Stop At: Capitol Hill, First St and East Capitil St NE, Washington DC, DC 20004

Visit the beating heart of Washington DC where two of the three branches of the United States government meet. This tour includes the stunning exteriors of the Supreme Court, the Library of Congress, and the Capitol. Walk the grounds designed by Frederick Law Olmsted who designed Central Park in New York City. Go inside the Thomas Jefferson building of the Library of Congress designed as a temple of knowledge (and to prove the United States understood Art, Culture, and Sophistication as well as any country in Europe.) While there check out a real Gutenberg Bible, this copy is one of only four complete Gutenberg Bibles printed on vellum, in the world. You will also learn about Thomas Jefferson’s love of books and how his collection became the seed from which the world’s largest library grew. Learn about the judicial system within the elegant marble halls at the Museum of the Supreme Court, and maybe get a peek inside the actual courtroom. Your guide will end the tour providing access passes (and information about security protocols) for the visitor’s galleries of the current chambers for the House of Representatives and or the Senate, to be seen at your leisure.

The capital of the United States, the playground of politicians and presidents, is just as enticing for tourists who want to experience a slice of American history. Our English speaking guides organize private and small group tours to the city’s most important institutions, like the National Museum of American History and the Air and Space Museum. Rub elbows with senators as you stroll the historical monuments on the Mall and learn about the iconic figures buried at Arlington National Cemetery.

Very informative tour. We had Bess as our tour guide and she was enthusiastic about several things and gave us lots of information about the history of the Library of Congress Building, Supreme Court Building, and Capitol Building. All of the buildings were beautiful and well worth the entire tour. It's a must see attraction if you are in Washington DC for vacation.
Awesome!!!

Eu recomendo essa visita privada. O guia fez seu melhor: visitamos a Suprema Corte com sua história, O Congresso americano, inclusive o plenário da Câmara dos Deputados, passamos por um túnel que nos levou á Biblioteca do Congresso, tudo com explicação histórica. A visita foi além do esperado.E de quebra visitamos a Biblioteca de Shakespeare. Foi uma visita maravilhosa.
