terminal inhaling diesel fumes. We also spent a good 20 minutes waiting on the bus for people that couldn't make it back on time. The one good note was that the driver was very accommodating and dropped us off at the end at one of the Museums that we thought we were going to see earlier in the day.
